Carrying around pepper spray is never a bad idea. One tiny spray bottle can ensure that you have that added sense of security. But, the idea of clipping it to your iPhone may be taking it a step too far. The SmartGuard Pepper Spray iPhone case does just that, and while it's a fantastic idea in theory, its execution is a little awkward.
The pepper spray stays locked in its own little compartment and you'd have to try really hard to accidentally spray yourself without actually taking out the tube. Unfortunately, the case itself just isn't very sturdy, which is worrisome when there's lethal pepper spray involved. When I dropped the case with the iPhone inside to test its durability, the case came apart.
I can definitely envision the scenario in which this would come in handy. Ladies, the SmartGuard is ideal if you're going out for the night with your friends and plan on carrying only a small purse. Same goes for the fellas with only two pockets. Though it's an awkward looking case, and it isn't very easy to talk on the phone with it attached, but the idea behind is a good one.
The bottom line. It's not a case for everyday use, but if you're going out for the night you might want to consider carrying that extra bit of protection on you. Just don't drop your iPhone.
