Personal Self-Defense Products for On-Campus Residents
Moving into a college residence may be the first taste of freedom, but it could also come with the possibility of unwanted threats. Despite the security that colleges and universities provide, burglaries represent the largest percentage of campus crime while assault continues to be a concern on campuses.
While out and about on campus, you need a readily accessible and discreet way to protect yourself in case of an attack. Always follow this motto when about to leave your room – keys, phone, purse, personal safety device – check!
For safety in your on-campus residence, SABRE standalone alarms help provide peace of mind without permanently affecting your dorm or apartment.
Personal Self-Defense Products for Commuters
As you travel to and from campus, whether it be by bus, train, car, or on foot, it's important to maintain awareness of potentially threatening situations. Areas such as public transportation, parking garages, and city streets could pose a risk to your safety.
Enhancing your safety means arming yourself with a personal safety device, whether that be with pepper spray, pepper gel, or a personal alarm. Each product fits conveniently into a bag or attaches to your keys for immediate accessibility providing you an opportunity to help protect yourself, escape an attacker, and find help.
Personal Self-Defense Products for Active Students
Outdoor exercise is a great way to reduce stress, promote physical fitness, and clear your mind. No matter if you run, walk, or exercise at outdoor fitness gyms, you should always be prepared with proper safety equipment designed to help protect you against danger. The best safety equipment for outdoor exercise should not only be effective, but lightweight and easy to carry so that your activity isn’t affected.
All SABRE Running Series safety products are compact and convenient, can be easily carried, accessed, and used, work in all-weather conditions, and provide increased visibility outdoors.
Self-Defense Pepper Sprays for College Students
Among the best personal safety devices that you can carry, SABRE pepper sprays deliver a concentrated burst of oleoresin capsaicin, the chemical found in peppers that gives them their heat. They are incredibly effective at incapacitating a threat for up to several minutes, helping provide time to run away from harm.
With an industry exclusive High Performance Liquid Chromatography Laboratory (HPLC), only SABRE guarantees its maximum strength formulation in every canister to help give peace of mind, certainty, reliability, and safety when you need it most.
In the event of an attack, hold your pepper spray in your dominant hand and spray side-to-side across the attacker’s eyes from ear to ear for best results. For accuracy, hold the pepper spray trigger with your thumb.
SABRE pepper sprays are available with keyrings, belt clips, athletic armbands, and holsters for convenience and easy access at a moment's notice.
Self-Defense Pepper Gels for College Students
SABRE pepper gel works as fast and as strong as pepper spray, but features a 20% longer range, reduces wind blowback, and is less likely to foul the air, making it safer to use indoors or in close quarters.
SABRE’s High Performance Liquid Chromatography Laboratory (HPLC) also guarantees the maximum strength formulation for pepper gels to help give peace of mind, certainty, reliability, and safety when you need it most.
In the event of an attack, hold your pepper gel in your dominant hand and spray side-to-side across the attacker’s eyes from ear to ear for best results. For accuracy, hold the pepper gel trigger with your thumb.

Personal Alarms for College Students
SABRE personal alarms offer exceptional convenience for on-the-go safety. The ear-piercing siren can be heard up to the distance of three and a half football fields and draws the attention of others when you are faced with a threat.
Whether it’s the key ring that you always have when you’re on the go or exercising outdoors, our personal alarms help you indicate your need for help right when you need it most.
