Z.E.R.O. (Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations) Kit by OpticsPlanet Product Info
Imagine: You half-hear a low, guttural sound from outside as you lay sleeping. You figure it's just your stomach after too much delicious Mexican food... but a sudden thud on the outside wall of the house shakes you from a peaceful slumber. Deep within the primal centers of your brain, you realize the dead have risen to claim our once-peaceful realm. What do you do? What do you need? The dead have risen, and they've returned as something different. Those you were once closest to now hunger for your flesh, and possibly the Mexican food you had for dinner.
There is no room for error when dealing with the undead. Our Z.E.R.O. (Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations) Kit takes into account all the different aspects of surviving the looming zombie apocalypse. When the undead hordes rise from their shallow graves to wreak havoc on all decent civilization, you'll need to both fight back (Extermination), and find a cure (Research).
Always be prepared. In the new zombie world you can be king of the hill, or the tastiest treat in town.
Life Post Zombie Apocalypse is Harsh...Survive it!
First, as in any disaster, whether it is a hurricane, blizzard, alien invasion or giant lizard attack, you need basic survival gear. Fighting back will be necessary as well, but you have to survive the elements and everyday hazards before you can mount an offensive.
Stanley First Aid treats bite wounds, scratches & more.
You're sure to get a few cuts and bruises along the way so you need good first aid. The Stanley Personal Protection Large First Aid Kit will help you stop bleeding and take care of other wounds in no time. Zombies don't have the best eyesight, but their sense of smell is on par with a bloodhound's. There's no scent as irresistibly alluring as blood, so make sure you clean and dress wounds when they happen. In addition to keeping zombie hordes from tracking you, treating wounds will prevent infection.
Punching zombies is the most fun you can have, but only with BlackHawk SOLAG Gloves.
Preventing scrapes is the best way to keep blood from attracting zombies, so covering exposed skin with protective gear is essential. Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G. Kevlar Gloves keep hands safe from normal cuts, and the reinforced stitching stops zombie teeth from ripping through flesh and turning a healthy human into the enemy. Best of all, the molded knuckle protectors let you put a hard jab straight down the gullet of a walking dead monster in the event you're unarmed.
Don't Lose Your Head, Don't Miss Your Shot, and Don't Get Lost.
Watch It! The 5.11 Tactical Watch helps you take the perfect shot and get moving fast.
Knowing your surroundings and where you're going is essential to survival in any setting. Make sure you're wearing the 5.11 Tactical Field Ops Watch, which not only tells time, but also has a digital compass so you know your bearings. The integrated SureShot calculator gives you shooting solutions out to 1000ft so that you don't need to carry one when you're taking headshots out from 300 meters to save a loved one's life. Zombies send panic through the hearts of even the most hardened men, so let the 5.11 Tactical Watch take the guesswork out of your long distance shots.
Thermal Vision and Night Vision will prove essential for identifying the zombie menace in darkness.
In addition to knowing where you are, seeing what's around you will definitely help you survive when a chomping, cadaverous fiend comes for a reckoning. For late night viewing, the OPMOD PVS-14 Night Vision Scope will let you peer into the darkness. When patrolling your camp in pitch blackness you have to be absolutely certain you can see everything, but at a distance it can be difficult to differentiate between an injured human and a zombie. For this we added the Thermal-Eye X-50 Thermal Imaging Camera. As we all know, rising from the grave expels most of the heat from a zombie, leaving behind only faint warmth in the lower extremities. So if you view a stumbling figure with warm feet and a cold head, you know to take the shot. Just as the 5.11 Tactical Watch lets you calculate elevation compensation for long shots, the thermal imager helps you shoot with the confidence, knowing you're only going to re-kill the undead.
No one survives long without batteries. People are going to loot stores for all the batteries they can find when the dead rise, so stock up now with the SureFire 123A Lithium Battery Box. Ten or twenty batteries might be nice to have, but you're not planning on living for just a few months, you're going to live a full lifetime. The included SureFire battery box has FOUR HUNDRED batteries. They're going to prove to be one of the most valuable forms of currency in the post-zombie world. While we only included one box in our Z.E.R.O. Kit, you might want to pick up a couple extra, plenty for yourself and plenty for trading. Just a few boxes could make you one of the richest men in the world!
Combine the outstanding charging power of the Solaris with its unique ability to distract zombies.
If you do run out of batteries and need to power your kit, a solar charger can become your best friend. Zombies have many horrifying abilities, but the one thing they can't do is blot out the sun, so when you set up the powerful Brunton SOLARIS Portable Solar Panel Battery Charger you'll enjoy 62 watts of power, which will keep your precious electronics working long after the power grids have shut down. As a side benefit, if a zombie attacks you near the solar charger you can yell out, "Left hand on Green!" and the zombie will forget your brains and focus on completing the task given them.
The SureFire Benelli Forend Light for shotguns turns a regular shotgun into a Zombie Destroyer!
While the hunger for human flesh overrides nearly all zombie impulses, certain childhood memories will temporarily replace their hunger. This is a short-lived solution though, as zombies can't tell right from left, and the resulting frustration will send them into a rage.
Give the Undead Nightmares by Taking the Fight to Them!
Once you've gathered your basic survival gear together, you need to think about how you're going to dispatch those creeping, gnawing, nearly unkillable monsters. Your rifle, shotgun and handgun (one gun will not keep you alive long) need to be enhanced for maximum zombie-slaying effectiveness.
The Zombie Stopper strikes fear into the hearts of undead creatures.
Let's start with the bread and butter of any zombie-fighter: the shotgun. Zombies are only dangerous at close range, and they often stand idly until a delicious human comes along. If you're clearing a house at night and a zombie steps around a corner you need to see exactly what you're shooting at, and the SureFire Benelli M1 Super 90 Forend Weaponlight provides a bright 120 lumens of light without changing your grip or weighing down your shotgun. It uses the Lithium 123A batteries from the SureFire Battery Box, so you won't need to worry about power. It's both super durable and powerfully bright. This will give you plenty of light to see those lifeless eyes roll back once you've given your zombie attacker peace.
While you need to see if a zombie is hunting you in the blackness of night, to turn the tables and go from hunted to hunter you need the absolute best in rifle scopes and red dot sights. Enter EOTech and their Zombie Stopper Holographic Weapon Sight. This red dot sight gives you an appropriately zombie-themed reticle, and placing that biohazard design on a ghoulish skull will help steel you to always take the shot without hesitation. Even if you're using the Zombie Stopper for hunting food it will always serve as a reminder that you must be aware of your surroundings.
Little known fact: zombies love the woods. If you're hunting deer to feed your family keep in mind that a walking creature of the night could pop out from behind any tree or bush and make a feast of your brain.
Don't rely on a non-zombie specific laser grip.
When a large herd of zombies is converging on your position you may not have time to reload your rifle or shotgun and may need to quickly transition to your sidearm. Since speed is of the essence it's best to have a laser grip on your Glock (the best zombie-slaying handgun). The Viridian Universal Zombie Edition Green Laser Sigh activates with a normal grip, so you don't need to worry about pressing a button to turn it on. Seeing the red laser on your target ensures you'll never miss a shot.
As a side benefit, zombies are drawn to the red light in much the same way a cat is (no surprise, as zombie infection comes from a feline-human hybrid virus). If you run out of ammo you can use this red laser grip to distract the zombies and make your escape!
KA-BAR Zombie "Kharon" Folding Knife 2-5698-1 is an excellent last-ditch line of defense against roving undead hordes, but it also serves well as a general purpose outdoor/utility knife. This KA-BAR knife features a sharply angled Tanto-style blade made from AUS 8A stainless steel and taper ground into a keen plain edge that's just 0.113 inches thick. KABAR Zombie "Kharon" Tanto Blade Folder Knife has an ergonomic, slip-resistant GFN-PA66 handle in a bright toxic green color, textured for improved grip, and the knife is equipped with a reversible pocket clip for easy carrying. Like many other folding blade knives by KA-BAR, the Zombie "Kharon" utilizes a lockback mechanism that will securely hold the blade in place when you're not using it. Make those brain-eating baddies think twice about messing with you when you carry the KA BAR Zombie Kharon AUS 8A Steel Folding Pocket Knife.
SOG Bowie 2.0 Knives S1T-L are the modern interpretation of the secretly-developed Bowie-style knife in use by Special Forces units during the Vietnam War. These incredibly sharp SOG knives utilize a faceted tip AUS 8 steel blade to hack through anything that stands in their way. Equipped with a scratch-resistant Black TiNi finish, these knives are pleasing to look at but sharp to the touch. SOG Bowie 2.0 knives make use of a smooth, brown leather handle with subtle finger grooves and stellar grip. It's easy to keep your Bowie 2.0 sharp as well, since SOG Specialty Knives has packaged the knife with a leather sheath; the sheath has a removable sharpening stone tucked away in its accessory pouch. From the sculpted crossguard to the precision detailing all over the blade and handle, these knives are sharp looking and sharp, period. When you absolutely have to strike fear in the hearts of your enemies, whether they be branches or people, just flash the SOG Bowie 2.0 Stainless Steel Knife.
Trimmed out fully in black, the OPMOD ERC Limited Edition Extreme Rifle Case lets you carry and store your MSR (Modern Sporting Rifle) without fear of scratches, dents, dings, and all the rest. This OPMOD Gun Case is lined with soft brushed Tricot, a scratch-resistant inner lining that will do no harm to the finish on your weapons, and protects its contents with over 2" of soft padding. The OPMOD ERC Extreme MSR Case is made to last, with heavy-duty double stitching, and a water-resistant heavy-duty Nylon shell. Because guns come with gear, the OPMOD Extreme Rifle Case is equipped with plenty of storage, including multiple exterior magazine pouches and a Velcro accessory pocket. A full-length zipper ensures that your rifle will stay sealed up tight inside the gun case. Treat your guns right - give them the best, only from OPMOD!
NOTE: Lengths given are for the INTERIOR dimension of the rifle case. The outside length will be approximately 2" longer.
The OPMOD Battle Mug: The only cup that can take down a zombie.
RCBS has reloading gear so tough you could bash out an undead brain and continue reloading immediately. From the RCBS Pro-Melt Furnace, for re-forging your bullets, to their Progressive Press, for getting your bullets into cartridges, you'll be all set for the next nightmarish wave.
Don't forget that at any moment a zombie can appear, so if you're sitting by a campfire enjoying a glass of water you may not have your knife or gun in hand. It's best to make sure ANYTHING in your hands is tactically sound, so never drink from a regular cup. Drink from the cup of survivors and champions the world over. The OPMOD Battle Mug is a super strong cup, made from aluminum and features a crenellated base for extra zombie smashing power. You can go from thirst-quenching to death-dealing in less than .45 seconds. We tested that.
Search for a Cure or You'll Search for a Grave.
Unfortunately, all the gear so far is simply a stop-gap as long as the zombie disease rages on. You can take down thousands or even millions of risen dead and hardly make a dent in the overall undead army. Don't think short term when prepping for the apocalypse. If you want a safe world for your children and grandchildren you must find a cure. For this you need the best laboratory equipment.
Test, test and test Again. Three tests should do it, by then you'll have cured the zombie disease.
We've included Qorpak Beakers, Labnet Pipettes and a Celestron Microscope so you can take samples and study the innermost workings of zombies. The destructive nature of their cells might lead you to a better understanding of their life expectancy or how to possibly treat their symptoms so they no longer hunger for human flesh.
Properly tamed, a zombie can do the physical labor of 30 men without tiring. You will only be able to determine if a zombie can be tamed through laboratory research.
Many hours of grueling arguments, exhaustive research and bite-dodging testing went into developing the selection of zombie survival gear below.
All the zombie gear in this kit is listed below so you can purchase the items separately, but remember that the kit was very carefully put together to cover all your bases. Each item you choose NOT to buy is one less day you'll live.
