For those of you who do some long trail riding, I was wondering what you always keep in your fanny pack? What are your favourite trail tools? What tips do you have for someone putting together an tool/emergency pack?

i usually ride with a bunch of polaris' so we always need tools. tire plugs and tools, small air compressor, screw driver, electrical tape, small vise grips (life savers), and of course a roll of TP for those emergencies :lol:

We normally keep the tools in the truck. I have lost quite a few tools trying to carry them along. If we need something one of us will run back and get what we need.

I usually ride with a few utes so we just strap a few boxes on their racks. also we made toolboxes out of pvc pipe for the quads and mounted them on the frame near the front bumper, they work pretty good.

Yeah, leaving the tools in the truck works when your are in the vicinity, but we sometimes do 200 mile loops, 6-8 hour rides, so you end up being in the middle of nowhere sometimes! We've got by with the standard-under-seat tools kits, tire plug kits, and a small compressor and tow-rope. I want to be even better prepared this year, just got a new Ogio fanny-pack to fill up! :D

WATER! energy bar, first aid kit, solar blanket, matches, Leatherman, small metric wrenches, MSR(or like) ratchet tool kit, screwdriver, plug kit and/or tube, vise grip, pliers, tape, bailing wire, co2 inflator, spare levers, nuts & bolts, spark plug ....
You will think of more first time you are w/out. I know it sounds like a lot but it really isn't much space or weight.
