XLAB Mini Bag
The Mini Bag from Xlab-USA is a deceptively compact saddle bag made from durable woven nylon. It can easily fit a tube, two tire levers, a CO2 inflator, patch kit, and two CO2 cartridges.
Alternatively, it could store essential personal items like a cell phone, cash and cards, keys, etc. It's simple design makes it easy to switch between bikes. The extended front strap allows it to fit around aero seat posts. Xlab-USA designed the Mini Bag to be compatible with other Xlab-USA products; it fits nicely inside their Super Wing and Carbon Wing (not included). With the use of XLAB's X-straps (not included), the Mini Bag attaches to XLAB's Turbo Wing, Carbon Sonic, Sonic Wing, and Mini Wing System (not included).

Bag Capacity: 50 or less ci
Bag Type: Saddle
Small - Black
Mfg PartNum: 1315
SIZE: Just right. I can fit 3 CO2 canisters, a tire lever, the CO2 head, and, most importantly a 25mm 700c tube. It's a snug fit, but, all these things fit. And, I can cinch it up very tight under the saddle using the 3 velcro straps. My prior bag (Topeak Aero Wedge Pack - Strap MediumO which BTD recommended, was big enough for everything, but, was too big and too wide and ended up rubbing a hole in a pair of my bib tights (inner thigh).
This is my 4th or 5th or maybe 6th saddle bag. Is it waterproof? Nope. Your stuff will get wet. But, I had "waterproof" bags in the past. They aren't. The zipper on the "waterproof" bag was incredibly finicky and I almost always had to take the bag off just to open the zipper, at least until the zipper failed entirely after only one season of very light use and relatively minimal wet days (here in CA). So, I'm trading waterproof for what appears to be a much more durable zipper.
FIT: 3 velcro straps which you'll likely have to cut (they're extra long to allow for fit) after install. I can cinch this bag up very high and tight under my saddle. It's out of the way, and doesn't;t rub against my legs.
