1. Boasting a distinctive look that is as eye-catching as it is practical, the Cold Steel Dragon Walking Stick features scales that span the full length of the high-grade polypropylene body, a material that assures impressive strength, durability and resistance to the elements. A snarling visage with fearsome fangs adorn a generous grip that offers support and a number of striking options, making it suitable as both a balance aid and a self-defense ally. MSRP: $73.99 coldsteel.com 


2. Packing the same knock-down punch trusted by law enforcement, the TASER Pulse enables you to incapacitate an attacker over a 30-second cycle, or switch to contact-stun mode for added insurance in close quarters. A built-in LED aids in threat identification, while its laser enhances accuracy at distances up to 15 feet. The kit  includes two live cartridges, a non-rechargeable lithium battery, a protective soft cover and a conductive target for practice. MSRP: $399.99 taser.com


3. Unlike traditional chemical agents that deploy as an incapacitating mist, Ruger Pepper Gel with Belt Clip contains a gel formula designed to stick to an aggressor’s face, reducing the likelihood of airborne particles affecting bystanders or self-contamination via blowback. It’s capable of 10 bursts at up to 18 feet away, while the built-in belt clip keeps it close at hand. MSRP: $17.99 sabrered.com


4. Add versatility to your EDC gear with the Monadnock Persuader Miniature Key Chain Baton. Constructed of hard plastic acetate, it features a grooved design for enhanced grip retention. Dual rings on the end make it perfect for attaching your car keys to this handy striking tool. At just 6 inches long, it won’t take up much room in your pocket. MSRP: $8.50 safariland.com


5. A modern version of a classic tried-and-true self-defense tool, Foster Impact Devices’ Coin Sap features high-quality leather construction that is machine-sewn with clean lines and exquisite attention to detail. Beneath its industrial-grade zipper is a hidden coin compartment to conveniently add welcome weight via your pocket change, making it a truly multi-purpose melee weapon. MSRP: $40 fosterimpactdevices.com
