Pepper Gel Vs. Pepper Spray

Pepper sprays and gels are personal defense products made with oleoresin capsicum (OC), which, when used correctly, can help defend users from an attack. OC is a natural substance derived from the resin of chili peppers that causes inflammation to the eyes, skin, and nose. SABRE uses the same maximum strength pepper formula across pepper sprays, pepper gels, and law enforcement pepper spray products and tests every formulation to ensure consistent heat levels, providing maximum protection and confidence in your safety tool.


While both pepper sprays and gels are effective safety tools, you'll want to consider how you want to carry or use your product when choosing between pepper spray and pepper gel.


Knowing which personal protection products are best for you means you can be prepared and able to defend yourself more effectively. No matter what type of product you're interested in, SABRE's trusted personal safety products can give you security and peace of mind.

Pepper Gels

Like pepper spray, pepper gel products can be carried easily and discreetly for protection from attackers. Pepper gel is dispensed as a thicker substance than pepper spray and can travel 20% farther than spray, putting more distance between you and the attacker. Because it is thicker than liquid pepper sprays, pepper gel does not atomize in the air, reducing wind blowback and making it safer to use indoors, on windy paths, or in close proximity to others.

Pepper Sprays

Pepper spray is one of the most commonly used personal defense products on the market today. Among the advantages of pepper spray is that it can be carried easily on a keychain or in a pocket; it can spray in a wide dispersal pattern to deter multiple attackers; and it is relatively inexpensive when compared to other products such as stun guns.
