2021 SURVIVAL DAY 17 (Jet Windproof Torch Lighter)

I usually keep my Jet Windproof Torch Lighter with my medical gear on my Tactical Vest. It’s not that I use it for any first aid purpose, its just that when I do need it, I’m figuring I will be hunkered down for warmth or to make some food before getting on the move again. So it goes with other gear I’m not usually going to be whipping out in the heat of a fight for survival.

Is it a critical tool? You bet it is. You ever been freezing cold as it’s drizzling around you and your toes are numb? Then you will understand why this Windproof Torch Lighter is a critical piece of gear.

  • Lighter packs with same picture are the same.
  • Both lighter without gas
  • Single Power Jet Flame More Powerful,Cool and Stylish.
  • Flame Regulator Rotate the bottom to adjust the size of the flame. Simple and Easy to operate
  • Visible Fuel Tank Let you know when to refill and when is full.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 16 (Rothco OTG Ballistic Goggles)

I keep a pair of these Rothco OTG Ballistic Goggles clipped to my Tactical Vest. When things go bad there will likely be flying debris just about everywhere. People inside homes will be breaking windows or just diving through them, and all it takes is one sliver of glass in your eye to drastically reduce your survival odds. Then of course there is the Zombies. Even heavy plate glass will shatter with enough bodies piled against it, and if that happens I want to keep my vision clear so I can fight as long as possible. If you can’t see, you can’t fight, and not fighting means you get eaten.

When things go really bad, its not going to be just the Undead you have to worry about. Other survivors are going to be panicked, and they are going to try and take what you have. That means potential incoming fire, and that means ricochets and if your lucky enough not to be hit, debris flying from where the rounds are landing. It’s hard to return fire if your blinded by chunks of wood and flying chunks of drywall.

Be prepared for anything, make sure you have your Rothco OTG Ballistic Goggles clipped to my Tactical Vest.

  • Meets Military (MIL-DTL-43511D) And ANSI-Z87-1 Standards For Ballistic Eyewear Protection
  • Designed To Fit Over Your Prescription Glasses Or Sunglasses
  • Anti-Fog And Anti-Scratch Lenses and UV 400 Protection Treatment

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 15 (CELOX Gauze Roll)

If I could only put two pieces of life saving gear in my Tactical Vest’s Medical Pouch, the two life saving items would be this CELOX Gauze Roll to control bleeding that a Portable Tourniquet just isn’t going to help with.

Ever see a head wound bleed? Even a minor one? Head wounds bleed, which means that the injured person may be unable to see or move if it’s pouring over their eyes, and worse, who wants a trail of delicious, fresh, blood to bring the Zombies in for dinner. With these CELOX Gauze Rolls, you can stop arterial bleeds on any body part and pack sever wounds to give the wounded the chance of surviving.

Make sure you check your Tactical Vest’s loadout every year and replace any supplies that is expiring in the next 12 months. If you need to use this CELOX Gauze you don’t want it to work sub optimally because it expired. I don’t throw those packages away, I usually use them in my home or vehicle med kit as they still seem to function fine – I’m just making sure my Vest’s med kit has the best gear possible because if I’m strapping it on, some serious shite is going down.

  • Helps save lives by controlling bleeding in minutes, works in hypothermic conditions
  • No heat, no burning.
  • Sterile, waterproof, easy-open packaging for single dose.
  • No special storage requirements.
  • Easy to remove from wound.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 14 (Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier)

Having a good multi tool like this Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier is a must have for your Tactical Vest. I’ve used my Multi-Pliers to field strip firearms, pull a malformed casing out of a hand gun chamber, as well as do minor repairs on everything from mowers to vehicles with V8s under the hood.

Keep a high quality Multi-Tool with your gear and don’t get caught needing pliers, clippers, screw drivers, a saw, a knife or scissors, which are just some of the 12 integrated components attached to this Multi-Tool. Oh, and I forget one of the critical items. A bottle opener. Because after a hard day of killing Zombies, do you want to struggle to open up a bottle?

  • Suspension Multi-Plier multitool with 12 integrated components
  • Saf.T.Plus component locking system guarantees safety
  • Lightweight open-frame stainless steel handle
  • Includes a ballistic nylon sheath
  • Weighs 9.6 oz; Closed Length: 4 inches
  • Limited lifetime warranty

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 13 (Black Nitrile Gloves)

I always keep a handful of these Black Nitrile Gloves in my Medical Pouch. Someone will always get cut or hurt in a survival situation, and after surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, I don’t want to get some random blood born illness because I didn’t wear gloves while putting a tourniquet or stitching someone up.

I keep another box of these Black Nitrile Gloves in my garage and put them on whenever I’m working with small engines or solvents. I keep yet another box of Black Nitrile Gloves in my vehicle. The primary reason is because I’ve been asked to help change tires or jump cars on multiple occasions, and wearing gloves just keeps my hands clean so I don’t track oil or grime back into my own vehicle – and also because I have also stopped at an accident in my past and held someone’s bleeding head until the EMT’s got there. Guess who was really happy they had gloves in their vehicle that day?

Be prepared for whatever life throws at you, and keep your hands clean doing it.

  • Latex-free, non-sterile, and powder-free
  • Textured finish for superior grip, strength, and comfort

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 12 (Shotgun Ammo Cartridge Pouch)

When it comes to survival, personal protection, and Zombies, I am a Shotgun man. Very few things are going to take a slug or buckshot and keep moving, much less get back up. Because a Shotgun is my primary weapon I usually attach three of these Shotgun Ammo Cartridge Pouches to my Tactical Vest, giving me an addition 48 shot shells of stopping power. Sure, it can add a bit of weight, but it’s worth the extra strain on my legs for the firepower it gives me.

  • Durable material with reinforced stitching.
  • 16 round 12G/20G capacity.
  • Quickly attaches to MOLLE equipped gear.
  • Compact size.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 11 (32oz Stainless Steel Water Bottle)

This 32oz Stainless Streel Water Bottle fits snuggly in my Tactical Molle Water Bottle Pouch and is perfect for every survival situation. The fact that I can put this bottle directly into the flames means I can heat up water, soup, or anything I can store in my Water Bottle, rust remember to take the cap off before you start to heat up whatever your cooking.

There is nothing better than a cup of warm tea or coffee when the temperatures are dropping. Starving? Just break apart some ramen and throw in the flavor pack and you have a nice steaming hot meal.

The other great reason to use this Stainless Streel Water Bottle is simply boil water while your out in the wilds. Clean water is not always easy to come by, but as long as you can find clear water, at least you can boil it to kill a lot of pathogens. It’s not as good as a filter, but when your out in the wild trying to survive, its better than nothing.

  • No paint, making it durable and scratch resistant.
  • Made of 18/8 stainless steel.
  • Designed to last a lifetime.
  • Camp boiling proof.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Wide mouth bottle is big enough to add ice cubes.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 10 (Shooting Gloves)

I keep a pair of these Shooting Gloves with my Tactical Vest at all times. When I need to grab my Go Vest I’m not going to have time to look for gloves and make sure I have protection for my hands. Regardless of the weather, when it comes to survival you want to make sure your hands stay in good shape. It doesn’t matter if I’m shooting, using an edged weapon or a bludgeon to kill the undead, protecting my hands is always important. Not only will injuries slow down my responses, but I don’t want to risk getting infected because of scraped knuckles.

I keep a set of these Gloves in my vehicle, as well as with my clay range gear and they’ve saved my fingers on multiple occasions. It is also always good practice to use your gear in real life prior to it being for a survival situation. This lets you get comfortable with it and make any adjustments necessary to make it work optimally for you.

The fact that these Gloves are comfortable is the primary reason I love them, but the fact that they also let me use my phone’s touchscreen without having to take them off is just a pure bonus.

  • Durable and Great Grip.
  • Form-fitting Design.
  • Sensitive Touch Screen Fingertips.
  • Flexible 2mm sponge padding on the back of gloves keep your hands and fingers protected.
  • Machine washable.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 9 (Tactical Molle Water Bottle Pouch)

You can march when your hungry, but if you’re dry, you die, making this Tactical Molle Water Bottle Pouch another critical item to keep on your Tactical Vest. What I love about this Water Bottle Pouch is that it easily holds 32 oz reusable bottle, but I can also squeeze two of most disposable water bottles into this Pouch if I need to. Sometimes it is just easier to buy or grab a few cheap disposable water bottles, stow them, and go.

  • 3-year manufacturers warranty and 100% money-back guarantee.
  • 1000D nylon for long-term durability.
  • Mesh bottom that prevents water from gathering at the bottom.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 8 (Flex Cuffs)

These Flex Cuffs are a critical part of every Barbarians Tactical Vest build. Zombies will be a big part of the post apocalypse danger, but people will be just as dangerous. If they get bit, you will be glad you have these Flex Cuffs to restrain them so you can shoot them without guilt after they turn.

The other scenario of course is other survivors. There are times when you aren’t going to know if you can trust them or not, and these Flex Cuffs give you the ability to safely restrain them in such a way that they can reasonably escape if you let them loose while still wearing the Flex Cuffs. It will give you time to put distance between you and them without forcing you to kill them if you’re not sure what their intentions are.

Plan ahead, be ready for any situation that comes your way by having these Flex Cuffs ready to go on your Tactical Vest.

  • Heavy duty zip tie handcuffs.
  • 250 lbs of restraint.
  • Light, portable and tough.
  • Quick locking and be ready for emergency situations.
  • Multi Purpose.
