What's on your Keychain?

What's in your Wallet?
- BankOne comercial
There's a great article at Survival Gear Guru titled Choosing The Gear for Your EDC Keyring. (EDC I learned stands for Every Day Carry). Take advantage of holiday sales on any of the following:

  • Small multi-tools  (the Leatherman Squirt is a good example).

  • Corsair Padlock Secure 8 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive to keep your important documents secure.

  • A small lighter such as a split pea lighter.

  • A magnesium fire starter.

  • A seat belt/strap cutter.

  • A small flashlight like the Photon Micro-Light.

  • A small pocket knife such as the Victorinox Swiss Army MiniChamp

  • A can opener like the P-38.

  • A Bison container with water purification tablets.

  • A small pry bar such as the Widgy Bar.

  • A True Utility Cashstash Cash Capsule for emergency cash.

  • A SERE Pocket Saw

  • A pen like the True Utility Telepen Telescopic Pen

  • A whistle

  • Fingernail clippers.

  • A compass

  • Bottom Line

    If your keyring looks like the one above you'll have one full pocket or purse. The article suggests wearing it around your neck. Personally I'd attach it to a backpack or similar travel gear. I keep a micro-flashlight on my pocket keyring and use it frequently.
