Looking for opinions on the best underseat storage bag or best way to store & carry a repair kit.

The usual tube, multitool, repair kit, cash, mobile, tyre levers etc.

Any experiences / ideas??

    lezyne look fab but told the straps are not great.
    Fizik do some great little ones that sit on a stick.

    Have a look at the latest C+, six of the best in there. One of them, the Edinburgh cycles Revolution Adventure seatpack comes with tools inc. puncture kit for £17.61, a great price. I have one and it's good stuff.
  • SOunds like a deal, but I already have all the tools just want the right bag now.

    Leyzne do look nice and get good reviews

    they have fab pockets all marked out for the bits. I have read the velcro straps become loose and they could fall off - not sure where I read that.
    I asked the same question a year back.

    They also do it, without the tools btw .....

    Specialized wedgie, comes in 2 sizes. You can cram all kind of stuff in the larger one, £15. Handy for longer trips. Easily stores all the usual, plus a mini pump with room left over.

    I'm a back pocket person, or small backpack, if I need even more room than the pockets can provide. Hate saddle bags. But that's just me.

    That's a new one on me. Never heard of Yehuda Moon. Looked it up on the web. Sounds interesting.
    FWIW I hate those things flopping around back there. Then again with my Arnold thighs
    I need all the room I can get :wink::wink:. Back pockets work fine for me but if I need to carry more than they will COMFORTABLY hold then I use a Camelback that I removed the bladder from. Thing cost me 20 dollars, on sale, and I get a fair share of use out of it.

    Leyzene all black medium, currently seems OK. Scicon– the clip broke on the 4th ride going over a bumpy road, Wiggle refunded. Topeak the clip broke but after a year. Not sure that any clip on bags are totally reliable.

    I'm a Lezyne fan, the details such as the pictures of where to put things is nice as it shows they thought about what goes where rather than random pockets for the sake of it. Trouble is then you have to go for the matching wallet which is jersey pocket size and then the multi tool, puncture repair kit etc etc, they are very clever but it is nice stuff.
