Lowe Alpine Black Tensor 5 Rucksack 


The Tensor 5 features the AirContour back system, with a pre-curved back panel that promotes a closer fit and more natural movement. A zipped top pocket and key clip keep valuables like wallet and phone safe on the move, and for those quick early morning or evening sessions, a light loop and reflective graphics aid visibility in the dark. Hydration compatible, the Tensor 5 fits a 2L hydration sleeve and has stretch water bottle side pockets.

With a lightweight breathable back system and airmesh harness suitable for energetic movement, the Tensor 5 is ideal for short summer mountain runs and mountain biking missions.

    In 1967 Greg Lowe was desperate for better gear for his climbing & mountaineering exploits. He needed a backpack that could carry his gear securely but let him move freely on technical and demanding terrain. He designed ‘The Expedition Pack’, it featured an internal frame, compression straps and other never seen before features. Our first product is now considered the blueprint from which all modern, technical backpacks are derived.
