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 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.

Great protection

My daughter is a runner, and I wanted her to have some protection. This is comfortable and could do some damage with an attacker. We can’t live in fear, but we can make ourselves less of a victim.

Perfect

This is a game changer

Perfect for running and everyday

I love this for running and for day to day use. I feel very safe with it and I like that it attaches to my hand and can’t be easily dropped or taken. Luckily I haven’t had to use it but the security is worth the purchase.

Great product

Perfect for my daughter’s who is a runner. Easy to use and fast shipping.

Small yet mighty

The ring fits perfectly, is comfortable when I run and walk, even with my jogging stroller. It's compact and easy to travel with. Helps me feel a little safer when I am out on my own and that makes it so worth it!

Great deal

Perfect size, great product!

I love that I can easy carry this during a run or tuck it in my running belt. The rubber covering and shape make it easy to grip, even when my hands are sweaty! Perfect for my early morning solo runs.

Almost perfect

I'm happy with my ring for the most part. I wish it had a hard storage case so I could put it away safely between uses. I'm also really scared I'm going to cut myself or my clothes by accident when I have it on. Not sure what can be done about that though, other than to be very careful. Lastly, and this doesn't impact my review of the actual ring... My friend and I ordered around the same time and she got some cute stickers (Warning ... Runner will fight back & Let is run in peace) with her order. I did not receive anything other than the ring in a plastic bag.

I’m once again enjoying outdoor runs☀️

Thanks to go guarded and their amazing self defense products for women, I am enjoying outdoor runs again.

Go guarded gives me peace of mind so I can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature as I train for my next race.

Running is my happy place and go guarded has made it enjoyable once again.

I hope you get to experience their products.

I feel protected

This ring is so easy to wear. I know nothing is 100% safe against crime, but I feel more comfortable going on trail and road runs alone when I’m wearing it. I also carry pepper spray and an alarm.

Peace of Mind

Super light and easy to wear. Makes me feel better to have on me!

Love my ring!

I feel soooo much better wearing this ring when I run alone in the mornings. I have always carried a knife but I have to unzip my pocket to get it out. I always felt like it would take too long if I needed to act fast. This ring gives me so much more comfort knowing I can act quickly if I ever needed to. It’s also very comfortable and never bothers me. Thank you Go Guarded!

I feel so safe!

I usually run in very public areas so I don’t have to worry too much but having the go guarded pepper spray and knife allows me to not worry AT ALL. I feel safe. I feel powerful. I pray I never have to use it but the ease I feel while wearing it helps my runs go so much smoother. I get to have fun while running!! It’s the best feeling!

Great

Super lightweight! Barely even feel it but feel much safer with it!

Get it!!

This is a great self defense product. It’s lightweight and I love that I don’t have to carry it. I feel so much better on my solo runs wearing this!

GO GUARDED RING

Feeling safer

I bought the gift box for both myself and my daughter to use. She is heading off to college and I wanted something for her to have that would be a tool she can use when she is on campus. I am a runner and typically am running alone, so this is a way I can increase my feelings of safety and take control of my environment while still getting my runs in. Thank you for creating products that allow us to do the things we enjoy and increase our level of self protection and safety.

Awesome tool to give me some peace of mind

I don’t live in a threatening area but I’m not foolish to think anything can’t happen anywhere. I feel better knowing I have some sort of protection in case something were to happen. Wonderful products you all have made. Thank you for making me feel safer on my runs.

A must have for runners (or anyone)

I’ve always been cautious when going for a run, but I really wanted something that made me feel extra safe. This ring is sharp! Sharper than I expected, which I was happy about. It also is fairly comfortable. Highly recommend this product, you can never be too safe.

Ehh

It is slender and the top is not easily geared for the thumb over position typical of a hammer strike. Apparently meant to be gripped by the body of the unit and not the top. Not your better product.

Well thought out device

Best points - immediately available (no hassle to deploy) and simple to use effectively, as any hammer fist or hammer thrust provide effective deterrence. Gifted one to a petite woman of 75 who is still active. She loved it.

Better Velcro

The velcro on the Go Guarded is not very secure and allows for too much movement on the hand. Velcro like that found on the Sabre handheld pepper spray would be much better on this.

A must for everyone runner!

The go-guarded ring is an absolute must for any walker or runner! It is small, compact, and I don’t even know I’m wearing it. As a walker and runner who spends a lot of time on trails and sidewalks by myself, this is the reassurance I need that I am staying as safe as I possibly can. Thank you!
