My cousins christmas present...

I was undecided as to wether I should post this here, other gear or maybe even off-topic - if this is the wrong place, please move,cheers! Sorry for the crappy photos all I had was a mobile phone to take photos.

This is a basic zombie survival bag I put together for my cousin for christmas. He is very much into horror and zombie films and when we get together and get drunk, we chat about survival and outbreaks. So I put this together for him, stuff he will like and that will hopfully get him thinking a bit more seriously about preperation.

This is the bag, the contents, a DVD and a book.
Image

Food and water is, 500ml of water and a block of emergency rations made my Seven Oceans. 2,500 kcal per block and is similar to Datrex/Mainstay bars, but easier to get hold of in the UK.
Image

Here is a little FAK with pretty basic contents, a FFD, a box of waterproof matches and a BCB Survival Kit
Image

A 400mm machete with sheath and 3 different coloured light sticks.
Image

The bag, a simple canvas bag bought from eBay, hes also getting [REC] on DVD and WWZ.
Image

And here is the bag, fully packed with the machete attached.
Image

And here is a picture of my Marlin 1894c .357 and my Pietta 1858 .44 - just because I can!

I hope he likes it, i'm pretty sure he will though - Just thought i'd post it up here and show everyone.

Well played sir, well played indeed. lol


Looks like a pretty nice starter kit, hopefully it takes, and he goes all bat-shit crazy like the rest of us. lol

I like it! Zombie enough to be fun, but all useful and perfectly valid gear items. (well, the machete probably isn't horribly useful, but hey :P)

What's this REC movie?

Oh and pshaw WWZ - get him DBDA! Support your local raptorman!

If i'm not mistaken, REC is the movie that was remade last year as "Quarentine", of course, you need to stick to the originals.

that's awesome. you're a righteous cousin. :) I have to ask... why a machette instead of something more useful like a pocket knife? is it for the zombie apoc realism? and why the RGB glowsticks, but not a flashlight? are glowticks a zombie thing I'm unaware of?

oh, and lots of folks are gonna be jealous that you have Rec. supposed to be much better than Doomsday and it's not available here. :)

Maybe he's a raver? OONTS OONTS OONTS OONTS OONTS OONTS OONTS OONTS OONTS

Always need some glowsticks, right?


REC and Doomsday are pretty much, shot-for-shot, the same movie.

While REC gets points for being original, Doomsday gets points for not making me read subtitles while I'm trying to be scared at a movie.

Not to be a noodge, but Quarantine is the movie that was a remake of REC...Doomsday was the suck-tastic apocalyptic movie that stole bits and pieces from lots of good apocalyptic movies...

Wasn't there a youtube video showing you burning it down, I think at one point you even went "HAHAHAHA NOBODY ON ZOMBIE SQUAD WILL KNOW I BURNED DOWN MY COUSIN'S HOUSE".

crypto gets the magic bonus points of the day for actually being about to write out that sound. I could hear that. spooky.

valid and meaningful point. ;)

really? dang I could've sworn it was the other. not that I've seen any of them to actually know. I base my information solely on third party accounts from totally unknown and questionably reliable people on teh interwebs. it makes me feel warm and fuzzy. ;)

I sat here for like 5 minutes trying to think of a witty reply to this and I cant come up with anything.

There is nothing to be said, she wins.

Epic come back :lol:

I don’t see the connection between rec and doomsday :?

rec: similar to cloverfied, "self shot" style, Spanish made, all shot in an apartment block sealed off

Doomsday: British made, set near future, not zombies, just a death plague, most scens are shot outside, truely crazy creative to make the survivors either medieval or punk :lol:

Ow yes, the bag.. Awesome idea, why don’t you slip in a zombie squad leaflet as a subtle hint :)
