I just carry a small leatherman multi tool because when it folds down, there's no knobs or pointy things sticking out. The phillips head is close enough in size to all my binding bolts to make emergency repairs and the pliers and knife come in handy.Stuff in those pockets really hurt to fall on.

I carry the same one, very happy with its ease of use, not sharp protruding edges and havent had any issues with it causing more damage in a crash, for on slope repairs i think its a good cheap investmentI carry this with me. I think I paid like $6 for it on clearance at Zumiez or some shit like that. I like that it is a T handle, so it can be used with gloves on when it's stupid cold and you can still get great torque on it. I also like how the handle is hollow so it holds all of the attachments.
However, since I ride Flux bindigs now, all I really need is a screwdriver that fits the screws that secure the bindings to the board. All of the adjustments to the bindings are tooless.
However, I still carry the Dakine because of the T handle. That's crucial to really get that torque to secure those bindings. That's why I don't like a Leatherman for that job. You just can't get the torque you need from a Leatherman. But, it beats nothing. If your bindings get loose, it'll get you to a tool bench.
I ride with a back pack now... I carry a torque tool and extra screws.
The back pack is surprising unnoticeable and makes life much easier.... I have a camel pak in it and I also carry spare goggles, gloves, and food in it. And that's just for in bounds riding.
