What do you have in your pockets when boarding?

I was up riding on Cypress today, and I actually found myself having trouble reaching my bindings -- the contents of my pocket was digging into my ribs! So I went to the car and emptied it all out. Honest to god, you'd think I was gathering nuts for the winter. In all my pockets, I had:

- ipod
- knife
- screwdriver
- 2 granola bars
- blistek
- kleenex
- Contour (could have just put that on my helmet!)
- snowboard lock
- keys
- facemask
- phone
- wallet

Doesn't sound like a lot, but it was getting in the way. So what's the minimum "kit" you figure you can get away with, without resorting to a backpack?

I try to keep my pockets as light as possible, but these are the few items that I ALWAYS have on me.

-Granola bars
-Wallet
-Leatherman (actually had to cut off a snowboarding lock last trip)
-Soft goggle case
-Burt's Bees
-Sometimes water (depending if others are carrying some for the group)
