Zip ties can be extremely handy on a camping trip. For example, you can “lock” your tent by threading a zip tie through the zipper, a precaution that should be enough to stymie unwanted forest friends like raccoons or snakes. You can also use zip ties to hang food packs or other necessities in trees to keep them away from bears, and to attach extra items to your backpack for transport. Secure zip ties around the bottoms of your pants legs to hold them closed, protecting against ticks, mosquitoes, and snakebites.
