Rab MeCo Base Layer 165 Zip Top. Available in Men's Apple Green and Women's Black.
The MeCo 165 Long Sleeve Zip Top is a long sleeved, zip neck base layer made from 165g/m2 MeCo fabric.
New MeCo fabric is a blend of 65% ethically sourced Australian Merino wool combined with 35% recycled polyester with Cocona activated carbon technology. 'Cocona' fabric is made using natural technology. Activated carbon is derived from discarded coconut shells and other natural micro porous particles. These particles are contained within the fibre and can not wear out or wash off. Cocona is extremely breathable and accelerates evaporation - making it ideal for use in baselayers.
Cocona absorbs a wide range of odour molecules within the activated carbon and aids the natural anti bacteral properties of Merino wool. The major benefit of MeCo blended fabrics is the vastly reduced drying time for these fabrics, this makes them excellent for use as a year round base layer and also saves washing and drying time.
