Here in sunny California, ground-splitting stomach-churning earthquakes capital that it is, we have become seasoned veterans in panic preparedness. Yet recently our mindless and near-zombie like hunger for The Walking Dead, AMC’s morbid apocalypse simulation/TV show, has completely neutered our measly earthquake relief kits. Sure bandaids, dental floss and clean undies are all well and good. But what about hatchets, combat throwing knives, molotov cocktails and crossbows? The zombie hordes may be soft, squishy and expire easily once you’ve ventilated their brains. But they are called “hordes” for a reason and a stern talking-to won’t cut it. Hence why we continue to shop around for the most idyllic apocalypse survival kit.
Enter the Lansky Tactical Apocalypse Survival Kit (T.A.S.K.) This is an emergency bag made for prosaic disasters all the way up to near-extinction level zombie outbreaks. T.A.S.K. come packed with multi-use battle axe, a 10-function multi-tool, easy-grip knife, Blademedic Sharpener, The Puck – dual grip sharpener, LifeStraw water purification for cleaning up to 1000 liters, tactical flashlight, Firesteel/Compass that can create sparks to help light a fire and the Paracord bracelet for easily toting 8-feet of 550 paracord.
The bag itself is a 20L tactical backpack with padded back panel and a oversized main storage compartment. There is a front pouch with gear pockets, M.O.L.E. attachments, adjustable hip and sternum straps, water bottle holder. Plus the contents can be locked down with the included compression straps.
