As I mentioned, they don't need full on riot gear. They just need a helmet and something for their forearms…. that's basically it.
zombies aint gonna shoot them, so no need for the vest. They can do without leg protection (for the most part). All they'd need is forearm and head, and they'll be dramatically safer. It aint like zombies are extremely fast and versatile that a helmet will slow them down that much.
Or what about a shield? it worked for the Spartans.
And what about using zombie blood for camouflage in certain situations?
