The LaCie RuggedKey is built to withstand accidental drop s from heights far above what you'd encounter on your way to the office. Its rubber construction is 100m drop -resistant. That means ultimate protection for your key – and your data – for all of life's little stumbles.

Life's an adventure – and disaster can strike at any turn. With the RuggedKey, the last thing you need to worry about is your data. Heat and cold resistance protect your data in the most extreme of climates, whether you're trekking across a scorching desert or braving the frozen tundra. Furthermore, it's IP-54 certified for resistance to damage from dust and water projection. The RuggedKey is the most portable storage in the LaCie Rugged family yet, and the best on-the-go protection for the real world.
Full-throttle Transfer Speeds
Bigger files need better speed. With the RuggedKey's USB 3.0 interface, you get speeds up to 150MB/s for daringly fast file transfers. USB 3.0 represents an enormous speed increase from USB 2.0, and best of all, since it's backward compatible with USB 2.0, there's never any worry about connectivity.
Hardware rugged, and software secure – the RuggedKey key protects your data from the inside with AES 256-bit encryption. Easily create a password-protected area on the key to securely store all of your confidential information. Ultra-secure AES 256-bit encryption technology means the RuggedKey is secure from the inside out.

The first USB3 flash drive I've tried that actually maxed out a USB2 bus when writing. I'm not a big fan of the orange rubber or key ring, but they can removed, and that leaves you with an awesome solid aluminum drive.
