Survival Gear For the Zombie Apocalypse

Our man sniffles over the season finale of The Walking Dead.and puts together the ultimate BACKPACKER survival pack in anticipation of season 5.
Text by Ted Alvarez


This week, we all watched as The Walking Dead’s fourth season came to a grisly close. Now that the splatter has settled, we’re already missing Rick, Daryl, Glen, and Maggie. But that doesn’t mean you should just sit there and moan like a listless walker with no one to chomp until season five premieres. It’s time to prep for the real zombie apocalypse with the latest and greatest in survival gear. Here are our top picks for what we’d pack when the shit really hits the fan, vetted and proven by BACKPACKER’s ace gear testers.

Ruby Falls

Whether you’re caught in CQC (close-quarters combat) with a rotting housewife or sneaking up on nefarious bandits, you’re gonna need a good knife. Enter the Helle Dokka. A 3.3-inch triple-laminated blade (a hard, high-alloy steel core for a lasting edge with two layers of tough stainless steel to prevent corrosion) is so durable that it’ll stay sharp through months of carving sticks for survival fires, cutting up fish, and puncturing walker skulls. A curly birch handle looks gorgeous once you wash the brains off, and the custom-feeling grip assures unwavering control and accuracy for eyeball stabs.
$154; 4.7 oz. (without pouch); helle.no
