Someone a while ago posted a great tubeless emergency kit for out on the trail. Was it @spotter ?
Had a couple days fully loaded offroad bikepacking round Exmoor (report to come) and we both put non sealing holes in our tyres due to smashing into rocks at high speed. (mine was a misjudged bunny hop over a drainage gully...BANG!) Had inner tubes so no big drama but would have been nice to patch and go without wrestling rim from tyre, pissing sealant everywhere and then being back to the worry of non tubeless riding.
So, I need to sort out a trailside repair kit and also work out how these repair kits actually work and what they can and cant fix.

And is the curved needle and thread for literally sewing your tyre back together again?
