Fans of all things zombie-related might want to listen up. If you haven’t already begun preparing for the inevitable zombie apocalypse (and have a ton of cash to blow), OpticsPlanet has got the complete survival kit sure to win you the war against the undead.

For $24,000, the Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations (Z.E.R.O.) kit comes with every kind of weapon accessories and gear you’ll possibly need to fend off those flesh-eating monsters. Don’t want to touch those zombies with your bare hands? The Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G. Kevlar Gloves will keep your hands safe from cuts and possible blood mixes with those things, and help you knock the zombies out if you ever misplace a weapon. Scared of a zombie attack deep into the night? Have a person in your camp group keep watch with the OPMOD PVS-14 Night Vision Scope to ensure nothing funny is happening while the rest of you are getting some sleep.

While the kit does not provide actual, full-size weapons (surprise, surprise), tons of accessories come included in the package. You can attach a thermal imaging camera to detect odd movements from afar, or the shatter-resistant red dot holographic rifle sight to pinpoint your target. Need to power your gears? A 62-watt solar charger is even thrown in for good measures.

 The Z.E.R.O. kit is also totally prepared for both some action-packed apocalyptic afterlife as well as hardcore research. If you happen to have a scientist in the group, it might be a good idea to start looking for a cure for a virus rather than just killing off zombies after another. The kit also comes with beakerspipettes, and a microscope to let the brainiac study and sample cells to see how one might possibly stop the mutation.

Is $24,000 an absurd amount of money? Yes (hey, the kit is already on sale from the retail price of $31,735). Is it worth all the gear? Well, considering a lab microscope can already run you several hundred bucks, the bulk kit might end technically saving you money in the long run. But when the day comes when the dead rises from underground, maybe you can just consider breaking into a lab and stealing the much needed equipment? Survival of the fittest at its finest.

Just remember: having the best gears doesn’t guarantee you will survive. Good stamina, precision, and basic life skills to hunt food are still necessary to fend off the monsters while you try to live another day. If you’re unsatisfied with the Z.E.R.O. kit, OpticsPlanet will accept returns. Though, at that point, who’s to say anyone will be left in the world to handle your customer service disputes? Stay safe!

That said, there are options for everything, including more high-end stuff like some of the Dyson deals we've included below. So, be sure to check out everything before you take the plunge.

On the other hand, if you'd prefer to go with a more traditional vacuum, check out some of these vacuum deals, as well as the alternative obot vacuum deals and Roomba deals.
