Accessory Bag

Looking for recommendations for a good bag for a jersey pocket that would fit a spare tube, CO2 inflater, spare CO2, multi-tool, and a couple tire levers.

Maybe even my phone? Note 5

I have all of that in a seat bag currently, but this year I'll be doing a lot of group rides after work which will require me leaving my bike on the (locked) roof rack during the work day. I don't want to leave anything on the bike that is easily removed and I think it would just be easier to have something to toss in my jersey pocket than to remove/replace the seat bag.

Also, rule #31 ...

I use the arundel saddle bag, because it's small and aero. For what you need, it would also be great in a jersey pocket, as it's only as wide as a folded up tube. Maybe 1.5"-2" total.

Perhaps just a saddle bag with a QR? I'm using the Lezyne M-Caddy QR because it's small enough, holds all my stuff (has dedicated sleeve/pockets to fit CO2, levers, multi-tool, and money,) doesn't look awful (relatively) and removes easily.

I have no suggestions for a pocket bag but I have to say my small Topeak bag can be installed and removed in 30 seconds or less. It's the kind with straps.

Topeak has QR bags.

Didn't purchase from them, not even the same model, but you get the idea.

The large can fit my whole wallet, phone, lights, repair kit (including tube)... probably even a stray kitten it's so big. A Med should do the job for you. Just make sure you have about 1.5cm clearance on the backside of your rails for the QR adaptor.

I don't know anything about jersey bags, but like others above, have a Topeak QR bag and like it.

Okay, so I never got around to reading any posts in this thread until now, but I was wandering around Target with my wife and in the luggage area I found a two pack of one larger and one smaller rectangular zippered bags. It was $9.99 so I grabbed it. Both fit in a jersey pocket, but I used the smaller of the two and it fit everything from my seat bag easily. I took it out on a gravel ride on Sunday and I had a mechanical so I got to take it out and actually use it. I gotta say I found it handier than pulling items from a seat bag.
