How many of you carry a tire repair kit?

I'm curious as to how many people here carry a tire repair kit, what brand, and if you have had to use and how it worked out.

I carry the slime plug kit with compressor. Seems to work great. I've got a shinko thats had a plug for 3k miles.

If all you ever do is all you've ever done, then all you'll ever get is all you ever got.

A plug kit and Cyclepump are always on the bike.

Yes, I've had to use them a few times.

The cyclepump is by far the fastest and most reliable mini compressor I've owned.

A $5 plug kit from Walmart (I freakin' hate Walmart) and a $10 12V air pump. I have had the "opportunity" to use them several times, and have been glad to have them each of those times!

I carry a plug kit and a bicycle pump. Sometimes a DC electrical pump if space isn't an issue. If these don't fix the problem, it's time to call for help--that's why I carry insurance.

My off pavement riding is limited to good graded Forest Service roads. Anything more strenuous and I would want more repair equipment.
