well, How about putting the CO2, levers, and inflator inside the seat tube and zip tie'en the tube under the rails of the seat?

Got my GF the Speedsleev. Nice and compact. Her old saddle bag with the Velcro around the post put holes in her shorts.

Looks nice. Now they need to make some or someone else needs to make them and not jack up the price. Actually considered making something similar but need to find someone with a sewing machine.

Wow, that is coolest thing I ever saw. If I decide to ever use a saddle bag again, I will go for one of those...

I use 2 small zip lock bags. One has a tube and the other has 2 tire levers, co2, mini co2 head, 5 in 1 multi tool. Everything goes into my Jersey pockets.

We made an order of 17 units of Speedsleev.com Seatsleev. I've been testing it intensively in mtb for about 500Km of stones and downhills and I'm extremely happy with the purchase. It doesn't move, it makes no noiseand it looks great, truly BADASS, unlike most saddle bags. We still have 3 more left, if you want one send me a message. Some pics of how it looks in my mtb:

I carry everything in my jersey when on my roadbike. Spare tube, patch kit, tirelevers + pump in center pocket (room for rain jacket if needs be) - Use a jersey with small zipped pocket - So there I have credit card, key to apartment, and a bill of cash in a small zipbag. Left pocket is phone (waterproof Defy+ running Android 4.2.2, hehe) and food. Right pocket is either more food and empty wrappings.
I would never use the speedslev, Can just imagine how everything would look after a ride in the rain...... When I Run tubs the spare tube goes into either an empty bottle holder or under saddle, but always stored in a zippbag.

I did the same. Then I realised that it's much better to carry those extra 500g out of the jersey. Actually, if jersey pockets are too full, the jersey starts bouncing when pedaling out of the saddle. also the jersey won't fit properly, and if you open the zit, the neck of the jersey falls behind... quite ackward.
Happy Trails !!!
