ATV tire repair kits are one of those things you don't want to leave home without. There's nothing much worse than finding yourself in the middle of nowhere with a flat ATV tire and no way to fix it.

There are many kits on the market but these items should be common to all. The style of repair plugs and type of inflation (CO2 or hand pump) may vary. More expensive kits may even include some sort of ATV tire sealant and an electric air compressor.
If you have the extra room to carry one of these larger kits, that's great, but don't think that it's necessary. We like to carry a basic kit that can be stored somewhere on the ATV so that it's always there when you need it.

There isn't a specific brand name that we recommend over another. Just make sure the kit you get has the basic items included that we listed above. Some kits come packaged in a can, others in soft pouches or hard cases. We would make that choice based on how and where we planned to store the kit.
An ATV tire sealant is a good first line of defense. That will allow you to keep going with smaller punctures, and makes tire repair easier when a plug is necessary. But a sealant is not a substitute for an actual tire repair kit.
