There are literally dozens of brands of defensive sprays, otherwise known as pepper sprays or OC sprays available in the United States and hundreds of others available in foreign countries. In this article we are going to discuss the top three brands of defensive sprays that we carry so you can distinguish between them and pick one that might be best for you.
The top three brands that we carry are Mace brand, Sabre defensive sprays and Fox brand sprays. Among the three of them they account for close to 60% of all pepper spray sales in the United States. Considering all of the competition, that is really quite a feat.
Nearly everyone has heard of Mace brand. It has been around for close to 35 years now and has a well-established reputation for being an effective nonlethal self-defense tool. Many people confuse the chemical named mace with the brand name "Mace." It is to this day the number one self-defense product for personal safety.
Mace was one of the first manufacturers to introduce pepper gel. They were also the first to bench test all their products before packaging. This ensures a 100% firing rate. So unless the product has expired (most pepper sprays have an expiration date stamped on the bottom of the canister) you can be assured that the product will work when it's supposed to. They also incorporate a few design features that to this day are emulated by their competitors. The finger grip on the front of the canister assures that you will be aiming it in the right direction, and the flip top prevents accidental discharge by covering the firing button.
FOX Brand Sprays are manufactured in the United States and have a reputation of being some of the hottest defensive sprays in the industry. They are used by a wide variety of law enforcement agencies around the country because of their effectiveness. They are a little bit more expensive than most others, but when your life is on the line cost should not be an issue.
Sabre Defensive Sprays are also used by a wide variety of law enforcement agencies and almost exclusively by the N.Y.P.D. They were the first manufacturer to introduce a pepper spray that could be fired from any angle. They were also the first manufacturer to introduce a pepper spray that had a "stop strap" on one of their pepper sprays. This is similar to the disable pin wrist strap on many stun devices. If utilized and worn correctly, they can prevent the pepper spray from being used against you should it be taken away in a confrontation.
