A Zombie apocalypse scenario isn’t like any other end of world scenario. It’s terrifying and you’ll probably agree- we really hope it never comes. But with The Walking Dead returning with Season 6 and Fear The Walking Dead ending recently, we can’t stop wonder how to survive this dreadful event if it ever hits.
In order to survive flesh-eating living dead, you’ll need all the skills and tips. And not to forget maybe the most important thing- having good equipment. You’ll need all the essentials to survive, from medical supplies to all sort of weapons. And what better to have than already prepared kits for such an event.
Take a look at these best 5 Zombie Survival Kits.
1 – Gerber Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit
Gerber made this weapons heavy kit because let’s face it, you can’t just run away from zombies. With this kit, you can face them with seven powerful weapons. You’ll get three knives, three machetes and an axe. They’re rolled up in a black case that has a handle, so you can carry it easily. Of course, you wouldn’t need guns, because who would like to make noise and attract more zombies? With seven silent weapons, you are good to go.
In this kit, you’ll get three machetes: the Gator, the Gator Pro, and the Parang, all made of high-carbon stainless steel. Gator comes with a fine edge on one side and serrated edge on the other. It can be used in the wilderness, to cut branches or zombie heads. We also saw it on The Walking Dead episodes. Gator Pro is more aggressive, it can be used as an axe, machete, brush thinner, or knife. It has a handle that prevents it from slipping out of your hand and also includes a sharpening stone. And last but not least, the Parang. It was also seen on The Walking Dead episodes. This machete has an angled blade, made to reassemble traditional jungle machetes. It is recommended by Bear Grylls, an expert in survival tactics.
In this kit, you get three knives: Epic, DMF Folder, and LMF II Infantry Knife. They can be used in a variety of situations. LMF II can be attached to a pole and used as a spear. DMF folder is a pocket knife for everyday use, and Epic comes with a bottle opener.
For the end, not to forget the Camp Axe II, an all-purpose hand axe, great for close combat. With this kit, you can be safe and run to get other supplies for surviving, but make sure to watch out from deadly bites.
