Boots may be the 2nd most important piece of your survival kit. You’ve got to be able to run, climb, hike and fight in these things, so finding the right fit is gonna be key here. Depending on how much weight you’re going to carry in your pack you may need heavier varieties, but since we’re trying to keep things fast and light, we’re gonna talk about the top three mid-weight boots.Read More >>>
Pants should be versatile, so we’ll look at a convertible style. They should also be quick drying, so we’ll stay away from cotton and check out a synthetic. Durability is also gonna be important, so we’ll want reinforced stitching. When you put all of those desirable traits together you’ll probably end up with the following pants…Read More >>>
Jackets are a crucial part of survival. They have to keep you warm, dry (from the rain and your own perspiration) and not weigh you down. There are many types of jackets and depending on the climate, some may work better for you than others. I’m going to touch on the three which are my favorites, but I’ll ask if you’d like more info on a particular category to just let us know, and I’ll be happy to go further in depth.Read More >>>
This is a topic that many people overlook. Having a good base layer is important for keeping you warm, dry and also healthy. One of the most complicated conditions to deal with in the field is a persistent skin infection which can arise from long underwear that are not easily cleaned or dried.Read More >>>
Dehydration is one of the most efficient killers on the planet and if you’re not careful, it’ll sneak right up on you. Depending on your personal survival strategy, certain water containers may work better for you than others. I’d stay away from anything made of metal just because they tend to be the most likely to make noise.Read More >>>
A bandana is one of those things that is useful for a thousand things. It could be used as a neck gaiter for cold weather, pot holder, collecting wild edibles, washcloth, sweatband, gun wipe cloth, toilet paper, napkin, and soooo much more! We recommend keeping multiple bandanas – at least 2.Read More >>>
Lets get one thing straight. Just because we’re living on the run from a rotten and decaying undead army, doesn’t mean we have to smell like them. Proper hygiene is critical in preventing the spread of disease as well as keeping yourself free debilitating skin infections that may arise from extended bouts of physical exertion without proper cleaning.Read More >>>
When the grid collapses, as grids tend to do during a zombie apocalypse, most of the GPS and digital navigation technology will be rendered useless. This may not be an immediate effect, but it will be a certain eventuality. To prepare ourselves for this, we need to consider our personal survival plans. Where are you planning to go?Read More >>>
Once it becomes clear that you’re going to need to do some navigating in order to survive, a good compass is going to really come in handy. Everyone knows that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, but those sorts of general navigational guidelines will only put you in the vicinity of your intended destination. If you are using a map or atlas for guidance, you’ll need a good compass to chart an accurate course to your destination.Read More >>>
I think that we can all agree that during a zombie outbreak, being able to see at all times is better than not being able to. Given that things are probably going to escalate pretty quickly, it’s safe to say that it’s going to be dark quite a bit. With that in mind, we’re all going to need a light source that is dependable, durable and pocket sized.Read More >>>
One of the best ways to communicate over long distances is with a cellular phone, unfortunately during the collapse of civilization caused by the zombie apocalypse, cellular service has been interrupted indefinitely. So what now? The human voice is typically only discernable for 180m.Read More >>>
Some say that home is anyplace you lay down your head at the end of the day and that seems like a fairly accurate description of the lives we’re going to leading for a while. With that in mind, we’d better get ourselves a nice bed for our home out under the stars, on the open road, or wherever our journey of survival may lead us for 365 days a year, potentially for the rest of our lives.Read More >>>
If you’d like to have a good kit, and be done with it, and get on about your day, I don’t blame and I’m here to help you out. Depending on the size of your group, your kit may need to be more or less robust, so today we’ll look at a big group kit and a solo kit for starters.Read More >>>
We’ve spent a lot of time talking about how to avoid detection, but what if you need to be seen? What if the rescue helicopters are just over the ridge and the sun has gone down so you can’t use your signaling mirror? What happens then? Luckily there are several safe and effective forms of signaling devices available to handle exactly that scenario.Read More >>>
It’s always a good idea to keep your survival equipment clean, organized and ready at a moments notice. One of the best ways to do that is to utilize a stackable, sealable storage tin. The activity of organization is an essential component of the preparation process as it allows you to go through each item and will expose to you anything that you may have overlooked or forgotten.Read More >>>
Carabiners are traditional tools used in rock climbing to suspend climbers via slings from various forms of bolts in rock walls. These devices are incredibly lightweight and incredibly strong. You can use them for anything from hanging a food bag from a tree to keep wildlife out of it, to hanging a makeshift tarp tent, to hanging your water bottle off of your backpack.Read More >>>
Just because the zombies have overrun the world and we’ve been forced to escape into the wild doesn’t mean we head out without a reliable way to eat our reconstituted freeze-dried meals! A little piece of civilization can remind us of where we’ve come from and perhaps give us hope on the darkest of days that some day we can make it back to that point once again.Read More >>>
So you’ve decided you’d rather survive this whole zombie apocalypse thing, huh? Good for you! I daresay I wholeheartedly agree with your notion. One of the most critical mistakes anyone who is planning any sort of survival scenario can make is to neglect to evaluate their cook set.Read More >>>
“Duct tape is like the force: It has a dark side and a light side and it holds the universe together.” – Carl Zwanzig. There are so many uses of duct tape, it’s ridiculous (but it’s not for something like this). Duct tape is great for emergencies: repairs to gears, temporary repairs to vehicles, medical treatments, water-proofing items, seal shelter to help make it waterproof, and so much more.Read More >>>
