Pepper Spray

Haven't been maced in awhile, and was wondering if anyone was familiar with the varieties of sprays currently at market. I read somewhere that up to 99% of Americans now have product awareness - maybe for the spring picnic we can have a demonstration, followed by a blind sniffing.

Also looking for thoughts on organic vs. industrial; fresh-chopped vs. sun-dried; loca-pore vs. rectal.

I read somewhere that it was more economical to purchase a small can of wasp spray, to use as a deterrent. As much as I think about tasers, those cute pink pepperspray guns, & actual firearms, I have only armed myself with a leftover aluminum baseball bat-& if I get hit tonight, I still have other stuff I haven't revealed...

Don, have you checked the reviews on Amazon.com for the pepper spray product preferred by the UC Davis police? As of this writing, there are fully 320 reviews, up from 6 earlier in the week. Must be very popular.

After searching the interwebs without success for self defense products suitable for my college-going daughter, I suddenly remembered this site is an amazing resource. 

I initially thought about a discrete pepper spray device, but I also saw a sonic alarm. 

Appreciative for all advice other than lethal options, please. :-)

Thanks.

My cousin has a discreet, but if you look at it you know what it is, pepper spray that attaches by clip to the outside of her purse.  If your daughter is a fashionable person she might not like the look of it, you know what it is, but inside a bag, it might be harder to get to.  I liked the Cuff thing that came out, the ones already made appear to work, but they appear to no longer be in business, something like that would likely be ideal.  I was going to get one of those for my Mom.  Here are some alternatives to that:
