Leather. Its cheap, relatively easy to move, and a good leather would be bite resistant.

Or Firefighter Turnout gear. Puncture proof, tear proof...But its bulky and hot.

Can a human even really bite through most clothing?  I am not about to go test it out but I doubt I could bite through heavy jean pants, while there might be a pressure or pinching wound I think there would not actually be any teeth penetration.

Make sure to wear heavy long sleeve clothes and sturdy shoes.  The one tactical piece of clothing I think would be invaluable might be tactical gloves.

Ive got a pair of the hatch operator tactical gloves: http://www.securityandsafetysupply.com/products-duty-gear/hatch-6.html

I think the bite strength is enough research time.

No, seriously, they're exactly the same.


PS - Hey, Dead_Hot, that stormtrooper in the video who's first talking? THAT's a Canadian accent.

The best body armor? It's simple, really...

Babies.

And not just any babies, but, like...

Fresh, crying, writhing babies...

Just strap them all over your body like a modified jihad style grenade jacket.
It would be great! Have them attached securely enough to be able to run with them on, but loose enough so they could simply tear away from that baby-suit if a zombie were to grab hold. Hell, then you could potentially bring a whole crowd of the fuckers to a standstill (For at least a minute, right?) when they started fighting over said baby...


...Because you know they would fight over that baby meat... 


Granted you would have to lug around 120+ pounds of baby...and it's not all that practical...

...it just might work.

i see 2 (well 2 that i am gonna mention) flaws with the baby armor. 1st, where will you find all these babies. and 2nd babies always cry, real loud. they will attract more zombies than the protection is worth. But kudos for thinking outside the box!

I just got this rather terrifying image in my head of someone wearing BabyArmor(tm) who's been bitten and turned, and all of the babies have been bitten and turned, so the end effect is one regular zombie covered in baby-like zombie growths, all moaning in high-pitched little voices and reaching out toward you.

I would shit myself if I saw that.

God damn, I didn't think about that...that's some truly terrifying shit right there.
Imagine it like a spider with it's babies on it's back. Shoot it in the head and the fuckers could scatter when it hits the ground and swarm towards you. Aww, imagine 18 zombie babies gumming you relentlessly while you went through the moral dilemma of stepping on their heads or not.

I mean, I'm down...but that shit might fuck some people up.


BabyArmor(tm), that's fucking great!

I have so fucking got to use that in a story sometime. That's one seriously messed up, Silent Hill-worthy image. Spider-zombie spewing babies across the floor. Shit.

Fuck yeah, I'd definately get my read on about some BabyArmor gone wrong. You would have to create some kind of crazy-as-a-shit-house-bat kind of character with an overabundance of babies, but hell. It would definately be worth the read.

Ahh, yes. Resurrecting this thread because, well, it's just so goddamned fantastic.

In retrospect, I stopped and thought,

"Man, babies...that sure is offensive. That's sure to strike a nerve with...at least one of the newer members...perhaps we need to soften the blow."

So I thought up something that might be...it just might be...a hair more fantastic. My friends, I bestow a possible upgrade to the BabyArmor...






...PuppyArmor...

Hear me out now, hear me out...see, it's better this way! For a number of reasons, too!

One! No human babies have to die! Yaaaay for human babies!

Two, the noise problem can be remedied if you just duct-tape all of the puppy mouths shut...then the loudest they could do is whimper, which is considerably quieter than a baby crying, is it not?

Three, puppies are way easier to find.

Fourth, and most importantly, puppies are considerably lighter than human babies. You're breaking your workload down to possibly a quarter of the original weight, considering the puppies are young enough and smaller than a baby (So it doesn't affect your mobility).


Eh? Eh? You guys feelin' me? Really I can only see one downside, which is testing said PuppyArmor. You see, since we can't be certain if the zombies take well to puppy flesh, we'll have to do a harsh series of tests to make sure we don't have to do anything silly and time consuming like, say, shave the puppies to make them look more like humans, etc. etc.

So whaddaya think?
