If you’re convinced of an impending zombie apocalypse, might as well splurge $24,000 on a survival kit.

OpticsPlanet’s Z.E.R.O kit — short for Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations — is chock full of gear to help you survive an invasion of the undead. Below is a sampling of what the kit includes:

  • Stanley First Aid to treat bite bounds and scratches

  • Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G. Kevlar Gloves to punch zombies

  • 5.11 Tactical Field Ops Watch to help you find your bearings; an integrated SureShot calculator helps you take the perfect shot from 1000 feet away

  • OPMOD PVS-14 Night Vision Scope

  • Thermal-Eye X-50 Thermal Imaging Camera

  • SureFire 123A Lithium Battery Box to hold 400 batteries; if you run out of batteries there’s the Brunton SOLARIS Portable Solar Panel Battery Charger

  • SureFire Benelli Forend Light for shotguns provides 120 lumens

  • Zombie Stopper Holographic Weapon Sight

  • Crimson Trace Zombie Edition Laser Grip, a Glock accessory, activates with a normal grip

  • Browning Zombie Apocalypse Knife

  • RCBS Pro-Melt Furnace reloads bullets quickly so you can shoot continuously

  • Qorpak Beakers, Labnet Pipettes and a Celestron Microscope to study (and hopefully cure) the zombie disease


Pretty hard core, right? And that’s just a fraction of the Z.E.R.O. kit.

Even if you don’t have the liquidity to buy this, if you’re convinced the world is coming to an end, it might be time to cash out the 401ks or remortgage the house. (I’m just joking, please don’t do any of that.)
