For whatever reason, 700x28 seems to be the unloved stepchild of the tube world-- most of the tubes out there are annoyingly "700x25-32" or "700x28-35." Well, I don't like having to cram a tube into a tire because it was designed to also fit a tire 20-25% larger.

Luckily, your tire is likely to mount to 29 or 30 wide on a 19c wheel, so something like the Continental 700x25-32 should work well enough. I think Kenda makes a 25-32 as well, but I've no experience with them. I've used Conti tubes. They're round, they hold air.

Plugs are great-- I carry Dynaplugs on one bike-- but I carry a tube as well, because sometimes it's a slash and not a jab. I've only had to use Dynaplug once, but I've had to use a tube to get home (accompanied by a boot) a handful of times.

Also, compared to Dynaplug tubes are really cheap.
