For the past few years, I’ve used KeySmart, one of the best ways to efficiently hold my keys in place, so I was surprised to find out that they had released a more updated model of the KeySmart, in leather. The company sent me over a sample to review so let’s see how life’s been while using it.
Just like my wallet, the KeySmart over the course of time has developed a patina that has aged pretty gracefully. Available in both brown or black, I’m pretty into “all black everything” products so I’ve used the black unit much much more. Prior to using the KeySmart, my keys would randomly dangle in my pockets, often scratching up my phone’s screen protectors, as well as stabbing me in the pocket, but the KeySmart eliminates that completely. For $9.99, you can add additional expansions for more keys, including a bottle opener and quick disconnect which works wonders if you have a key fob that you may have to detach from your keys when driving.
The only key that I obviously could not get to fit into my KeySmart was my car key for obvious reasons. However, the KeySmart not only kept my other keys more organized, but it has made my pocket that much lighter. One thing I’ve always wanted out of the traditional KeySmarts that you can get on the KeySmart Pro is the Tile functionality. Unfortunately, the KeySmart Leather does not come complete with Tile, so if you want to be able to track your keys down, your best bet is to attach a Tile Mate or Tile Pro to your keys.
Overall, if you want your keys to stay in position without flailing around in your pocket, look no further than the KeySmart. I’ve tested other “Key Organizers” on the market, and none can compare to the simplicity and quality build of KeySmart. It’s quiet, compact, versatile, and honestly, the best method of keeping those keys together — regardless if there are 2 keys or 10.

What I Like: Leather look and feel gets better over time; Essentially a swiss army knife for your keys with additions that prove to be helpful
What Needs Improvement: Lacking TILE on the standard models
