And if you are carrying an air mattress a repair kit for that. I had my new ThermaRest Neo air mattress spring a leak (probably my fault) and it was flat -flat. But buried in the bottom of the carry bag was a repair kit and 30 minutes later I was back to sleep.
I would add in
Dental Floss - it's really strong and can be used to tie all sorts of things together, even use it to suture.
Small tube of shoe goop - I had the sole of my boot nearly fall off at Evolution lake and I used every spare piece of Duct tape that I could beg, borrow or steal to hold it together until I could hobble out at South Lake.
A spare main buckle - If that breaks you have a problem. Most backpacks with a separate top compartment have a spare buckle in that compartment so that you can use it as a fanny pack. This buckle by design is usually the same size as the main backpack buckle. Many light packs do not have a separate compartment and therefore do not have a spare main buckle.
