Anyone use and can recommend a cable lock for luggage?

I know none of the ones on the market would deter a determined thief but I would use it on my luggage if I were in a hotel room with no safe.

I'm sure many of you have seen the video of how easy it is to open a locked bag's zipper with a pen      

I figure a bag cinched tightly with a cable is at least another level of deterrence.

I settled upon the Wrapsafe adjustable cable lock from pacsafe.

Again, I recognize that this will not stop a determined thief but its another barrier to entry and could deter a thief who is short on time and just looking a crime of opportunity.

It packs nicely into an included pouch that is about 4 inches across and a little over 5 inches tall.

I'm taking it on an overseas trip later this month.
