I'm debating between the Mira and Sirrus...
I'm debating between the Mira and Sirrus packs as a gift for my wife. It's intended for day trips with the kids, whether to a theme park or the zoo. Has anyone compared them for similar use?
I was looking at both for leading trips with kids. Last year I had groups of 10 year old girls, and though they were multi-day canoe trips, I needed a daypack to keep with me in the boat for portages and easy access to the med-kit, layers, snacks, etc. I narrowed it down to this pack and here's why: when you're with kids, as you know, you need easy access to everything. For the larger Sirrus packs, the top loading just isn't practical for digging things out fast. I keep a med kit with me when I'm with the little ones, and I need to know I can get to it right away. The Mira also has more pockets. This allows for better organization for everything from maps to books and snacks for when the kids get tired and need a break. Extra layers are perfect for the stretch mesh front pocket. I try to keep a few extra rain jackets on me. Sometimes the parents of the kids I'm leading send their children out with ponchos thinking that that's acceptable for multi-day trips. For what you're doing, it sounds like you'll need organization. Though both are great packs, it'll be a huge time saver to go on day trips with the Mira. I'd pick the Sirrus for more ultralight backpacking type trips or for climbing where I can just throw a rack or two in a bag and go. Hope that helped!
