So we all have our own little advice on how to pack your bag... and yet we all do it differently. Is there any ONE thing in your bag that no one (or very few) other people carry, and yet you couldn't live without?

For me... Hockey (Stick) Tape

Ps... Is it THAT obvious that I'm Canadian?

Maybe not unique but for me its cable ties and a pocket sewing kit.

I lasted 2 days in the jungles of Northern Thailand by cable tieing my shoe back together.

Niiice... Similar to the juggling balls, I do carry around my poi... and ya, a sewing kit (or rather a needle and thread) as well
