I crossed the US on my bicycle three years ago, 2017, and a friend offer me a baton like this one to carry with me, and feel a bit protected. As I finished my trip, a had to return it and had been since looking for one for my regular rides - never know, coyotes, drunkards, chasing dogs, obnoxious teenagers.
I'm so glad I found one and was able to purchase it. It works just like the police one I had. I love to carry it now when I walk my dog in the woods and feel like I can at least wack scare any funny creature coming our way.
Definitely a quality baton, for 40 bucks you couldn't ask for more, the rubber grip is great for when you hand gets sweaty, you wouldn't want it to fall out of your hand in a serious situation, this one wont. That being said make sure you know how to actually the thing you get this taken away from you it not going to be good, it's not meant for big swings, it's made to say close to you and flicking on incoming blows and waiting for the opportunity to get in close for a take down, as well you bring this out without warning it completely changes the situation. It went from a regular fight to this guy could kill me fight. Its not a toy.
Operation is easy to deploy. Little hard to collapse. However the weight, though you posted it, was a little heavier than expected. For the purpose I intended I will need to order a smaller/ lighter. Thanks
Purchased this baton for work, seems like a great baton, price was great, seems like good quality material. Fast shipping as well.
