Mine is a cell phone (and some sealant in my tubulars, probably about 50g worth).

Same for me as pictured above, but I've got a couple things stuffed under the rubber bands: $10 bill, one small Allen wrench and a piece of paper with my health insurance particulars.

Nice! I was wondering if there were lighter options out there.

I'd thought about patches and that topeak mini carbon pump but it seemed like it was a hastle to get any real psi out of it (from the reviews I've read).

Or even ditch the levers as I can change tires by hand...

@hetchins, Prost!

Yeah I put mine in a little tyvek sleeve made from the envelopes from USPS...

It keeps the crud out and is breathable so I don't feel a hot spot if kept in my jersey's pocket.

Nice^

Im thinking of ditching the levers in place for the park pre glued patch kit as it's more useful...

all this fits in the red bag in the middle back pocket

1 tube (rolled in a paper towel)

1 tire patch
Lezyne HP Drive-size medium (I could drop 30 grams by using a smaller pump but I like having the extender hose and it actually pumps to a reasonable psi.)
quick connect chain link
swiss tech utili key
2 ti allen keys (metal parts rolled in a paper towel)
hand wipe
