Yes, really. We all know how it goes. You wake up in an abandoned hospital, only to find out the world has been overrun with zombies. Most of the survivors have banded together, whilst the foolhardy or the brave have decided to go it alone. This may sound like the plot of The Walking Dead – well, it is, actually – but here at Dickies Workwear, we believe in being prepared for everything... even the zombie apocalypse. So here goes.
Dickies Quebec Super Safety Lined Boot
Trust us, when the world goes to hell in a handbasket, you’re going to want only the toughest, strongest footwear. Luckily for you, the Dickies Quebec Super Safety Lined Boot is designed to meet all your apocalyptic needs. Are you traipsing across the barren landscape in search of the last remaining dregs of humanity?
The energy absorbing heel is designed to deal with the toughest working environments. Do you need to make a quick getaway on foot? The Quebec boots bring the added benefit of being fully laced so there is no chance of them slipping off as you evade the drooling zombie horde.
Finally, when the crossbow fails and the gun runs out of ammo, you’re going to have to get down and dirty. The steel toe caps and midsole ensure that your tasty human foot flesh remains protected when you aim a roundhouse kick at the nearest attacker.
Dickies Eisenhower Max Trousers
The Dickies Eisenhower Max Trousers are an indispensable item for the end of the world, no matter what conditions you’re faced with. Or who you’re faced with, for that matter. (Remember, the zombie virus can affect anyone. Keep your friends close, and your shotgun closer.)
When you’re crawling through the dense undergrowth in search of food and shelter, you’ll be grateful for the added protection. These trousers also contain multiple pockets, handy for storing weapons, energy bars and other apparatus an intrepid survivor may need.
We recommend carrying some kind of first aid kit with you, along with a torch, water pouch, communication device and map or navigational equipment. It’s always better to be prepared. The trouser fabric, meanwhile, has water and dirt repellent properties, is resistant to tears and abrasions, and still offers freedom of movement. After all, when you’re battling the undead, laundry is the last thing on your mind.
Dickies Safety Helmet Kit
The Dickies Safety Helmet Kit is your headgear of choice when battling the undead. The wire mesh face shield protects you from any gory remnants that may go a-splattering, while the ear defenders help block out the sound gunshots and/or those unearthly zombie shrieks. Most important of all, the helmet itself offers protection from head trauma – in this school of hard knocks, the last thing you need to worry about is a literal hard knock to the noggin.
Dickies Two-Tone Parka Jacket
If the movies and horror novels are to be believed, you’ll be spending a lot of time searching for shelter, battling the elements and generally having a miserable time. There might even be a weather disaster or two, just to spice things up.
The Dickies Two-Tone Parka Jacket is perfect for the cold and miserable weather conditions. The jacket has a waterproof exterior, a detachable hood with a fur lining, and cuffs with adjustable straps. Furthermore, it has multiple pockets, both interior and exterior, for storing all those handy end-of-the-world items we mentioned previously.
It’s also available in a range of colours – red, for the brave among us that want to announce loudly “HERE I AM. COME AND EAT ME”, khaki or olive green for those wishing to blend in with the surrounding nature, and black or navy blue for those sneaking around in the dark. If you want to keep all undergarments clean from any blood that might fly off while fighting for your life, the waterproof range will keep you from blood and rain.
