Anyone having a tip of a slim back pack?
10L would be enough.
I noted Rapha Pro Team is out, is it the best option?

10L is small. Depending on what exactly you want to stuff in it, and what you want to use it for, have you looked at USWE? They are phenomenal for small loads while on a MTB. Some of their packs are smaller than that too.

Tools, spare tire, portable compressor and possibly skinners. No hydration pack!

No idea how bulky a 'portable compressor' would be in a backpack, but for comparison, I can fit [g-form kneepads, a vest/lightweight jacket, gloves, iPhone, cliff bar, multitool] -OR- [a 2L hydration bladder, iPhone, cliff bar], into a 2L USWE. They make 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10L, etc. so you could potentially get the exact size, no more/less than needed with that brand.
