What are some under seat storage options that are aesthetically pleasing, or at least not god awful ugly, and secure? I was running a Speed Sleev and finally lost it after many near losses. I only need to carry up to a cross tube, a multitool that includes a chaintool, and a tire lever.

None are pleasing to the eye. But i prefer having two bottles of water on hard rides and eliminate carrying things in my pocket. I'm using Fizik saddle bag but it does shake and I'm afraid it will break the plastic. I'm also using a crappy Decathlon saddle bad on my other bike. Don't care much about the looks.

I don't use mine very much, but when I do, it tucks very tight/clean under both a Fizik Antares and Berk Lupina without problem:

Most of the stuff you listed in your original post, I keep in spare water bottle or my back pocket... and always prefer to run without a saddle bag/roll.

I was actually looking at the one after I made the topic. It seems a lot more secure than the SpeedSleev. I used to keep everything in my pockets but on long rides its nice to have room for lots of food and it also means I'm less likely to forget something if I keep them all in one bag.

I use Lezyne Micro Caddy Saddle Bag when I need to. But I usually just try to stuff everything in the back pocket jersey. :)

I have a buddy that uses a SpeedSleev. It works ok, but TBH, I think it looks somewhat phallic with two CO2 cylinders in it.

I've been using this but it seems like the strap/velcro is worn out so it sags a lot now.. it's also ~91g last I checked. Recently purchased a Blackburn Barrier Micro saddle bag (25g) but haven't gotten it yet.

Yeah i use one of these http://www.wiggle.com.au/lifeline-stash ... black-l-1/

Lifeline stash and fine it is nice and secure, dont even notice it is there, cant see the velcro wearing out unless you are always removing it and putting it back on.

fits my phone, spare tube, multitool, a couple of canisters

Arundel Uno for multitool, levers, co2 etc will also take a small latex tube. Larger volume tubes folded flat in my jersey pocket

I use this > http://www.wiggle.co.uk/scicon-elan-210-saddle-bag/

It'll hold 1 x inner tube, 2x 16g CO cartridge and a valve attachment and 2x tyre levers and 2 allen keys and a packet of lifeline self stick patches. The Velcro holds it very tight. I've had it for 4 years now and it has never fallen off or become loose and looks much better than some of the monstrosities that some people hang off their saddles.

I wrestled with this and used a Bontrager underseat bag which clipped on for a long while...
