Best Zombie Survival Gear

Slider zombie Survival gear

When it comes to zombie survival there are a couple of basic principles you need to keep in mind that makes in fundamentally very different from regular survival gear.

Normal survival gear is all about surviving the elements: cold, water, heat and all the resulting fun that comes with that like freezing to death, starving to death or dying slowly of thirst. While those are definitely concerns when it comes to surviving a zombie apocalypse – they aren’t the biggest concerns.

Number 1 objective of zombie survival – not getting eaten by zombies.

Actually that is basically the only objective of zombie apocolpayse survival. That’s the only thing you need to do. Water, food and sleep don’t really matter if you’re missing your arm.

So before we get into the best zombie or survival gear in general we are gonna discuss a couple of simple basic rules to keep your ass safe.


The ABCS of Zombie Survival Kits

We’ve all seen zombie movies where some group of survivors have the brilliant idea to hide out in a public area, like a shopping mall. This is probably the stupidest idea you could have. Although the shopping mall has the latest fashions, a food court and if you’re lucky a hunting equipment superstore it also has about 45 entrances and hundreds of meters of glass windows.

Same goes for hiding out in a library, supermarket or apartment complex. Regardless of how many cans of beans and tuna might be inside your hiding spot, there is a very high chance that zombies will get in. You’ll either fuckup or you’ll be so scared from the constant zombie noises outside that you won’t be able to sleep.

Just like the old business mantra – “location, location, location”. It’s all about where you are and hiding out where no-one lives is the best idea. Actually it’s the only sane one.

Don’t know what I’m talking about. Check out this video and learn more about zombie survival gear.

 

While hiding out in some of these places might not be the most convenient or comfortable it will be the safest.

What is the Best Zombie Survival Gear?

So for the last 10 years I’ve been living and breathing survival gear/weapons. You can check out more about my story here. When it comes to zombie survival gear, the majority (75%) of the equipment on the market is utter garbage. Here is a simple rule that I use – if the military uses it, it’s good for zombie survival.

All the equipment I’ll describe below is military grade, made of the same material and based on the same designs. I’ve used all of this year personally or sold some of it at my shop (by shop I mean my garage).

Not only will zombie apocalypse gear help you survive a zombie invasion it also functions as great overall camping gear.
