But what about metal? I have these little pockets down the pants I'm wearing that I want to put some stuff in to make my bags lighter since I have shoulder/arm problems. In particular I have rose salve in a metal container I want to take because you can use it on lips, hands, face, etc. And will light-weight metal like the type wrapped on gum or granola bar be a problem? What about a zipper on a little pouch? And I have a stylus for an iPad that has metal--will that be a problem? I don't want to put these little things in a big checked bag because they could fall out if the bag is ripped and especially I don't want to lose some things like the stylus as it belongs to my daughter whom I am visiting.My sister had a huge rip in her bag when she went to Sweden and she lost all her over the counter medicine. I think the baggage handlers ripped it on purpose and took the stuff.Medicine and personal items like the rose salve should go in your carry-on bag, especially internationally. You are supposed to go through the screening with your pockets completely empty. You can put those small items in a jacket pocket and send the jacket through the x-ray with your carry on and shoes. And shoes that slip on and off easily are a good idea. I wear pants with an elastic waistband so I don't have to mess with a belt.
