Tool Roll

Can anyone recommend a functional tool roll? I keep this in my backpack while riding around. It should fit a mini pump, 15mm wrench, tire levelers, extra tube, and multi-tool.

I was looking for below:

Any experiences with that?

I have one of those Osprey tool rolls; it came with my Osprey Raptor hydration pack. It works pretty well, but the zippered pockets are a little small. Search on Etsy for "bicycle tool roll" and you'll see other options. I bought a nice waxed canvas one there a few years ago.

Oh yes! That's a great idea.

Like Rolla I've got one on the bottom of my Raptor pack. I like it but I rarely separate it from the pack

Being the notorious tightwad that I am, I've made a number of tool pouches by taking a worn out pair of jeans, cutting off the leg just below the knee, and sewing it shut. These are basically free, but quite durable. I use them for my bike, but also to stash a few tools in my car, my music bag, and so forth.

I bought one from this person recently and was pleasantly surprised at the high quality. I bought two belts from her years ago and they are nicely made as well. They offer many color and size options too. Hand-made by a cyclist in Moab:
