We just can’t get enough of these pants. They are amazing! These are the pants Batman would buy if he didn’t have his own custom made…We’ve gone on several 2.5 mile jogs with these pants now (Training with the Zombies, Run! App). Here’s what we like the most.
Pockets, pockets, and more pockets backed with zippers, hooks and velcro where it needs it
Rugged, lightweight, and breathable. Extra padding where you need it and very durable feeling
Wide 1.75 inch belt loops
Gusseted crotch for increased range movement
Quick dry material
Elastic waist band for that perfect fit
Rubber waist liner to keep your shirt tucked in while your fitting zombies
The wide belt loops allow for a heavy duty belt to support carrying a weapon holster or your handy flashlight, multi-tool or hunting knive. We went with the Spec-Ops Brand Rigger’s belt that comes with a load bearing D-Ring anchor tie-in for belaying and whatnot. This belt is very sturdy feeling…and could probably be used as a weapon itself if need be!
We’ve written about the importance of having clean drinking water, but what happens when you start to deplete your sources? If you aren’t able to boil your water or if you don’t have the time your going to have to look for alternative methods.
The SteriPEN Sidewinder Hand-Powered Water Filter/Purifier uses UV light to sterilize 1 liter of water for drinking after just 90 seconds of cranking. While its great that you don’t have to worry about batteries with this device, we found it to be a bit louder than we expected (not good for being stealthy) and quite the workout. Your going to want some of that water once you’ve finished cranking!
One advantage we found is that the bottle connector thread matches the same threading of a standard Nalgene bottle so you can always use your extra bottles to store up water that you’ve purified.
So you’ve got the house boarded up, you’ve stocked up on water, you are set on food, and now all you need is some entertainment to keep you from going crazy. So you pull out your smartphone for a few games of Angry Birds and low and behold your phone is just about to run out of juice. Just at that moment the power turns off and your left alone with only your thoughts and the monotonous groans of the hungry, dead, flesh-eating ghouls outside.
Luckily, you have prepared for the situation. You’ve equipped your bike with a small electric generator that charges a USB device from your pedal power! Just a little time on the bike to stay in shape and charge your phone and you are back up and running again playing your favorite smartphone Apps.
If you have an iPhone 4 or better you’ll want the SpinPOWER I4 iPhone 4 Bicycle USB Charger Kit.
If you are using an Android phone or another smartphone you’ll want to get the SpinPOWER S1 Universal Smartphone Bicycle USB Charger Kit.
Because you won’t want to just take your bike out for a casual cruise during the zombie apocalypse, its best to have some sort of indoor setup. That’s where the Magnet Steel Bicycle Indoor Exercise Trainer Stand comes in. It takes about 5 minutes to setup and you have converted your bike (an excellent escape vehicle by the way should you need to go on the run) into a stationary exercise bike capable of charging your smartphone.
Now when it comes to the initial outbreak, if we have learned anything from the movies, we won’t be able to depend on the power and lights to last very long, and if the power goes so will indoor plumbing.
Over at ZombieStrategies.com we are big fans of the wait out the initial frenzy strategy. In our opinion, it doesn’t make sense to be trying to run out into an unfamiliar environment and try to get out of dodge or start gathering supplies at the first sign that things are getting crazy. For all you know zombies may starve to death fairly quickly, or start decomposing enough that they aren’t a threat after just a few days.
In that case its better to just hang out in your home with doors and windows locked and play a nice game of Scrabble or Monopoly until the crazies die off. But if you are going to do that, your going to need a good supply of food and water and this is where the WaterBob makes its appearance. At the first sign of trouble, just unbox your WaterBob and put it in the bath tub. Then connect the fill tube to your faucet and in 20 minutes you’ll have 100 gallons of fresh drinking water that should last you about 4 weeks in the airtight bladder.
