Size of tail pack for tools and tubes

I am looking at the Kriega dry bags as I want to get a bag that will be able to carry some tools and tubes for day trips. In the bag I plan to store the following.

2 tubes
Tyre irons
Motopressor air compressor
Tool roll of tools
Bolts pack
And a few other small bit and pieces just in case

What size would be just big enough for these? I don't want anything big with too much extra space as want to be able to just strap this on each time I go out. For longer trip I plan to get some more Kriega bags to which this could then be attached.

Any pointers would be great, and photos even better.

The Kriega 10 liter is whatís Iím using & works perfect for front & rear tubes plus tire irons & air pump with room for more items if needed. 👍👍💯💯💯

All of that plus a bit more minus the air compressor will fit under the seat front and back.
I also have the no pinch tool and glues, tape, zip ties and lock wire etc all under the seat.
Just leaves you with the air compressor to find a home for.

Nice - had not thought of the under seat storage. Doh.

me too, I forgot about the underseat space. I have now got a bit of stuff in there
I have the ATAS and so far have been riding with panniers on but only 10% full for days out. So I would like to keep the panniers for trips away and go for a day trip tail pack. I too fancy the Kriega US drypack at 10 litres. They look really well designed. The ATAS rack looks tiny though and it looks like the pack would have to sit partially on the rear seat unless a plate was used. Has anyone fitted one of these Kriega packs to the ATAS and can comment on fitting ?
