I used a Zeus holder for a long while but went back to the middle jersey
pocket.

Both that Jandd and the similar Tufo bag are ubiquitous wherever
tubulars are found.

That is not the smallest.
The smallest is 16 gram and 5 by 12 by 60 mm.
No screwdriver.

I've used the Jandd bag mentioned here for about 20 years. Even after
the advent of clinchers <g>.

Two tubies will fit, along with tools that go in the zippered side
pockets. Point being, one tubular fits pretty easily.

The advantage to this kind of carry is the tire is a lot less likely
to be damaged by rubbing on the seat or attaching strap/whatever. The
Jandd bag has a good strap arrangement that is adjustable to give a
non-flopping fit for a given load, and is very easy to put on and take
off the bike. You can leave the tire compartment alone if you want to
use the side pockets for small items. The zippered main compartment
(not drawstring) keeps little things in, if you use it for other stuff
besides tires.

Not a wedge design, doesn't get in the way even if stuffed full.

The bag can rub paint around the seatpost binder bolt, and the
seatpost strap (velcro) will leave light marks on the seatpost in
time. Tradeoff for having a bag that doesn't wag around, and stays on
the bike no matter what. --D-y
