Here Is My Video Review On The Defender Pen:
The Atomic Bear (TAB) has released a new tactical pen called the Defender. I own a few of the TAB tactical pens and they have yet to disappoint me. So when I had the chance to test out their latest addition, before it was even released for sale, I certainly looked forward to the opportunity.
Tactical pens are used for for self defense, multi-tool purposes, glass breakers and of course… as a writing utensil. Tactical pens are generally built from aircraft-grade aluminum and are designed to take a beating. Hence… them being a viable self defense tool. With some quality practice, a tactical pen can be a compliment to anyone’s everyday carry (EDC). It will be able to assist you in situations where standard EDC tools are not allowed.
-Perfect Practice Makes Perfect-
So PRACTICE Before You Choose To Carry!
This new Defender pen has a few features that make it stand out. Here are a few of those key features:
- Made from aircraft-grade aluminum
- Parker-style ink cartridges (easy to find and write well)
- Glass breaker end (business end as I call it)
- Stylus tip that will work on your mobile device (keep those gloves on)
- Retention clip for pocket carry
- Cap screws in rather than just clip in (better retention)
- Cap can be affixed to pen when writing
This pen is actually designed to perform like a great “pen” when you are on the job. One issue that many users complained about was having to take off their work gloves when needing to use their smart devices. Well, TAB listened and addressed the issue with a stylus tip that works better than I expected. This pen is also shorter than many pens available on the market. This is a key benefit for those that want to carry in either their shirt or pants pocket.
The design of this pen is a bit counter-intuitive when it comes to a self defense application. The striking or the “business” end on this pen is reversed from many other tactical pens. What this means to you is that you have to practice, reversing, the pen when you want to use it to strike an object. Once again, with a bit of practice, this isn’t a big deal. But it is certainly something to be aware of.
If you are in the market for a well built pen, that writes really well and offers you the benefit of an accurate stylus tip, take a look at this latest addition from TAB. I’m happy with it and I’m sure that you will be too.
