I’d like to first point out that I do not work for Lincoln Tactical, I just happen to love all of their gear. The following gear will not only protect you in the zombie apocalypse but will save you.Thinking about the zombie apocalypse, most people think that you’re just going to bust out into the world and start double tapping zombies left and right and eventually emerge the victor. However, it’s very unlikely that the zombie apocalypse will last only a couple weeks. In reality, the zombie apocalypse will last for years before there’s any resolution. Because of this, you’ll not only be shootin’ up zombies, but you’ll be surviving with very few resources while in dangerous and unfamiliar territories.
So with these items below, at least you’ll be somewhat prepared for what you’re about to encounter in the big bad zombie apocalypse.
How is this item NOT awesome? Just look at it! The sheer amount of pockets available is what immediately sold me. You won’t always have the opportunity to set down your backpack to get an item that you desire or need for any given situation. So with this vest, you’ll have your most important items available at your finger tips in any given moment.
Not only is this a multi-tool which comes with a stainless steel blade (good for not just cutting things, but also rubbing against a flint in order to create fire), it also has the proper tools for when you need to fix up your mechanical objects. You may not think mechanics will be necessary during the zombie apocalypse, but if you want to keep driving your car, riding your bike, carrying around your watch and so-on, you’ll have mechanics that will be working day and night to figure out ways to get them working without conventional techniques such as batteries, gas and electricity. And this tool could be of extreme importance.
Gloves will be an integral part to your survival. Our hands can only take so much of a beating and during the zombie apocalypse we’ll be doing nothing BUT working with our hands. With as much gripping of a gun you’ll be doing, touching unfamiliar plants & animals and the general day-to-day things that you’ll be touching and doing, you’ll be kissing your gloves everyday for protecting you against big bad nature. These gloves are also durable AND fire resistant! How can you live without them?
Having the upper hand over your enemy (both zombies and other humans) will be an extreme advantage. You get that upper hand with binoculars. You never go into any situation or new territory without knowing what you’re getting into first, and these compact binoculars will certainly help you get to your destination without (too) much trouble.
We have a soft spot for this gun. We purchased this gun several months back and fell in love with it. It’s light weight, has very little kickback, quieter than some guns, feels great in your hand (for both men and women) and of course, it’s automatic. This gun is also very easy to clean!
And finally, the good ol’ CamelBak. Never leave home without it! CamelBak’s are great because they can hold a lot of water and they sit nicely on your back with a little flexible tube so you can drink out of it at any time. It is so useful and easy to refill. Plus, this CamelBak happens to have a few extra pockets around it, which means more space to hold more rations and that’s always a plus!
There are of course many other items and tools necessary to have with you in order to survive the zombie apocalypse. For now, these are my top 6 choices.
What are YOUR mandatory pieces of gear for the zombie apocalypse?
