How the Defender X Pen Works
The Defender X Tactical Pen has several features that make it one of the best survival tools money can buy. From the information on the official website, here’s how it works:
First, the pen of aircraft-grade aluminum and features a “glass-breaking” tip, so if you’re in a vehicle or building, you can make it quick escape in a dangerous situation. In our experience, the glass breaking tip actually worked quite well, although it took a few tries to shatter thicker glass.
Second, the Defender X has a flashlight on the end that is surprisingly bright. We’ve already reviewed several tactical flashlights, but surprisingly, the Defender X was almost as bright. It wasn’t quite as blinding as say the XT808 flashlight, but it certainly was bright enough to ward off an attacker.
Finally, the Defender X can actually be used as a regular pen. It’s usable in all conditions, so if you’re lost in the woods, you can take notes as to your position or mark landmarks, etc.
Our Experience With the Defender X
Like the ABP Tactical Pen, we got a chance to try out this pen for ourselves. We took some time and tested out the pen in various situations:
- Glass breaking: Surprisingly, the glass breaker did well to shatter glass after a few strikes. We had to hit the pen perfectly to crack and shatter the glass, but after a few strikes and some practice, we got the hang of it pretty quickly.
- Flashlight: The flashlight was bright, although not quite as bright as we thought it was going to be. However, we’d still say it was bright enough to ward off most attackers and it would be bright enough to spot if you were lost in the woods from a fairly far distance.
- Regular pen: As a regular pen, the Defender X was well, perfect. After all, it’s got ink and writes well. There’s not really much more to say about it other than it did its’ job here.
Defender X Tactical Pen Pricing
Admittedly, the Defender X comes with a significantly higher price than your average pen. This isn’t just a 6-pack of Bic pens you can buy for $4. According to the official website, the Defender X is priced based on how many your order. Here are the prices:
- 1 Pen: $56
- 2 Pens: $117
- 3 Pens: $145
- 4 Pens: $169
- 10 Pens: $350
Keep in mind, these prices reflect a discount of 75% off. So normally, these pens would be priced at much higher prices. Given this deal, and our positive experience with this tactical pen, we definitely recommend this tactical pen to you if you’re looking for a simple, yet effective survival tool.
