Recommendations for a Tire Plug Kit for Trips

Looking for recommendations for a tire plug kit and portable air pump for trips. Never really took any with me but I'm starting to get overly cautious with my older age.
Thanks

Just be sure you have a pair of dykes in your tool kit, to pull out the nail if it's still there.

I just bought a tire plug kit from Walmart for $7 from the "slime" company. Comes with a reamer and plug insert tool, a few plugs and a tire gauge in a compact plastic case about the size of an old VHS tape. The also have very compact 12v compressors too for under $20. The only thing I did was add a small pair of angle cutters so I could remove whatever was in the tire. The compressor is alitte slow but it works just fine

me too. funny thing, since I've bought this kit, I have never had a flat on my bike. now the riding mower, that is a different story

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Now that's funny!! You need to buy one and strap it to your mower.
