I dont usually leave my bike anywhere out of site downtown. If I am hanging with some friends I will bring a U lock that could be picked easily but it would slow someone down. I like to keep my bike within my line of sight.
@work I leave it locked in the bike locker.

I use this for my cargo bike.

I go the opposite direction on my all weather commuter, but would like another ulock for downtown purposes. Still that bike wins the game of looking less desirable to most people.

I use much the same thing.

A custom-length Abus Granit 14KS chain and an Abus Granit 37RK padlock, for home/storage. And a pair of Abus Granit u-locks, for cycling/commuting, same-keyed as the 'home' padlock. Perhaps not the toughest stuff available, but it comes close. Any greater weight then I'd need to requisition a second pair of legs, so it's plenty. Acquired through Lockitt; good group, those guys.
