BASIC PROTECTION

Basic zombie protective gear that you need

 

Zombie Protection

 

When it comes to zombie protection, you must prioritize your threats. The number one threat is being bitten by a zombie or becoming infected through other means. Being infected by not preparing for combat is a lot more likely than a group of zombies taking you down. As we stated in the “Anatomy of a Bite” article, kevlar gloves/forearm protectors and snake bite proof boots will go a long way in preventing infection. You must have this basic equipment to increase your chances of survival

Something you must also consider in a post apocalyptic scenario, other than being turned into a zombie, is the risk of any infection. If you are wounded and you do not properly take care of the wound, this could easily be a death sentence. Without antibiotics or a surgeon to properly flush deep wounds, the risk is high.

 

Important Zombie Protection Gear

 

When coming in contact with the dead, you must be prepared for the diseases that they carry. Here is a list of three items you should integrate into your gear.

 

Latex Gloves

 

Latex gloves worn under your gear is really some cheap insurance against dying. They are extremely cheap, so there is no reason not to have these. Consider this for a second. If you are in melee combat, you are going to injure your hands. If you do not cover these wounds properly (with latex gloves), you are sure to get infected by the zombies’ blood.

 

Medical Face Mask

 

You would not want to have skin, blood, and bone from a body, whether a zombie or not enter your mouth. This should be common sense. You must properly protect yourself from having this happen by wearing a simple medical mask. This is extremely important when using a melee weapon or at close range with a firearm.

 

Eye Protection

 

The same goes for your eyes. While in combat, you do not want to have bodily fluid enter your eyes for a lot of different reasons. Again, in a melee or close combat situation this is highly probably. Eye protection is a simple way of making sure this doesn’t happen to you. The eye protection should also protect your peripherals and ideally be ballistic certified.

These three Zombie Protection items can save your life without spending top dollar for the best equipment you can buy. A lot of what goes into survival has to do with the basics. Just because you have spent top dollar on your gear and weapons doesn’t mean anything if you can’t survive a single blood splatter. Remember these items when considering zombie protection.

    you see the thing is with the face mask 1. its going to make noise if you accidently knock it against something when around a corner and not just that imagine wearing it 24/7 its going to get annoying and heavy on your head your better off wearing a doctors mouth cover and a pair of safety glasses trust me the face mask would suck you wanna limit the amount of weight you have on you

      Daniel,

      Thanks for the comment. However, a medical face mask IS what the article recommends. I do agree with you that a heavy face mask would be impractical for constant use.

      Medical supply stores would carry them, if at absolute loss for another option, though i don’t condone thievery, would be to check the cabinets and drawers the next time one visits the doctor.

    I have played many zombie games and i have watched many zombie movies bt someday when an invasion occurs i think it will never be like the games or the movies it will be massive , thus living that experience will be very pleasing i very much like 2 exist in that kind of a breakout so make some kind of a paintball center including zombies in lebanon cuz rly that will be FUN!!!!!!

    Wouldn’t these things be irrelevant considering zombies don’t have flowing blood so if you cut one open the blood would be dry, thus not splattering on you. I do agree that these thing could be useful against infection, not by zombies, but I don’t think it is directly related to zombies.
