Here is a copy-paste of the tools/stuff list I have with me whenever I ride.
Hydrapack 3L fluid (Camelbak Charge, the vent is the 2nd best I saw so far.... CamelBak Charge Backpack | Blister Gear Review – Skis, Snowboards, Mountain Bikes, Climbing - The most honest, and in-depth reviews of ski, board, bike, and climbing equipment on the planet.)
The best vent I saw: 2012 M.U.L.E. Nv ® | Camelbak Official Store (have a look to the video, you will see the pads... ±1'' thick pads, really soft, well designed)
Multitool (Topeak Mini 18 Multi-Tool)
4 tyrap ¼'' wide, 10'' long
4 tyrap 1/8'' wide, 5-6'' long
6-10' electrical tape (black, ½'' wide)
smallest tube of crazy glue (3mm x 6mm x 30mm)
kelvar patch for tire side wall (1¼'' x 2½'' x 1/64''?). Glue not needed 99.9% of the times... it's the 0.01% that really sucks!
rear shifter wire (...the longer)
the 2 jockey wheels kit
1 drop-out (derailleur arm fixed to the bike)
the tool for unlocking/locking the nut of the drop-out with an allen-key
2 heavy duty levers for unmount tire from rim (my tires really tight, broke 1 lever once)
30ml Stan's juice (when feeling lucky with CO2 or after selling the tube 10$...)
1 Stan's valve
2 plastic grocery bags
1 4'' blade knife (spiked, 1 part that slice, 1 part that shred, can be smashed with a rock for working something...)
1 high pressure pump (most lightweight I saw so far...Mini-pompe à vélo Peace de Planet Bike > Mountain Equipment Co-op. Livraison gratuite disponible)
1 adapter for CO2 cartridge (simple, efficient even with mud in it(yeah!), can keep pressure for 2 weeks after cartridge perforation)
This is not the one I have, almost: (Planet Bike Red Zeppelin CO2 Inflator - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available)
2 CO2 cartridges
2 adators for valve (... to use a car compressor)
3 KMC power-link connector (stronger than the Genuine SRAM power-link)
5 chain-link (what I removed from the installation of a new one)
1 common complete tire patch kit
4 brake pads (without the small fork)
sandpaper 200grains/inch (3''x3'') (for adjusting the thickness of the brake pads when really screwed and without being able to reset the brake piston at 0% opening... **** happens with Avid galipers...)
1.95'' cheap tube (only been useful 1 time last season for me, not usefull the season before) (usefull to pay the daypass for riding)
1 butane torche-lighter
Fork/shock pump: When it's -3°C at 6h30 and +8°C at 11h00, it's cool to adjust the air pressure in fork/shock... Keep "FREEEEERIDE!" in mind
medecine tape (not the paper one, the heavy duty one for climbing)
2 plasters ½'' x 4''
10ml iode sack
4 electrolyte tabs (for dumbass that suffer of deshydration)
6 Tylenol 500mg
6 Advil 500mg
6 Cafeine 200mg (standard cofee) (usefull to get my ass back alive when exhausted)
6 Epinephrine (8mg, it's the legal dose in CAN, 32mg is enough to help someone with asthma or allergic issue...)
2 Pain relief (got this from my last operation... can kick a stonewall without being in pain at all)
50$US or 50$CAN (5x10$)
copy of driver licence
copy of healthcare card
All of the items listed fit in the small exterior pocket. Exception to the tire pump and fork/shock pump.
Tools weight? euh.... 5lbs? I know it's a lot, but, I've got myself, friend or unknown people from so much impossible situation that I won't remove anything. If you think about something that I could add, tell me.
