I've got 3 sets of keys for various roles, all loaded pretty much the same - hanging off small clips (image is the closest I could find online with a quick search) that can clip to belt loop, lanyard, or wherever else required at any point in time.

Works well enough.

This is my "daily" keychain rig. It is all mounted on swivels. The keys are wrapped tightly in a leather holder, which; does not make a peep or poke into my leg. It is minimal but has room for added stuff like a keychain flashlight or whatever the occasion dictates. And it is SWISS :)

If you really care about somebody you don't give them flowers or candy, you give them a Swiss Army knife!

I guess I should have put that I just use regular split rings for all of these keys :facepalm: I use NiteIze small S biners to swap my alarm system fob from set to set as well and that has worked great so far :cheers:

I have the plastic ones and they have held up well so far, I got them because of the bright colors but seems like I have seen the metals ones lately with colors too :think:  All I use to see were the stainless steel ones so I may pic some up if they have colors in the metal next time I see them :tu:

I have been using one of these:

Since I worked for a locksmith back in the 80's.
(NOTE): not advertising for Mr lock, jist the picture.
The great thing is they lay flat in the pocket no matter how many keys & doodads.  I was using a dangler to keep them off the bottom of my pocket (run through the little split ring), but didn't like the way it hung. YMMV.

Mine are on a clone of the LM carabiner which I attach to an Uncle Mike's Maglite/Baton ring for a police duty belt.
The ring is large enough to still fitt a Maglite even with the keys. A hair or ranger band keeps them quiet when needed and tucks in the molle on the back of my cell holster when not. There is enough length I can tuck in my pocket or leave to dangle.

I used to be a lot of things, and someday will again.

This is an interesting thread. Over her here in France and several european countries, men wear those small ´handbags' where everything goes in it. Like this :

My wife being from the UK hates those things but In summertime i'm having a hard time finding an alternative. I got the keys, the wallet, the cigs, the zippo, the SAK... And I hate feeling too manu things in my pockets. I'm not  gonna wear a jacket just to have pockets...

So i might steal some of your ideas

Oh, ok so a murse.. I kinda started with a fannypack, then moved up to something like that, then the pack just kept getting bigger,, right now I have a cross body backpack, but I hate having to take the hat off to put it on or take it off, the same when I get in/out of a car so I'm working on a mini custom backpack, at least that way it's easy to take on/off! Another thing I almost bought I forget what the name is, but it has multiple pockets and sits like a beauty pageant ribbon, nice and neat on the shoulder then right down to the hip, crosspaq or runnur, that's what they were called..
