St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, but you can't rely on pure luck when it comes to being prepared. Many people celebrate by wearing green, but why stop there when you can carry it, too? Green is a great color for EDC: you can choose to go with a darker olive drab for military and outdoors use, or a vibrant shade so you can easily spot it at the bottom of a pack. With spring on the way, it’s as good a time as any to take a look at your carry and add some handy essentials that’ll help you avoid those mischievous leprechauns. Check out our picks for some green gear you can add to your carry this spring:

Zippo Green Matte Clover Lighter

With warmer weather on the way you’ll probably find yourself outdoors more often than in the colder months, so it’s a good idea to have a reliable source of fire and this matte green Zippo should do the trick. There’s a four leaf clover on it if you’re feeling extra festive, but the key feature here is the windproof flame that this lighter provides. Thanks to the small size of Zippo lighters it should be easy finding a place for it in your EDC.

Hmm, I live by leather, copper, brass and wood, but I must admit that this green EDC looks groovy.
I've been putting off getting a Leatherman Micra, as I use a Victorinox Signature every day, but the green Micra has my juices on the run. It's only a matter of time.
Nice themed article. Blue is next! ;)
I love this. These are all great handy things to keep us ready for an emergency too. We must always be ready for any emergencies. If you want a career that is physically active, exposed to different people, if you are always ready for emergencies and encounters, being a paramedic or related to EMS would inspire you and give your purpose -- plus it can give you a good pay. I read a great link at http://pacificmedicaltraining.com/ems-wages.html
Did I miss the Benchmade 940 Osborne Design in this pool of green?
Rad selection - nice to see our notebook in there. The 946 is a great choice, though I might step down to something just a hair smaller for pocket carrying. The 954 is my go-to:
