Rab's Tensor range of packs are aimed at day activities be it running, hiking or bike riding, they have a foam padded back panel that is sculpted to allow some airflow.

Rab says:

Grab your pack and go with the Tensor 5, a lightweight multi-purpose day pack suitable for hiking, biking and running.

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.

Our Verdict

Rab's Tensor 5 Rucksack is one of a series of capacities in the Tensor range aimed at general purpose day use. The packs are very well made with a good feature set, we particularly like the wide opening and two external mesh pockets for stuffing the gear you need easy access to.

Inside there's a bladder pocket and a zippered mesh pocket for small stuff, and a similar pocket accessed from the outside. There's only one bladder outlet and that would bring the tube out over the right shoulder.

The back panel is foam to keep the contents from poking through and is grooved in an attempt to get a bit of venting on the back. It's not stiffened but you wouldn't really expect that on a rucksack without a hipbelt - the Tensors have a strap that acts as a stabiliser rather than an out and out hipbelt.

It's a nicely finished pack but there are a lot to choose from in this category.
