When it comes to gear everyone has their choice of and style for the Zombie Apocalypse. I’ve heard that for the most part people are going for a tactical vest which sounds suitable since for the most part they are cheap to get and they are accessible by everyone. Also these tactical vests for those that don’t wear them for work example military, law enforcement, private security etc. They look so cool with all that webbing and all those pockets and the luxury to accessorize and ladi dadi da. Now the main problem here is maneuvering over obstacles. Any person that has a loaded tactical vest with magazines and supplies will know that getting over fences, wall and other obstacles is a bit cumbersome. Add a back pack and things get a bit complicated for those who are not use to this sort of maneuvering.
Now if you don’t want to use a tactical vest you might go for the approach of using a magazine bandolier. These are lightweight, magazine pouches on a sling basically. The only downfall versus a magazine in a tactical vest is emergency reloading speeds. In a tactical vest you can get a fresh magazine faster than from a bandolier. Now remember we are fighting against zombies so maybe speed wont be much of an issue unless fighting against marauders. Good thing about a bandolier is that it’s easily removable and you don’t stand out that much. Use a tactical sling with your weapon and a backpack with all your trash and you’re good to go.
For pistols there are many ways to carry them but the majority use a hip holster or a tactical leg holster. This is basically user preference and you decide what best suits you.
Now some people like my friend in the picture will dress up balls to the wall with a trench coat and all sorts of gear hidden in 10k compartments. If that’s how you like to roll then so be it…
Nobody will have the perfect gear for the zombie apocalypse some will have to adjust accordingly during the apocalypse because they found they have too much or not enough gear. Use what you feel most comfortable and have been training all your life. Someone taught me “you train how you fight” so basically what you train with now will basically be what you will use for the end of the world.
