What do you pack in your saddle bag? What would be your selection criteria for the ultimate saddle bag?

Just a micro pump, tiny patch kit and one spare tube.

Few extras for me:

Some spare sealing tape for the threads of my valve extenders.

A thin tube or stick to deflate a tire with the valve extender on. (In case I got a slow leak.)

Some string in case I break an alloy spoke nipple I can tie the spoke together with another.

On especially long rides I take another spare tube.

All of this goes in a tiny bag in my pocket with the phone inside. No saddle bag here. I don't even use a bottle cage. I got a large but light 1L bottle in my middle pocket. Aero and light. If it's not crazy hot I have a drinking range of 100km, and eating up to 200km.

Side pocket for snacks. Other side for phone/tools.

Small saddle bag: Tube patch kit, tire patch kit, spare tub, CO2 cartridge, mini tools.

Jersey pockets: phone, money, mini pump, granula bars and second spare tube for longer rides or rainy rides.

Everything i need goes in my jersey. Spare tyre and phone in my right pocket. The pouch goes in the center and food in my left pocket. I do own bags but wouldn't use them. The pouch and zip bag is certainly lighter than the bags.

I use a very similar setup:

Spare Tyre (tubular) & Co2 inflator in a pouch in middle pocket, phone, cash & credit card in left pocket, food & gels in right pocket.

Saddle bag not necessary...

I keep it simple, only other thing I add beyond usual, some duct tape wrapped around a pencil stub - saved my butt more than a few times

What do you use the duct tape for? I can only guess to tape the inside of a damage tire casing?

2 spare tubes, 2 tyre levers, 1 multi-tool, 1 pair of nitrile gloves (for fixing anything chain-related), and 1 zip lock plastic bag (for my mobile phone in case it rains)

In the saddle bag:
- 2 tubes (I've used both tubes on a single ride several times over the decades I've been riding)
- 2 CO2
- 1 compact CO2 inflator
- 1 small multitool
- 1 $20 bill
No tire levers: I know I can take my tires off my rims (I understand not everyone's tire/rim combination is easy)

Jersey pockets: Often empty.
- No keys: If I ride from home I don't need keys because the house locks with a combination. Only occasionally I carry the remote for the car if I drive to the ride.
- No phone: I rode for decades without one. I bring my phone if I expect to stop for photos.
- No food: Instead, I mix energy drink in the bottles. If the ride is long enough the group usually stops and I can buy some food.

Sometimes in jersey pockets:
- A baby wipe in case nature calls for #2
- Clothing I take off as the ride warms up: jacket, knee warmers, arm warmers.

Hate using my pockets for tools. Need that space for vest/jacket, food, and phone.

Like being prepared for everything these days. Always carry 2x tubes, tire levers, park tools ib-2, and a patch kit. lezyne pump on the seat tube.

Using the orucase saddle roll now and liking it. Uses a ski strap which is by far the best single strap attachment system I've come across.
