Default What is the Best Tactical Vest for the End of The World?

Hi, everyone. Let's pretend that people are turning into zombies everywhere and you've exhausted your home time, and now it's time to move on to a different location to survive.

For gear to wear and to be ready to survive the zombie threat outside, what kind of Tact Vest would be the best to support for your survival?

I'm partial to a gray chalk stripe in a lightweight wool.

I would rather have good camoflauge than a heavy tactical vest. Vest might come in handy as far as getting out of the city and into the woods though.

In my mind, and that of others I know, There is No Substitute for this one.

Now, if I can just find someone to sell it to me.

Default Title heading? End of the earth?

If its the end the earth what possible difference would a vest make?
Its the end of the world if mother nature is takeing one in the boiler were along for the ride and not a damn thing you can do to change that.

Zombies need a earth to operate on so the world would not be ended IE like a astroid impact.

I did see somewhere that the starting price is in the neighborhood of 2k and up for the Dragon Skin body armor. I look at it as if the time comes, that would be something you would pick up after successful escape and evasion and thing kinda got boring for the troops occupying the area, then you could start getting the tech equipment you would need.

Just hope it never reaches that stage, because it would be messy.
