With a deck of regular cards, I'd show 'em The Sweetest Sound by Scott Cram. Totally impromptu and you get the spec personally involved in this effect.

You guys carry cards, gimmicked coins, and thumb tips on you AT ALL TIMES? I can't imagine. I have Bendover Bills and Roger Klause's Bill Transpo in my wallet, that's it. Other than that, it's borrowed and impromptu. I'm not trying to offend anyone, but I'd feel like a major geek if someone asked to see a trick and I replied, "Well, luckily I just happen to have this silk with me. Does anyone have a Mexican centavo with them? Oh wait, here's one....."

Here's how for a TT... I've got 6. One in each of my jackets. Pretty much guarantees not being without one. They're cheap, it's not a lot to spend.

I always carry a Haunted Key on my key ring, and at least a well worked ID in every coat I own.

Always, no matter wherever I go, I always carry the "this, that, other," card trick and an effect I created called the "coin melt."

I hate carrying a pack of playing cards when there are other effects that aer stronger and don't take that much space.

I didn't read through all these but I think the best answer would be nothing. If you really have to carry coins and deck on you, and six packet tricks and a rope all the time, maybe you need to learn some tricks with objects that are readily available.

Plus I feel like a nerd having all kinds of stuff on me and it is bulky.

I only take a ring, and do ring tricks.

Heres a demo of my routine:

I find that taking cards around with you makes you look geeky, almost begging for someone to ask you to show them a trick, and gets poor reactions - meaning magic with impromptu normal props always gets a better responce.

I'm in the camp that believes if you could really do magic - you could do it with anything. I always have my Hundy500 in my wallet, but rarely reach for it. Rather, I employ the magician's choice force with objects readily available, and close with some sleight if necessary. Works for me.
