    70 oz Camelbak. With chainbreak, 5 mm allen wrench, cellphone (music and emergency) and my license. I will eventually get a small seat bag for the tools and minimal first aid kit. Longest trail I ride regularly is 7 miles long. So no more than 3.5 mile walk at the furthest point. So no real point in me taking more. When I venture a few hours away to some longer trails, I'll no doubt stuff my pack to the max. I've got lots of unused room in there!

    I have a Fox something or other. I have small roll of toilet paper (you never know), mini pump, patches, tubes, allens, cell , couple bucks (bribe cougars not to kill me), tire levers, and a gerber multi tool. First aid supplies would be nice too.

    I use a Dakine pack (can't remember the name, 100oz bladder).

    Always carry:
    Cell phone
    Small first aid kit (gauze, saline wash (good for eyes too), tubing & surgical glove)
    Biodegradable wipes
    Energy bar
    Spare tube
    multi tool (Crank Bros. 18)
    small knife
    zip ties
    duct tape
    spare master links
    spare foldable spoke
    spare derailleur hanger
    Co2 inflator
    Tire repair kit/levers

    I also always wear a paracord/survival bracelet with a whistle on it.

    I have a larger pack load for long trips/overnighters, but that's just obvious camp/survival stuff and more supplies.

    2-3 hours XC riding - just a cell phone, tube, water and some money. No backpack, pure speed.

    Longer trips - 3l water reservoir + 0,75l bidon.

    I always carry adrenalin syringe with me, allergy sucks

    I started out carrying just a pump, tube, Clif bar, wallet, keys and set of Allens, but every time something bad happened to me, I added to my little bag. It's crazy how much "preparedness" stuff I learned the hard way. Here's what I'm looking like now:

    Dakine Drafter pack
    Hydrapak 100oz reservoir
    Park IB-3 multi tool (broke a chain only once, but once is all it takes)
    Quick Stik (found out I'm not able to mount tires with my bare hands anymore)
    Brave Soldier Crash Pak (road rash sucked - trail rash is probably worse)
    2 tubes (pinch-flatted my rear tire, then punctured my front in the same day. I'm running tubeless now, but if I shred a sidewall or something like that, there's NO WAY I'm walking 10+ miles again)
    2 Clif bars (sometimes 1 isn't enough - and sometimes a friend forgets to pack food)
    Topeak digital pressure gauge
    trail map (getting lost really sucks)
    Garmin Edge 800 (see above, plus it's a great training tool)
    pump
    HG pins (for me) & KMC Missing Links (to help out other riders)
    C-clips
    Oakley lens cleaning kit (clear vision is easy to take for granted - until a mud splatter hits)
    Craft stowable windbreaker (weather can be fickle)
    insect repellant (damn all mosquitoes & ticks)
    cell phone
    wallet
    keys

    I also keep extra zip ties tucked under my chainstay protector.

    I have collected a few packs over the years, so currently for longer rides it's a Camelback Octane with up to 70 oz. for shorter rides either go without or a camelbak fanny pack. In the seat pack I carry:

    Crank Bros multi tool
    spare chain pin for the shimano SIS
    patch kit
    2 tire levers.

    In the pack I carry:

    tube
    pump
    food
    a little survival kit with first aid, water purifier tabs, space blanket, fire starter, etc. (Does not go in the fanny pack just for longer more remote rides)
    If I'm riding someplace cool I'll take a camera
    TP
    Whistle
    Whatever clothes I need for the ride
    Depending on when I head out, a decent light.

    The Two water bottles and I-Phone is not in the pic. Trunk bags are a really nice feature and beats out back packs. First-aid kit is really important.

    Camelback Chaos.
    35 to 140oz of water (it easily accepts a second 70oz bladder... long rides in AZ desert during summer can be grueling).
    2 slime tubes (I run tubeless, but should I destroy a tire, and, I’ve given out a number of ‘em to less equipped fellow bikers).
    Patch kit and tire repair kit.
    Tire irons.
    Couple packets of duct tape (Lucky Duct)
    3 - 16 gram co2 cartridges, 1 co2 actuator.
    Mini pump, I hate it, it works terrible, and I’ve never needed to use it, but there it is, and I’m afraid to take it out.
    Small crescent wrench with the handle cut short and filed smooth.
    Small Leatherman.
    Allen set with a torx to fit brake rotors.
    Basic bike multitool (allens, phillips, slot)
    Dedicated chain tool.
    4” length of chain, spare quick link.
    Derailleur hanger.
    Derailleur cable.
    Comb to remove cacti, and tweezers to remove catci needles (tape works good for the little buggers).
    Cell phone.
    Wallet with some cash in it (I often ride to/from the trail and a cool Gatorade on the way home sure is nice).
    Couple Cliff bars, sometimes some beef jerky and/or trail mix... sometimes all of that.

    If I'm going to throw in a downhill run (I ride a mini DH bike... freeride-ish type bike and the 3 major DH runs on SoMo end in my backyard) I carry shin and elbow guards and a full face on the outside of the pack.

    ... as well as:

    full roll of athletic tape (keep it fresh - dried out tape won't help)

    foil emergency blanket (keeping yourself or someone else warm with body heat goes a long ways in reducing the debilitating effects of shock)... and remember shock and pain pills DON'T mix

    fire starter (I like a lighter and a flint sparker. That being said be VERY carful starting a fire in the backcountry especially if you are injured and might not be able to control it)

    zip ties (large enough and plenty (8+) to zip tie your tire to your rim)

    pencil and paper (pencils are better than pens, no failure and won't run if paper gets soggy)

    I hope you also brought a pencil sharpener. Pencils have been known to fail.

    In my camelbak..... bandaids and 2 allen wrenches. If there was a situation where I need something else, I'll improvise. I've been watching a lot of man vs. wild... I SHOULD be fine.

    I'm the medic in the group, so I carry a fair amount of medical supplies in my bag!

    I use a Camelbak H.A.W.G. NV, which is a very big bag to carry around. I have all the bike necessities: tube, derailleur hanger, pump, various wrenches, extra powerlinks, chain lube, patch kit, lights, etc.

    As far as the medical portion of it goes, there's far too much to name! The reason I carry a lot of medical stuff is because we had an incident where one of our riders sliced his calf open with the chainring. Since then, I've been carrying more that enough medical supplies to last a war.

    3L bladder filled with filtered water
    Quality spare tube
    Topeak Morph Turbo pump
    Multi-tool
    Some yellow pedros tire levers
    Whatever the day calls for

    I kind of pack "modular" style, with things packed in ziploc bags, like a mini first aid kit, food with whatever I need with the food, clean-up, small parts like brake pads & derailleur hangers, etc.

    The pack's simply too heavy for my body weight for me to ride with it all the time, since I like to sprint and catch air and basically have fun being free. I risk entering the situation of being far from home and needing to hike a bit, but I never go that far into the backcountry or far from civilization that hiking would be a bad experience.

    ... and if we just ...

    I would ask why so much but then I would rather have one of these two as my riding buddy.

    Around here I can't really get lost, neither get further away from paved roads than walking distance, so my packing list is short:

    Cash
    Cellphone
    Water, if I get THAT! far from the nearest 7eleven

    Along with a bunch of the stuff you guys have mentioned. I went to the local pet store and had a dog tag made with "I.C.E." (in case of emergency) and my wife's mobile number.
    If I'm knocked out, I hope someone see's it.

    Not nearly enough

    I have had to go in my pack for 2 recent trailside mishaps. The first was for some first aid for a friend and the second was for a mechanical. I have not paid much attention to my provisions as nothing too bad has happened in a while and complacency set in. The tube that was in there had 2 patches on it (I'm cheap but not that cheap), a used co2 cartridge, mini pump, a spare set of keys, a stick on patch, multi tool and 2 cone wrenches(have no idea why I have been carrying them for years) and even the alcohol wipes in the first aid kit were so old they were dried out.

    I went through the entire pack and topped up everything at the new year. Now, I just need to keep it that way.

    I pack lightly in an old backpack. Usually just a few water bottles/Gatorades, occasionally some snacks, and an allen wrench set. Now that I think of it I should probably go out and get a patch kit.

    I like the idea but wouldn't it be illegal to drink in trail? I would be careless about it as long as one don't throw empty bottle/can in trail. Is this more like nothing happened if no one saw it type of thing?

    Exactly, I might ride like a stupid happy person but I'm pretty sure if I do this, I'll have one just before I head back and ride happy and just enjoy the ride more. Just thinking about it makes me grin.

    But then, I'm pretty sure it's illegal. At least here in PA. I could try but I would have to wrap it with a brown bag like a bum. lol

    You guys carry the proverbial kitchensink with you.

    Myself, as little as possible.

    Camelbak, the racer one, the minimal with no waist strap. Looking to buy a Camelbak Charge since it is a tiny bit larger and have little more room for the basic essentials.

    Anyways:

    Water
    Snack/Snickers/Powerbar
    4/5/6 allen keys
    Chaintool, usually
    cellphone
    some cash, if I was smart and planned my two wheeled excursion
    Tube and some way to inflate it
    Tirelevers
    Thin windbreaker, either a vest or a jacket

    Hm, I think that`s it. Thinking of rigging a second bottleholder on my bikes and trying to fit the essentials into a large franken-bottle to ride unburdened.

    Ful 72oz. Hydration Backpack
    Park patch kit
    Metal tire levers (3)
    Park Alien II multi-tool
    Spare tube
    Spare master link
    Extra jersey and vest (ride early mornings and start with a light jacket)
    Bladder full of water
    Power Bar
    Wallet and car key

    That's about it but probably should add a small first aid kit

    Do Camelbak MULE's keep the pack against your back or is there room for ventilation between your back and the pack. What packs have the best ventilation?

    I'm surprised at how few people carry lights in their packs. Having something to signal with to another hiker/biker or a helicopter is huge to increase survival if you've became seriously injured and you're off the trail. You can use the light to signal at night OR day.

    I carry the usual stuff everyone else has but one of the best things in my bag is that my phone, an HTC EVO, has an extended battery which enables it to last up to 2 days without a charge(normal battery life is 6 hours). My cellphone also has an extremely bright LED flashlight which has an app to set to flash SOS over and over. I also notify my friends/family when and where I'm going to be riding and all of them know how to access a phone GPS tracker I use which will give a search and rescue team my exact location up to 30 feet.

    SOS / Tracking

    As far as signaling / battery life, I recently changed from a mobile app to findmespot (findmespot.com).

    So far, I've been pleased with the coverage.

    sorting though the summer kit as the hours of day light are shrinking in a hurry. here is my guides kit. most of my riding is in fairly remote zones. I dont carry water in my back pack as there are a lot of streams around and a water bottle does me just fine. for the late season I am adding a real head lamp and a warm layer. also carry a VHF radio and or a sat phone for work.

    I use an Axe sack/ soccer style backpack, it was one of the tihngs my Uni gifted to us last year. I carry my Cyclone waterbottle, a pouch I'm supposed to put under the saddle, which contains stuff for fixing flats. That's really it, and I keep my mobile in my pocket, using it for music and GPS. Compared to the rest of you guys, I can say I'm pretty underprepared and it's embarrasing. Haha.
