whats a good wedgie bag?

i'm looking for a nice wedgie bag (is that what they're called?.. its the bag that fits underneath the seat) for my bike.

the LBS carries primarily Specialized stuff... they had their 'dirt bag', their 'wedgie bag' and their 'mini-wedgie bag'... the dirt bag seemed a bit too big, and the mini-wedgie seemed too small... im thinking the wedgie bag would have been alright (trying to remember... it was a couple weeks ago)... but, I'm thinking they only had it in this navy-blue color and i didnt like it... if they had a grey or black one, i'd possibly have bought it.

i want to be able to keep my mini-tool (when i buy one), some patches, plastic levers, a spare tube, my keys and my wallet in the bag.

what do you guys recommend? and any websites you suggest that i should order this 'bag' and a mini-tool from?

thanks,
-mike

Topeak make a good rance of wedge packs. I have the largest wedge, it'll fit my cell phone, lock, keys, wallet, multi tool, allen keys, levers, patches (probably a tube too if I had a spare) and maybe even a banana if you open the expansion zip. I think there are four or five sizes, from tiny (multi tool and a tube at most) to huge-ish (above). They're really good quality, have a loop on the back to clip a light too, and the larger ones have a mini-pump mount underneath. Try www.nashbar.com.

Pedro's makes a really nice bag made of recycles bicycle tires. Due to the rubber it is waterproof. In mine I fit 2 tubes, a multi tool, tires levers and have a little room left for a cell phone or wallet.
They are also pretty inexpensive.

Make sure it is expandable. IOW, it will have two zippers so it can nearly double in size. Also if you want to have a clip on blinkie make sure it has a loop for one on the back of it.

Other than that just look for one that holds the most stuff possible. You can never have too much room.
