A belt with a bottle opener built into the buckle. Have one myself, and it has saved me many a time ;)

Hmm.. I gonna need to get one of those belts!

A small strapped travel wallet is my prized possession. You can wear it under your jacket, it has zipped pockets for all of your valuables and information, and you can keep it on you at all times without fear of pickpockets, leaving your passport in your room, or feeling bulky with a fanny pack.

I hate to be boring and unoriginal, but... leatherman/swiss army knife!

As far as gadgets go - it's gotta be king (or Queen?)

Is it gadget? I dunno but the award goes to the humble safety pin.

Also....its not a gadget as such but with a million uses, a sarong is wonderful.

I also agree on the Swiss Army Knife

Cone-shaped travel pillow to keep your neck from crinking on overnight bus and train rides.

Sooo true - I always make sure I pack a sarong it just has so many uses: towel, blanket, pillow, curtain, sun hat, top.... the uses just go on!:)

only for smokers like me.
I carry always an ashtray who has a lid (?)so I can close it with me.
Not only while travelling,also when I go to the beach or visit friends who are not smoking.(I take the stinking butts home with me)
