Personal Savers Wearable Pepper Spray

After taking a self defense class back in 2008 – you will RARELY find me in public without my pepper spray.  I literally get out of the car and put my finger on the trigger just WAITING for an attacker ;)My main reason for taking the unarmed self defense class was because I had just started running and I was paranoid about running alone.  Although you could consider carrying pepper spray being “armed” that’s besides the point ;)I always try to stress to my girls safety while running and desperately try to convince them to carry pepper spray when they run – but the thing I hear most often is “where do I put it?”  I usually run with mine in my hand, but I know that gets annoying for some people so I discovered I could clip it on my SPIBelt.Pepper Spray for runners and cyclist - runnign pepper spray from Personal SaversWell all that is a thing of the past now that I found out about Personal Savers!  I saw these brilliant little contraptions at the Georgia Marathon Expo this year.  I literally rounded the corner and I SWEAR I squealed!!  I almost jumped and hugged the guy standing there.I’ve been waiting for this EVER since I started running!!!!Oh yeah, better tell you what it is (if you can’t tell from the photo above) – Pepper Spray You Wear On Your Wrist!!!!!!!!!  Well, that’s the “Wrist Saver”, or they have one that will clip on to a SPIBelt or FuelBelt (the “Personal Saver”), and they even make a “Cycle Saver” for bikes!!!

I mean DUH.  I can’t believe someone didn’t think of this before!!!!!!   Doesn’t matter – the Personal Saver people thought of it and I could just KISS them!!

Pink Pepper Spray - Running or Cycling Pepper SprayThey just came out with PINK and they are super cute 😉

BUT WAIT (insert infomercial voice here) These aren’t JUST pepper spray wrist things….. they are also SUPER reflective with the silver trim, they contain a little pocket for ID information, AND they come with a little LED light thing!!!!!
That’s like 4 products in 1!!!!

Buy just one and it’s a great price – but if you get all 3 it’s a FANTASTIC price!!!

I went BACK to the expo and got 3 more for my mom and sister (and one to have as a spare) – I’m telling you – I LOVE these things and I WISH it was illegal to run without one!!!  I’ve heard too many sad stories lately about runners who were abducted or killed and anything I can do to spread the word on safety I’m ALL about.

Oh and now for the even better news!!
We are giving TWO Pink Wrist & Personal Saver packges!!!

A Great Safety Blog From TooTallFritz

Posted on April 19th, 2012

Share this posting, you could help save a life, some day.

Amanda at TooTallFritz wrote a great blog about personal safety and Personal Savers after they had a very scary incident with a local attacker.  Here’s a little of blog, but make sure to click read more at the bottom check out the full blog.

Safety 1st, 2nd & 3rd….Plus Giveaways

Just call me the “fact finder”. I think that’s an actual paid position for some publications but as a blog writer, the fact-finding job comes down to me, myself & I.

The fact-finding mission for today was to determine the validity of a message circling our local Facebook running club pages regarding the attack of a woman on the LaPorte Road access trail in Mokena. Status of the attack = TRUE. The woman had an incident where a man , whom she had previously seen riding a bike in dark sunglasses & a hoodie, approached her on foot/running and attempted to push/pull/drag her to the ground. She screamed and shoved him and he ran off. She was uninjured. The man was in his late teens/early 20s and has not been found.

The Will County Forest Preserve Police have jurisdiction over most of our trails, including this one. I have been assured that they have increased patrols and police presence on the trail and they are visible and alert. In response to the initial emergency call, they had 10-15 officers canvasing the trail the day of the attack; however, never managed to find the attacker. I was also assured by Mokena PD that although the trail is not their jurisdiction that they are more than willing to back up the Forest Preserve Police for assistance at any time.

If you have an emergency on the trail, please call 911 or the Will County Dispatch so they can dispatch the Forest Preserve Police. The Will Co Dispatch #: 815.727.6191, program that number in your cell now (pretty please?). If you have information regarding a situation on the trail that is non emergency, please call: 815.727.8700.

Although I hate to be redundant, I will once again address safety. If you need additional info or a full-fledged refresher, go to my original posts on safety: Tips on Running Safety HERE and Tips on Running in the Dark HERE.

Please be vigilant while running and make eye contact with everyone you encounter. Only use one ear bud with music so that you can hear what is going on around you/possibly coming up behind you. Run with a friend or a group, if possible.

Local Group Runs

If it’s not possible to run with a friend or group, then decide how you plan to best protect yourself if necessary. Think about what you would do if somebody approaches you and tries to knock you down for an assault. This is not supposed to scare you but help you THINK about what action you plan to take. For me, I have limited knowledge in self-defense and I have made the choice to carry pepper spray but above all, I am always “watching and listening” to what is going on around me. For pepper spray, I have chosen the Wrist Saver from PersonalSavers.com.

I know that pepper spray is not for everyone, I’m not saying its the right choice for you but I feel confident in my ability to use it correctly and be able to flee from an attacker with its aid. Look HERE for the proper ways to use/spray pepper spray so that you will know how to use it, and not lose it to your attacker.

PersonalSavers.com has generously donated a PINK Wrist Saver and a PINK Personal Saver for me to giveaway. The Wrist Saver attaches to your wrist via velcro (see the pic of mine above), bike handle, or stroller handle for easy access & use. It also has reflective accents, an id card and a small light.

The Personal Saver has both a key ring and a clip to attach to your waistband, hydration or Spi-Belt.

If you would like to order from PersonalSavers.com now, use the discount code: TTF for a $1.50 off your purchase and a free Personal Savers microfiber towel.

Personal Savers At The Georgia Marathon Expo

Buy Pepper Spray For WomenPersonal Savers Pepper Spray Booth At The Georgia Marathon Expo

I know this is a few weeks past but we wanted to share some photos with our customers of the Georgia Marathon Expo.  The expo was a huge success for Personal Savers with reaching over 15,000 people and educating everyone on pepper spray and personal safety while working out.

Women’s safety was a big topic of discussion throughout the expo.  Giving women a way to defend themselves from an attacker for such a lowest cost, was a big hit with economy being slow.

We would like thank everyone who stopped by and purchased a Wrist Saver, Personal Saver or Cycle Saver or simply just wanted to chat about safety and running.  We look forward to seeing everyone at the expo next year.

The question always is…Where Can I Buy Pepper Spray?

Cycle Saver Pepper Spray For Cycling

CYCLE SAVERS – PEPPER SPRAY FOR BIKES – CONQUERED THE DIRTY DUATHLON

This past weekend Personal Savers owners Chad Smith and Derek Downing tackled the Blankets Creek Dirty Duathlon in Canton, Georgia.  The Duathlon was a 5 mile trail run combined with a 11 mile mountain bike ride throughout the Blankets Creek trail system.   Chad and Derek completed the course with their Cycle Savers securely fastened and ready to use (but did not use them in the race).   Even the jagged rocks, slipper roots and crazy downhills couldn’t knock the Cycle Saver pepper spray bottle out of the mount. 

This was the first event that the new line of Pink Personal Savers pepper spray products were on display.  There was a lot of interest in the new line along with cyclist picking up Cycle Saver pepper spray units for their bikes at the booth. 

Mountain Goat Adventures, who put on the race handed out 40 Cycle Savers to all the top women finishers.  That means, there’s 40 more women who are safer out on the trails and road with the new Cycle Saver.   So, watch out attackers. 

Overall, it was great event and we would like to thank all the bikers, spectators and Mountain Goat Adventures for stoCycle Saver Pepper Spray For Bikingpping by the booth and putting on a great cycling event.

About Personal Savers


The idea for Personal Savers was born in 1995 by Derek Downing and Chad Smith, two national and world champion professional inline speed skaters. While training on the open roads in Georgia, they always came across unruly drivers and stray dogs nipping at their feet. Derek's father David Downing owned an in house pepper spray business that sold to police forces worldwide which helped spark the idea of the original Wrist Saver.

The original Wrist Saver was a crude version of itself today but the concept to keep people safe while being active was born. That idea grew into an actual company, but with the strains of traveling for competitions the business was put on hold...
