I recently chilled with a buddy of mine that's a survivalist and he really liked the coat I had (pic related, tried to get the best shot I could of the pockets). It has a waterproof zipper on the front and some hidden pockets on the inside. Anyways, he mentioned maybe putting some velcro on those inside pockets to make them more secure for running and it got my mind moving. Any other ideas on making this jacket better in case society falls apart? I'm personally kicking around trying to incorporate a hood I can attach with a zipper or something for harsher weather. Also, I guess general tactical/apocalypse fashion thread.

Convertible cargo pants are always nice. Layer them in cold weather and turn them into shorts in the summer. Make sure they aren't cotton. Get a

I just picked up a pair of these and they seem to best the best damn pants I've ever owned. I have a pair of the tech shorts and they are super durable (had em for 2 years and they're still goin completely strong). Arborwear seems to put out a super quality product

Word, cargo pants are the fucking future. You can hold so much shit. I went to a buddies house with two 360 controllers, wires, and a few games in my trouser pockets (ontop of the usual stuff). And if you live somewhere hot you can just roll them up to your knees during the day, unlike jeans.

They also get dry in no time.

>>13600 im actually looking for a set of pants/shorts although nylon is very nice its not the warmest and like you said, melts easy. what do you guys suggest material wise? for summer im less worried about the nylon and will probably go with a ripstop type material

i know cotton kills, but i was thinking like canvas work pants or like dickies fors summer fall, once it gets colder getting an over shell type legging to layer my legs.

sorry off topic but this could become an apoc clothing thread?

Nothing that makes noise. Noise is bad. If it makes noise get rid of it yesterday. Soft finely woven wool is very quiet, so is silk but you can't fucking wear silk externally are you joking

The nifty cargo pant fibers usually make swishy noises. Swishy noises will get you deaded. Unless you don't care about being heard, you should though.

Consider skintight clothing for showing everyone your genitals, you will need to be sexually available to repopulate the Earth. Skintight clothing will also make you look creepy to people who don't find you arousing, which is a pretty decent varying set of reactions to have from people in a post apocalyptic world. Ambiguity will get you killed. Obviously stay away from pastel tones.

Consider not wearing a hat. Hats can make you look mysterious, which is kind of ambiguous, which as we know now means you might be doing something other than chasing fleeing survivors with your perjina out, which is bad for survival.

Ballet slippers are incredibly creepy but so are moon boots. Choose wisely.

I'd say hemp, that's a really tough, hard wearing fibre.
Ponchos are good.
I've heard silk boxers are the best thing to be wearing when SHTF or camping/hiking.
I've also heard Goretex for boots.

Russian soldiers used to fold these big hankie things around their feet instead of socks, apparently if you tie it right that is a lot better for keeping water and mud out of your boots than spats or puttees.

Bush hats are the shit.

Shemaghs are the best for desert conditions.

If the world hit panic mode right now, I'd wear my lucky and favourite clothes.

The stuff in the pic is what i'd put on, plus a black hoodie, black camo shirt, black tee, black baggy joggers over jeans. All of this combined would cover winter and summer months, there would be some rotation available. The outfit is versatile in that it would age/get dirty better than most outfits - the camo jacket would be fine for dirt, durable cordura outer, weatherproof for hard rain. All black for the rest means i'm good for stains and dirt. The shoes have ankle support and if I tie laces properly, very versatile. The black bag is 30L, has proven itself to be reliable and comfortable with heavy loads.

Overall I think this is a very versatile look - in the early days I will just look like myself, an urban looking guy that can be perceived as having attitude or some thug about him because of his clothing if u narrow minded. As the weeks progress, the outfit will age and prove to be versatile and useful. The hat for style/sun and the beanie for sleeping to cover eyes/winter cold.

Also I will look cool there i said it.

i had a psychotic episode once, part of which included me running out on life for a quest which i believe, due to "the signs" was going to involve an apocalypse

tl;dr myself let alone tell u guys but i ended up wearing clothes i believed had prepped me for apocalypse - it was a parka and jeans haha, but it had some cool ass drawings on it which i believed gave the jacket spiritual protection and just made me look punk as fuck to everyone else who saw me

these are the best pants I've ever had - not quick dry, but the most rugged and utilitarian by far. I've got 2 pairs and then a pair of the shorts too.

I just got back from backpacking the Continental Divide Trail, the Long Trail and the Benton Mackaye Trail (3400 miles this summer) and carried this fleece as my primary layer the whole time - the thing still looks new. It's super durable and warm for what it is. It's my favorite layer

Is M65 jacket a good survival jacket? I have one that's at least 30 years old, is oversized, makes me look like a punk rocker/bum, heavy (especially wet) but if it isn't one of the most comfiest jackets and weatherproof I've ever had. I just wish it isn't so oversized. and brand new slim are expensive.

I used to be a huge M65 fan
When theyre new theyre water repellent, but that wears off after 15 or so years. Gore tex is better pretty much all around, but its loud as fuck
The m65 pants are pretty great for snow gear on a budget

70s military overcoat. I use this whenever im camping or playing in the dunes at the beach. Any occasion where function trumps fashion. Keeps mud off me and with a hoodie underneath you look like a hobo but youre warm and dry. Sometimes i use it as a blanket when im in a camping chair at a bonfire

Honestly? A really high quality synthetic rain jacket, then layering beneath that. Though I live in a pretty temperate climate with lots of rain fall. Leather clothes would be a great option long as I could find oil to maintain them. They would last multiple lifetimes if maintained properly.

Leather or anything synthetic would eventually be the prime choices as washing/frequent wearing of fabric without means of production would eventually wear out most garments within a decade. Not to mention decomposition rates.

My innawoods clothes would probably be pretty similar to what i wear at work every day, cowboy hat (wool or straw, depending on season), leather shearling lined jacket(leather+shearling take a while to develope a stink), hiking boots, jeans, leggings(theyre better than longjohns), shitty belt i stole from some cargo pants in kmart

Got a wool trench coat at a used store for $20. With a couple layers under it walking all day in -20C is easy and sometimes too warm. Outer pockets hold these thick af leather gloves. Inner pockets are big enough to lug my drug paraphinilia and bible and other essentials.

You might like zipper pockets and stuff.
They hold your stuff in the pocket so the stuff doesn't fall out.
