I used to use a thumb drive, but I was always either forgetting it, or worried about losing it.
Storing a copy of it online means I pretty much always have access to it (from my phone if nothing else). And from a security perspective, even if the storage service is compromised, the database itself is encrypted. So as long as your master password (or better yet passphrase) is strong, you don't really have too much to worry about.
Security is a trade-off between risk and convenience. For me, mine is the better way. But you could certainly do the same thing with a thumb drive if that's your preference.
