Small frame bag?

Does anyone use a small frame bag on their bike?
Something that's just big enough to carry a few things that won't fit under the rear seat and means you don't have to attach full sized luggage. For me that'd be a puncture repair kit, visor wash etc.

Long shot, but if you have Heed crash bars they do offer bags to attach?

Thanks. I don't have crash bars and was just thinking of something smaller than that to attach to the trellis. I saw a pic of an old Superlight with one on it that looks discreet but just about big enough to be useful.

    Good call. I will look into those. Thanks.

    I had been thinking about a Kriega tail pack system for commuting, but that was per-Covid so not such priority now as I am mainly just using the bike for fun.

    I have had Kriega luggage before and found getting a good fit to be a bit of a pain depending on your rear seat shape. On the MTS though they would probably sit nicely on the rear grab rack rather than the rear seat.
