If you're carrying your bag on, skip this item unless you want to give a TSA agent a gift. But if you check your bag, a good stainless steel multitool is indispensable on an adventure vacation.

Use the knife to cut food on a picnic, the saw to rip through kindling for a campfire, and the pliers, screwdrivers, and scissors to make small repairs. [$74; gerbergear.com]
