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 always keep a couple of road flares with me for starting a fire when everything is wet. A folding boat anchor can also be very useful if you get stuck with no trees nearby. Sometimes I bring a gortex bivy sack and a sleeping bag. I can compress them to about the size of a basketball. Some other things that I bring, but didn't see mentioned include parachute cord, hand and toe warmers, a life straw, and a waterproof boonie hat.
