Paper clips, good for windscreens, repair wire, lots of survival uses. I always carry 2. Also small zip-ties, again very useful for repairs on packs, shelters, trekking poles, good for hang loops on bags.....
I'm no suture for my future.

After reading about zip-ties a few times, I may have to start packing a few. Sounds like a good idea.

Seems like you could just use chapstick for that. Dual use is a virtue.
