I was excited recently to have purchased these as gifts for my Mom, my sisters, and for myself. I had a technical issue with my order, so I emailed TigerLady, and was met with the most wonderful, prompt, and personal customer service I've encountered. My concerns were heard and addressed quickly, and they shipped me another immediately.
Not only does Tigerlady make me feel a little safer while I'm out by myself, but the personable encounter I had with the company genuinely made me feel like my safety was cared for, personally. So thank you, TigerLady, it's refreshing to see your support for women, and it's nice to know you've got our backs!
My husband is a police officer and teaches self defense classes and recommends this product. He bought one for me to carry while running. It's easy to hold and I think would be faster to use and more of a natural reaction than spraying my pepper spray (which I used to carry). I'm not trained to use a gun and I wouldn't feel comfortable running with one, so this seems like a good fit for me. Hopefully I never have to use it, but I will always run with it and have it in my purse for situations where I'd like to carry it.
I do a lot of early morning running when it's still quite dark. Runner friends and I have been chased/honked at/shouted at. I wanted something to defend myself with should I ever be attacked, but I'm not comfortable carrying a gun or taser because they're heavy and can be used against you if your assailant overpowers you. Same with pepper spray. The TigerLady claws are the perfect compromise for me. They are lightweight and depend only my built-in reflexes. I haven't been attacked, thank God, but anytime I've been startled my hands automatically ball into fists and out come my claws. I believe in this product so much I bought my four sisters each a set for Christmas to carry when on their college campus or when going downtown at night so they've always got a way to fight. Love love love my claws!
