Jr. Cool Vest System™ (Child’s weighted vest plus Cape & Hood) .5 to 12 lb. Weighted Vest (Supplied at 3.25 lbs. with 11- 1/4lbs weights)
Jr. Cool Vest System™ comes with IRONWEAR’s ™ new patented weighted vest designed exclusively for children plus the Jr. Cool Vest Hood and Cape™. The Jr. Cool Vest System™ was created to make wearing a weighted vest more fun, comfortable and effective.
Jr. Cool Vest™ is part of IRONWEAR’s ™ Cool Vest Line™, so in addition to the Jr. Cool Vest™ there are matching adult Cool Vests™. This makes it possible for both the child and the caregiver to wear the same style vest. By wearing matching vests the child may have an easier time accepting the weighted vest. A caregiver who wears a weighted vest also increases their understanding of the effects of wearing weights. As a side benefit the caregiver can use their weighted vest to improve their own physical condition.
Jr. Cool Vest’s™ unique design contours to the shape of a child’s body, allows air to flow through it to keep the child comfortable, expands to support a wide range of sizes to grow with the child, is safer for the child and others, and is packed with features to make wearing the Jr. Cool Vest™ fun.
Jr. Cool Vest™ contours to the shape of the child’s body and bends with their every move. The Jr. Cool Vest™ incorporates all the latest patented IRONWEAR™ form fitting features. The ultra thin Contour-fit™ design conforms to the curves of the back, front and sides. The patented soft Flex-metal™ weights bend easily to constantly match the movements of the body.
Jr. Cool Vest™ allows air to flow through, to help keep the child comfortable. The Jr. Cool Vest™ is constructed of soft athletic mesh that is durable and easy to clean. The design helps to keep the child from overheating.
Jr. Cool Vest™ expands easily to accommodate a wide range of sizes. The Jr. Cool Vest™ adjusts easily to fit most children between 2 and 9 years of age, weighing less than 100 pounds. The unique design allows the Jr. Cool Vest™ to fit the child’s growing body well for years, so you do not need to buy new vests as the child grows or to buy multiple vest sizes to fit different children.
Jr. Cool Vest™ unique shoulder design keeps the vest in position comfortably. The Jr. Cool Vest™ has a zipper opening that allows the vest to slide over the child’s head and positions the vest properly on the child’s shoulders. The wide padded shoulder straps spread out the load to make carrying weight easier and less noticeable to the child.
Jr. Cool Vest™ helps to support the child’s abdominal and back muscles. The Jr. Cool Vest™ incorporates IRONWEAR’s™ patented full waist support system. Two patented over-sized stretch belts snug the vest to the child’s body while not inhibiting their breathing or movements.
Jr. Cool Vest™ Contour-fit™ design is ultra thin and snug so that the vest will not interfere with the movement of the child’s body. The padded shoulders provide maximum flexibility, support and comfort. The Contour-fit™system makes it possible for the child to raise their arms completely, which means the vest can be used for all activities and play. The Jr. Cool Vest’s™ thin design can also be worn easily over or under clothing.
Jr. Cool Vest™ Double-lock™ belting system locks both the ends of the belts and the edges of the vest to prevent the vest from shifting during even the most rigorous play. The patented overlapping stretch belts hold the vest securely to almost any size child’s torso. The Jr. Cool Vest™ fits waist and chest sizes from 15 to over 30 inches. (Children with larger chest and waist sizes can wear the regular Cool Vest™.)
Jr. Cool Vest™ is easy to clean. The Jr. Cool Vest™ can be hand washed with the weights inside or machine washed with the weights removed. The porous design also allows the vest to dry quickly.
Jr. Cool Vest’s™ Stretch-fit™inner pockets hold the weights securely on all sides and keep them from shifting. The inner pocket design makes it impossible for the weights to come loose while you exercise. Because no hardware or Velcro is used to hold the weights in place, the vest is safer, longer lasting, thinner and more flexible.
Jr. Cool Vest™ accepts IRONWEAR’s™ patented Flex-metal™ weights which are the safest, most comfortable and best fitting weights possible. The weights are thin and flexible and contour to the shape of the child. In case of a fall the interchangeable weights act as padding to protect the child and those around them.
Jr. Cool Vest™ has 11 weight pockets to uniformly distribute the weight over the child’s torso. Each weight pocket will accept one or two ½ pound soft Flex-metal™ weights, or up to four ¼ pound soft Flex-metal™ weights. The vest is available as a shell or with ¼ or ½ pound weights. Vests supplied with weights have one weight per pocket. The vest shell itself weights approximately .5 pounds. The vest can be adjusted from .5 to 12 pounds by adding Flex-metal™ weights.
Jr. Cool Vest™ is supplied at approximately 3.25 pounds with a single layer of ¼ pound Flex-metal™ weights, but can be adjusted from 1 pound up to 12 pounds. The ¼ pound are very softer and more flexible than the ½ pound weights. The thinner ¼ pound weights allow the vest to be set up with a very thin layer of weights for the most uniform distribution and adjustability.
Jr. Cool Vest™ can be worn with the belts secured in the front so the child can put the vest on or take it off. Also the vest can be worn with the belts secured in the back to restrict removal by the child.
Jr. Cool Vest™ patented accessory system has many unique features. The vest includes integrated loop fasteners on the front and back onto which many things can be attached. The vest is supplied with 5 window holders for personalizing the vest. You can put in the child’s name, their favorite color, logo of their favorite super hero, or their own artwork in the holders that can be positioned all over the vest.
Jr. Cool Vest™ is set up to be fun with all kind of play accessories. You can make your own and Velcro them on or consider the different cape and hood accessories that we offer. These accessories pull off easily to help keep the child safe and excited about wearing their vest.
Jr. Cool Vest Hood and Cape™ both attache to IRONWEAR’s ™ new patented weighted vest designed exclusively for children. The Jr. Cool Vest Hood and Cape™ were created to make wearing a weighted vest a fun adventure.
Jr. Cool Vest Hood and Cape™ help to transform the child into a storybook character or superhero. The Jr. Cool Vest Hood™ make it easier for the child to accept and enjoy wearing the vest. From Little Red Riding Hood to Ninja Warrior, the child’s fantasies can come alive with the Jr. Cool Vest Hood and Cape™.

The Jr. Cool Vest Hood and Cape™ also come off easily to protect the child incase the hood or cape gets caught or is pulled. The Jr. Cool Vest Hood and Cape™ open designs will not catch on the child’s neck if they are pulled off.
Jr. Cool Vest Hood™ is big enough to cover a range of different size children’s heads. You can add holes to make it the mask of Zoro or with rubber bands you can add ears to make it into their favorite animal. The Jr. Cool Vest Hood™ can add mystery and excitement to wearing the vest.
Jr. Cool Vest Cape™ is long enough to be a cape, but for most children is not long enough to touch the ground or interfere with the child’s movements. The child can hold out the ends of the cape and imagine flying like a superhero in their superhero training vest.
