Thankfully I've been lucky with punctures but as my bike sessions start to get longer (started at 5, 10, currently at 20km), I fear being stranded. Of course I have extra tubes in my bag but for some peace of mind. Or is getting tires with features like extra layers puncture proof material a better buy?
I am specifically looking at Mr Tuffy liners.
Quality tires does make a difference, I used to get flats all the time, turns out if was because of the crappy Conti Ultra Sport I was using (from MEC), since I switched to Vittoria Rubino Pro, no more
Tubes also somewhat makes a difference, don't go with the cheapest ones, the MEC branded tubes are total junk.
The generic ones from Norco/Lambert for roughly the same price are much better quality.
Can't remember the manufacturers, will try to look it up
