Need recommendations for tubeless repair kits. What should I carry with me?

Because nobody has replied, I carry a small high volume pump with 2 tubes in my camel back. Even though I run tubeless, if a tubeless failure occurs I just install a tube to finish the ride and do a proper repair when I get home. Usually the repair is a new tire. Don't think I have ever had a flat with east coast riding unless an obstacle was hit with too low tire pressure breaking the tire bead seal.

Thanks, that sounds like a smart idea.

Same. Usually if a tubeless failure occurs it's pretty bad so a spare tube is the best I've found as well.

You can also make a tire boot out of 4-5 layers of duct tape to put inside the tire before you put the new tube in. Usually when you flat on a tubeless tire, it's because you tore the tire. The boot protects the tube since that part of the tire has been compromised
