Im looking for suggestions for a new Jersey pocket carry pump.
I have a pretty specific list of requirement so I hope you’re able to introduce me to new things.

I don’t want co2.
I don’t want a pump with a hose. Direct connection only thanks.
I don’t want anything made by lezyne.
Max of around 8 inches in length.
Sub 100g
Actually be able to inflate a tyre in 300 pumps or so.


If the Silca pocket impero was a tad lighter, less expensive it would be a great option.


What else is worth looking at?

Even though you seem anti them and anti hose I've had a Lezyne mini pump in my pocket for the past couple of years. It has a hose tucked inside and screws onto the valve. Had to use it a few times and it's been the best mini pump I've ever had. Can get to 80psi with not too much effort so I highly recommend that one.

LOL no hose and no Lezyne? So what pumps did you have trouble with in the past? :D

My Lezyne pump with a hose works great and is super light. I'd hate to have a direct connection, you could definitely bust up a valve stem trying to pump hard.

I use a 45gr alloy pump that can get my tires up to about 80 psi. They advertise higher pressure but at high pressure everyone has a limit. That's mine.

It's only 6-8usd here in China and it doesn't last forever. Good for a couple of years if you don't puncture too often.

In the instructions it's mentioned that you shouldn't use the no hose mini pumps with two hands. Something about inflating the wheel on the ground with the spare tube, or a stone with a layer of something soft over it, under the valve where the pump attaches. That way you just put your weight over it and gogogo. No risk for damaged pump heads.

I have four lezyne pumps, three with hose attachments and an old direct mount.
These are all HV versions so no good for road use - any how, they have all let me down over the years in one way or another. Generally getting a hose screwed onto a valve with freezing cold hands in the rain isn’t fun. ( which is why I want to avoid buying another)

For MTB I now use a Silca tattico which is awesome but a but big for a jersey pocket. The hose has a lever to connect to the valve which works great. Fast, simple and won’t unscrew a valve core.


Shame a can’t combine all of these attributes into one single well made, small, light weight pump.

While the ABS Flex Hose that come with HV pumps have threaded Presta and Schrader connections, the ABS Speed Flex Hose that come with road HP pumps have Presta connections on both ends where one is threaded and the other slip-fit – no screwing required. Personally I would never bother with any minipump that does not have a threaded hose though…
