Tactical Pen

One of the best self defense tools for women is the tactical pen. Disguised as a fancy pen that’ll make all your coworkers jealous, this baby can do a lot more than write pretty letters. Complete with a small knife, hex wrench, and glass breaker, the tactical pen can seriously injure your attacker. Smooth and hidden in plain sight, this is an extremely effective weapon within 20 feet of a threat. Also, this pen can be easily stored on your clothes with a steel clip, so you don’t have to worry about being defenseless if you can’t get to your purse.

Another surprisingly effective self defense item for women is a Tactical Flashlight. In addition to helping you see your way through the dark, the flashlight can blind your attacker and give you time to get away. Preferably, you’ll want to choose a flashlight that has a light intensity of at least 20 lumens or more. Tactica Defense Fashion offers an 800 lumens flashlight with a 300-meter beam, so you can feel confident knowing that you’ll see clearly and blind anyone lurking nearby.

The women's self defense keychain—an incredibly unsuspecting defender—can transform you from vulnerable to prepared in seconds. Simply put your fingers between the holes, and you’re armed with sharp spikes that’ll deliver a powerfully painful punch and ward off close up attacks. This weapon will deliver enough damage to allow you time to get away, and is best used proactively, as you may not have enough time to put your fingers through the holes during an attack. If you’re walking alone to your car or the bus, before you leave simply slip on the keychain and be prepared.


self-defense knife

Small, discreet, but highly dangerous, the knife for women’s self defense can deliver serious damage to your attacker and give you ample time to escape. Many self defense knives are designed to be hidden in plain sight. Disguised as lipstick, pens, combs, and so much more, many self defense knives are keychain adaptable, can be easily clipped onto your pants, or even tucked away into yoga pants. As you can see, you have several options to choose from that’ll fit your style and preferred method of carry.

Pepper spray

Pepper spray is another women’s self-defense tool that is highly effective in dealing immediate damage to your attacker and creating enough distance for you to reach safety and alert the authorities. Many pepper sprays stain your opponent's face blue for up to seven days, so they can be easily identified. Pepper spray is available in many disguised forms, including stylish lipsticks. For this women’s self defense tool, you’ll want to ensure that you invest in a pepper spray that has a high concentration of capsaicin, the active ingredient in pepper spray. The higher the concentration, the more effective the pepper spray will be. Many pepper sprays are able to attach to your keychain, and can be concealed easily, making this self defense tool one of the favorites.

There are many different versions of stun guns available, so make sure that you choose a stun gun that delivers high voltage. Stun guns can range anywhere from 2,000 to 86 million in voltage.

Personal Alarm

The personal alarm can be a good way to layer your protection. When you set off your alarm, you’ll draw attention to yourself and make your attacker nervous. Paired with another effective self-defense item such as a knife or pepper spray, the alarm will likely alert other people that you’re in danger so help can be on the way while you’re defending yourself.
