Osprey Sirrus 24 Women's Day Pack Review

I have been in need of a day pack for a while now but I just couldn’t find one that ticked most of the boxes.  My list of needs was relatively simple (or so I thought):

  • Slimline, light and comfortable (these go together for me!)
  • Just big enough (for a few essentials)
  • Durable
  • Stylish enough to double as a touring day pack.

However, I found that most of the ‘day packs’ were bulky, relatively heavy, not very comfortable (unless they contained a bit of weight to sit on your hips) and lets, face it, not very stylish!

As is usually the case for me, I gave up looking. And I then stumbled upon the Osprey Sirrus 24 Women’s Day Pack when it was on sale and decided I’d take the plunge.

This pack has lots of techy features including an internal hydration reservoir sleeve, lots of compartments, a tensioned mesh harness and an integrated raincover. While this back pack is a ‘one size fits all’ pack, it does have an adjustable back panel to suit your torso length.

It is made of durable materials which has withstood the bush bashing and rock scrambling I have experienced on my recent day hikes. This pack comes in four colours with the very stylish names of Ruska Purple, Thyme Green, Summit Blue or Black (they must have run out of creativity here!).  I of course opted for Ruska Purple given my only other sale option was Black.

The Sirrus also has a 36 litre and a 50 litre available in Extra Small/Small or Small/Medium however these to my thinking go beyond the needs of a day pack and don’t live up to the expectation of a multi-day pack. My guidance is go small with the Sirrus 24 litre or jump to the Osprey Exos 58 or Osprey Exos 48 for a light weight multi-day option.

For the guys out there, the Osprey Stratus 24, 34, 36 or 50 are options.

The suggested carrying capacity for the Sirrus 24 pack is 5-12kg. At the lower end of this weight the pack is very comfortable given the trampoline suspension.  However at the top end of this range the pack would be bulky and would feel overly heavy.

I am really enjoying my Sirrus 24 and in the short time since my purchase, I have used it a lot I I’m even ready to throw out a thread bare day pack I purchased 15 years ago! that must mean I am very happy and recommend the Sirrus 24 to those seeking a multi purpose and stylish day pack.

We Like

  • Seamless hipbelt which means there are no seams to feel
  • Ventilated tensioned mesh backpanel that adjusts to your torso length which ensures a customised fit
  • Integrated raincover which sits neatly in the lower compartment
  • Dual side compression straps for comfort
  • Dual side stretch mesh pockets which make it easy to stow and remove bottles
  • Zippered hipbelt pockets to keep your favourite snacks handy
  • Internal hydration reservoir sleeve if you favour using a hydration bladder
  • Dual-zippered panel access to main compartment
  • Large top panel zippered slash pocket which makes it easy to tuck away items quickly

We Don't Like

  • At $199.95 it is a bit expensive for a day pack so look out for sales or plan to give it a lot of use!

Best Uses

  • An excellent day pack
  • Enough flexibility to serve as an overnight pack
