Don't hit the trail without one
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Large enough to inflate a car tire but small enough to fit in your bike bag. They seem large but are actually not too bad to carry around.
WAIT HAS REMOVEABLE VALVE CORE!!!!

Gotta have or it could be a long "walk"
Trail Bag Must Have
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Grabbed a couple to put in my trail bag in case my Santa Cruz Hightower gets a pesky pop.
Pretty beefy and thick, but that's expected from a plus size tube.
I've actually just been carrying 29er tubes for my 2.75" tires. But these work well if you have 3.0" tires.
Plus size tubes!!
Recently switched over to the fat(ish) side? Grab some of these as a backup for when the tubeless goes south.
A bit heavy, but not necessarily bad
I always keep a tube on my bike in case of a flat. These tubes are a bit thicker/heavier than the tubes that came with the bike, so it doesn't pack down as small. That being said I think the heavier tubes do a better job of resisting punctures so it's not necessarily bad. If you are looking for the lightest option or something that packs up very small you may want to check out one of the lightweight options such as item VIT002L.
