Question tire repair kit

Planning my first long trip next year wanted input on what is the best / easiest tire fix tool kit out there for a nail.

Stop and Go plugger kit

I can say I have used it three times, one of those times I had no cell phone coverage, so for those that comment that they have a auto service, and would never plug a tire, you need to be really patient or in extremely good shape, as you have two choices, one hope someone will come along and stop and help you, or set out on foot hoping to get a cell connection or find someone to help.

Nothing like being in the middle of a swamp with 90'F weather and mosquito announcing Breakfast is Here, yup, the tire plugger never got back in its case, the up side was, a farmer with a pickup stopped by to ask if I needed help, "no but thanks for stopping, I really appreciate it "
Was out of there in 10 minutes Flat

I have a hand pump (0 loss for pumping up MC air shocks). The gauge indicates 60 psi and I have pumped the shocks up to 40 psi. Shock bladders are much smaller than a tire however. Any idea how long it would take to pump a tire up with one of these? Bicycle tire pumps take a few minutes to get a bicycle tire up to 90 psi.

A long time. Depends on what kind of shape you are in. Probably not more than an hour, including breaks.

I have the MiniPro and it is outstanding.
I am thinking the Airshot might be my Christmas present and throw the MiniPro in the car.

I also use a compact Slime pump. They do not last very long, the first one I had gave up with maybe an hour of run time. But I do like how compact it is, I just save it for on the road emergencies.

Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SiSF)

Me too - one for each V. Can't say for SURE how many times I've used them, but they fit under the seat, MOSTLY..., plus some of it in the saddle-bag.
