The list author says: "This is a list of the items required for a Class 3 or 4 zombie outbreak as detailed in the Max Brooks book: The Zombie Survival Guide. It includes two general categories of items, items you need for your home before leaving town for a safer location, and items you need while on the move. Items higher on the list are to be kept on your person at all times. Items lower on the list can be left behind when convenient or when your initial defensive position is abandoned."
"You're going to spend a LOT of time walking. Be comfortable, and maintain 2-3 pairs of hiking socks. One of the biggest edges you have is your ability to walk quickly, don't develop a limp from uncomfortable shoes."
"Best (cost efficient) option available on amazon. Find a 10/22 Ruger rifle (as per youtube's declaration of greatest anti zombie weapon), 300 .22LR rounds, 3-8 magazines, a scope, and a suppressor if you can."
"150 bolts (plus a couple that come with crossbow). Only a small quantity is to be brought along once mobile, and only if you are unable to acquire a 10/22 rifle and suppressor. May require Blade Broad Heads for skull penetration."
"Dried food, requires water and preferably heat. This is 3 months of food for a single person. Each two day packet weighs a little under half a pound. A few weeks or more may not be a bad idea if you can manage the weight."
"Ideally not for use during combat. Pockets are a hazard for grabbing hands. Keep a backup side arm (not available on amazon) within reach. You want 200 rounds of ammo and be mindful of ammo weight (.22 is super light, .45 is very heavy, you don't need stopping power you need a small amount of penetration)."
"Backup melee weapon, not for slashing. Must have enough of a hand guard to keep your hand off the blade when the point meets skull resistance. Must be as narrow as possible and be free of serrations."
"Hands free light source, long lasting power (but still requires batteries). Be cautious with light outdoors and at night. A red filter is available and may be a good addition. 2 pack 3 LED dynamo flashlight is a lightweight, and battery free option to use as a backup light source."
"For room clearing this will likely be the ideal ammo/gear carry method as it can be easily released and left behind. While it may be good to keep several different ammo and magazine types, make sure anything that isn't for a weapon you're currently using is packed away."
"This is only for use when a camp fire cannot be made (save your resources). It's more expensive than most, it's a little heavier than some, but it burns just about ANYTHING which allows for fuel foraging as you travel, and that's invaluable."
"For use within the group (minimal range for checking for other survivors). Comes with ear pieces, use them to reduce the chances of being overheard. Speak quietly. Can be charged with solar charger without needing additional batteries. Midland AVPH8 Acoustic Throat Mic allows for hands free communication."
"You will need something to cook in, or at least to heat water up in, these will work for a 1-3 people. If you will be traveling with a larger group you'll want a a larger pot or two, if you will be fishing or hunting as you go, you'll need more/larger pots/pans. Light My Fire Titanium Spork is a good solution for a lightweight compact eating utensil."
"More robust than a typical travel sized back. For use before the initial defensive position is abandoned, and to be carried on the bike. Contents to be split with less critical items carried in the bicycle and abandoned if needed."
"Size for your backpack, and how much you can carry will be specific to you. This pack is 10 pounds (empty!), and carries 7,850 cubic inches of gear (double the empty weight and full size of many other packs). More gear is more weight and that may not be a good thing. If you're too tired to move you've just become a zombie treat."
"Silent propulsion. More than enough speed to out pace a slow, lumbering gait. Allows for a rear rack (included with bags), and allows for a front rack and bags (not included). The rear rack makes an extra 55 pounds of weight possible."
"This is lightweight, and if wet, the synthetic fill will keep you warm better than down feathers. The Grand Trunk Ultralight Hammock will get you off the ground while sleeping if you find yourself alone."
"This is to supplement your dried foods for situations where water is scarce, or in situations where heating water for the dried foods is not possible. 4 days of MRE is the same weight as 90 days of dried rations."
"Eventually the power in your home will be disrupted. While waiting for the initial frenzy of fleeing populous to die down (so to speak) this will provide a QUIET solution to providing your critical devices with power. If your basement has enough sound insulation you can consider a gas powered unit."
