I've got a camelback for sale if you want it. And yes, it's a definite need! Great fit carrying a nail file or a spare pair of undies

Camel back is a must have
Heres a list of what most of us carry
Spare front tube ( front tube can be used on the rear tyre to get you out of trouble where as its hard to put a rear into the front )
Tyre levers and pump
Shifter or spanner that will fit axle nuts
8,10,12 mm spanners
Allen keys
Set of pliers
Some zip clips
Roll of race tape
And if you get a 2 stroke a couple of spare spark plugs
Packet of Allens Snakes

Most of it will fit in the camelback, if not, some of the hard core blokes wear bum bags to add to their feminine side

shane that soldering iron is 240v so you'll need a inverter to use it aswell.

never see many husky riders with a spare kit.
