Good idea, poorly exacuted.
on January 3, 2013
I bought a few of these after reading a lot of the hype written about them. I train FOF and self-defense classes with a few other committed guys so we emptied a few of the canisters and tested these to see how they would hold up in some real life scenarios. Short story is that they suck... the main problem being that they are made of plastic that is as frail as glass! The belt clip broke on EVERY one of them and a few, the thing just popped right off the whole clip as soon as you touched a person. Under stress if someone is on top of you, if you get knocked or tackled to the ground... this thing goes flying across the floor. This is not the kind of spray you need if you are attacked, this is the one that you need a lot of space and time to take it out and use it, which if that is the case then just not go the route you are taking or run away. Couple of the sprays the flow trickled out like hobo urine, and two of them the lights didn't work at all even with new batteries.
If they were serious about this thing they would make them out of METAL and make the clasps keep the stray on your belt if you are under a stressful attack.
