    I've seen people doing minimalist saddle bags with X-Pack or Cuben-Fiber material, they're ok if you're on the hunt for the last gram, but they won't last long if regularly used.
    I build x-pac handlebar bags. It has many positive qualities, but it and cuben fiber are not abrasion resistant. Cordura or ballistic nylon in areas that fret on other things is required or one will wear a hole pretty quickly.

    That said, those cute little bags won't hold even a 19mm tubular. My oldest tubular bag, a Jandd, is still in continuous use well past it's silver anniversary. They're still in production, too.... Before then I just wrapped my tire in a sock and strapped it to the saddle. I have broken down and started carrying a tire lever and sealant in my old age—I glue better, my hands are weaker, and an ounce of sealant seals most punctures without pulling the tire.

    The Blackburn Barrier micro seat bag is quite nice. Does what it should on my road bike.

    I'm not a fan of tubular bags, they're always way too big. Besides, I only carry a spare tub -in my jersey- if they're really long rides far away from resupply, on normal rides the little bottle of sealant will suffice.
    What is carried on the saddle is prone to get spray from the road -welcome to British weather!- so you don't want something like a sock that will absorb water and keep it there. In such case, I'd just recycle an HD plastic bag of suitable size (i.e. Sram cable kits come in useful bags, thicker than usual) or you can make your own/recycle with the ones from the kitchen's vacuum-seal.

    I think I have what I need. I found two ripstop coin bags on ETSY. I was able to put tubo 29er tube, 2 CO2, spur multitool, wolftooth chain plier/tire lever/master link, co2 chuck, dynaplug all under the saddle.

    Looking good! But FWIW... I’m loving this spurcycle bag. I have two CO2 cartridges, a co2 chuck, 1 large 35mm tube, tire irons, dynaplug, and a multi tool. And it takes up waaay less room than my old silca bag to boot!

    Plus there’s room for expansion too if I need to haul more junk!

    I do too like the spur bag. However it was too big for this project.
