In my round-the-world travel bag

A Listmania! list by Andrew Todd (Baltimore, MD, United States)
The list author says: "I've spent the last few years backpacking around the world, everywhere from the Sahara to the rain forest, and places in between. Here's a good idea of what goes into my backpack before I leave on a trip to keep me safe, clean, and comfortable."
Revere McMurdo FastFind 10-91-001-210A Model 210 Personal Locator Beacon
1.  Revere McMurdo FastFind 10-91-001-210A Model 210 Personal Locator Beacon by McMurdo
The list author says:
  "If you're planning on spending time in the wilderness, carrying an emergency personal locator beacon, or PLB, is an excellent idea. These operate on a global satellite network maintained by the United States government, and can find you when no other method could. This particular model is lightweight and inexpensive; it's been in my pack everywhere I go."

Nokia N8 Unlocked GSM Touchscreen Phone Featuring GPS with Voice Navigation and 12 MP Camera (Gray)
4.  Nokia N8 Unlocked GSM Touchscreen Phone Featuring GPS with Voice Navigation and 12 MP Camera (Gray) by Nokia
The list author says:
  "Outside the US, it's usually easy and cheap to get a local cell phone number, if you have an unlocked GSM phone. The Nokia N8 is about the most versatile phone out there.

You can also save a lot of space by leaving the camera at home, and carrying a good-quality cameraphone like this one. The most memorable pictures from my trip were taken on my Nokia N82."
