Dirt Bike Tool Pack

I have searched and searched and still not really found the answer to my question...

I am looking for a dirt bike fanny pack/bumbag/tool bag and tools to fill it.

Not looking to carry the kitchen sink, just enough to get out of the woods to safety if something happens.

For tools I may just go with these (and add to as required): https://securewschent01.websitecompl...od.asp?prod=38

Any other suggestions ?

My biggest issue is what to carry it all in. I found this:

Anybody have any experience with this bag or any other suggestions.

Cheers...

I remembered seeing this on another forum..

Looks to be pretty complete, but I daresay you could put together your own kit for less $$.

That sure is a nice pack but it is a little pricey. It does, however give me a good idea as to what my tool pack should contain

I am looking more for a fanny pack type bag since I already have a camelback type backpack. My thought is to put basic tools into a fanny pack so I can carry (or store it) it while riding street AND dirt and put dirt only parts (patch kit, tire irons etc.) in my fender bag.

Why carry the tools?

Dirtbikegear.com has some nice fender packs made with nylon ballistic cloth.

For me, carrying tools on a fanny pack is just more weight to raise and lower as I sit and stand back and forth on my dirt bike. On a 75+ mile long off road ride it makes a difference at the end of the day.

Better to put them in a sturdy pack out of the way on the rear fender and off my waist.

they make great packs, but they need to be mounted on the bike. their top kit weighs about 20lbs way too much to carry in a fanny pack.

Looks like I might have to re-consider. I already have a rear fender bag so maybe I need a small tool roll I can put in there, so I can easily transfer the tools from bike to bike and mebbe get a front fender bag for the dirt bike specific stuff...

Thanks too all for your responses

I just carry the basics off-road. The tire tools and tube go on the front fender and the others go in my camelback. I carry a tiny socket wrench, even number metric sockets 8-14 and the same open wrenches. I also have small flat and philips drivers, a few allens, zip ties, and the stock axle wrench. All of this stuff fits into a tight bundle and is wrapped in velcro (or duct tape).
