The MeCo 165 Long Sleeve Zip tee is a long sleeved, zip neck base layer made from 165gsm MeCo fabric.

MeCo fabric is an intimate blend of 65% ethically sourced Australian Merino wool combined with 35% recycled polyester with Cocona activated carbon technology.

Cocona absorbs a wide range of odour molecules within the activated carbon and aids the natural anti bacterial 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.

Sizing guide
Reviewed By Alex, 19 Feb 2014

After reading the previous reviews regarding sizing, I would normally order a medium but elected for a small size and a very good decision it was. They are a generous fit and as it's a base layer I prefer a snug but comfortable fit. In all other brands I would have chose a medium. Sleeve length is good as is lower back length. Chose the Black colour and very happy with purchase along with great dispatch , ordered on Mon arrived early Wed morn.



Sizing issue
Reviewed By James, 01 Feb 2014

Product quality feels good, have to exchange mine for a size smaller than I would normally go for. Especially important for base layer to be close fit. Arms baggy chest a little loose for for normal sizing.



Reviewed By Mark, 25 Feb 2013

As well as all the other stated benefits, tops made in this material just seem to hang well on your body; there's a looseness that you don't get with other material used as a base layer. This makes them very comfortable to wear. I can't see me being anything other than these in future.
If you are thinking of buying online - I have to agree with 'Philip' on size. I normally take a large in Rab tops, but the medium in this top fits me better than the large [I have one in each size].



Must-have base layer
Reviewed By Gareth, 09 Feb 2013

This is one of my favourite peices of kit. It works over a wide temperature range, stays comfortable when sweaty and dries quickly on to feel like new, all without odour. The zip is very deep and the cuffs are easy to pull up, giving excellent ventilation. The sizing is a little generous - I nearly bought the small, yet tend to need large Rab gear (I'm less than average build).



excellent fit. comfortable material. GET ONE.
Reviewed By keith, 30 Jan 2013

This is simply excellent. Fits perfectly and is really comfortable.The discounted price made this a superb deal. Apple colour is really nice.



Reviewed By Philip, 30 Jan 2013

Bought the shirt online as it was a good offer and just what I wanted for an upcoming ski trip. However the sizing seems a bit generous particularly in the arms where it is very baggy and the colllar is not snug to the neck. Disappointing as I bought a RAb Aeon T shirt as well and that is a very good fit



Excellent, perfect fit.
Reviewed By Ioan, 06 Jun 2012

I own various base layers but this one instantly jumped to the best one I own by a long way.

Its very comfortable, light and warm, I have worn it several times, its great wearing it with the Rab Bergen Jacket when hiking it keeps you warm and never to hot.

Highly Recommended



Perfect base layer…
Reviewed By Michael, 30 Apr 2012

I first used Rab’s MeCo base-layer while climbing in Tremadog, its long sleeve design kept me warm from the cold early spring wind while belaying, and when climbing I could roll the sleeves up or unzip the half chest zip to cool down if required. The MeCo fabric is very soft indeed, while also boasting good wicking and drying properties. The base-layer is also a useful light mid-layer as part of a layer system. I’ve used the base-layer as a tee for casual occasions and looks fairly smart.

Basically this base-layer will keep you warm in the cold; keep you cool in the sun; protect you from the wind; wicks sweat away and will dry fast.

The only downside is that it won’t stop you from falling while climbing…
