Different Pepper Spray Sizes Explained

01 27 2022

Size plays a significant role in choosing the right pepper spray. It can affect how confident you’ll be carrying the defense spray and potentially using it to protect yourself. Each defense spray size has its advantages, but at the end of the day, it comes down to your comfort level and how you plan to use it. Our goal is to help you to feel confident carrying your product of choice, and size can be a key factor in your confidence level. So, which pepper spray size is right for you?

Compact Pepper Spray

Smaller pepper spray is easy to carry on the go for self-defense. The portable, compact size makes it easier to conceal and less obtrusive when held in your hand. SABRE’s  Mighty Discreet pepper spray is 40% smaller than traditional pepper sprays (more on that below), can fit in a small clutch, and is great for on-the-go safety. These smaller sprays also come in fashionable designs.

Note: Even SABRE’s smaller pepper spray doesn't compromise on power, still offering 5x more protection per canister compared to other brands.

Keychain Pepper Spray

Keychain pepper spray or defense keychains are the traditional sprays that probably come to mind when you think of pepper spray. It’s slightly larger than small sprays and packs the same punch. The larger size can be easier to find in your bag but might make your keys heavier to carry around. SABRE's  Quick-Release Keychain pepper sprays also come with a finger grip that enhances your aim and are available in multiple colors.

SABRE’s Runner Pepper Spray is similar in size to keychain pepper spray but is carried with a hand strap, making it easily accessible on a run.

Multi-Purpose Pepper Spray

Multi-purpose pepper sprays come in many shapes and are larger than your standard keychain pepper spray. These offer multiple functionalities like a flashlight, a seatbelt cutter, a whistle, or Bluetooth connectivity to help you feel safer while on the go, in the car, or at home. In addition, each has its own attachment option to make the pepper spray convenient to bring with you wherever you go.

Large Pepper Spray

Larger pepper spray is best for home defense. Whether home is a dorm room, apartment, or house, you spend a lot of time there, so you shouldn’t leave it unprotected. These pepper sprays have more bursts per canister and a farther range to help keep you safe from a distance. They also come in a pepper gel formula, which won’t blow back on you and is safe for indoor use. Keep these pepper spray options on your bedside table or mount them in an easily accessible spot on the wall, so you and your loved ones are protected at home.
