The little Topeak Rescue Box offers the best patch, at the best price, in a natty bombproof package that’s exactly fit for purpose. For my money, it’s the favourite choice. If you need some quality levers too, then the Lezyne gets a nod for a well thought-out all-in-one idea. I have to take a moment to recommend the delightful Meqix set. It’s pricey, yes, but the levers and tin are worth that alone, and it came with the best cheese-grater and top-notch patches.

In terms of longevity, you’ll make your money back eventually, and replacement patches are available for only a few pounds. Park Tool takes the biscuit in the budget stakes – for three pounds, you get a tiny, almost weightless package and six brilliant glue-free patches. Buy this if you don’t need the longevity of the Topeak, and you’ve already got your own levers.
