strip the lining out of a set of firefighting bunker gear. It is made of kevlar and nomex. Made to be slash and crushtear proof.

Cheap but DIY needed: fire blankets

They're pretty easy to find, and come in big sheets so you could potentially make a lot of different shaped garments from them.

Only thing I can think of is the heat issue, they're gonna make you sweat - but better sweaty than zombiefied.

I would have to make do with what i have aready and its leather welding sleevs. they are flexable, tuff, and quick to put on and take off . the would only prevent arm bites though.

Favorite Zombie Movies: so far zombieland because i think it accuratly depicts what a zombie could be like. not a dead becoming undead, but an infected human... kinda like a dog with raibies. even tho signs of other survivors were non existant in the movie except for the 4 main characters and bill murray...

How about car tires for short order armor?

You could make them crotchless if needed? :lol:

Interested in this cable idea. What is a cat5 cable? Also I like the versatility of the gear. It's manageable, fire resistant, and should be effective at keeping zombies at bay.
Zombie survival is my #1 concern.

It's an Ethernet cord. Google "shrine of the mall ninja."

What elements would you incorporate into a full on set of body armor that is specifically designed to protect you from a attack by the walking dead.
Be serious , and have fun with it . I am interested in hearing about other people's ideas .
Serious? I'd make sure I was wearing good gloves, sturdy leather boots, and some damn pants, and let mobility and a firearm keep 'em from getting close enough to bite.

Fun? Starship Troopers power armor.
