Thought Catalog: 33 Ways To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse
If there’s a zombie apocalypse, you can’t forget to pack these necessities mentioned on Ask Reddit.
1. Motorcycle gear. Motorcycle pants, jackets, and gloves are designed to prevent road rash injuries and are really tough. Wearing them (especially if you also use the helmet) makes you immune to bites.
2. Towels. Nobody thinks about wrapping their arms in them. Try to bite through a towel, zombie.
3. A good water filtration device like a Lifestraw or Sawyer Mini. One of them can often filter thousands of gallons of water without a hiccup. You can only go a few short days without clean drinking water, so it’s pretty likely that you’d die of dehydration before a zombie actually kills you.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
