Don't act like you haven't thought about it! This topic is here to give you a place to draw yourself in what you would most want to have on/with you during a (zombie) survival adventure. Now, there are some catches, to make it more realistic/difficult:

1. YOU MUST ALREADY OWN EVERYTHING YOU PUT IN YOUR KIT. Yep. No AK-47's, unless you happen to actually own one. And if you actually have a flamethrower in the garage but it's property of your little sister, too bad. IF YOU AREN'T THE SPECIFIC OWNER, YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU.
2. YOU HAVE LIMITED STORAGE SPACE. In theory, almost everything you take with you should fit in a medium-sized backpack. Therefore I have set a couple strict rules concerning what you can take with you in total. Here's the list (these are maximums, so feel free to take less with you, but not more of them):
1 COAT/JACKET
1 PAIR OF SHOES
1 SMALL WEAPON (should more or less fit in a pocket or small pouch)
1 LARGE WEAPON
2 SWEATERS
2 PAIRS OF PANTS (or skirts, I guess)
3 SHIRTS (or dresses, whatever)
3 CLOTHING ACCESSORIES (like hats, gloves, belts, etc)
4 PAIRS OF SOCKS
4 PAIRS OF UNDERPANTS
5 EXTRA SURVIVAL AIDS (note: stuff that belongs together like cellphone&charger count as one item)
3. ABOUT THE 5 EXTRA AIDS: These don't specifically have to be yours, just stuff you have in your house, since I don't think first-aid for instance is specifically property of certain family members.

Now draw! I know it sounds like a lot of work and it kind of is, but it's also lots of fun to rummage through your clothes and see what is optimal for fighting zombies. It's also easy to think you have a weapon lying around, but in actuality you'll probably have to look through your possessions a while before you find something useful.

Here's my kit!
(by the way, it's not an obligation to draw everything you take with you like I did. If you just want to draw yourself in your outfit, go ahead!)

Well, I didn't expect batman to join in this thread.. But if you really want, I guess you could swap your big weapon for two small ones. But that doesn't seem like a very smart choice to me, really.

Anyway, here's another quick drawing of me in zombie-gear. The reason I packed that much clothes was because I kind of had a medium-term survival length in mind. But that reinforced motorcycle jacket for instance is pretty awesome, since zombies would have a pretty hard time biting through that I think. The shoes suck though, but I don't have anything sturdier at the moment. I can imagine having to ducttape them at some point.

Serious question now: Do we have to pack a realistic kit relative to the area we live or can we invent a kit of the favorite items / clothes we'd like to wear for such an event, because living in Canada, I'd have to prepare clothing for both winter and summer and that would take up more room than my backpack could carry.

Well, I kind of tried to pack clothes for both cold and warm weather, but Belgium doesn't have super-hot summers or super-cold winters, although I'd still be pretty damn cold during winter even with the clothes I picked out. Let's say you primarily choose the clothes you think would be the best choice for a zombie-infestation, but try to keep (not-too-extreme) changes in temperature and weather in mind.

Well asuming I can avoid hordes of zombies, I guess an individual zombie cant hurt me when I wear my motorcycle outfit and just ducttape all the parts that need to be ducttaped. put on my helmet and they can bite as much as they want.


God invented evolution 'cause he couldn't do it all by himself! Awesome Tees!

Also, would sais count as a short weapon? Or a medium weapon? And if it's not a long weapon, does a pair count for one slot?

Omitted packed clothes because I doubt anybody cares about my clothes besides that I wear them.

Yes there is a shirt beneath the jacket.
Yes, these all follow first rule.

Hmm. Well, the idea for a small weapon is that it should more or less fit into a pouch or pocket of some sort. You have different sizes of sai I believe, but since it's kinda lightweight I guess one could count as one small weapon. If you want both, maybe they should count as one large weapon, and you can still choose another smaller one on the side. Or something? Rules are hard. Just choose what you think is right.

Oh, and now I read over it again, specifying underpants and socks is kinda silly, maybe. I also intentionally left out food supplies, but if you want to take it further, look through your pantry and decide which pieces of food (or food containers) you have lying around that you would want to take with you. As a restriction, maybe try to keep the weight of your food under 2kgs (apparently that's about 4,4lbs). This is totally a mini amount, so again, choose wisely.
So: my food! woo.

If zombies burst into my house right now i'd probably panic, grab the closest blunt object, and haul ass out of here, so that's the situation I went with.

My kit:

YOU CAN'T MAKE ME PICK ONLY TWO KNIVES, I LIKE ALL MY KNIVES!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Primary weapon: Big'ol sturdy black machete, good for hacking and slashing, pretty light and can be stored neatly in its sheath.

Secondary: Ulaks. Not as easy to story considering their strange shape and size but very lightweight and have the best skull-piercing potential out of all of my knives. ( Seriously, you don't know it until you hold one of these but the stabbing power they have is incredible )

Thick black leather jacket: not as protective as a reinforced motorcycle jacket but the toughest thing I've got that won't encumber me or be noisy when I move. It's not my warmest jacket either but it'll have to do. At least it will keep me and all the stuff in my tactical vest dry.

Tactical vest: worn under the leather jacket, not only does it add more protection, it also has several pockets ( 10 small pockets and 2 large backpack-ish pockets ) that greatly increase my ability to carry stuff while remaining comfortable and mobile.

T-shirt rolled around my neck: look, I don't really have any kind of real neck protection and it's just wrong to leave it exposed. Plus if the T-shirt I'm actually wearing gets too dirty, I can switch them around.

Sweater: beneath the tactical vest: yet another layer to prevent bites and to protect from the cold.

Long-sleeve synthetic shirt: extremely small and light, keeps me warm and takes literally no space at all over being naked.

Gloves: protect my hands, don't do much for keeping them warm though, with them not having any fingers. I can climb and grab things without fearing to injure my hands. Keep a bigger, warmer pair of gloves with me because I know my skinny little hands can't handle any time of cold for a long time.

Goggles: Protect my eyes from blood splatter, wind, rain, snow, anything that might impair my vision, really.

Black cargo pants: bought at a military surplus store, I've come to believe these pants are indestructible, comfortable and warm.

Longjohns: beneath the cargo pants, for that extra warmth.

Badass winter boots: Normally I prefer my running shoes because they're very light and allow me to be agile but in the long term, I do believe my winter boots will do better. They're much too thick to bite through, they'll keep my feet perfectly warm and dry in any condition and they still have enough grip to allow me to remain agile.

BELT: Where else will I put all of my knives but my trusty belt? Technically I've got two of them but one of them is part of the tactical vest.

Small backpack contents:
Assortment of very light spare clothes. Mostly socks, light synthetic fabric t-shirts and underwear. I've got my spare pair of black cargo pants in there. Also a tuque, to keep my head warm.
- Closest thing I've got to a medical kit is bandages and bandaids, so I take those.
- Roll of duct tape
- Zippo and Zippo fuel
- Battery charger
- My favorite drawing tools ( pencils and pens and stuff )

Tactical vest contents:
- Flashlight x2 and matches
- Throwing knives x5
- water bottle
- cellphone and charger
- Set of walkie-talkies
- Sunglasses
- Drawing pad
- chemical flares x8
- pack of small candles
- Blanket
- Two extra small pockets left for future items.

Cargo pants lower pocket content:
right pocket: note pad
Right pocket: map
I don't like having too many things in my pant pockets, it limits movement too much.

Finally, food:
Quacker oatmeal packs ( maple flavored ) x10, 43g each, 430g total.
170g can of tuna
nutri-grain fruit bars x8, 300g total
Box of maple leaf cookies, 400g
710ml bottle of coka-cola

I totally spent five minutes considering if I brought the cans of maple syrup with me or not.

Also, judging by Pat's character, the only maximum we can have is what can fit on our person/weight specifications. If that's the target, then technically I could load up on multitudes of small weaponry that can fit in pockets and what not.
