Has anyone found zip ties to be useful throughout their travels? Seems like they would come in handy... thought I might throw some in my bag during the next adventure.

If you mean the electric cable things, we found them invaluable. We lived in Thailand for four years and travelled a lot in SE Asia. As soon as we got through passport control they went onto our luggage in Bangkok airport. Even more important for the return trip through BKK airport. We were stopped a couple of times inward and the customs officers supplied a knife to take them off. They weigh nothing and give great peace of mind.

Don't leave home without em'. I use them every where. Great for temporary backpack repairs and for hanging things off you pack or clothing to free up your hands.
