Yeah, because heavy metal armour isn't heavy or anything. The zombies would catch and over power you.
They do have melee weapons, one of them does have a sword.
But they need guns to take out crowds and other people with guns.
People don't just **** swords and use them willy nilly.

Well depending on the armor it might be less effective in the long run if you ever have to go on foot. What you need will be Kevlar or in the case that you can find it Motor Sport gear since they are both relatively light and can still take a nice beating before having to replace but I would suggest a mace with a dagger like back-up if you want to keep medieval-ish since they would require less force to get a good blow on a zombie

Having melee backup would be a great idea, in general. Zombies strength is often their overwhelming numbers, and all the swords in the world won't save you from that. Unless you have Unlimited Blade Works

Unless it was specially made it would probably slow them down too much and they could be easily overbalanced and have their helmets ripped off. Especially with melee weapons. Still, not a bad idea.

Knight armor is pretty heavy and immobile. But yes, using melee weapon is much more effective and practical: crowbar or wrench, for example, can also be used as tools.
The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks has ******* of good advices on this topic.

Actually plated armor isn't as immobile as many people think. The plates interlock allowing for almost full movement, it actually only reduces your mobility by about 10-15%. As for heavy a full grown man should still be able to run while wearing plate, even the heaviest suits rarely weighed more than 100lb.

But how could that be a tv show? It would be impossible for zombies to hurt you nobody would ever die and no zombies would be alerted by gunshots. It would just be people living nicely in their house and occasionally going for food slaughtering zombies with their swords and not even worrying about the zombies attacking them up close

Metal armour would be retarded. If a herde came you would be ******. Armour so heavy.

Also, it will be chinking all over the place making sneaking impossible.

You want thick leather. Know how hard it is to bite through leather? pretty much impossible unless you have the jaws of, well... Jaws.

I agree, that is much more logical than full plate armour, which would kinda be hard to come by in a zombie apocalypse. I would understand if it was medieval times but not in the Walking Dead Universe. Full compact leather armour or something a little more modern like Anaconda ballistic armour would be perfect for zombies and bullets, or possibly Kevlar since it is much more commonly used worldwide and it would be easier to come by. But Anaconda armour is the strongest if I'm correct, unless things have been updated with some new, stronger type of armour.

You know I remember reading about this idea in The Zombie Survival guide and in the book the author brings up some great arguments as to why armor is such a bad idea for a zombie scenario. Anyway I'm just gonna list them off
1. Any armor, even the lightest ones, are heavier than regular clothes and thus will tire you out faster.
2. If a zombie does bite you while you are wearing armor it could stop the bite from breaking the flesh but seeing as how zombies have no sense of pain or fatigue that prevents them from using their muscles to their fullest extent the bite will surely break your bones.
3. One of your main advantages over zombies is your speed, don't hinder that advantage by wearing armor. Tight clothing, short hair and cardio is your best bet for survival.

By the way if any of you haven't read it I suggest you pick this book up. It's a fun read.

Wouldn't the fact that zombies have no sense of fatigue show that speed really doesn't help? Obviously not all zombies can run because the muscles have probably gone to ****. But some can probably run and sprint much faster than you because they feel no pain nor tire. So in essence you could be caught easily.

Zombies might not feel pain, but their motor skills are severely damaged. Sprinting actually requires a good deal of coordination, and a zombie can barely perform simple movements (biting, walking, grabbing, clawing).

Zombies are decaying fleshbags, so what muscles do they have that can crush bones?
Any good quality leather jacket would stop a bite.
If I go by the guide, going up a flight of stairs will pretty much stop any zombies from following you.
Also, speed thing must not be working if they're having problems of being surrounded by zombies constantly.

Yes, because these are tried and true methods!

Look. If you don't wear light armor, you're a ******* idiot. There's a million ways you could engineer armor that is light and doesn't get your bones broken. Wearing a shin pad over your forearm isn't going to hinder your athletic ability and will save your life in such a scenario.

Hell, if you're fit/strong enough for it and know where some is, get plate armor. Back when guns were first invented (things like the flintlock or musket), plate armor could withstand a point blank shot from them. At that point you don't have to worry about being faster then zombies, just that they don't swarm around you.

But I meant taking the fan system and cramming it into a bomb suit or whatever. Even if it were powered by a charger, they're designed to go for a few hours before dying. Charge it with a car battery before doing whatever, and you should be good to go.

I imagine in the short term that COULD work, but then you consider the weight. Being able to not be harmed by them directly doesnt mean they cant kill you. Pulling you down and keeping you there (An 80lb. Bomb suit is a bastard to run or fight in I imagine) Then you are stuck under the grasp of the undead, unable to run or fight yet immune to their method of death. So you sit, until your power dies and then bake inside your protective shell.
This is all my preference of course. Id rather be able to flee and move freely than take my chances in outlasting.
Pic of course, unrelated.

Yeah, you would be thinking "An 80 pound bomb suit would definitely be comfortable right about now" as a horde of zombies are ripping the flesh off your body. Besides, OP never mentioned a bomb suit, even I, at times have wondered why they don't wear some sort of armor. It doesn't even have to be heavy armor, hell even those IronMan cosplay suits would probably be sufficient.

they're already infected. The zombie virus in it doesn't kill you if bitten because it doesn't exist. It's in the air, and only reanimates you, not kill you. However, these ARE rotting or rotted corpses shuffling around, so bacteria would be growing crazy all over them. It's not the zombie infection that kills you, it's the massive normal infection you get.
