    I would suggest a LOUD whistle,Fox40 or a nice titanium/SS one... just in case...
    And a pill fob, for some aspirines/meds.
    GITD/Tritium fob so you can find the keys in the dark
    Stash can, always handy to have some emergency cash.
    Leatherman Micra or Squirt.

    I know you said not much more weight, I thought that exact same thing, but my "toolchain" attached to my "keychain" is over 4 ounces now lol.
    But I use everything on those chains almost daily...

    If you want to keep it small I would remove the can opener (Do you really need it on your keychain while living in a City?) and change the Bug to a HoneyBee. I also own both knives and I like the HoneyBee much better because of its larger blade and better grip. Alternatively a Micra/squirt like Enkidu already mentioned. A whistle is also a good idea because you always have an effective signal device with you.

    Updated My EDC yet again


    I'm still trying to streamline & unburden myself from obsessive completionism. I've gradually chosen what is and isn't truly necessary for my personal work/life EDC. I bought 2 Atwood gasbabys & chose the flat gasbaby ti for its amazing featherweight over the s30v thicker /heavier (though more beautiful) mini-gasbaby xl, both of which I bought right here on EDCforums. For vacations or trips into the woods, I'd still go for my February 2010 version, but my current iteration is my perfected "everyday" carry (for now).

    [​IMG]
    A) Keychain:
    car keys on 15mm ring connected to "other keys on 15mm ring" via size 0 Nite-Ize S-biner.
    Tools attach to the "other keys on 15mm ring" via titanium 20mm McGizmo clips:
    1) Keys
    2) Verbatim Tuff 'n' Tiny 16gb USB 2.0
    3) Maratac AAA natural anodized Cree Q5 light
    4) Peter Atwood Flat Titanium Gasbaby
    5) Tec Accessories Pico Pen

    B) Verizon htc Droid Incredible
    (favorite apps: Calendar Pad, GoogleVoice, Key Ring, Keeper, GDocs, Listen, Where,
    Google Sky, c:geo, Aldiko, Mobile Defense)
    C) Spec-Ops Brand T.H.E. wallet
    D) Spyderco ParaMilitary in s30v steel, G-10 handle

    as comparison, I wanted to review for you how my EDC has continued to shrink in size/weight over the past half-year.
    Here's my EDC in early May 2010:

    [​IMG]
    A) Keychain:
    via coated twist-close wire chain, on McGizmo 20mm titanium clips:
    1) Verbatim Tuff 'n' Tiny 8gb USB 2.0
    2) Titanium Inka Pen
    3) Maratac AAA natural anodized Cree Q5 light
    4) Aluminum Bison Capsule containing pills
    5) Split-Pea Lighter
    6) EDC Forum belt loop chain
    7) Keys
    8) US Gov BigDaddy splinter tweezers
    9) Leatherman Squirt P4

    B) Verizon htc Droid Incredible
    (favorite apps: Key Ring, Keeper, 3, GDocs, Listen, Where,
    Google Sky, c:geo, Aldiko, Talk To Me, Peep, Astro, Trapster)
    C) Spec-Ops Brand T.H.E. wallet
    D) Spyderco Caly 3 in ZDP-189 steel, Carbon Fiber handle

    Here's my EDC in February 2010:

    [​IMG]
    A) Keychain:
    via coated twist-close wire chain, on McGizmo 20mm clips:
    1) Verbatim Tuff 'n' Tiny 8gb USB 2.0

    8) Aluminum Bison Capsule containing pills
    9) Titanium Inka Pen
    10) US Gov ninja splinter tweezers

    Wow, thats impressive. like me, similar keychain-development.. great stuff and neat arrangement.
    How tough are those Verbatim flash drives? Does the purple one still exist?
    And what titanium whistle is that?

    Thanks in advance.

    The Verbatim TnT's are the toughest flashdrives I've used. My previous 4 non-verbatim drives (PNY, SanDisk cruzer, SuperTalent) have all been destroyed by who knows what (electricity, scratches, whatever). Check out reviews of it like this one: REVIEW

    I got the ti whistle from uniquetitanium.com

    very classy setup ducati900sp. Two questions. Where did you get the trit holder, and what is the item hanging on the McGizmo clip?

    @dwong it's hard to say whether the style is better. I like that the tweezers are removable, but I feel like the micra scissors are a bit sharper. And it was a bit troublesome trying to put it on my keychain, I guess my split ring is a little too big. But with some work I got it on and it's going nowhere. But overall I would say the micra and style are equal in the leatherman keychain tool realm.

    The tritium holders show up pretty frequently on USN (you need Cove acces tho) if i'm not mistaken this one is made by Jason (KPD151) but he sells them without vials, you can get the needed (3x23mm) vials from John (Merkava) on CPF. do a search (on CPF or USN) for "Krypto-Lite" for more info :)

    Yes. The trit holder is called a "Krypto-Lite", this is the Ti version. Jason (KPD151) puts these up from time to time on the USN only. On the McGizmo clip I carry a pair of Munroe Ti Nanoceps (mini tweezers). Here is a breakdown of my keychain setup: http://edcforums.com/showthread.php/73396-My-keys-are-driving-me-nuts?p=909143&viewfull=1#post909143

    where did you get that plastic caribeaner? is it durable? i would imagine it would be lighter than the metal ones. nice set up.

    Thanks! I got the caribeaner from supplycaptain.com. I got a couple actually. It is a lot lighter and does exactly what I want....hold my keys on my belt loop haha. Its pretty durable actually. I think its a good lightweight alternative.
