In a world where the extraordinary has become ordinary, preparing for the unexpected is no longer just a precaution. It’s a necessity. And in the realm of doomsday prepping, the right gear can help protect you and your family from the undead.
As you embark on this journey through survival tips and gear recommendations, don’t forget: the key to thriving in any apocalyptic scenario lies in preparedness, adaptability, and the right equipment.
Building Your Home Survival Kit
When preparing for doomsday – whether that means a natural disaster or the zombie apocalypse – it’s important to have a well-stocked survival kit at home.
This kit should contain everything you need to stay safe and comfortable for several days.
Let’s take a look at what you should include:
- Water: The rule of thumb is to store 1 gallon of water per person per day for at least three days. This will cover drinking and sanitation needs.
- Food: Stock up on non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items. Think canned goods, dry mixes, and energy bars. Remember to pack a manual can opener if you’re including canned food!
- First aid kit: This should include band-aids, antiseptic wipes, tweezers, medical tape, and gauze pads. Don’t forget any prescription medications you or your family might need.
- Tools: A multi-tool with a knife, pliers, and screwdriver can be handy for fighting off zombies or fixing a broken door. Also consider packing duct tape, a flashlight with extra batteries, and matches in a waterproof container.
- Communication devices: A battery-powered or hand-crank radio can help you stay informed. Also, consider a fully charged backup power source for your cell phone.
- Personal items: Depending on your needs, this could include hygiene products, glasses, personal documents (like copies of passports and driver’s licenses), and comfort items like games or books.
Remember, it’s not just about having these items but also knowing how to use them. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the tools and procedures included in your kit.
Don’t forget to check your kit every year to replace expired items.
Create a Survival Kit You Can Carry With You
There will be times when you won’t be able to access your home survival kit. So it’ll be important to have a portable survival kit you can wear every time you leave your home or fortified shelter.
Battle belts and zombies
Every second counts in a survival situation. Whether you’re facing a natural disaster or a horde of zombies, quick and easy access to your tools can be the difference between life and death.
This is where Blue Alpha’s battle belts and duty belts truly shine.
Our belts are designed to give you easy access so you can draw your weapon or reach your multi-tool in a split second. For example, it can hold a compact multi-tool, a small flashlight, a pouch for matches, and even a small first aid kit. Or provide a convenient place to hook your zombie battle baton.
So whether you’re scavenging for supplies or defending your base, Blue Alpha’s duty belts and battle belts can handle it all.
EDC belts in survival scenarios
Having the right tools at hand can make all the difference during doomsday. And your EDC belt can function as a “life kit” that stays with you every day so you’re ready for when you bump into that first zombie at the supermarket.
An effective EDC should include items like a lighter, knife, compass, and other tools that could be crucial for survival. Having these items within easy reach can aid in everything from building a shelter, starting a fire for warmth and cooking, to finding your way if you’re lost.
We designed our EDC belts to bring together practicality, durability, and everyday comfort that you can rely on in high-stakes situations.
Accessorizing for doomsday
The right accessories on your battle belt can significantly enhance your preparedness and resilience.
- Mag pouches so you have extra ammo to take on a group of zombies.
- Dump pouch to store empty magazines and other items when scavenging for supplies.
- Belt keepers to keep your belt in place when struggling with the undead.
- Tourniquet holder so you can treat any zombie bites right away.
- Fanny pack for additional storage when foraging for food.
Practical Tips for Belt Usage
In survival scenarios, how you use and organize your gear can be just as important as the gear itself.
By effectively utilizing your belt, you can enhance your preparedness and response times significantly.
Here are some practical tips on how to make the most of your belt:
Begin by identifying the essential items you need to have on hand. This will typically include a knife, a flashlight, a firearm, and extra magazines.
Position for quick access
Arrange your gear in a manner that allows for quick and easy access. Place the items you’re likely to need most often or urgently in positions where they can be reached with minimal effort.
For example, if you’re right-handed, your most essential gear (like your firearm) should be within easy reach of your dominant hand. Your mag pouches would then be on your non-dominant side to keep your right hand free to handle your most important tools.
Balance your load
Distribute the weight of your gear evenly across your belt to avoid discomfort and ensure mobility. An unbalanced belt can restrict movement, cause unnecessary strain, and, most importantly, keep you from being able to outrun a zombie horde.
Regularly review and adjust
As you use your belt, you’ll gain a better understanding of what works for you.
Regularly review and adjust your setup to suit your evolving needs and preferences so you’re always ready for your next zombie encounter.
Ready for Anything
Being prepared extends beyond just having doomsday supplies. It involves a deep understanding of how to use your gear effectively, particularly in high-pressure situations.
Remember, the real power in preparation lies in adaptability and the mastery of your tools. Regularly revisiting and updating your survival strategy and gear will keep you ready to face whatever challenges may arise – undead or otherwise.
