Spare tubes?

I am looking to buy a few back up inner tubes to carry with me while riding. I was searching and could not find any with decent reviews. Does anyone have any recommendations?
My tires are 26x4

Thanks in advance for any recommendations

Continental and Maxxis make 26 X 4 tubes. Both reputable companies

Schwalbe makes fat bike tubes, and if Surly's own fat bike tubes aren't good, I'd be highly surprised.

Did you have trouble finding tubes with certain ratings, or did you not bother searching at all?

I found the mongoose, surly ,maxxis, Kenda and continental ones but since I have never had a fat bike till now the reviews on Amazon were touch and go. So I came here to see what everyone else was using or recommended. Also saw a bunch of Chinese made ones that were hit or miss.

My fat bike came with cheap chinese tires and tubes, and had a flat on almost every outing. I switched to Surly tires and continental tubes, and have not had a puncture yet

I'm a big fan of Surly Fat Bike Ultra Light 26 Inch Tube https://www.biketiresdirect.com/prod...t-26-inch-tube

I roll 1,000 to 2,000 miles per year on my Pugsley, these tubes have been great!
