I usually carry my big pack with me to take tools, an extra book, extra tube, a sweater and my hand pump lest I be stranded, bored or cold. This, however can get cumbersome and the other night I decided I was being ridiculous in carrying my pack just for bike tools. Enter: THE MIGHTY FANNY PACK. I was able to fit a patch kit, tire levers, chapstick, I.D., debit card, cash, a couple of cigarettes and a multi-tool in it and then I just attached my hand pump to my rack with a zip tie and voila!
A pack-free night.
