What carry on tools for the trail?

I’m curious what tools and other supplies you guys take with you on the trail for emergency breakdown purposes? Things like a short list of specific hand tools and such like that is what I’m after.....along with anything else you want to mention. I’m putting together a ‘trail bag’

The funniest thing I have is a flare gun that has been in there for years...I guess I watched too many movies. Same with the bear spray but I have used that....
