A rather complete lightweight day pack from Mammut. The Spindrift is an ultralight backpack for ski touring that has a number of race-inspired features. The ski attachment system can be operated without removing the pack, and the separate side compartment provides quick access for crampons, hydration, or a backup layer. Mammut added a couple nice twists, such as removable back-padding that can be used as a moisture-blocking cushion. Also there is a zipper compression system that lets you shrink the pack for short days and enlarge it for longer ones, with or without rope. The Spindrift 25 is a solid ski touring pack that shows off Swiss attention to detail.
