5 Items That Could Save Your Life During The Zombie Apocalypse


You will need a lot of things to stay alive during the zombie apocalypse, starting out with all of the things you needed prior to the onset of walkers to stay alive. A human can survive for up to three days without water. We’re not saying they are going to be a rosy three days when your running from crazy undead hordes who want to eat your brains and can’t stop for a water break, but you can last that long. After that, you’re petrified zombie bait.

Elite Forces Survival Waterproof Stormproof Matches 2-Pack

2. Stormproof Matches
You can’t do much without fire. In the winter you’ll need fire to stay warm because all of conveniences of heated blankets and cozy nights by your remote operated fireplace are over. Start a fire or die trying. That is actually such a profound statement that world renowned author Jack London wrote a short story about it entitled, “To Build A Fire.” It pretty much sums up why you need matches that work in wind, rain and zombie blood. No fire, no life. Even the cavemen had that figured out. We suggest the Elite Forces Stormproof matches because they are cheap, and they work.

Snugpak Ionosphere One Man Tent

3. Snugpak Ionosphere One-Man Tent

This kind of goes along with fire except it isn’t entirely necessary to have a tent. You could build your own out of dental floss and baby diapers, but that probably wouldn’t be as effective as this one man Ionosphere tent from Snugpak. Some folks call them bivy tents, we call it a one man-tent. (That’s a Slingblade reference, get it?) This shelter from Snugpak is excellent for many reasons, but we’ll stick with the most important. It’s small, easy to transport and it will keep the rain and wind off of you. It’s also low-profile and O.D. green so it won’t stand out from a distance. Throw some leaves and sticks over it and you won’t even be able to find it yourself, more importantly the zombies, or those who want to steal your supplies, can’t see it from a distance.

4. M48 Apocalypse Walking Axe

I know, I said you don’t want people to see you and now I’m saying you need this toxic green axe that is practically reflective? In case you didn’t know, zombies are colorblind. Okay, I made that up, but for some reason knife companies have deemed this bright green color “zombie green.” So of course I had to put it in this blog post. Never mind the color and think about how effective this sucker is going to be as a walking stick/self defense weapon. And, if you’ve ever tried to split wet wood to start a fire with your itty, bitty pocket knife and a prayer. You will appreciate this guy when log splitting time rolls around. You might have been trying to pry that log open with your pocket knife and a zombie sneaks up and eats you. There, the axe saved your life.

5. A Bicycle

This is a pretty general item, but you will get tired of walking. You can travel more than twice the distance in a day riding a bike slowly as you can walking. If you actually put a little effort in it you could ride 30 to 40 miles per day. It’s not like you have to go to work or anything, so just get use to pedaling. Ideally, you’d want to find a bicycle with some luggage racks or saddle bags, but you could always add your own. Make sure you get a mountain bike or something with some gears because a little girl’s bike with white tires and a basket isn’t going to be very efficient in the effort-to-distance-traveled ratio. If we were to suggest one, we’d say something like this old one of Dorothy’s with a chain saw on the front. It might be a little overkill though, and gasoline could be hard to come by.
