Teenager's Be Confident Out & About Pack

We know how important it is to feel confident and happy when you are out & about.

What's in the pack?:

  • Weighted Hoody: Available in 3 sizes suitable for teenagers and adults. (See size guide below). The weights can be removed to suit the user and are fully washable as is the hoody.
  • Ear Defenders: Fully adjustable, light weight, fold away design and available in a choice of high gloss colours (select using dropdown)
  • Chewbuddy™ Tubes - set of 2: Idea as a chew or fidget on the ends of the hoody cords.

This pack includes our very popular weighted hoody that offers all the therapeutic benefits of a weighted shoulder wrap or weighted blanket but can be worn outside or in the classroom with no-one knowing it's any different from a normal hoody.

Our fully adjustable ear defenders offer comfort for those that are sensitives to noises and our Chewbuddy™ tubes fit nicely on the hoody draw strings to offer a fidget or oral chew.

    Who would benefit from the pack?: 

    This pack has been put together for teenagers and adults who need the deep pressure of weight to help provide body awareness and in turn reduce anxiety and help with concentration. The weight of the hoody offers a weight that has a 'calming and organising' effect on the body's proprioceptive system.  The hoody is a discreet way to do this whilst you walking around or at work/studying. 

    Those that are sensitive to noise and certain sounds can benefit from ear defenders to reduce those unwanted sounds and provide a safe space. Our ear defenders are very popular and the feedback from our customers are that they are very comfortable even to those that are sensitive to things placed on their head and face.  (See full details below). They are also light weight and can be folded away into your bag or pocket.


    Weighted Hoody Full Description:

    Sensory Direct's Weighted Hoody provides a discreet weighted solution, perfect for fashion conscious teens and young people. These Weighted Hoodies are designed to provide all the therapeutic benefits of a weighted jacket in a cool, wearable style.

    Recommended by Occupational Therapists to help those with poor body awareness, the weight is often found to reduce anxiety and aid focus and concentration. The deep pressure provided has a 'calming and organising' effect on the body's proprioceptive system.

    The inner lining of our Hoodies contains a total of seven pockets which are strategically placed for the insertion of weights - discreetly located on the shoulders, around the waist and in the hood. All weights are removable for easy washing.

    We are passionate about the quality of our products and the hoodies are no exception - made from high quality material in a fashionable design so they do not stand out as a therapeutic aid.
