Tools and stuff for back country riding

New to ATVing and by the end of the summer I'll probably be heading out into some remote mountain regions for some back country trail riding, and I'm wondering just what kind of stuff/tools etc I should bring along in case of breakdowns/events etc. Short list so far includes a GPS (probably a Garmin Montana 650T), a tire repair kit, and courtesy of my Mom one of those satellite personal locator beacons, probably the ResQLink+ from ACR.

Any other suggestions for stuff that might come in handy?

I am going to add a portable battery. I bought one for my truck. In addition to my winch, I also carry a comealong.

I think about changing my belt as a matter of mileage than breaking. Hopefully I do it before it breaks. I also think about adding a tire.

Chainsaws are nice too. So you don't have to turn around. I don't always carry one though. I have a bow saw, but not the same.

Big jug of water may be one of the most important things.
