Go Guarded saved me
This is a short version of my story. It has been a journey that I continue to travel.

When I first bought the ring – my husband was more worried that I would fall and stab myself. He never thought I could hurt someone Else. But that was before the morning last winter. I was running and heard breaths and footsteps behind me. I turned just as my attacker pushed me to the ground with the intent to rape me. He was on top of me. I stabbed him in the face with my ring and thankfully he stopped and ran away. The police were able to identify him because he dropped his cell phone at the scene of the crime and also because he had an obvious stab wound on his cheek. I never leave my house without my go guarded and when I am home alone – I often have it on me. Thank you go guarded. My attacker will serve an 8 year sentence and also is facing charges in another county for a similar crime.

Sense of security

I am a trail runner and spend many hours a week running alone in the woods. My husband has always been concerned for my safety, and I’ve always sort of brushed him off. I got the Go guarded ring a few weeks ago and have been faithfully wearing it on every run. I don’t even notice it’s there physically, but it provides an immense sense of security, knowing that I have it if I need it.

It helps me feel safe!!!!

I am a home health aid. I often have cases I need to go to at night, or leave a case late at night. Even in neighborhoods that feel safe during the day, nighttime I'm always afraid walking to my car alone. I park safe as I can, under a light and such. Still you never know. Now I have the Go Gaurded Ring I put it on as I leave my clients house immediately. It helps me feel more protected than just my keys in-between my fingers. I bought one for my daughter also because she is a runner. Thank you for these!

gift for myself

I run daily. This was a great investment. It is easily held in your hand and I feel a little safer when running alone.

Definitely Recommend!

Product is sturdy and well crafted. Very light and does not get in the way of working out.

Hand held go guarded without pepper spray

I feel more secure, when having this with me. It fits well and is very comfortable.

Go guarded ring

This is a great, easy to use, easy to carry small ring weapon. Wish it came with a carrying case...

Go Guarded Personal Alarm

I purchased this as a gift for my 81-year-old mom and she loved it. Just a little more security when she’s out walking her little dog in the neighborhood. Thank you for your products, they’re great!

When I wear this ring while I'm running, it gives me peace of mind that I can defend myself. Small and discreet, it's a must for ANYONE who runs.

Don’t even notice it anymore

I’ve only been running with it about a week and by day 2 I didn’t even notice anymore. Running the lonely rural roads isn’t quite as scary anymore. Loved it so much I ordered and gifted one to my sister.

Great customer service

I accidentally ordered the wrong size and they were so accommodating with sending me the correct size. The communication was great.

Peggy Feng
Peace of mind!

Feel safer with this at my ready disposal. Hope I’d never have to use it, but in the meantime, makes me feel more secure on solo jogs.

Not well made

I wanted to love this, I even gave it 5 stats on my last review, but I can't edit it. I wore mine on an easy 1 hour hike and the pepper spray fell out somewhere along the way. My sister in law wore hers on just a walk around her neighborhood and her pepper spray fell out as well, and rolled into the drainage ditch. So now both of us are missing the pepper spray part, which was a big reason why I bought them. I don't see an option on here to just buy replacement pepper spray, so I have to buy all new ones, which is pretty disappointing.

Awesome company to work with!

The internet was having some issues and I accidentally ordered two go guarded rings, I explained the situation and wanted to return the second ring, they told me to keep the ring and share it with a friend. They refunded me with no hassle, greatly appreciated!!

Sharp blade, great spray, convenient way to wear,

Bought one for myself, my sister in law, and 2 of my friends. We all love them, definitely feel safer on our hikes and other trips. I highly recommend these!

Perfect for walking & running along

This self defense ring is great for walking, running or any outdoor activity. It fits well and comes with inserts to resize to your need/preference. I love that it's small but would provide an extra layer of protection if needed.


I lost my last one somewhere and needed a replacement asap to feel more comfortable running. It was just what I needed and shipped so quick. Thank you!

works well easy to carry

Power Grip

After practicing with the hammer stroke, I feel safer.

Just what I needed

I walk in a rural area every morning. I was looking for something for protection from both bad guys and animals. This fits in my hand perfectly and makes me feel much safer!

So happy with the product and service!

I love my self defense ring!!! I feel a little safer throughout the day knowing I have something on me to protect myself. I don’t care too much to carry a gun on me 24/7. As of now the ring will do. I wanted to mention the customer service I received, they get an A+ all around. The shipping was super fast, actually being able to a real person is awesome, and they actually care about the service they provide. I most definitely will come back to purchase more items and I recommend Go Guarded 1000%

The safety item I hope I’ll never need

A friend of mine who is an avid runner was attacked in public in broad daylight in a busy area. After her story and I was starting my own training I got a Go Guarded ring. It’s my security blanket
