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


BACKPACK
When society breaks down, your pack is the only home you can rely on to keep your stuff safe. The Patagonia Black Hole might be your best bet: The practically bulletproof 1,200-denier polyester fabric with TPU-film laminate and DWR finish thwarts bad weather and worse teeth. Whether you’re hiding out in the wilderness or spelunking around an abandoned town, this rugged top-loader works well as a travel bag, a crag pack, or a dayhiker. A lack of accessories and outside cords keeps grasping undead hands from getting a grip, but left and right cinches hold a shotgun and a bow.
$149; 2 lbs. 3 oz.; 35 liters; 1 size; patagonia.com
