Finding the right bag that’ll hold the tools you need is getting easier as manufacturers release more options. No longer confined to the typical oversized, saggy saddle bag, tool wraps offer a cleaner, more compact way to carry your flat kit.

Jet Roll Super Sabre 2.0

Jet Roll Super Sabre 2.0:

New from Jet Roll is the Super Sabre 2.0 (seen in header & above). It’s updated with the same elastic and lightweight materials found in their Phantom roll. This helps the roll compress the items into a tight bundle and squeeze closer to the seat. Two large buttons secure the roll closed while a strap restrains it to the seat rails. The $60 roll holds a tube, tire levers, two Co2 cartridges and head, patch kit and micro-multitool. It’s available in two colors (silver and blue) with your choice of a black or grey strap.

Jet Roll Aardvark 2.0

Jet Roll Aardvark 2.0:

For mountain bikers, gravel riders, or anyone looking to haul a bit more under their seat, Jet Roll’s Aardvark 2.0 may be the solution. It features synthetic leather that’s adjustable with three button holes – for two buttons – and a pump loop. It’s sized to fit two 700×23-25mm road bike tubes or one 29er tube, a multitool, tire levers, and a handpump or Co2 with 2 cartridges. At $70 the Aardvark 2.0 comes in three colors and includes compression straps.

SpeedSleev Ranger S for bike tools

Speedsleev Ranger S:

After success with their Ranger saddle bag, Speedsleev is raising funds for their new Ranger S. It compresses a small multi-tool, two Co2 cartridges and head, two tire levers, a road tube and card or cash into a 2.75″x4″x3.5″ pouch. Similar to the original Ranger, the new pouch is secured with a robust velcro strap around the seat rails. The waterproof bag/wrap is currently available on Kickstarter starting at the $20 pledge and is only available in black.

I love my Speedsleev Ranger seat pack. It’s very simple, secure, and nothing rattles. I despised seat packs until using the Speedsleev Ranger.

Love the Speedsleeve! I picked up two at Interbike. It’s different than the typical seat bag but man, it’s sweet & simple. Really does the trick.

there is a theme going here, I love my speedsleeve ranger too, no noise, everyone hates squeaks and rattles, can get two road tubes plus all the other bits and bobs in. if there is going to be a seat pack, then it should be one of these. i would consider upsizing for the MTB or gravel bike

I really want to like these, but the lack of an attachment point for a rear light/flasher is major deficit. A lean, tight, quiet seat bag is great, but improving the odds that a driver approaching from the rear will see me, is more important.

Excellent point Robin, but at least the tight fit keeps the bag snug underneath the seat. This leaves plenty of seatpost space to mount a nice light on the seatpost underneath the bag, a vertical light that has a lot of coverage. (I use the Serfas Thunderbolt, for example.) I’d say check it out, it works!

I have the ranger and have mounted the thunderbolt 2.0 on the seat post below and you have the best combo IMHO. Ranger is perfect size.

@Robin, like you I’m always concerned about being as visible as possible. Stendhal makes an excellent point. I’ve never seen a light a light attached to a seat bag that has the proper angle. I use the excellent Bontrager FlareR attached to my seatpost. The Bontrager FlareR can be adjusted for that “perfect” angle. Give the Speedsleev Ranger a chance, it works fantastic.

Sadly, my ISP (Look 595) makes finding a light that will fit problematic

I hear you, I had a Ridley Noah with an ISP that was hard to fit for a light. Good luck!

Hi y’all, Rob here from Speedsleev. We hear you on the rear light thing. We have had so many prototypes with light tabs and they just never work great with flopping around and bad angles. On the other side of that, there are so many clever lighting attachment options out there so we continue to skip it for that reason.
To the one point, these mount so high and tight that it gives many options to mount a seatpost clamped rear light or something on the stays. I have a lupine and a Mini Bontrager flare that mounts right to the seat stay with soft rubber.
Anyway, thanks for the continued support!

Another Speedsleev fan here. It’s just the right size to fit a small form factor mini pump (former Specialized small pump, Bike Air mini pump). It hugs the seat so as not to be a hanging bag in violation of the Rules. It also is easy to transfer between bikes, although I ended up buying two because the spare tubes for my two bikes are of different sizes (different rim depths). Speedsleev also has excellent service. Highly recommend.

Also love my Speedsleev Ranger!…. That said, I can get it pretty small as-is, so I don’t see a need to downsize to this model!
