What does a camping trip in the woods have in common with taking the dog out for an evening walk? While both scenarios can feel like common, comfortable occurrences to most, they both also can require having the right self-defense tool handy in times of need.  

No matter how relaxing or routine an activity may be, they can also all come with potential risks and hazards. Rather than being caught off-guard by a possible threat, it’s worth researching common personal safety tools to help protect in whatever the scenario may be.  

Check out how these products are designed to help you to handle anything life throws at you.

For the Active Lifestyle

Whether you are training for a triathlon or simply looking to get your workout routine back on track after a long winter, outdoor activities can be a great way to stay active. And while many outdoor workouts are a great way to both get in shape and blow off some steam, they can also lead you to empty pathways or into isolated, poorly lit spaces.

Rather than feeling uneasy if you find yourself in an unfamiliar area, prepare for your next workout by packing the appropriate equipment. There are a number of easy-to-use, handheld defense products designed to accompany aspiring athletes in their training without being bulky or complicated. Products such as a Cyclist Pepper Spray with Adjustable Strap or the Runner Pepper Gel with Adjustable Hand Strap are a perfect match for nearly any outdoor workout.

For the Avid Camper

Spending just one night in the woods can be an adventurous experience unlike anything else. But even one night can present unpredictable dangers. While it’s important to survey your surroundings before setting up camp, it’s equally important to take a step before that and pack all the tools you need to make your overnight excursion a safe one.

Among the most reliable products you can bring with when camping is bear spray. Developed as a means of deterring bears, products such as the Frontiersman Bear Spray are able to create a safe distance between you and any looming wildlife threat with a 35-foot spray range. After all, ensuring you have bear spray in the wild is safer for you, the environment, and even the bear.

For the Daily Routine

Every day won’t be filled with outdoor adventures, which is why it is important to also take your daily safety habits into account, as well. For those looking to stay safe when running errands, walking to pick up food from their favorite restaurant, or just clear their mind after a long day at the office, SABRE’s newly launched SMART Pepper Spray is an ideal solution.

The Bluetooth enabled SMART Pepper Spray connects with the free SABRE Personal Safety App and is designed to send free text alerts to a user’s selected contacts to notify them when the spray has been deployed. An added continuous GPS tracking service through the app also provides an additional sense of peace for users.

SABRE also offers a premium version of the app. For $4.99, users can opt in to the premium monitoring service provided by Noonlight, a 24/7 certified call center that contacts the police and provides real-time location data to help the authorities locate and assist you when the pepper spray is used.

And while the SMART Spray is perfect for daily situations, it can also be brought along as an added safety precaution in most any situation, allowing for you and your loved ones to have peace of mind, no matter what you are doing.
