On top of all the other problems of a general purpose storage device.

I'd say just go with a smartcard or purpose built token device [1][2].

As for the multiple identities, different smartcards as needed. That
makes the reader the only device to carry and the cards you can cut
(some precut) to SIM-card size to make carrying easy. And there are
small readers available.
