We don’t live in New York but people in the midwest tend to view New York as a place with constant violence and assaults occurring on the regular due to shows like Law and Order SVU. Since we don’t like the idea of carrying a gun around everywhere with us (and the rest of America shouldn’t like that idea either) we think that there are other weapons that can be used for our self defense. Knives are just a little too much and Mase makes us feel like a frightened woman that should be carrying a whistle around with them. So what is an item that can defend us but not make us look like a complete pansy? Umbrellas.
Real Self Defense is a website that offers different types of products that can help the everyday person defend themselves. One of their products is the Self Defense Umbrella that turns a rainy day item into a weapon that can disarm and beat down any potential pickpocket or crackhead you encounter. Their website shows a tough looking old grey haired man that could probably destroy anybody working in the Gadgets 4 Guys office with his pinky standing on top of this umbrella. The catch is the umbrella is supporting his entire weight just to show how durable and strong this self defense umbrella is. If that wasn’t enough proof, they also have an animated gif that shows this same hardcore old man taking the Self Defense Umbrella and smashing a friggin’ watermelon in half to basically show us what he could do to a humans head. They further elaborate on the advantage that the self defense umbrella has over a small, measly, knife wielding assailant due the reach you gain. The best part of the umbrella outside of being able to use it as a self defense weapon is it actually keeps you dry when raining. What we mean is that you actually get a functional umbrella with the capability of beating somebody’s face in (only if they provoke you though).
Self defense gadgets are something we enjoy to check out but understand that it actually does serve a decent amount of protection with it. So don’t be the next Law and Order SVU victim and get yourself one of these bad boy self defense umbrellas.
