Travel item-unexpected favorite

Jump to last reply

Ever buy something you weren't sure you'd need and found that you were using it again and again?
Mine's a hiking stick- bought as suggested for a Turkey hiking trip and used now whenever I travel anywhere (or hike anywhere). It's really helpful on those endless marble steps without rails found outside mosques and temples, and on those terrible broken pavements.(last used in Greece, India, Nepal and Turkey Run State Park in Indiana :) )
My stick's by Trekkers, collapses to @ 16", is easily adjusted, and fits into a backpack.
What's something you bought for travel that you found to be much more useful than you thought it would be?
