Essential Gear: Equipment You'll Need For The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse!
You Know The Zombie Apocalypse Is Coming - Make Sure You're Ready!
We all know it's coming.
The Zombie Apocalypse will occur eventually, and if popular media really is a predictor of coming trends, then it's going to happen soon!
We've all seen the movies, but since when can you learn real life lessons from a movie???
Instead of relying on that bogus information, I've compiled a list of the absolute Essential Items every household should have on hand Before The Dead Rise!
Slice through the undead hordes with ease !
Ka-Bar Black Kukri Machete
You've seen all the movies, so you think a gun is the best weapon for fighting real zombies? Wrong! A gun needs bullets, and in a world filled with the walking dead there's no time to reload a weapon. The Ka-Bar Black Kukri Machete never needs a reload, just a strong arm and proximity to the neck of a ghoul!
At just over 1 pound in weight and 17 inches in length, even a weakling can behead a zombie with a single swipe! Includes sturdy sheath!
You're gonna turn anyway, at least be comfortable before you bleed out !
Temporary Traumatic Wound Treatment
It's bound to happen at some point - someone in your group is going to be bitten. If you don't have the guts to kill them immediately, then at least try to make them comfortable by stemming the blood flow with a Celox First Aid Temporary Traumatic Wound Treatment - 2g 10-Pack! Just open the puch, pour the CELOX onto the wound and press down with gauze - the wound clots within minutes!
Great for spurting arterial bleeds!
If the flesh eaters don't get you, contaminated water will! Be safe and filter that water.
Pocket Water Filter
No matter how secure you think your location is, eventually you're probably gonna have to go on the run and find a new safe haven from the undead. Nothing is more important while you're running than fresh clean water, and after The End begins, essential services won't last for long. That's why you need the Katadyn Pocket Water Microfilter! This compact beauty filters a quart of water a minute and has a lifetime capacity of 13,000 gallons!
And since it's silver-impregnated ceramic element is effective against bacteria, you don't risk becoming infected with zombie-ism from your drinking water (that's assuming it's spread by bacteria, and not a virus - but if it's viral we're all doomed anyway!)
The world could be saved and you'd never know it without a wind-up radio!
Hand Crank Flashlight with AM/FM radio
Whether you're hunkered down at your safe-house or on the run, you're going to need a flashlight! And before you head into that ruined city, you need to check the radio to see if it's safe! That's why you need the Kaito KA404 Emergency Hand Crank Dynamo 5-LED Flashlight with AM/FM radio! It's powered by a hand crank, so no batteries to fail at that crucial moment!
The radio also comes with an extend-able antenna for access in remote locales!
The real zombies won't starve to death, but you could! Eat up!
Emergency Food Bars
After the electricity fails and the food spoils, you're gonna need something to eat - and unlike the walking dead who stalk you, food won't be easy to come by. So stock up on Datrex 2400 Emergency Food Bar - Case of 30! Each packet will sustain an adult for 3 days, and they're approved by the U.S. Coast Guard!
Tastes like coconut!
If the Army can't teach you how to survive, you might as well just get yourself bit and join the undead masses!
Prepare yourself before it's too late! Get yourself the Official Military Survival Manual FM-21-76 and start reading it today! You'll learn how to travel, find water and food, and take how to take care of yourself if you get injured!
Official 1970 Military Issued Manual!
Don't let those bodies pile up - dig some graves with this handy shovel!
Folding Survival Shovel
At some point in your quest to survive the living dead, someone's gonna need burying, so keep the Texsport Folding Survival w/Saw Shovel close at hand! This useful little guy folds to just over 12 inches, and the handle unscrews to assemble a 5 1/2 inch saw blade.
We all know it's best to bury those bodies with the head detached, so that saw's going to come in handy!
Even comes with a coloring book!
Childrens Survival Kit
Is the whole family trapped in the house when it's time to make a run for safety from the attacking hordes of walking corpses? Let the kids feel like a part of the adventure with the Childrens Survival Kit! This kit is designed for kids 11 and under - I guess because kids 12 and older are able to take care of themselves!
The kit includes fun stuff like food bars, a squeeze flashlight and even glow-sticks!
Handheld GPS Navigator
When you're on the run, there's nothing worse than getting lost! If you know there's safety to be had at that farmhouse across the woods, find your way with the Garmin GPS 60CSx Handheld GPS Navigator before the zombies find you! This incredibly accurate GPS device can track your path even under heavy tree cover and deep inside canyons!
Warning: This great device has built in games games, but don't let them distract you from escaping those dead bastards who are out to get you!
Better than a gun - the ammo is reusable!
Buy lots of ammo - it's cheap!
Crossbow & Bolts
When you need to make a hole in the head of a cannibalistic animated
corpse from a distance, use the Horton® 175 - lb. Crossbow!
Unlike the bullets from a gun, the 5-Pk. Aluminum Bolts for 150-lb. Crossbow can be reused! Just wipe off the gore and load them back into your quiver. With this crossbow and the included scope, even an amateur can place a shot right between the eyes with ease!
According to one Amazon reviewer, "Bolt passed through critters like hot knife through butter."
Can't beat that!
Don't let the undead sneak up on you in the night - that's when they're hungriest!
Night Vision Bi-ocular
We all know that the undead will not hesitate to sneak up on you in the dark, especially if you aren't paying attention! Don't let them get the slip on you - keep watch all night long with the ATN Night Shadow-HPT 2nd Generation, 5x Night Vision Bi-ocular! This 5x bi-ocular is weather and fog resistant and its all digital controls will help you keep an eye out for approaching flesh eaters.
The built in proximity detector even turns it on automatically when you raise it to viewing position!
Naturally, this isn't everything you'll need to survive the coming
zombie apocalypse, but I'm sure you'll agree, it's a good start!
Good luck and keep vigilant!
The life you save could be your own!
