Not to be too "old school," but don't forget that if you feel the need to be discreet, you can always just drop a Spydie down into your pocket ala an old-fashioned pocketknife. I used to do this from time to time with my Delica. It would work even better with the smaller models. IMHO, clipped is best, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, right? For instance, going into a concert one time, the security goons were frisking everyone. So I unclipped my Endura and tucked it into my back pocket, behind my wallet. I skated right through security with it undetected and, 20 feet into the venue, took it out, re-clipped and headed off happily for the beer stand.
