swiss army pump

When space, and weight are at an absolute premium, it goes without saying that you should only bring what you need, and not much more.
For Bikepacking, and Cycle touring, I devised this easy method for bringing some emergency electrical tape.
Sure, I’ve got like a million different ways to attach things, fix things, tie things down, etc. but there are some times whan a little good old fashioned sticky tape just works best. Using a large carabiner to dispense the tape works absolutely perfect, and keeps things neat. The pump is a Blackburn Airstik SL.

If you are Backpacking or hiking, just swap the pump
for a Bic lighter, and have that be your 2-in-one space-saving-doo-dad.

Think smart. Don’t bring more than enough.
