Keeping you feeling comfortable for longer while enjoying the outdoors, the Rab Women's Merino+ 160 Long Sleeve Zip is a midweight base layer combining warmth, wicking, rapid drying and odour resistance, making it suitable for multi-day adventures in variable conditions.
Rab's Merino+ fabric is a mix of Merino wool and polyester with Cocona 37.5 technology. Merino wool is excellent at keeping your body temperature at a comfortable state as the temperature and your activity level changes. Polyester enhances the resilience of the fabric, and makes it easy to wash. The activated carbon added to the fabric by Cocona's 37.5 technology radically increases the surface area of the yarn so that sweat spreads rapidly across the fabric to accelerate evaporation and drying time.

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.
