A. More than a typical flashlight, the Pepper Ball LifeLite Kit combines a bright LED with a C02-powered launcher designed to propel less-lethal Pepper Ball projectiles to an effective range of 150 feet, providing significant standoff distance. Each LifeLite features a five-round capacity and a built-in laser to help the user hit the intended target. MSRP: $299.99; pblifelite.com

B. From its bark-like texture and clipped thorns along its shaft to the highly polished rounded faux wooden head, the Cold Steel Blackthorn Shillelagh is a handsome walking stick that will turn heads. It’s a tad short when it comes to providing much support, but what it lacks in length it makes up for in defensive capabilities. MSRP: $39.99; coldsteel.com

C. Though benign-looking in appearance, POM Industries Pepper Spray delivers 10-percent OC with an ultraviolet dye and dispenses 12 seconds of continuous spray for approximately 20 to 25 uses. A protective cap covers the firing mechanism, which must be lifted to begin the firing sequence. Spray canisters are available in a range of colors and can be had with either a clip or key ring for a variety of carry options. MSRP: $12.95; get-pom.com

D. The simple press of a button rapidly deploys the telescoping 4140 steel striking surface of the ASP Agent Infinity Concealable Baton. A combination of a reduced diameter and a low-profile grip offer maximum concealability either inside a waistband or on a belt, while Crosstec knurling along the handle offers a nonslip surface. Pressing the endcap allows the striking surface to be retracted for stowage. Models are available in 30-, 40- and 50-mm lengths. MSRP: $150.50; asp-usa.com

E. Pairing a flashlight with a stun gun, the Sabre Tactical Stun Gun With LED Flashlight enables users to incapacitate potential threats with 2.517 microcoulombs of electrical current for a less-lethal defensive alternative. On its highest setting, the LED emits a 130-lumen beam with further versatility in the form of low and strobe modes. A 95-decibel alarm provides an alternate form of protection. MSRP: $39.99; sabrered.com
