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.

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.

Ok , here's the task .
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.
