7 Tips To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse: The Walking Dead Edition

In just 2 short days The Walking Dead returns with their Season 7 premiere and up until this point the show’s survivors have lived through disease, hunger, tragedy and betrayal. They found safety and stability in a world they once knew, but it turns out the world is even more dangerous than they thought. It’s a zombie eat human world out there and while TWD has presented us with some zombie survival tips, what if a zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow? Would you know how to survive?

7 Tips To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse:

1. Keep your head straight. Freak out for a minute, then calm down and focus. We all watch the show so we know what to expect.

2. Have a plan. Are you going to run to the mountains for higher elevation? Keep quiet and hide, hoping something else would capture their attention before they find you? Are you going to mimic them since they only identify each other by movements and sounds? Distract them? Out-run them? Whichever you choose to do, make sure you have a plan and stick to it.

3. Have your Bug-Out Bag packed and handy. Make sure it includes all of the essentials: Food, Water, Tools, Fire, Navigation, Clothing, Weapons, Shelter and a First Aid Kit.

4. Have the proper tools to fight off zombies.

5. Make sure you have a durable outfit to fight off zombies. First, you want to have a good pair of gloves with a hard knuckle feature to fight off the zombies and protect your hands. To protect yourself from bites, you should be wearing long sleeves and pants so you’re exposing as little skin as possible. Rothco’s Military FR NYCO Combat Shirts are made for comfort and worn for protection. Rothco’s V-max Lightweight Tactical Boot is the perfect footwear to have on. With a running shoe sole and comfort of a military boot, these lightweight boots make an excellent shoe when trying to outrun zombies.

6. Zombie Proof you house. Have barricades, like heavy furniture, blocking the doors and board up your windows to block them from breaking in. Aim for higher ground by going upstairs.

7. Last but not least, don’t forget to have a right hand man! You can’t face these zombies alone.

Freedom, Flags, and Tees

This election season, you can expect the topic of gun control to play a prominent role in the political sphere. Supporters of the Second Amendment are, no doubt, familiar with popular slogans such as: "Don't Tread on Me", "Molon Labe", and "Come and Take It". Over the past few years, Rothco has been expanding our line of popular Second Amendment supporting gear to include hats, patches, shirts, flags, and other accessories.

Like the "Don't Tread on Me" products, Rothco has also introduced new t-shirts with popular phrases that are synonymous with the birth of our nation like the "Three Percenter" Shirt, the "Join or Die" Shirt, and the "Liberty or Death" Shirt. What makes this country great is that everyone has the right to express their own beliefs and if you're a supporter of that then you might be interested in some of the gear associated with the phrases above.

Trend Alert: People Are Now Wearing Kale

You thought we meant the vegetable didn’t you? Kale went from a super food to a super cool fall color. It may be the powerhouse of nutrients, but this fall it’s the powerhouse color. Pantone announced their palette of colors for Spring 2017 and it is no surprise that “Kale” made the cut. This earth tone color, seen all over fashion week’s streets, was clearly inspired by the classic military Olive Drab and Sage.

These shades are not the only fashion statement inspired by the military – have you seen the October issue of W Magazine? In their first ever his-and-hers fashion issue, the “Make Love, Not War” shoot featured models in this fall’s “military uniform”. Showcased were Rothco’s Vintage Woodland Camo Tank Top and Rothco’s Vintage M-65 Field Jacket in Woodland Camo.

The iconic Field and Flight Jackets that have been around for decades may have influenced this military streetwear trend. However, now the accessories are going well beyond just jackets. It’s military inspired shirts, boots, bags and even dog tags that are being seen worn from day to day. Suitable for both men and women, Spring 2017 predictions have proved this trend isn’t going anywhere.

From BDU Fatigue Shirts and Jackets to Boots and Bags, Rothco’s authentic military inspired clothing offers a classic, long-lasting quality that keeps up with today’s trends.
