    Default What's on your key chain?

    We haven't done this in a while and after I reviewed the new gadgets I know there have been some changes in key ring EDC's. Mine is getting a bit heavy but I'm sure it's a lighweight compared to some of you nuts.
    Post a pic if you can and a list of items.

    I will have to shoot a pic later.

    I still don't have a pic but...
    Several keys to padlocks and a couple of cars. ARC AAA, Leatherman Squirt, Lexar USB 1gb sport, 3 split rings attatched to a Berkley gate clip.

    At some point I would like to ditch 2 of the split rings and get 3 Berkely Mini Clips.

    keys(of course), gerber ridge knife , and a keychain version of a figure 8 descender.

    I'm in the process of finding a new light for my keychain.

    I keep them together on a carabiner( one of those from a hardware store, not the cheap colored ones that break after a couple of months.)

    eight keys, photon III, P-38 and a Victorinox rambler. I usually have a P4 and an Arc AAA with me when I'm not running in my lightweight mode.

    Just vehicle, house, and work keys plus a "Powerful Pete" screwdriver. I really don't like having a lot on the keychain. Too painful to sit on. I've also heard "Click and Clack", the car guys on NPR, comment numerous times about too much weight on a keychain contributing to ignition switch failure.

    Currently, my keychain is home to only two keys: car and house. Right on the split ring with them is a Zinc-Air Firefli which is practically invisible and weightless.

    Attatched to the split ring is a clip from an Inova Microlight that houses a Victorinox Signature II (I find its the best way to always have a pen and a better-than-nothing knife on me) and a Peak Matterhorn 1LED Snow Ultra.

    I find this setup fairly non-clunky as the car key, the knife and the Matterhorn are all approx the same length and can be finagled to lay next to each other in my front pocket.

    I am thinking about a replacement for the Inova clip however, as it was responsible for the loss of my Arc AAA rev4. I still want something that will allow me to quickly detatch the Peak and the knife that doesn't take up much space but won't let anything go accidentally.

    On my rather obese keychain I have (in addition to keys):

    Victorinox Rambler
    Swiss-Tech Micro-Plus 8in1 tool
    P-38 (can opener)
    Arc AAA flashlight

    Each on their own size 7 stainless steel split ring slid onto a 3/8" spring clip/snap hook.

    Mine's pretty plain:

    Keybunch (5 keys)
    Keytag with: reward if found note (with my mobile number), road assistance membership
    Arc AAA-P rev 4

    Pretty basic but I find a large key bunch annoying. I also find using a SAK/knife with a key bunch attached annoying, they get in the way when I'm working. I carry a leatherman blast, small sebenza and a hds edc seperately.

    Thanks, I'll admit it's a bit of a splurge for a keychain knife. My car is a 92 Olds. Into knives and not cars...
