Everyday Carry: Lime

Jul 19, 2017

Category: Everyday Carry

There is a whole spectrum of colors out in the world, from the most vibrant yellows to the deepest darkest blues. So why do we so often relegate our everyday carry gear strictly to black? Sure, stealthy is sleek and cool. But it isn’t versatile or eye-catching most of the time. Even if you prefer a monotone wardrobe, you can still feature splashes of color on your tools, wallet, knife, and so on that will give your appearance a bit of a unique edge. Still, you always want to be sure you’re stocking up on good, useful, well-built gear and not just buying for fashion. With that in mind, we’ve put together this week’s pocket dump with some matching electric lime soundly-constructed EDC items with which to fill your pockets.

Gerber Dime Multi-Tool

The Dime is the tool that proves tiny is mighty. With over 12 different functions, this miniature multi-tool is small enough to fit on your keychain carabiner, but still comprehensive and tough enough to help you with any job. It even has a bottle opener.

Purchase: $15

Fisher Space Pen Bullet

Perhaps the greatest everyday carry pen of all time is the Fisher Space Pen Bullet. Not only can it write in just about any condition (including underwater or in zero-g), but it also comes in a number of finishes that can match anyone’s preferred color palette.

Purchase: $21

Opinel No. 8 Outdoor Survival Knife

From a trusted knife brand that’s been in operation for over a century, this handy outdoorsman’s knife is actually a multi-tool in disguise. It features a sturdy Sandvik steel blade; a shock, humidity, and extreme temperature-resistant handle; an all-weather 110 decibel emergency whistle; and a 4-10mm shackle key.

Purchase: $35

The Ridge Polycarbonate Wallet + Cash Strap

Built from the same material that goes into both bulletproof glass and the F-22 Raptor jet’s canopy, this tough lightweight minimalist wallet from the team at Ridge Wallets can hold up to 12 cards and some cash.

Purchase: $45
