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!!!

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.

Women’s Safety And Protection While On Campus

Posted on January 27th, 2012

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

Pepper Spray For College WomenAwhile ago we had a blog posting on women’s safety on college campuses.   The posting is pretty far back, so we wanted to do a little repost, to bring it to the forefront for everyone to read again.

Protection & Safety Tips For Women’s While In College

Below are some safety tips that are listed on www.collegetips.com  If you have a college daughter or friend, pick them up a Personal Savers product at our store (Shop Personal Savers) .  It’s a small price to pay to keep your loved ones safe.  Pass this on in a tweet or facebook posting.  Pepper Spray saves lives.

Portion of the article:

Take a self defense class

Most colleges offer some type of self defense classes, especially for women. If your school does not offer such classes, get in touch with the student government or campus activities and ask why they do not provide it. These classes are typically free, and sometimes can be taken for college credit. These classes are usually the best way to understand how to defend yourself, and can be empowering to know you can do so if you had to.

College girls should have protection

Some colleges and universities are in “the bad part” of town, and college girls need to look out for more than just college guys. All college girls should have some type of protection on them at all times. Good examples of protection include pepper spray (or mace), or a tazer. Both of these are non-lethal ways to take down a potential attacker and get away. College girls should practice using pepper spray or tazers (stun guns) as instructed on the instructions.

College girls should avoid dangerous situations

Avoiding dangerous situations is the easiest way to stay safe. Always traveling with friends always helps, but also being aware of your surroundings is key. If you feel you are being followed try to get to a safe location as quick as possible. If you are alone don’t stop to talk to a stranger if you don’t feel comfortable. Try to walk and stay in highly lit areas at night, and always stay within view of other people. Avoid shortcuts through alley’s because it could be a prime place to get attacked.

What college girls should do in dangerous situations

If a college girl still ends up in a dangerous situation it is important to know what to do. If you are confronted always have a plan to get out safe. Get on your cell phone with someone you trust and tell them where you are and what is happening, if necessary tell them to call the police. If you can’t get a hold of someone, and you do not feel safe, dial 9 and 1, and keep your finger on the one button – If something happens hit the one and yell out where you are and what is happening. If someone tries to steal your car, throw the keys far away from the car and run the opposite direction, this will help save you from being kidnapped. If someone attacks you, don’t yell help, yell fire! In any situation where someone asks for your wallet or purse, throw it over them and run away as fast as possible. If you are attacked and you have pepper spray or a tazer, use it!

Is Just Not About Pepper Spray

Wrist Saver Pepper Spray - Women's Safety At NightWrist Saver Pepper Spray

 The Wrist Saver pepper spray unit, is not all about carrying pepper spray.  Running last night on the country roads of Indiana, the Wrist Saver saved me from oncoming cars knocking me into the ditch countless times.

With short days in the fall and winter, we almost have no choice but to workout at night.  The Wrist Saver’s super bright LED light, which can been seen from almost a mile away, is a life saver.  Whether it’s oncoming cars or cars pulling out of a parking lot, the drivers really focus on the light as you swing your arm forward.  A very nice complement to the LED light, is the highly reflective edging.   

 So, Running At Night?

Make sure to consider the Wrist Saver.  It’s a great addition to your nightly workout gear by keeping you safe by being seen while you’re running, walking or jogging  at night.

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...
