+1 Once I removed the plastic covers from the Slime compressor there is now room in the zipper case for a can of patch glue with a brush (the glue tubes always dry out), patches, the snake mentioned above, and the patch rougher/roller tool. I also carry front and back tubes, tire irons and a plethora of other stuff. Much like carrying rain gear, having stuff along to fix things significantly reduces the need for these things. i.e.: It then seems to seldom rain and flats are fewer and farther between.
