Bike pack, chain and tool

Hi folks,

A couple of questions from a relative newbie:

1. See below/attached for a pic of the current 'pack' I have on my bike. It fits below the seat. I'm looking for a bigger pack and my strong preference is that it fit in the same spot. Any recommendations? If now, any other recs on a different way to carry more? I have some back issues and don't like the feeling of a backpack or putting things in the back of my bike jersey. Any links to a product would be great, Amazon is great but not strictly necessary.
(I'm not able to post links yet, for some reason, so trying it this way. Remove the W from the link below to see the picture.)

2. The second picture should show my bike lock. I had it mounted on my bike via the holder that it came with but recently added a second water bottle that displaced it. The spot I have it in, wrapped around the seat post is not great becasue it moves around (it made contact with the back tire at one point) or gets in the way of my riding. I would like to have a way to lock my bike up because I sometimes stop at a store for a water refill or other places. Any recs on what I can do? Willing to buy another product if necessary.

3. Any recs on a tool I can get for tire changing? I recently changed the tire on my sons bike (woohoo!) but used those plastic pieces (not sure what they are called) to get the tire off. One of them snapped so thinking a metal one would be good. Also curious what people carry with them in terms of changing a tire on the road (supposed something needed to inflate the tire) and that gets into the storage question too.

Thanks in advance for your help!
