tow ropes are big and bulky and super heavy when they get wet. instead i carry 15 foot of ractchet strap with the ratchet and hooks removed. rolls up super small and weighs next to nothing.
pin on compass pinned to the top side of your forearm on your jacket works awesome and you dont have to dig for it. been using it for 3 years and works perfect everytime. as you come to a stop at trail intersections a quick look at your arm and you know your direction.
i always carry a flash light, found a great option... it is a head lamp caled cyclops and sells for 10 bucks. they are led and water proof and shock proof. remove the headband strap and thro the light in your jacket pocket or pack. take up about as much space as a butterscotch and provides more light than a mini-mag.
if you carry extra oil on your sled or in a backpack and worry about the plastic container busting open (makes a huge mess in a tunnel bag) try this. get an aluminum fule bottle like the MSR or similar from rel or any outdoor store. they are crush proof light weight and basically bomb proof and actually more compact.
a tool that i always have in my pocket and carry one in my pack is a swisstech tool with pliers and 4 screwdrivers and is just a bit bigger than a quarter....i have used it on countless occations when sledding.

The XP is the most fun sled ever made - but I like my XR more.

I have also had the oil bottle opening up issue. Coke bottle has not let me down.
I take one and Duct Tape it 1st and use that as a open in case of emergency bottle.

The wire came in super hands when I lost the clip for my chain adjuster bolt! That would have ruined a day easy!
