first aid kit with gloves.
spare gloves, socks and jacket,
cake and drink.
About £4 in change
100 zip ties (never know when it may snow atm)

2 x tubes
2 x tyre levers
1 x alien tool
1 x buff

3 x gels
Well that's on a usual weekend ride.
2 litre Bladder (although tube froze last night)
2 multi tools.
spare chain links
snickers bar (other chocolate bars are also available)
anti sceptic wipes
......weighs a ton.
Well then let's count em'
Handwarmers (the shake and break type) simple things and easy to use, used to use these racing Yachts when it turned chilly..these really help if you have to fix something or mend a sodding puncture.
2 spare tubes, saves time arsing around mending punctures.
Park multi tool thingumybobs, that I've yet to use in anger.
2 bars (though these have been in since July so I'm asking for hardened teeth breaking solidity)
4 air canisters and the valve thingy.
1 tyre lever.
1 puncture repair kit with about 15 patches and 2 glues.
And a Waitrose plastic bag for it all to go in, then placed in the middle pack of my camelbak.
Usual summer stuff+
Winter gloves (spare)
Winter hat (spare)
Windproof jacket (or big waterproof if it looks like rain).
Down-a-like gillet (for when stopped, and/or cruising back to the house/car)
Couple of those little emergency LED lights.
Bit of food (Powerbar - flapjack).
Thin woolly hat.
Tools & tubes in seatpack.
Different tyres to change to when the terrain changes on my rides.
As above, plus emergency union jack.
Pump, tube, patches, tyre levers, mini tool, chain links, mech hanger, cable ties, banana or malt loaf and up to 3 litres of water depending on length of ride.
Ummmmmmm a lot!
Howies Softshell or Proper Waterproof (what ever isn't in the pack is on my back.)
Dirt Rag Beanie
2x spare tubes
Tiny little minimalist Topeak Multitool
HT2 end cap tool thing (the round plastic one)
chainlinks and sram powerlinks
few random bolts and bis (eg cleats, cleat bolts and crank bolts)
Couple of emergency cereal/energy bars
Food for the ride
emergency blinky lights
Minimalist 1st aid kit (bandages and wipes basically)
Besides the stuff I carry year round, usually there are chemical hand and foot wamers and spare gloves and socks - crap circulation so get cold very quickly if my hands or feet are cold. I have a Haglofs synthetic down vest that packs fairly small too thats perfect for winter as an extra layer.
for commuting my camelbak havoc usually contains:
3 litre bladder
4 multitools...i need 2 of them just so i can remove the 20mm front axle
park tyre patches
2 spare tubes
pack of zip ties
spare power links
spare disc pads
spare gear cable
few other random spare tools and spare bolts
if i'm off for a dirty off road ride i always add:
first aid kit
wire saw??...just in case i need to rebuild that fence i've just smashed through
2 taped-in-a-ball bags of coins and an aerobics weight - about 4kg of useless weight for training prep / psychological BS
Usual stuff - Toolkit/Food/Spare tube + UST fixit kit inc gas/Pump/Phone/Windproof-shower resist jkt/Lights
Plus this weekend, a down gillet and a synthetic jacket, 2 tenners emergency fund (double food / train-bail fund) and a break-n-shake hand / foot warmer.
