Ownership: a month

Pros

I depended on this product for 14 yrs. while delivering mail. I never got a dog bite. Since retirement, I've bought other brands of products to carry while walking. These products spit, sputter, drizzle........and are useless. I now rely on Halt to keep me safe.

Cons

None

Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

the size of spray can and the inclusion of a clip are perfect for carrying in jersey pocket, effectiveness has been established (apparently) by USPS

Cons

no way of determining in advance that the can will work (nozzle could become clogged over time, or pressure might be diminished from previous discharge)

Other Thoughts

This pepper spray can provide much-needed confidence to ride into new territory, especially rural areas where a dog attack is a real possibility. (I began looking for some means of protection after my wife was attacked by a group of five dogs and bitten by one of them.) In a trial with two small aggressive dogs, neither of which was hit by the spray, I discovered that the stream is quite focused. Therefore the rider should wait until the attacking dog is quite close before discharging the spray. I recommend rehearsing a procedure before an attack actually occurs. What I do: (1) come to a full stop, (2) release my feet from pedals and straddle bike, (3) shout at the dog(s), (4) assess dog behavior and wind direction, (5) spray into dog's face as a last resort. I am a dog lover, but I do not want to be bitten. A face full of pepper spray is very painful, but it might save a dog's life if it precludes subsequent ventures onto the road.
