The rear bottle hydration mount is a popular choice for its proven aerodynamics, but figuring out where to store your flat kit can take some creative problem solving. That’s why XLab designed this two-in-one Aero Pouch 300, which keeps airflow clean behind the rider. The designers even took flapping zippers into account—there is simply a Velcro pull-tab to open the bag. Although it’s deceivingly compact, the pouch can fit a tube, tire levers, two CO2 cartridges, a patch kit and an inflator. XLab also claims it can fit most foam sealants for those riding tubular tires.
Note: XLab recommends the Aero Pouch 300 be used with only metal-mount carriers.
