Depending on your tastes, you might want your EDC gear to blend in and keep a low profile, or make a statement with bold, striking designs. One great way to shake things up from the usual blacked-out or all-metal motif with your EDC while keeping in line with the urban/tactical theme is with digital camouflage (or digicam for short). These computer-generated patterns differ from the old-school, “natural” looking camouflage found in military and hunting gear and instead sport a more modern, pixelated look. In the field, digicam effectively conceals the wearer in a wider range of environments and distances compared to traditional prints, making it more widely used today. As for your EDC, it can help your gear stand out with a modern, tactical flair, without being over-the-top. In this gear roundup, we're showcasing a variety of EDC essentials sporting different digital camouflage patterns.

Spyderco Para Military 2

When talking about all-time classic Spyderco knives (not to mention all-time great knives in general), it's hard to avoid talking about the Para Military 2. With solid features like a CPM S30V blade with trademark thumbhole and full-grip G10 handles paired with excellent balance, ergonomics and security thanks to its patented Compression Lock, there's a reason it's become an EDC staple. It's also one of the most popular flagship knives to ship with a digital camo pattern on its handles, giving a nod to its tactical heritage while letting the knife blend in seamlessly with the mil-spec gear and aesthetic it's usually partnered with.

EverydayCarry.com x Orbitkey Nylon Key Organizer

Our very own collaboration with Orbitkey keeps 2-7 of your keys silent and organized within a loop made from a 1050D Ballistic/500D Cordura nylon blend. The nylon construction is durable, abrasion-resistant, and weatherproof enough for day-to-day wear, while its custom digital camouflage pattern complements your EDC's urban tactical aesthetic. The digicam pattern is unique to each unit, meaning no two key organizers will look the same, making your key setup truly one of a kind.


SOG Aegis

With 3.5” of spring-assisted AUS-8 steel at your disposal, an incredibly strong piston (bolt action) lock to ensure lockup even during the hardest use, and an ergonomic, glass-reinforced nylon grip, the SOG Aegis is ready for duty at a moment's notice. Its ergonomic, digital camo handles pair nicely with the sleek black titanium nitride coating on the blade, giving it a no-nonsense tactical design with the performance and resilience to match. A versatile drop point blade shape and reversible clip round out the Aegis's features and make it a solid choice for everyday carry, too.

Direct Action Dragon Egg

The Dragon Egg is a 25-liter backpack that's built for the modern EDCer, hitting all the right beats for both urban and tactical needs. Three zippered pockets include a large main compartment with an internal hydration sleeve and mesh pocket, a rear padded pocket for comms or a 15” laptop or smaller, and a front admin pocket with internal organization for your loose essentials. The PenCott BadLands camouflage used on the Dragon Egg Mk II is a hybrid digital pattern with a natural appearance, and the combination of multi-sized fractal shapes, high-difference boundaries and hypo-acuitive dithering creates the illusion of depth to disrupt the shape of the wearer at any distance.

Fenix PD35 V2

Fenix has been a long-time EDC favorite thanks to the performance and build quality you get for the price. They've taken one of their most popular models, the PD35, and for version 2 gave it a bump in lumens, runtime, and throw distance, with a maximum of 1000 lm, 430 hours, and 25 meters respectively, thanks to a new Cree XP-L HI V3 emitter. It comes with a new metal side switch that doubles as a battery indicator. It maintains a robust IP68 resistance with its anodized aluminum body, with thoughtful features like an included clip and anti-roll design. Finally, a tactical tail switch gives instant activation for the PD35's 5 output levels. A painted digital camo finish gives it a tactical edge, helping it fulfill its popular duty in the hands of LEO and military personnel.

Spec-Ops T.H.E. Wallet Mini

Spec-Ops Brand's T.H.E. Mini wallet is a deceptively compact wallet that unfolds into a fully-featured stash for your cards and cash. The T.H.E. Wallet Mini is made in the USA from 1000D Cordura nylon and comes with a robust fit and finish in the form of reinforced stress points, mil-spec grommets, and even a unique “SHARK-BITE” closure similar to Velcro but with with no parts to wear out or make noise. Thanks to its 3-part folding system it manages to fit in plenty of slots and space for full-sized bills into a low profile when it's folded and ready to be carried. With this in mind the universal digital camo pattern the Mini sports is a perfect fit, lending its versatility and adaptability.
