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.

Beyond pleased

Not only was the quality of the product top notch, it was shipped and I received it super quick. Communication with customer service was professional and helpful as well. Will definitely do business with again.

Great products and service!

I ordered this after seeing it posted in a women's runnin group on Facebook. I love that the company is woman owned! The device arrived quickly, but it didn't work! After some back and forth emails troubleshooting, a new stun device was sent to me that arrived quickly and worked perfectly! Thank you so very much!


I feel so much safer during my early morning runs in the dark! It is easy to carry and switch between hands. The adjustable strap helps keep it comfortable. It even fits in the side pocket of my running shorts for when I do not need to carry it.

Still alert, but a bit more protected

I like how the taser is small enough to carry on my early morning runs and also has the knife as well. I just hope I don't poke myself with the knife while running.
I had a larger taser, but it was bulky to carry on my runs.

Love it!

Times are wild and I’m always carrying multiple weapons with me. As a daily runner but someone who HATES holding anything while running, but also wanting to be able to access a weapon really quickly if need be, the knife ring is perfect for me. I’m able to wear it on one hand while having spray strapped to my opposite hand. The filler pieces that are included make the ring adjustable so it works for everyone!

I run early in the morning, often times when it is still dark outside. I use the Go Guarded ring every time I run and feel so much safer. I highly recommend this product to any female who ever ever alone while working out, walking in a parking lot, etc.!

Irish running twins

I bought these for my wife and her running partner. It’s a sad day when I know my wife needs this to go running. It’s comfortable and they don’t even realize it’s there most of the time. Great product idea.

Timely delivery

Great products and amazing customer service!

I purchased several products for my daughter as I wanted her to have some defensive tools as she navigates the running scene in NYC. The wrong item was accidently shipped to us but after a quick call and speaking directly to the founder of the company we were shipped the correct item immediately. She kept in contact with us to make sure we received the correct item and were satisfied with the products; amazing personal and attentive service! My daughter loves the ring and how simple the design and function is, it has become a regular accessory on her daily runs. She also loves the portability of the hand-held with alarm; she keeps this in her backpack and wears it during her subway commute. I definitely feel more confident knowing that my loved one carries some tools that are readily available should she need to protect herself. Thanks Go Guarded, you are awesome!

Feel so much safer

My 5 AM walks with my dog got really scary when a stray dog attacked us. Luckily we were able to get away. The scariest part was that I was screaming my head off and no one came to help. This purchase has given me back my peace of mind.

Feeling safe!

This product is a great comfort to have when running by myself.

I finally feel safe!

Perfect size for my hand so easy to carry on my runs, the strap makes stay in place so I don’t actually have to grip it, until I see a creep coming my way. Thankful for the peace of mind this has brought me on my runs. Chose the one with the pepper spray because of the coyotes my dog and I cross paths with.

Love it

I love my pepper spray/knife. I bring it on my runs and it makes me feel so much safer. I just bought one for my sister in law too because I love it so much! Very convenient and provides so much security

Melissa Riviello
Great product for protection

I bought one for each of my daughters for when they jog, hike or walk alone on campus. They all feel safer with it and like how you can customize the size.


This ring gives me an extra sense of safety when I’m running on a trail alone or anywhere for that matter. Would definitely recommend and buy again.

Peace of Mind

I've ran with a pocket knife in the past, and it's never convenient or easy access. Since experiencing a handful of concerning interactions during my runs, I wanted something that would be fast acting in thr moment if someone got close enough to grab me. This ring is comfortable and easy to wear while running. While it's not a reason to make poor safety choices and be reckless, I do feel a peace of mind with it. The ring is one tool in my safety tool box. It serves as a last measure of defense if a physical interaction occurred. Good investment. Small and portable. Would be nice for it to come with a small, hard, carrying case, since it is extremely sharp. Good investment.

Thank you for being the only ones to make a basic pepper spray knife

I love the product I bought it for my gf to go on walks to make myself feel more comfortable 😅 I just wish there was a cap to blade because carrying it anywhere else other than your hand would poke at you or something you own like I can’t really safely put an open blade in my pocket other than that thank you I’m glad you made this exist it’s just a cap would be nice 👍

Feeling safer

I have alot of anxiety with being out by myself. Having the go gaurded ring helps me feel so much better. I also bought one for my daughter!!

Don’t leave home without it

I’m an early morning runner and I always carry my GoGuarded device. Having it visibly in my hand is a good deterrent. I recommend your products to everyone who wants to be able to protect themselves without risking self injury.

Safety shield

While I get that this does not guarantee my safety, my level of anxiety with trail running at all hours has significantly declined since being able to wear the Go Guarded Ring. I hate the feeling of things on me during my runs, but this has quickly become an exception. It’s super comfortable and I like that I can adjust the size to fit me as needed. Well worth the money.

Stun device needs its own carrying case

I like both products, however, It would be nice to have a separate carrying case for the stun device. The stun device does not fit well in the one attached to the handheld and feels like it will fall out. It would be nice to have a secure carrying case for the stun device so you don't have to carry both products all the time.

6 stars

Love this device! It’s comfortable in my hand. I have a new level of comfort and feel safer when running with the hand-held device. Thanks for making a great product!
