microSD cards by Lexar, Samsung, and Sandisk.
Growing up around a scientist and photographer, we always had film canisters. Kodak produced millions of them
and they were alumimum with a screw cap. They are only a little over an inch in diameter, and easily fit in your pocket. Love them. Even the plastic ones are great.
Fast forward, and aluminum film canisters are now 'vintage' but digital film is everywhere. The newest digital film is the microSD card.
The micro SD also turns out to be perfect for important files. Your critical business files will all fit on microSD cards, and cards holding 200GB are very reasonable.
The vintage film canister was great, but it's large for micro SD cards. I couldn't find a way to hold a few cards on my keychain that was secure, water tight, dust tight, and indestructible. So ...
Visiting with a friend who is talented in design and manufacturing, I shared a sketch of my idea of a purpose built canister for micro SD cards. What you see is the result of this collaboration.

Purpose built keychain storage.
Holds micro SD, micro SIM, etc

Anodized aluminum with an o-ring.
I wanted a tough little keychain case for
my backup microSD cards. It had to hold a terabyte of them.
It holds 5 or 6 microSD with space for a little foam to keep'em from jiggling.
It had to be water tight, dust tight, and very light.
A screw top makes it secure. It's very nice.
The screw top is designed to be low friction, so it shouldn't
unscrew in your pack or pocket if you bike or hike or run.
Inside space is 17mm x 17mm x 6.5mm, big enough for micro sd cards, sim cards,
medications ... small items you want to have protected on your keychain.
Outside 28mm diameter x 10.2mm heightJust over an inch in diameter and under 1/2 inch height
11 grams / Less than two Quarters
The ultimate air gap. Super tough for your keychain,
and the best gadget ever for small items.
Standards will change, so our little container is milled
square inside from aluminum billet stock. No slots. Just stack'em.
