Hello all. new to the forum. Steal Toe Boots are my choice. With steel heel/ankle inserts. Great for not getting bitten by snakes...why not zombies?

Yayyy let's all bicker about it. I still think motorcycle leathers are the best investment.

I like the motorcycle leathers, but there's a problem.  They need a bit of reinforcement.  I think adding a bit of denim to stitch it into a full suit would be better.  Also, the jeans I have are TOUGH.  Fibers of kevlar woven in.  Bite through that, bitches.

One comment I have for the group. Has anyone ever tried to bite through leather, denim, twill, any kind of heavy fiber other than cotton/polyester blends? Well I have when I was extremely bored and you can't.
Thats with a healthy ie. not decomposing set of teeth and gums. Just a comment for the group.
With that in mind, I submit that just a plain old set of BDU/ACU's with the pants tucked in to some military surplus boots. The entire set can be had at an Army/Navy Store for around $80 at a high point. The material is rip proof and heavy enough to keep out a bite on the blouse/pants and the boots are even tougher.
Get a good pair of kevlar gloves, a neck gator and some goggles and you're set.
For added protection wear a sweater and long johns under your clothes and some surgical gloves under your gloves and double the neck gator to prevent against worst case scenarios and you're set. IMHO that is. Unless zombies somehow have supernatural bite strength with decomposing jaw muscles.

well I was on bed rest in Iraq after getting a blast concussion and there was really nothing else to do so I was thinking about zombie scenarios in Iraq and decided to try to go zombie on one of my torn up uniforms. And voila! No go on tooth penetration. And army uniforms are less dense than denim, leather etc so I only assume you can't bite through those either.

I think the important question is not if u can bite through the fabric but can the skin get broken while being bite? even if the fabric does not tear or rip if u get undead juices in ur wound ur screwed

This is getting a little too "Pulp Fiction" . lol. Get in the box!

Now something that's "dog proof" I'd trust with my life.

"The biting force value of normal teeth of 770 human subjects were
measured by electric resistance strain gnathodynamometer. 365 were
males, and 405 females. Their ages ranged from 13 to 49. The results
showed that the biting force value of males is larger than that of the
females (P < 0.01). In the males, the biting force value of those aged
13-16 gradually increased with age, and the maximal biting force
values of incisor, bicuspid, and first molar of all the males were
43.3kg, 99.11kg, and 120.66kg respectively."
PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE

"Normal chewing places about 68 lbs/sq inch of pressure on the back teeth.

If you intentionally clench your teeth you may increase that force to
about 150 lbs/sq inch.

However, an individual who clenches and grinds their teeth
subconsciously at night can place up 1200 lbs/sq inch of force. That
sounds like an industrial grinding machine!"

Dental Health Directory Library
Bite and Occlusion

So the "dead" or insanely infected might produce a bit more than normal......not to mention clamping and tearing using the neck muscles.


So I'd keep em' far away no matter what!
