Palm Defender: designer pepper spray


Ordinary self-defense just doesn't cut it these days. I mean, why be safe if you can't look good while doing it? Well, unlike unglamorous fanny packs, over-the-shoulder bags, or even dorky outfits for kickboxing, the sleek-lined and bejeweled Palm Defender by Pepperface.com looks hot. Designed with a wraparound safety to prevent accidental discharge and a straightforward release for when you really need it, the Palm Defender can be gripped firmly with one hand, releasing a cone-shaped spray on target. Using special "Heat" inserts, the Palm Defender uses Oleoresin Capsicum (OC), a non-lethal yet very irritating high-grade derivative of hot peppers that causes severe pain when in contact with the skin. When OC gets in the eyes, it causes temporary impaiment of vision, and intense burning and swelling; get your attaacker on the nose or in the throat and lungs and it will cause coughing, choking, and nausea. With effects lasting up to 40 - 45 minutes, you can be sure that you'll have a fair amount of time to escape if you need to - and still look good!

(Thanks Chantal!)
