USB thumb drive broke, now what?

I keep buying thumb drives, which you can attach to your keychain via that little loop you put your keys in, but they keep on breaking which opens to fall of my keychain every single time.   Is there anything out there that I can buy that I can either replace the broken piece or replace the broken piece?

I keep buying these USB drives that keep on breaking off my keychain and it's getting very annoying, not to mention, expensive.  For me, it's extremely convinient to carry them this way because I won't ever forget them.

What are my options here?

Buy a Thumb drive which have rubberised cover like one is of transcend jetflash v70. V70 which is made of eco-friendly silicone rubber that provides a pleasant tactile feel and offers excellent protection for stored data from shock, splashes and dust while working, exercising, or traveling outdoors. Besides, the JetFlash V70 flash drive is also equipped with a unique tethered cap holder that prevents it from getting lost when removed from the drive during file transfer. The Transcend JetFlash V70 USB Flash Drive supports all the Microsoft operating systems including Windows 98SE / Me / 2000 / XP / Vista, besides Mac and Linux, providing seamless data exchange between different operating systems.

Possibly you need the one steel covered with rubber on it. So called military style.
I've got a case that holds two small thumb drives and has the hook to attach, but I put it in my pocket. It has velcro and unfolds to slide out each drive. Most discount stores have them with the thumb drive accessories.
