Don't bother with anything other than a super lightweight bivi bag, which must have a bug net.
I don't intend to ever use a saddle bag again- they seriously mess up your pedal stroke when you're out of the saddle.
Those chalk bag things are excellent- I stored another bidon in mine.
Really? Thanks to my saddle issues I spent WAAAAY more time out of the saddle than normal and the Viscacha was fine and dandy. Without a saddle bag I'm limiting my goods storage area a lot - I carried a spare GPS, down jacket, rain jacket and tools in it during TCR, plus anything else I wasn't wearing at the time.
I've seen some bug bivvys but they are as heavy as my normal bivvy! And they're fucked in the cold or the rain...
