    Guess I'm a bit lucky - I occasionally do some tailoring/dressmaking (it's what comes when your daughter enters high level ice skating exams!).

    Had some stretch lycra left over, and a spare zip, so made this...

    spare inner tube, selected tools, Axiom pump, puncture kit, tyre levers, spare lights, and spare silicon bands and a cable tie (you never know)

    It does all fit...

    Next to my Sony Z3 compact for comparison...

    Fits in my jersey pocket snugly - I suppose I could put the 'emergency' lights actually on the bike, but they're just cheap and nasty 'get me homes'!

    Sorry, felt the need to 'explain' my dress making skills...

    What's that?

    its a pump

    Ooooh - that's cool. Are they any good?
    Not worth the money. You pump away like a maniac for ages then you fail to notice your hand has slipped on the pump and you get pinched when force the air out. Minor annoyance but do it hard enough you get a blood blister or broken skin. I've not got big hands neither. Get the next size up in the topeak pump range.

    Lezyne flow cage, camelbak podium small bottle. Goes together like Lego, you'll never lose a bottle.

    As to pump, Blackburn Airstick is a good one, but no mini pump really does full pressure. I have the Airstick, light tube, multitool, topeak chain tool, three way park spoke wrench, couple of quick links and a tenner in a wee duck cotton bag that came with my gloves (Galibier Ginnetaccio, great gloves) . Sits in a jersey pocket nicely, and covers all eventualities.
