When the end of the world is at hand and zombie hordes are on the march, you'll want to be ready. Binoculars and night-vision goggles to track 'em. Full body armor to protect yourself and bats, tomahawks, and chainsaws to fight 'em off. Then survival kits for the aftermath. Plus, while you're waiting, you can put your gear to great use.
I'm not a hardcore survivalist but I do know this: it's only a matter of time before the zombie apocalypse is upon us. The signs are everywhere: global warming, cyber attacks, the rise of Justin Bieber. (And, hey, if they never come you'll have some great first aid gear on hand.)
