Spotlight on: Stylish Post-Apocalyptic Armour.

Armour is important. Like, really important. It stops you from dying. So I’ve sepnt some time searching the net finding armour that’s stylish and effective. No, you don’t have to thank me yet- wait and see how you feel after you’ve spent some money.

Why? Because most of the stuff I landed on this time is really high end. On the other hand, it’s beautiful and stylish. And how will anyone take you seriously post-apocalypse if you don’t at least look the part?

I already own some FreakyZDesigns things- some Steampunk style armours and some wrist guards. While their website isn’t great- and doesn’t show everything they have for sale- you can contact them. They inform me that most of their sales are made on Ebay. They’re also willing to do custom designs. From experience the armour is primarily for style over strength, but even thin metal over soft areas will prevent instant death. FreakyZ work with brass, sheet stainless steel and leather.

On the expensive- like really expensive- end, how about some reproduction armour? Made to really high standards, and all commissioned or custom work, Nigel Carren also does beautiful fashion armour– including some stunning shoes that my highly publicised shoe lust is going crazy over.

Nigel Carren also happens to be a charming gentleman with an excellent sense of humour and a healthy concern about our shared post-apocalyptic future. My other advice would be- endeavour to have him on your team.




High-end leather gear with a post-apocalyptic feel here. While all of their stuff could fit, I particularly love the garter belt.


See what I mean? Seriously stunning, high end fashion for beyond the end.

  1. If you’re going to wear armour post-apocalypse then you’ve got to get it now. For a start there’s gonna be no Internet or Postal service, so getting hold of it might be a tad tricky (plus, it might just be in high demand)
    Secondly you need to learn how to move in the armour. Whether it’s weight, restriction or overheating you need to know what you’re going to be dealing with. In advance.
    And that’s my excuse for wearing a chain shirt under my work clothes 2-3 times a week. Honest.

    1. You are correct, of course. And if our readers can;t afford these beauties, there are cheaper supplier out there (though the armour will be much more practical and much less pretty) Or you could even learn to make it yourself.

  2. I imagine if one is not quite so proactive (or financially solvent) as to order armor now, one could scavenge garbage dumps for tin cans and refrigerator doors and whatnot once the Big Day arrives.

  3. I go to opp shops and what not about 3-4 times a week, pick up anything that could be usefull, I have been working on armour that will be padded enough for blunt trumor, chain mail undersneath for slashess, cuts, and plate metal on top for stabs and over all strength.
    I plan to abtain some cevlar some where and have it under the metal plates on one half of my armour so holding a bow or rifle, if your my target, im bullet proof.

    I am 99% mobile in it, its comfy, light, breathable, and looks fucking dope. People gotta start taking life seriously.
