There is nothing quite like escaping the day-to-day monotony for an adventure in the great outdoors. Whether you’re heading out for a day-long hike, packing up the car for a weekend fishing trip or even just looking to spend a night under the stars, now more than ever, people are looking for ways to safely get away and unplug from the world.But as relaxing and revitalizing as it is to spend time in outdoors, it also brings with it some serious safety concerns. Luckily, there is some inexpensive and effective gear that can give you peace of mind.Check out how these products are designed to help you to handle anything life throws at you.
Sound the Alarm
Whether you’re heading out on your own or with a group, it’s important to have a tool in your arsenal that can alert those around you or help you in the event that you get turned around. A simple whistle is an easy solve, as it packs light and can be heard over the everyday sounds of nature. However, if you’re looking for an option that packs a stronger punch, SABRE, the leading provider of personal safety products offers a wide range of personal alarms. The Personal Alarm with Clip & LED Light is a compact, waterproof and user-friendly device that features a 120 dB alarm that can be heard from up to 600 ft away.
Shine a Light
It might seem obvious but carrying a battery-powered light source is an essential safety tool to pack for your day. Even if you’re just heading out for an afternoon hike, having a flashlight or headlamp helps ensure your safety in the event that you’re stuck in the dark. If your adventure is confined to late nights or early mornings on city streets, reflective or flashing gear is the best way to ensure passersby’s can see you on the road.
New Safety Tech
Whether you are a seasoned pro or amateur outdoorsman, it’s important to take that extra step to ensure your safety on the trails. There are a variety of personal safety products that are both effective and easy to use. SABRE provides customers with an extensive range of pepper sprays and gels that help instill confidence and peace of mind whenever you walk out the door. For that extra level of security, SABRE’s newly launched Smart Spray and App is an ideal solution. The Bluetooth enabled app connects with the Smart Pepper Spray and is designed to send alerts to up to five pre-assigned contacts through SMS text messaging, upon deployment of the spray. The alerts inform your contacts that you may be in danger and your GPS location.
It can be easy to get caught up on bringing the right fishing lure or latest hunting gear, but it is important to remember to take the necessary steps to always ensure your safety no matter where your path takes you.
