A Life-Saving Gadget For You And Your Kids! GUARDian® Backpack

Most of us have had the feeling more than once that we were being followed, or that someone, even a person we could see, was a threat to us. Fortunately, more often than not, we find some way to lower the threat level, maybe by ducking into the nearest store, pulling out a cell phone and calling someone, or finding some strangers to hook up with until . Although these situations occur, once they're over, we give little thought to the next time this feeling may occur.

Fortunately, the folks at Edco Innovations have thought of something -- the GUARDian Backpack. It can protect you, it can protect your kids in potentially dangerous situations. It could save their lives.

The GUARDian is made much like a regular backpack, but it is wired with a personal alarm -- a 130 decibel alarm, the loudest personal alarm allowable by law. Well, we alarm our houses, our cars... why not ourselves?

The alarm is situated in the lower compartment of the GUARDian Backpack, but it is pulled by a cord on the front shoulder strap. The YouTube video below shows how it works.


Here are close-up photos of the pull cord and its location:



The GUARDian Backpack is nylon and comes in several solid colors and in two sizes, one with room for a laptop. A very smart looking GUARDian Backpack comes in black or dark brown leather...

Considering the life-saving value of the GUARDian Backpacks, they are very reasonably priced. Check them out at the GUARDian website.

 I like this idea! I was

 I like this idea! I was mugged quite a few years back and I have to say people getting too close on the streets for a while gave me the creeps. People carry personal alarms, but I think they'd be hard to get too in an emergency, this would be subtle and convenient!
