The MeCo 120 Long Sleeve Tee is a light weight, long sleeved base layer made from a blend of Merino wool and polyester with Cocona technology.
The MeCo baselayer fabric is an intimate blend of ethically sourced Australian Merino wool and recycled polyester with Cocona technology. Cocona technology is a clever addition to the polyester, using activated carbon derived from discarded coconut shells and other natural porous particles, which adds to the moisture-moving and quick-drying performance of the fibre, as well as extending the comfortable working range of the Merino into higher temperatures. Cocona is contained inside the recycled fibre, so it won't wear out or wash off.
The 120 Long Sleeve uses a version of the fabric which is very lightweight and makes the most of the comfortable and antibacterial nature of Merino wool, but is made faster drying due to the synthetic content. The Cocona technology even adds to the antimicrobial qualities of the fabric to fight odour build-up: ideal for prolonged wear!
The MeCo 120 long sleeve has a close fit, making it an ideal base later for all high activity uses.
Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works.
Throughout much of the 1970’s Rab could be found on ground breaking expeditions around the world. From winter climbing in Scotland and the alps, to expeditions in the Himalaya, Rab gained first-hand experience and understanding what climbers need from their kit.
In 1981 the native Scotsman moved to Sheffield to set up Rab. By first deciding how gear should be used, then designing for that use, Rab was able to produce specialist down sleeping bags and jackets with fresh dimension suitable for high performance mountaineering gear, offering products better than any other available at the time.
Jump ahead over 25 years and Rab are still at the forefront of innovation and performance. From their super lightweight bivi bags to tough, waterproof and breathable eVent™ jackets, Rab have created some of the most hardwearing and specialist kit in the world. Rab are still to this day designed and produced within the UK, using the highest quality, lightweight materials to create award winning products; and are ceaselessly committed to Rab’s exacting standards, ingenuity and pioneering spirit.
