Rab's MeCo 165 Hoodie is a mid-weight baselayer hoodie with quick drying and anti-odour properties, for multi day use.
The MeCo™ 165 Hoodie features a deep venting YKK chest zip, close fitting hood and a chin guard. A slim fit, low bulk seams and thumb loops ensure that this baselayer remains comfortably in position when layers are added. MeCo™ combines the warmth and softness of Merino Wool with 37.5™ Technology, a fast drying and wicking polyester with activated carbon. MeCo™ is quick drying and has great anti-odour properties, making it perfect for multi-day use for a range of activities.
MeCo uses 65% Australian merino wool blended with 35% Polyester with 37.5™ Technology that offers increased comfort, anti-odour properties and high levels of temperature regulation. The added 37.5™ Technology combines the key benefits of polyester - durability, strength and rapid-drying - with an activated carbon component which dramatically accelerates sweat evaporation away from the body. We use 4 different weights of MeCo™ fabrics to create a range of baselayer products, each specifically designed for certain climates and conditions. Rab® MeCo™ products keep you dry and comfortable when active and also safer and better protected in extreme cold.

Cocona works brilliantly to wick sweat away and control odours for days on end, its one of out most popular baselayers. 165 refers to the weight of the fabric, which is 'mid-weight', so it provides more insulation than a 120 layer - but its not an out and out winter baselayer, you would buy the 250 for that purpose.
How useful the hood is comes down to personal preference.
