The SmartWeight® Weighted Vest is an innovative and modern alternative to heavy, cumbersome, and confusing weighted backpacks and vests of yesterday. Rather than pockets of weight along the perimeter, SmartWeight® Technology is evenly distributed and therefore weight does not shift or fall to the bottom. There are no weight calculations needed or bean/sandbags to lose (or get thrown).
Because it’s reversible and easy to wear, it’s great for freedom of movement. Wear open or closed, frontwards or backwards. Quickly goes on and off with magnetic closures, making your SmartWeight® Vest practical for all abilities, challenges, and lifestyles.*
Designed to help promote relaxation and fight stress and anxiousness through the power of deep touch pressure, our weighted vest uses our patented SmartWeight® Technology to distribute weight consistently to more touchpoints on your body through our 2-inch square design—helping your body’s natural relaxation and stress-fighting mechanisms get to work.
Expand your full capabilities.
Rather than behavior modification as a goal, opt for a sense of felt safety, connection, and co-regulation with SmartWeight® Technology which includes no time limits or heavy constraints.*

PRODUCTS / USAGE:
Who will Benefit from SmartWeight® Weighted Products?
Touching more touch points in such a gentle and targeted way means your body is getting “just right” input with a goal of felt safety, calm, comfort, and focus. CapeAble® products may benefit those seeking help with stress, sleep disruption, anxiousness, co-regulation, connection and resilience. However, please follow all user size and age recommendations, and consult with your physician about any concerns before use to ensure a safe experience.

What Products Should I Get?
CapeAble products are versatile and can be used in many ways. For all night sleep (when horizontal), start with our weighted blanket collection. For daytime use while you are on the go (upright or reclining), try weighted wearables (vests, capes, wraps, and scarves).
If you are unsure, please ask us. We love to help you choose.
We want you to be 100% satisfied with your CapeAble products.
See our 100-Day 100% Guarantee below.
How Do I Choose a Vest or Cape?
The cape provides a calming, hug-like compression around the shoulders and upper arms, front and back. The vest activates more touch points on the entire torso, front and back and can be worn open or closed.
For the gentle squeeze of compression, reference the size chart on the product page for a snug fit. Consider if your goal is the weight only and/or compression when choosing your size.
Both the vest and the cape are reversible and stay in place with hidden magnetic closures and allow for great freedom of movement.
Not sure which to get? Ask. We love helping you decide.
How Long Can I Use My Weighted Products?
The CapeAble® SmartWeight® Advantage ensures that even our heaviest products have evenly distributed weight. This means you’ll never need to worry about setting a time limit when you use our products.
However, please follow all user size and age recommendations, and consult with your physician about any concerns before use to ensure a safe experience.
How Can I Warm or Cool my CapeAble Products?
Enjoy your products warm from the dryer or medical blanket warmer/cabinets. We cannot recommend microwaving as it has not been tested for safety. Products with magnets should never be microwaved. For cooling (scarves especially), pop them in the freezer (in a plastic bag to avoid smell transfer).
How Do Weighted Blankets Work?
CapeAble® weighted blankets utilize the scientific principles of Deep Pressure Touch to promote relaxation and improve sleep quality, with the aim of achieving a calmer, happier, and less stressed state of being. Research shows that when weighted pressure is applied, the body’s stress-fighting mechanisms are activated and begin to encourage a calming response.
What Are the Wellness Benefits of a Weighted Blanket?
CapeAble® SmartWeight® Products may help to:
- Provide relief for sensory issues
- Reduce stress and anxious feelings
- Prepare for a restful, sound sleep by activating “relax” mode
How are CapeAble® Weighted Blankets Different?
Our patented SmartWeight® Technology helps ensure weight is evenly and precisely distributed through a grid of 2” squares. With this weighted “drape” that hugs every curve of the body, increased contact and consistent weighted pressure helps to optimize the benefits of Deep Pressure Touch for an improved state of wellbeing and maximum comfort.
The SmartWeight® Advantage also helps to reduce bunching and the “bean bag effect” that could occur with uneven weight distribution. With even weight distribution, one can enjoy the feeling of a secure hug while still having the freedom to move.
How Heavy Should My Blanket Be?
SmartWeight® Technology uses less weight more effectively for a more targeted touch. Current research tells us it's the weight distribution per inch that matters, not your weight or the weight of the blanket. Being heavy isn't the goal. The goal is Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) to reach the 3rd layer of the skin with a just-right, instant comfort similar to receiving a hug. For guidance and special orders for a heavier weight, contact us at CARE@CapeAble.com
What Size Blanket Should I Buy?
CapeAble® SmartWeight® blankets are designed to cover just you in whatever mattress size you have and in general are smaller than the mattress top and therefore also smaller than your bedspread/comforter/blankets. You won’t want any overhang (the law of gravity at work).
Why Shouldn’t People Share a Weighted Blanket for Sleep?
CapeAble® SmartWeight® blankets are designed for individual use. This is important for the very best night sleep to reap all the possible benefits from the therapeutic principals and power of Deep Touch Pressure.
However, if you’re just relaxing on the couch or snuggling with someone, sharing your weighted blanket extends some benefit to them too!
How Do I Use My Weighted Blanket? Should I Use This on top of a Comforter?
Please keep in mind that weighted blankets are not designed to be used as a comforter or bedspread. Layering a weighted blanket on top of a comforter will trap body heat, making it difficult to enjoy restorative rest. We recommend layering your weighted blanket on top of a single top sheet.
How Can I Keep from Getting Too Hot?
CapeAble® SmartWeight® blankets are designed for year-round comfort. In fact, we've even been told that our blankets aren’t warm enough. However, it is important to remember, if you are a hot sleeper, your body heat may be trapped under any blanket or sheet you use, whether weighted or not.
