    This looks like it would meet your specs, but I can't find any place that actually sells it.

    Bike saddlebag XP1 compact with inflation gear - Italia76

    If anyone finds these for sale,let me know.

    i'd use one of those shitty pouches those topeak mini tools come with and use the belt loop to attach it to the rails with a fat zip tie you can open and close.

    other wise- duct tape and a toe strap.

    This is what I’m sort of doing. I ordered some thick cuben fabric today and will sow a Velcro strap to it once I make it into a bag.

    Hyoost, the cleat for the Ortlieb Micro will stand the bag off the rails and away from the swollen head of your janky battery-powered radio frequency seatpost. Plus they’re really nice bags that are actually waterproof. I’ve had one for at least a decade.

    Houston, saddle bags are very uncool. Very tiny ones slightly less so.

    Little late here but I was thinking old tube+velcro+hot glue. For the "custom" bags you could even just strap it somewhere else on the bike.

    Fanny packs and jersey pockets both require remembering. I can make it outside and lock the door before remembering my shoes or helmet. That is for the stuff I need right away. I'd hate if I needed to fix a flat and not have the stuff because I didn't fill my pockets. I probably have done that but already forgotten it. All my bikes have a bag of some sort on them.

    Truly, spares should be carried by a domestique, or in the team car.
    Domestiques can easily be spotted by their characteristic Zefal frame pumps.

    Hot glue OK for prototyping, but you need to stitch this stuff so that it doesn't pop later.

    I've got an old tube bag with a stitched-on cinch strap, like ~ 20 yrs old, and it's great.

    I've tried almost all seat bags and tool wraps and have never been happy with them. There's always something that bugs me about them and each option has it plusses and minuses. The seat bags are nice, but it can be a real pain to get at what you need and then you often have to repack them once you're ready to ride. Tool wraps and the various ways they attach are nice to use, but they have to be completely removed from the bike when you need something and then refolded and put back on when it's time to go. Last year, thanks to Instagram, I stumbled on the Possum by Outvi. It absolutely rocks. Functions much like a tool wrap, but stays attached to the bike when I'm fixing something. Just a couple of pulls on some velcro and I have all my repair items laid out before me and up and out of the dirt. Very adaptable to what I want to carry and has been rock solid and bombproof. No rattles, so slips, nada. I can't say enough good things about them. Outvi Home of The Possm MTB Biking Cycling

    They can get so tiny they're hard to find.
