Zombies disadvantage is generaly speed. They are stronger, more vicious, and they don't tire. So you need to expand on their weakness. Wearing armor mitigates your advantage, you need to be able to maneuver. Armor would be usefull if you formed a shieldwall and tried to fight that way in tight formation.
Which I doubt modern people will use. What would be ideal would be light leather armor, perhaps even simply wearing motorcycle garb would work. The idea is not to be invulnerable , but rather to make it so that an unlucky stumble by the survivor or a brief lucky bite by a zombie doesn't puncture the skin. That seems to be certain death in most forms of zombie apocalypse, whereas even if the alternative is a damaged muscle or broken bone you at least still have a fighting chance. The goal should never be to go toe-to-toe with zombies.
Our tool use and clever tactics should make it possible to put down zombies all day long without ever getting within arms' reach of them. But accidents happen even with the best plans. The idea is not to be invulnerable, but rather to make it so that an unlucky stumble by the survivor or a brief lucky bite by a zombie doesn't puncture the skin. Try to bite someone. It's actually pretty hard, due to your jaw not being able to properly position and envelope someone's else limbs. This takes a lot of time even for normal agile human. Now try slow zombie.
Nah, in order for you to be bitten, you need to be overwhlemed, pinned down. At that point, you are dead probably either way. The goal is not to get into the position in the first place. Which is harder with "armor" that is robust enough to stop Zombie's bite. Usefull again, only if you need to physically push back zombies with your body mass. Which I don't think somebody would ever want to do. One of my favourite zombie series "Rot and Ruin" series had an interesting take. They had makeshift armor that consisted of thick carpet being wrapped around you so that you'd be mostly bite proof.
While it's not the best idea considering that it's hot, heavy, and makes you immobile, It's pretty useful because it means you dont have to worry so much about a stray bite to your arm. I just downloaded the audiobook but have up after an hour. Is it worth persevering? The main character started to get on my nerves a bit. Should I pick it up again?
I remember loving the series, but then again I read it in middle school so perhaps it was targeted at that age group. Perhaps you should check out the book and read it normally, see if you like the actual story and then go back to the audio book if you do. In the end, it is your preference, but I remember that middle school me would have highly recommended it. Side note: the series is pretty bildungsroman-esque, so maybe the main character may be annoying at first, but he will get better.
Or not. Sometimes they do but you have to realize that armor gets hot and the extra weight will make you tired.
More titles to consider
Wearing armor can be great if you know where you are going to sleep, but if you are on the move and need mobility it might just be better to run from them. Motorcyclists wear studded leather because it keeps the skin from abrading off in the event of falling off the bike. That's probably a good thing to look for. Nice sturdy work boots, gloves, and one of those transparent face shields that EMTs wear to keep infectious fluids out of their faces might also be good accessories that are reasonably easy to come by.
Soul of the Undead by J. Gerard Michaels
The most important thing about surviving a zombie outbreak is mobility. Covering your limbs means that you overheat more quickly, reducing your endurance. Ideally, you would survive somewhere that is moderately cool and wear something like a wetsuit- no limits to mobility and the cool weather keeps you cool. In World War Z book the underwater welders sometimes wear those The chain mail which is essentially what shark suits are worked fine for bites Knights in armor grappled all the time.
Full plate doesn't do anything to protect against joint manipulation. Hard suits as in basically a mini-submersible that you wear. Basically something like this. Zombies don't dodge attacks at all so just grab one's head by the pincers and squeeze. In WWZ the military used underwater rated guns that were attached to the forearms and each had 48 hours of emergency air and a locator so they could just sit tight and wait for support to clear off the undead.
I have no intention of ever swimming with sharks, but I'm so tempted to order one just because. A wetsuit is exactly what was used in the book Apocalypse Z. A simply Neoprene one was tough enough that zombies couldn't bite through it and flexible enough that there were no mobility issues. However, you had to cut ear holes in it to be able to hear properly. Plastic packaging scale mail seems like it'll hurt your mobility too much. Same for riot gear. Plus, all it takes is one of the plates to get pushed aside to open up a vulnerable spot. Remember, you're not just trying to deflect sword blows and arrows, you're getting grappled.
With that, along with some heavy pants and boots, and a helmet, the odds of a bite getting through are pretty low. It's a trade-off. Armor is really good for engaging a few zombies at a time, since it'll keep that one you let get behind you to focus on the others from chomping a hole in your neck. However, it tends to slow you down too much when fighting a large number. In that scenario, you want to be able to move fast, dodge, and attack occasionally, with great accuracy. The best outfit for that is a tight-fitting T-shirt, jeans with the belt loops removed, and a rifle.
People wearing armor tend to move slower, and have a smaller field of view. This can lead them to either miss, or become overconfident, and wind up swarmed. No armor I know of that a civilian can find or make could survive dozens of incredibly persistent, strong zombies feel no pain. You'd be surprised how many suits of knight armor made of scrap I've seen, pried open and left with a few bones and pools of blood inside, scattered throughout areas after a horde goes through.
In The Walking Dead show, people are often seen with Duct Tape wrapped round their arms, because it is tough enough to protect from a bite. Exhibit A. Exhibit B. In a lot of stories the people end up getting caught off guard although you do have them put on riot gear or extra layers in a few things. Heat is going to be one of the biggest issues followed by speed.
One thing you don't see often though is motorcycle gear. You can get a jacket that should stop most things and has some soft armor in it and it is setup with vents you can open. Many would still be hot to wear but a lighter adventure jacket could give one good movement and better protection then most jackets.
Most never even think of it, I'm sure. There are so many things that can kill you, and many of them simply can't be avoided. Dehydration, starvation, exposure, 'conventional' illnesses, etc.. Whatever your plan, if you even have one, you have to address all of these things in some way if you want to survive. Once The Turn came I can't tell you how many people thought they could head on down to walmart to stock up only to be torn to shreds by the perfectly healthy mob of people who had the same idea. If you somehow survived that, there were the inevitable fires running rampant throughout pretty much every major city.
The bandits. The cults. Hell I've seen more than a few survivors who mistakenly did themselves in driving too fast down an unfamiliar road. So I suppose if you manage to survive all of that you might have the time to think about some kind of bite armor. Shark mail, kevlar, leather, hell you can put a few layers of duct tape over some quality denim and they'll have a hell of a time trying to bite through that.
Then again even with the best of gloves, either they'll bite your finger off inside the glove or it's probably too thick and cumbersome to do any complex work while wearing it. If more than a couple get on top of you you're going to be exhausted long before they are. All it takes is just one slip. All that dead grime gave him an infection that he couldn't beat. Never got bit once but the dead fuckers got him anyways. Entering its sixth season, the kids and adults are growing up before our very own eyes.
