The Spitfire is La Sportiva's lightest race pack, a slightly slimmed version of the Stratos pack. Made of lightweight durable rip stop fabric, the Spitfire pack has an easy-access ski carry system built into the left side. Simply slide the tails of your skis through the side loop┬╣ and attach the tips using the retractable webbing on your opposite shoulder. The resulting vertical alignment will keep the skis away from your feet so you don't trip while you're booting. Perfectly optimized for racing by La Sportiva, the Spitfre pack also makes a great day pack for light and fast tours.

  • Inner pockets are designed to hold a probe and a shovel or water sleeve.
  • Velcro pockets on each side of the hip belt are perfect for stashing gels, inclometers, and other essentials.
  • Fleece-lined side pocket with zipper is good for an extra layer or water bottle, which you can grab on the go.
  • Ice axe loop and bungee cord on the back holds a 50cm ice axe (needs a longer bungee for longer axes).
  • Adjustable chest strap can be moved up or down to help get the right fit.
  • Durable rip-stop nylon is light enough to save your energy for the descent.

Note┬╣: The ski carry loop fits skis with tails up to ~105mm wide. The RSTs (106mm) can squeeze in with some effort.

Question from katie
 
I have a small frame, weighing 110 and 5'2"
Would you recommend a smaller pack or a pack that comes in 2 sizes?
This is for rando racing with ski carry

Hi Katie, all the race packs are relatively small and would fit you. The packs that come in 2 sizes don't have adjustable shoulder straps so need the sizing.
