Zombie Survival Kit
I feel this design merits a little explanation. Late one night, whilst watching some trashy horror films and having one or two drinks, I started thinking about what I do/use in the event of a zombie apocalypse. This should have been an early indication to go to bed, but hey.
I set myself some restrictions. I live in the UK so gun control is very tight here. Also I could only use items and clothing that are available to the general public. So the automatic shotgun strapped with a chainsaw and motion sensor lava grenades can't be used.
I woke up the next day to find I had a very thorough (and very long...) Amazon wish list. Only by the grace of God, the shopping cart was empty.
However, I found I had a very decent, practical and surprisingly affordable zombie survival kit that could be used in a variety of situations and weather conditions. I won't bore you with all of the little details, but I put some of the ideas together for this design :)
So if, in the midst of a post-apocalyptic situation, you see this guy wandering around, chances are, it'll be me. And if playing Day Z has taught me anything, don't come and say 'hello'.
