SURVIVOR'S STORY

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.

GO GUARDED RING
Laura Key
Seems okay!

Luckily, I haven't needed to use this "ring" yet, but I think it could be helpful. It fits fine and is comfortable enough that I can forget I'm wearing it. For actual self-defense, it requires an unusual striking angle, which I've practiced, just in case! I doubt it would affect an attacker if used against jeans or a jacket; so whenever I put it on, I mentally prepare myself to use it fiercely on someone's exposed face or neck. During evening walks, I continue to carry pepper spray and a beefy metal flashlight (holding it like a baton, the way cops do).

Happy addition to running gear

Easy to carry and provides a sense of security. This is a happy addition to my running gear!

Perfect

This works really well and is safe and comfortable to run with!

Ready to fight back

I feel like someone from Go Guarded was listening in on every fight my husband and I have had about why I don't want to carry any self-defense devices while running. This ring is perfect. It's unobtrusive, I don't need to think about how to use it, and it can't be taken away and used against me. I love it so much I'm almost hoping for an excuse to use it. Come at me, bad guys! I'm ready to take your eyes out!

Love it!

Love it. Such a light & easy protection tool for my late evening runs!

Better than expected

So I bought this from seeing an influencer run with it and also she had an experience where it was good to have it. I absolutely love it and it is way more comfortable than I thought it was going to be. So if you are on the fence, I do highly recommend and will say you won’t regret it!

Great!

Love that someone is making personal protection like this. The only thing I would change is having the option to buy only the stun gun without the knife end. That said, I am very happy with my purchase!

Very pleased.

Very pleased with purchase, fits well. Looks very discreet. Hope I never have to use it.

Great quality, love it!

I had high expectations for the hand-held knife and stunner based on other reviews and I was not disappointed! Great quality, the stunner seems strong, and the grip works great. I definitely feel safer on solo walks and bike rides.

Love It (Gives the Husband Peace of Mine, Too)

I ordered and received the stun gun with dagger combo and I absolutely love it! It’s very easy to use. Arrived quick & my husband has a lot more peace of mine now when I am out running.

My sister in law loved it !

My sister in law runs a lot of trails and she is a true crime fanatic. Things have been more dangerous in our county and I want her to have SOMETHING. What better equipment that is meant for running and stabby? Brings her confidence up! As well as fashionable, would love to see more colors !

Makes Me Feel Safer

I like my Go Guard ring. Hopefully I’ll never have to use it, but it makes me feel safer. It’s made of VERY hard plastic and know it will hold up if I have to use it.

Go Guarded Ring is Peace of Mind

I purchased the Go Guarded ring because I wanted something I didn't have to hold in my hand while running. Especially on longer runs where I need to hold gels and maybe water. It gives me peace of mind when running by myself. The silicone over the blade is really flexible so it'll definitely do what it needs to if you have to use it, but it also protects me from hurting myself by accident. I can still reach into pockets and such with it on. Definitely recommend.

GO GUARDED RING
Elizabeth Corker
Great product, great gift

I bought three- one for me because I’ve used it for years then lost it in a move, two as gifts for my active friends. It’s small, portable and comfortable to wear on activities short and long. It’s a nice added sense of safety on morning walks with my dog. Comes with plenty of sizers to help get it just right. Just keep in mind for me at least that your fingers can swell when doing outdoor cardio, especially in the heat!

Hand held with pepper spray

I’m very pleased with this product it’s lightweight and easy to hold!

100% recommend

I hope I never have to use it, but I feel safer when I run with it. I got the perfect fit using one of the adjusters and hardly notice I'm wearing it all all.

Sense of security that’s easy to carry.

I run alone or pushing a stroller most days. While my surroundings are nature filled, getting help or visibility isn’t easily done. Carrying my Go Guarded Handheld with Pepperspray gives me the defense needed if I should ever encounter a predator. I also have the ring for traveling and love that too! Keep up the great work helping us feel empowered!

Exactly what I was looking for.

Exactly the kind of low profile non lethal type of protection I was looking for. Very comfortable to run with.

Go Guarded Ring When Other Options Prohibited

I can’t speak to the legality of my actions but I recently used my Go Guarded ring in a foreign country where nearly all other self defense options were prohibited. It was undetectable but still available to me should I feel the need for a personal security device. I liked it so much I decided to buy an extra half dozen for Mother’s Day gifts for the women I care about.
