Put all your tools in the keg, and use the water bottle mount. Put your water in a backpack.....oh wait....
I second this.
I put tools etc into three categories luxury, what you need and what you might be able to get away with.
What you might be able to get away with is IMO: plugs and a CO2
What you need: Tube, pump, multi-tool (you can often get away with a CO2 only but sometimes you find a second problem after you "blow your load." You can almost always get home by putting a tube in it where as plugs are less certain)
Luxury: I consider CO2 a luxury.
I have two setups.
1) Unfortunately my Evil doesn't have a bottle cage so I carry a camel bak. I put in a small EDC pump with the EDC kit in it. I have a great saddle bag made by a guy on Vancouver Island (Farsik). He doesn't have the one I like on his site anymore but it is like a little courier bag on my saddle. Holds a tube, CO2 and some plugs.
2) My Honzo has a long EDC pump with the EDC tool and plugs/pliers inside. I also have a farsik seat bag on this one with a tube and co2 inside.
With either of these set ups, I never get stuck in the woods.
