So maybe most of us won’t be accompanied by an expert wildlife handler when we go exploring in the woods. But we can
learn something from Jack Hanna–– carry pepper spray!

Last Saturday, Hanna, his wife and a few others were hiking
through Montana’s Glacier National Park when they spotted a mother
bear and two cubs. The grizzly family began to approach the group, but Hanna
expertly guided them to talk loudly and back up.

The mother and one cub passed by finally. But the other youngin’ wasn’t
having any guests. Before they knew it 125 lbs of bear cub was barreling down
upon them.

“At about 30 feet, I unload my pepper spray, and the wind takes it,” he told
The Columbus Dispatch in
his characteristically dramatic style.

Oh, but the bear wasn’t scared.

“Then I unload the second spray,” he said.

Alas, the bear keeps coming.

“Then the third time I unload that pepper spray right in his face.”
Finally!

Hanna claims he’s carried pepper spray for the past 15 years, just for
reasons like this, but has never had to use it. Ironically, too, he had just
filmed a public service announcement encouraging people to protect themselves by
carrying pepper spray rather than guns, even though the latter is now allowed in
national parks.

Even if he were to carry a gun, he thinks it would have been a pretty tough
feat to take the bear down with a firearm.

“There’s no way I could hit that bear with a gun,” Hanna said.

So pepper spray is the way. Good thing he took his own advice

The skinny on the WRIST SAVER

The Wrist Saver is a great way to give yourself that added self protection while doing your favorite activities such as:wrist saver, jogging, pepper spray, self defense, walking, running

–          Jogging
–          Hiking
–          Inline Skating / Rollerblading
–          Walking
–          Walking your dog
–          Crossing college campus

The Wrist Saver pepper spray product was designed to be very compact, light weight and comfortable.  It was originally designed when owners Derek Downing and Chad Smith inline skated professionally and needed some added protection out on the open roads training from crazy motorists and stray dogs that nipped at their skates.  

Back in the early days the Wrist Saver was a simple elastic band with a loop to hold the bottle of pepper spray.  The Wrist Saver today has now evolved into a much more useful piece of personal safety equipment.  Besides the original idea of having a wrist band that holds a small bottle of pepper spray, it now features:
–          ½ oz. Bottle of OC pepper spray.
–          Highly reflective edging, that’s around the entire band.
–          LED Light, so that car oncoming cars and cars pulling out of parking lots can see you.
–          Personal Emergency ID card that can hold all your vital emergency information in case the unthinkable happens.
–          A very comfortable and light weight neoprene wrist band with Velcro hook and loop ends to adjust it to your own wrist size.

The Wrist Saver has become a complete safety product for the active person.  You could say it’s the Swiss Army knife of workout safety.

Wearing the Wrist Saver is a great way for the average person to be able to defend themselves against any attacker.  Personal defense classes are fine but let’s face it, not all of us are Chuck Norris.  The pepper spray bottle can be removed fast and easy, so you can spray the attacker quick and effortlessly.  You can be up to 8-10 feet away, so no need to whip out your fighting skills.  Once the attacker is sprayed, he’ll be stained by the pepper spray dye and be incapacitated for up to 45 minutes.  This will give you plenty of time to get away to safe and secure location.

There’s no need to be afraid of:wrist saver, jogging, pepper spray, self defense, walking, running

–          Park & Trail Muggings
–          Aggressive Dogs
–          Unruly Motorists
–          Bad Neighborhoods

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...
