Yeah, I suppose we should keep denim in our BOBs from now on.


But I don't think I'd be too comfortable walkin' around in a Canadian Tuxedo.

Yeah, the main thing about denim is that most people can go out and spend it without even giving their pocket-book a second thought. Kevlar kind of takes away from the whole "Hell yeah, I have some of that shit in my closet!" feel.
Unless you're the kind to keep kevlar just sitting around in your closet...which I don't think most of us do. Although if you do, more power to ya.

Yeah I was just thinking, if something broke out, I may raid a motorcycle shop to steal some leathers. I guarantee you that something like this would be 100% bite proof:

I can't even sew up my ripped jeans. Mostly because I'm lazy, as I suspect. I'm sure I could nail it if I really needed to.

The Dental Science Handbook published by the American Dental Association gives bite pressures by humans as great as 15 tons per square inch - 83% as strong as the greatest pressure recorded for any shark. No wonder human bites are often so devastating - we have short jaws, powered by thick masseter muscles and armed with relatively blunt, chisel-shaped incisors.

Now this is an average adult sized living human, imagine a fresh zombie. I'm afraid Denim would simply not hold up to the pressure, if a zombie got a good latch on you. Someone did mention in one of the the earlier post that the secondary attacks would be a problem.
Any type of fluid that might be left from a zombie can cause a person to become infected.

soccer gear or sports gear would do it for zombies(Shin Guards and other stuff) or some Riot Gear/Correctional.

The sport/riot equipment would work against a a zombie, perhaps even 3 zombies but not if they swarmed you. I have personally worn partial riot gear and let me tell you that its not fun. After a few minutes of trotting around with a partial suit in an air conditioned hangar bay i was exhausted and i like to consider myself physically fit.

Personally the benefit of protection versus maneuverability is simply not worth it. Your much better off with a nomex overall of some type or light leather motorcycle suit.

I think the problem may not be the bite so much as the tear. I would expect the zombie to thrash about as it chomped on you tearing a big chunk of denim and flesh, like a shark, rather then just a straight up bite.

^agreed, if the zed had braces, and a wire was loose, it wouldnt matter what you had on, theyre like needles. I accidentally hit a guy in the mouth playing football with my shoulder and i got stabbed through a hoodie

Hey, I 100% agree, the best way to avoid being Zed-bit is avoid the z's. However, a bit of hand to hand may be inevitable. Might as well suit up right for the possible encounter, neh?
