Quick Look: Pangea PickPocket
It's something that most people don't really think about- just toss your keys in your pocket, purse, backpack, why does it matter? Over the last few years, I've tried a LOT of different methods for carrying my keys. From a lanyard, to carabiners, loose in my pocket, etc. While I don't think I've discovered the perfect method, I have found one that I'm pretty happy with right now.
My main goal when considering how to carry my keys is to keep them out of the way, but also easy to access. Carrying in my backpack never worked for me due to the fact that it made it a pain to quickly grab my keys when I needed them. When carrying on a carabiner attached to my belt loop, my keys were easy to access, but loud and jangly as I walked around, which I also was not a fan of.
Over the last few months, I've switched to using a Pangea Pickpocket. A $20 dangler from Pangea Designs. The Pickpocket is made from titanium, so it's nice and lightweight, and allows you to quickly and easily drop your keys in your pocket, and clip the pickpocket to the edge of your pocket, which allows for easy retrieval, and also keeps your keys over to one side of the pocket, leaving room to toss some other gear (for me, a flashlight) in the pocket. The Pickpocket also features a bottle opener for you partiers out there.
While I'm sure I'll switch my key carry method up before too long, I've found a method that keeps me content for now. For more information, check out Pangea Designs on their website: http://www.pangea-designs.com
