Type of bag to carry tools that fits in jersey pocket?

I can't use a saddle bag because my thighs hit it with every pedal stroke, and I've tried many different shapes and sized. I carry spare tube, Muti tool, tire levers in a zip lock bag in my jersey pocket.

I'm looking for a better tool bag to replace ziplock bag, something that will last. needs to fit tube, couple Allen wrenches, tire lever, dynaplug kit and mini pump and also fit in jersey pocket.

what do you use?

I use a Yellowline Rule roll-up under my saddle but they also sell a really nice leather jersey case. I love my roll-up so much I bought a second one.

Back in the day many riders, myself included, used an old gym sock.

I know OP indicated he/she had tried a saddle bag without success,
hard to see why a seat pack like a Timbuktu2. Bike seat pack would not work?
a medium size one will fit a tube, tool, levers, etc.
have two of them, they work great.

how many tools & how large are they all? I read what is listed, but the most I see in large size is a tube, everything else is small. a saddle bag should ideally work.

I have my tools in a roll up pouch that is strapped lengthwise to the rails of my seat with an old toe strap. While not elegant, it does solve the thigh clearance problem.

I have a Miles Wide Sticky Pod I got last year and it seems to be doing quite well. The zipper pull is not the best but the bag does its job. I generally don't use it for my jersey pocket unless I am riding fixed and don't have a saddle bag attachment on that particular bike but it is my throw in a bag so I have a tube and tools pouch and it is excellent.

Cool, it looks like the Large one would fit a mini pump in addition to everything else. It would look a lot tidier than what I didn't want to admit: A rolled up cloth bag made from old blue jean leg. My spouse uses an old zippered pencil case.

In the mode of being eco-conscious, I suppose these are inline with what you're looking for, and bike-related:

Silca have a range of very pretty bags with silly names and equally silly price tags, if you're feeling overburdened with cash

I looked at sticky pods, but decided to go with lezyne caddy sack because it is water resistant which its important because of sweat and the occasional rain. I ordered a small but will asses whether its large enough when it arrives.
