8 Green Essentials to EDC This Spring

It's mid-March, and 'tis the season when things start going from dark drab blustery weather to nice green springtime surroundings (supposedly). And whether or not you celebrate the St. Patrick's holiday, there's always a bit of room to have some green in your everyday carry. Whether you are looking for the discreet tactical bent of olive drab or a stand-out bright green accent in your ensemble, we've got your fix. We've picked out eight of our favorite green EDC essentials to bring some color (and luck) to your daily kit.


Gerber Neat Freak

Sometimes nothing will do the cutting job quite as well as a real pair of scissors. But carrying a traditional pair everyday tends to be too bulky and cumbersome to consider. With the Gerbear Neat Freak, that's no longer a problem. It's a stout, compact pair of scissor with micro-serrated blades and a design that's comfortable to hold and use. Designed initially for outdoors fishing, its olive drab styling works just as well in an urban setting, and plus there's an integrated bottle opener at the pivot to boot. And at 6” overall with a blunt tip, you can even carry it in a jeans pocket without having to worry about poking yourself and ruining your clothes to boot.

Kershaw Shuffle II

The green nylon Shuffle II remains one of the best compact manual folders made by Kershaw, with a comfortable ergonomic tactical styling, stout 2.6” tanto blade, and the ever-ready bottle opener at the pommel of the blade. It's designed better than the original shuffle, making it easier to crack open a cold one when you're not using the 8Cr13MoV blade for cutting and slicing utility tasks. That rear tool also doubles as a lanyard hole and screwdriver in a pinch. And despite the somewhat aggressive styling, the manual open and small size of the knife make it less imposing to the knife-averse than many other EDC options.

Magpul DAKA Bifold

Next in Magpul's impressive DAKA line of wallets is a slim bifold, more suited for those of us who carry cash. Available in olive drab, the reinforced polymer makeup of this DAKA wallet stands up to the wear and tear of heavy daily use, and it has a non-slip texture that'll help hold it steady in an incline or atop a wet bar.

5.11 Tactical LV6 3L Pack

The LV6 is a versatile compact 3 liter bag that's suited for discreet urban carry as both a crossbody bag and as a shoulder bag. It'l even attach to 5.11 Tactical's larger line of urban tactical backpacks, like the LV18. The olive drab exterior has just a hint of tactical aesthetic, and there are other options that'll suit both your style and needs. There are no loud logos or webbing to exclaim to the world that you're carrying a tactical bag, but you'll appreciate the rock-solid 840D nylon construction and hidden concealed carry pouches for their subtlety.

Rofis TC1

The TC1 is one of the smallest USB-rechargeable LED flashlights you can have in your EDC, and it's one case where having it be a loud green color can actually be advantageous. Sure you can attach it to your keys via the mini lanyard hole at the rear, but if you drop it in the dark it can be nigh-impossible to find with your eyes unless you have some help. But what you get for that small size is astounding: a max output of 120 lumens out the front via its CREE XPG3 LED module, with three brightness levels, all the way down to a 2 lumen low mode that'll last you for an estimated runtime of 7 hours.

Leatherman Skeletool

Leatherman's Skeletool needs little introduction, being one of the most popular compact lightweight pocketable EDC multi-tools available today. But if you're looking to spice things up, it's available in a fun green metal colorway, that contrasts nicely with the stainless steel hardware of the pliers, tools, and knife. Plus, it makes for easy identification when you're rummaging through your gear to find it when you need it in a hurry.

Casio G-SHOCK GA-700UC

The GA-700UC line of G-SHOCK watches is Casio's military-friendly offering, with minimized glare and styling that complements the uniforms of our servicemen and women. This means it's available in olive drab, as well, but outside of the tactical treatment, you get the same bombproof G-SHOCK technology at its heart. The combination digital and analog time readouts provide quick and easy information when you need it, and it's a watch you can take anywhere, with water resistance down to 200 meters.

Orient Bamboo v4 Automatic

If you're looking for a more dressy option for your green watch ensemble, look no further the emerald green of the Orient Bambino v4. It has a traditional automatic analog movement, paired with a gorgeous and legible face and an attractive leather band that'll look good no matter how you wear it.
