ot: protecting data on a usb stick

Okay so the data on my laptop is secure, but what about my memory stick?

I was thinking about this on Friday when someone in the studio borrowed
my 8Gb usb stick, but I'd left a bunch of concept art files on there,
which he then saw. No big deal, but made me think about what if I ever
lost my keys (to which the stick is attached). I can replace keys and
have locks changed, but I often copy work files to my stick because it's
easier than opening up my laptop and transferring files from my desktop
workstation to it.

Now as I use Macs 80% of the time, it would be easy enough to create an
128bit encrypted volume on the USB stick... but for the 20% of the time
I use PCs, this would be unreadable.

Can anyone think of a good cross-platform solution?

My first thought is to put "secret" stuff into a passworded zip file.
