I tried an Eos M for a while. Went back to just using my phone. Samsung Note + Snapseed does the deed just fine.

My daily-carry bag has my gripped 80D, Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8, Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 and either Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 or Canon 18-135mm IS STM lenses depending on my needs as well as extra batteries and charger, remote shutter release, rocket blower, lens wipes, and extra memory. It all fits in one of the cheap AmazonBasics DSLR bags.

Most of the time I just use my Galaxy S7, since that has great image quality for stills and video. When I need something more, I bring my 80D with the 24mm STM attached, that's just crazy performance in small package.

On the days I go to work or if I just run to the store I usually bring my Ricoh GRii. It's super small, has great image quality, and a beautiful lens. It has a lot of really nice features built in; like useful features, not gimmicky ones. You can do depth of field prefocusing which is really handy for street, and my overall favorite feature. It has a 35mm crop mode which I've been using a lot lately (it also has a 47mm crop mode but that drops it down to 5mp so I don't use it. I treat it almost identical to my Olympus MJUii (film camera) which is program mode exposure, and a 35mm f2.8 lens (hence why I typically use the GRii in 35mm crop). I find it to be the perfect everyday camera, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone looking for a point and shoot.

6D + 50mm f1.8 STM. The combo works really well, and weighs so little that it doesn't bother me.

I find that my G15 does a fine job as an always available camera, and allows for fairly large prints should I need to. While it would be nice if the lens were a bit wider and a bit longer, overall it does the job quit nicely.

These days for me, it is the SL2 with a small lens, and it operates just like the rest of my camera bodies, and uses the same lenses, and produces great high ISO and low ISO DR results.
I'm a chimper. There I said it...

Thanks guys. I'm kind of in the same boat as far as my iPhone 7 Plus being my defacto go everywhere camera. It works for 99% of what I'd shoot and it's probably a better option than having to pull something else out of a bag and whatnot.
I'm still interested in a mirrorless setup, but hate the idea of more lenses.

My "Go Everywhere" camera is my iPhone 6S+ (until my 8+ arrives)

The camera I (nearly) always have in my bag, is the Panasonic LF1. It can even do RAW, and it has a viewfinder also.

A few years ago I bought a used Canon S90 to fulfill this function, but I could never really get into using it. Now I just keep my T5i and a couple of lenses in the car all of the time, and carry it with me if I think there is any chance I will want decent pictures. I do take a ton of snapshots with my Moto G5 Plus though.
T5i. Standard Canon zoom. Big Canon zoom. Wide Canon zoom. Plasticy Canon prime. Sony a6000 and a bunch of crappy old lenses plus a Samyang 12mm 2.0. Pentax K-5. Manfrotto tripod and head.

Mine has been my iPhone 6S+, but lately, down here in Florida, there have been a lot of stunning rainbows after the storms that have make me really regret not carrying one of my DSLRs with me all the time.

I like the G7X II. I am picking up the Note 8 soon so we'll see what that's like.
