What do you keep in your pack?




My day pack:

1. 70oz bladder (Have not had a problem with running out of water. Longest outing has been 6hrs).
2. Cloth to keep the goggles clean.
3. Napkins (Just incase nature calls!):lol:
4. Zip ties and tie wire.
5. Multi tool and leatherman for minor repairs.
6. Tow rope. Came in handy a few times. :thumb:
7. Flashlight and lighter for emergencies.
8. Map of area.

I have a spare tube but have not bought the spoons to do the road side repairs yet. So the tube stays at home.

What do you keep in your pack that you can't do without or is a must on the trails?
 
I have a very small pack at this time but usaly bring water my smokes and my phone oh and a map of the place i'm riding if i have one. I know i need to bring more and will as i start doing longer rides, i also want to get a little bag that goes on your fender so i don't have to carry so much on my back.:thumb:
 
:popcorn:

Great thread.:thumb: This should be a good one. Are you limiting it to the pack or all carrying devices on said rider or bike? Some of the DBAers on here have 100lbs worth of backpacks, fanny packs and fender packs (front and rear) for carrying stuff.

On a decent ride with my Bro, there are times when we are over 100 miles from the truck. :naughty:

I couldn't hike 5 miles in my MX boots. Let alone 30-100. The ARSENAL is REQUIRED on longer trips. (except baldy mesa:smirk:, I'd ride naked there)
I carry a similar arsenal minus the chain pieces. I will add a piece of chain and breaker to my gear. :thumb:

Whats the REALITY of co2 inflation kits? I carry one with 6 co2s but have never used it. Does it need 4-5 cartridges for a rear tire? Worth the $15+$2 per cartridge? (Not walking is worth $50 to me)

Will post picture and list soon enough... -BIG DAN:thumb:

Last outing I had a front flat (RR report from Rack has pictures of the trail side change) and I only used 1 cartridge to get 15psi. Not sure what the back would take, but I would not think it would be 4 - 5. Maybe 2.

I was thinking any pack or device that riders are carrying. This i thought could be useful for some of us to see what might be missing in our packs or something we might want to start carrying.
 
I dont carry a pack, but when my buddies do, usually some tape, cell phone, knives, some allen wrenches, and a huge dildo to keep the bears away cuz bears hate huge dildos.
 
Like Timoyz I carry enough stuff to kill a small farm animal. I'd pull it all out and take pics but it is packed and I'm leaving to go riding all weekend.

24mm Axle nut tire spoon
12/13mm Axle nut tire spoon
Valve core remover
spare front ultra heavy tube
visine bottle full of liquid soap
small baby powder
Leatherman multi-tool
Co2 cartriges x6
Co2 dispenser
zip-ties
bailing wire
duct tape
headband flashlight
regular flashlight
Pocket knife
super glue
patch kit
extra 20 amp fuses
Allen wrenches 1.5mm-7mm

sharpie
maps
70 oz. camel pack ( have gone through three full ones on one ride before )
Lighter and magnezium block

alcohol wipes and dry cloth for goggles
6 jumbo Vicatins (in case I or someone else has a major injury and needs to take the edge off)
surgical gloves 2 sets
2' of spare wire for wiring issues or emergencies
can of tuna (even if you have wet wood you can eat the tuna then fill can with gas and light it below a pile of sticks and such. This will create fire and get some coals going to cook or keep you warm in an emergency
space blanket
poncho
safety briefing supplies
S & W .45 with two full clips (spring and fall only)
Water purification tablets (for filling camel pack in streams when you run out)

That is about all. I know I am forgetting something but this should give you a good idea.
The reason I carry so much is I have a dual sport and usually ride from home alone and end up 60-80 miles from home in the middle of nowhere. If I were to break down I might not see another human for weeks. It is important to have all these items under those circumstances. :thumb:
