There’s no uniform look for personal safety gear, but all the best tools feel a bit James Bond. We found super loud sirens, necklaces that text your friends, and even a pen that can break glass. The best self defense gear is tough, compact, and multifunctional—and these gadgets fit the bill.
We chose the SL Force Alarm as the best personal safety equipment because it suits the most people. It’s safe for kids and adults alike. The alarm comes with multiple units, so you can share with friends, coworkers, children, and family. Once activated, the SL Force releases a blaring 130 dB alarm (imagine standing next to a jet taking off).
Like personal safety devices, personal emergencies come in many forms. So we wanted to find products that had more than one use like flashlights that can find your keys.
