I roll my tools up in an old shop rag and tie it up.

Asahi Tools from Level Chrome LLC

Received the two wrenches from Level Chrome which shipped extremely fast!
The original "6 piece" set was back-ordered, so I changed my order to a stronger combination set, as opposed to all open end type.
Here is the set they are shipping on Monday, which I consider a better option for loosening rusty or stubborn bolts/nuts with the closed end;
http://www.levelchrome.com/Asahi-LCWS6-6-Piece-Lightool-Metric-Combination-Wrench-Set_p_299.html
They are not as light as the MoPro Titanium option which I also own, but they are considerably stronger being alloy steel (the Asahi). MoPro discourages routine use of their ti wrenches, and includes a torque limit sheet that does not bode well for aggressive application. Asahi is light weight AND strong... better bet for my use if I'm in a remote area, a broken wrench is worse than no wrench if I can't re-assemble the bike.
Ti wrenches for my day pack, Asahi steel light weight for remote wilderness treks.

Asahi wrench set

Just came upon this cheaper option. Thought I would throw it out there.

This. I actually use a piece of chamois, fold the ends over, roll it up and 2 strong rubber bands or inner tube strips. Fits snuggly in the tool compartment of the 990.

I ran across these storage bags at walmart a couple years ago. Yes, I carry a lot of repair stuff...and my buddies are usually the beneficiaries.






One buddy using my JB weld, one using my tools on Black Bear Pass.

Kuny's Socket and tool roll

I've been using the Kunny's Socket holder and tool roll for the past 4 seasons and it will hold most everything you'll need.
I do a lot of month - 3 month long tours and I can fit everything in here that I need to tear the bike down, except for an air compressor.
The socket pockets with velcro overflap holds the sockets in there securely and the two webbing straps with quality buckles allow you to keep it all rolled up tightly. Very durable!
