"The National Sexual Violence Resource Center reports that one in five women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. And when a 2016 Runner’s World survey asked readers how often they receive unsolicited sexual attention while running, 43% of women responded that they regularly experienced that kind of behavior"

The Run Angel bracelet does two things. First, when activated, it emits an extremely loud 120db high-pitched audible alarm that can both startle an attacker and attract attention if there is a problem. In addition to the alarm, the bracelet has a free companion app and pairs with smartphone devices over Bluetooth. When the button is pushed by the wearer, their chosen 'guardians' will receive an SMS and email showing the date, time and their location. Talk about peace of mind. I can't tell you how much safer I feel when I'm running with this on. Side note, I bought one for my 13 year old who walks home from school. It doesn't hurt for all of us to have one, really. Feel free to use code TRAX15 at checkout if you want to get one for yourself or a family member.
The Defender Ring is a small but incredibly mighty tool. In a nutshell, it is a very sharp, pointed knife weapon hidden in a ring that the can be worn 24/7 if so desired. Because it certainly looks nice enough for that. The blade is hidden beneath a decorative ball on the top of the band which can easily be unscrewed in 2-3 seconds tops. Yes, I tried it. The blade can cut through rubber, plastic and metal and can rip, tear and cut through human skin. So this little gem can inflict pain, cause some legitimate damage and collect DNA due to the sharp nature of the weapon and its ability to pierce and cut skin at low force and slow speed. All that in a tiny and tastefully designed ring. The ring comes in various colors and has a few different designs. I wear mine all the time. I kind of feel like....well, one can never be too safe.
