This was a good entry level pack. The suspension was comfortable (no disconfort on long trips for me) and the pack was functional...
This is a very basic pack. I did not care for the organization on this pack. Getting things into and out of the Sirocco Classic was a chore. Often times I would lose things in the pack. More pockets were needed other than the sleeping bag compartment, main compartment, and floating hood.
The quality of the pack was lacking as well. With only light use one of the velcro strips along the frame on the back panel began to rip up. The zippers on the sleeping bag compartment were not of good quality, and snagged or broke frequently. I saw this happen on other Lowe Alpine packs as well.
I would not recommend this pack to anyone other than a beginner or an infrequent user.

This is a great pack for comfort--the suspension generally carries a moderate to good-size load for a woman with relative ease. My difficulty was the organization--in order to one thing out, I often had to unload and reload the whole pack--I need more pockets!
