A rear fender bag for your tools might work out better and keep the weight off your back. Here's some of the best quality bags you can buy made of ballistic nylon.

ok son, take it from me, my friends call me the "BAG BITCH" i love my bags etc...... been there done that. i have a BELL bicycle bag baught from WALMART. i mounted it on the front number plate (05 wr) i made a piece of hard plastic liner about 3/8 thick and the full width of the bag. then put quick removeable pins through the plate, then ran the bag straps up and around the handlebar for weight support. I carry a front tube(will work in the rear on emergencies) and three pro motion tire irons, two patch kits, moose axle wrench and some misc maps. the front zipper is easy to get to for the maps when needed.

my back-pack/hydration is mounted to my chest protector. wolfpakusa.com is the one. i love it. i carry an emergency blanket, waterproof matches, first aid kit, led flash light, toilet paper, expandable towels, full tool set(to much to list),co2 inflater, 12 co2 bottles, chapstic, 15' pull rope, alumabond(for emergency repairs) emercency seal tape for leaks, gps w/ spare batteries, 2-way radio w/ spare batteries, spare fuel(2-gatoraid bottles) carried in bottle holders, sometimes 2-smoke oil for the non 4-strokers, snacks, extra plug w/ waterproof holder, electrical tape, ty straps, spare tank breather tube(Lost five of them so far), etc..... I could go on and on. seems like every time i go out i find another wigit to add to my pack. it weighs about 35lbs with water and it doesn't bother me at all. it fits so snug that i forget its there. i had the fanny pack before and bothered me a lot. My buddies give me a lot of heat about my junk till they break down and need help. the one thing I havent got yet is a chain breaker and extra links.

have fun big guy, sorry no pics yet.

dube2 OUT!

OGIO bags are great, I use a 1950 for longer rides here extra gear is needed, a Hydration pack for short rides when upu only need water, tools and a couple of extras. I also have a 450 bag for tools only for certain situations.

I'm a fan of trying to keep weight off the bike- the 450 is heavy enough already. I wear a backpack with a hydration pack inside- size of pack depending on length/ severity of ride. I also keep my food, extra clothes, goggles, etc. in the backpack. I wear a fanny pack for all my tools- full set. I keep the strap tight and never know it's there. One thing to watch with the fender packs is that they can fall off in the middle of a ride and you may, or may not, notice you've lost them.

i think i'm going to start riding with you. then i won't have to bring anything.

i normally carry water and a full tool set in my camelbak, but i'm thinking i should be carrying some emergency supplies - like matches and an emergency blanket too.
