Here is yet another item that has been seeing a lot of chatter across the internet lately, a less than lethal self-defense device that hides in plain sight.

The device can be deployed in an instance from a natural self-defense pose that leaves hands close to the face for protection and blocking of incoming attacks; while hands are raised in this natural defensive position it allows for a quick surprise deployment of the Gotcha. The Gotcha is secured underneath the cap and made of reinforced durable polymer composite so that it will hold up in a fight. The Gotcha cap comes in many colors to accommodate individual user’s preference and only weighs 112gr.
