There are many different kinds of self defense products for women.

They range from physical weapons like stun guns, pepper spray, and personal alarms, to other products such as self defense training and courses.

We wanted to create the best list of options for you here, to let you choose which one you’re comfortable using.

1. Handguns

The number 1 self defense product is a firearm.

This is also the most lethal, and there are several reasons why some women may not be looking to begin carrying a concealed weapon.

However, it would not be accurate to create a list of the top self defense products and not list a gun. For self defense, there is no match. We will have specific buying guides and recommendations for women in the future.

2. Pepper Spray

Pepper spray is probably the second best option for creating the most distance, and damage.

When used properly, pepper spray can be very effective in stopping an attacker.

3. Stun Guns and Tazers

Stun guns and Tazers are sometimes overrated in terms of how much damage they can do.

However, they do make a very loud cracking sound which can sometimes be enough of a distraction to get to a safe place.
