The Bessa II and Ikonta can always be with you. I sometimes wish there was some stretch-format 127. I think that could have been really cool. A vest pocket folder is convenient.

35mm bodies rarely introduce flare in the optical path. The chambers of 35mm are pretty well baffled and flocked. Lenses too, for the most part, offer better freedom from flare. (Compared to the vintage systems, not Hasselblad).
35mm bodies have more reliable shutter speeds than the vintage folding cameras too.
