    I wax my windscreen and face shield since it works as a great water repellent when it’s raining. Just need to re-apply as I go.

    And no chain breaker…leaving that one to the places I get chain at.

      Ah, I see. You might consider Rain-X, in that case…it comes in small bottles and even small packets about the same size as a ketchup or mustard packet too, and lasts much much longer. Works great on shower curtains/glass too!

      If you are carrying a chain link(assume you mean master-link), a small, light Motion Pro chainbreaker/assembler may come in handy. Otherwise, the master link is gonna be difficult to install/uninstall in the right circumstance.

    Just curious – why carry Turtle Wax?

    Also, do you have a chain tool, to press master links apart/together?
