Looking for a saddle bag for my mountain bike that can store bike tube, patch kit, CO2 cartidges and small tools.

Any recommendations on brand and type?

IMO, these things are lame. They rattle as you go down the trail.

Keep the weight off the bike and in your pack. :skep:

Guess I'm just old school. I've been riding with a seat bag on my MTB since 1986, and I seldom ride with a pack, unless I'll be out for a half day or more. On long days in Moab, I'll ride with one of my packs for the extra water capacity. However, I stay less fatigued and cooler with the water and gear on the bike. My SS, my soft tail, and my Trance all run dual water bottle cages and large bottles. Did 48 miles on Father's day and was fine with what I carried in the seat bag and in jersey pockets. Plan to race the Laramie Enduro without a pack, as well.

Wow. So I guess you don't carry spare pedals and a derailleur, pump, 2 tubes, (sometimes) a filter, patchkit/levers, big bag o' tools (inc.a ratchet/socket for the SS), 100 oz of water, bear spray, lots of energy bars/gels, sandwich, fruit, camera, first aid, keys, wallet and phone?

Must be nice. :thumbsup:

I musta been a Boy Scout. :p

I got a Topeak Medium Aero Wedge and really like it. I pack a spare tube, multitool, phone, keys, tyre levers, patch kit etc in there and that means no room spare for stuff to be rattling around. If I need more space and don't want to use a pack then it can be extended, too. Only downer is that it rubs the anodized finish off my seatpost.

I use Topeak, not sure about the model, but it has no clip, straps only. Clips interfere with behind the saddle position and tend to break down pretty fast, if you ride technical stuff. Instead, I secure the bag in place with additional straps.
