Gents,

any recommendations for a saddle pack that will hold a small multitool, inner tube, 2 cartridges and a patch kit? I'm tired of the standard velcro mount models eating the inside of my shorts where they touch against the seat post strap. I'm thinking one that mounts on a quick release under the saddle might work, but would prefer one that does not look like a set of bollochs. I've taken to just stuffing my pack in my jersey pocket, but that becomes a limiter on long rides.

TIA.

I used to suffer from the same problem.

Then I realized.... that front strap is not there to hold the back in place, it's just there to keep it from flopping around.

Trim the strap that has the "hook" part of the Velcro. It doesn't need to be as long and think as what's provided when you buy it.

I'm also a fan of this bag (Blackburn Zayante):

No Velcro strap. Not as secure, but it does a good job (if you don't lose the elastic strap).

I would split the load between the jersey pockets and the contintnetal road tube pack (this the smallest I have seen)

Bontrager Pro Micro seat pack is nice, should fit all your stuff and no velcro on the post to rub your shorts.

I have this and the Arundel. The Scicon is a single strap, easier to install, and tucks up tighter. Very nice piece.

If you pack it right, the Arundel Dual can be snugged up inbetween the saddle rails and sits there with zero rub and very compact barely visible from the front of the bike. It also is a single strap design. Affordable, light, durable.

I have one of this and it's awesome, holds a tube, levers, multitool and patch and it's very unobtrusive

After riding through the rain a couple times and having the stuff inside get damp (but not dripping/soaking) in fabric bags, I went with an Ortlieb bag. It's 0.6L so it can fit everything you wrote, probably a bit more too. They also come with a mounting system that should keep it away from your legs.

I used to suffer from this as well. Never looked back once I went with a Scicon Vortex 480. It is one of a handful of Scicon bags that fix to the rails of the saddle with a clamp and thus has nothing to rub off the inside of your shorts.

If you a Fizik saddle, you can use their sear bag that uses the ICS clip.

Topeak offer several options based on a clip system.
The sidekick allows side access.

Only problem is that the Fizik seat bags have a tendency to break at the clip. I broke one and it's why I ended up moving to the Scicon.

However, up until I did break it, I really did like the Fizik.
