Rab's Meco 165 Glove is a warm, light-weight and quick drying cold weather liner glove, designed for cold weather layering or stand-alone use in warmer conditions.
The MeCo™ 165 Glove uses innovative MeCo™ technology to combine the benefits of 100% Merino wool and 375™ polyester fabrics, which work together to keep you cooler during activities in hot weather, and drier and safer in cold conditions.
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.
||||MeCo™ baselayers - combine 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 in a variety of conditions.|
||||37.5 Technology - permanently embeds millions of particles in the fabric's fibres which further increases surface area, reduces humidity and speeds up evaporation. This allows Dryflo to dry up to 5X faster than similar fabrics. Click Logo to read more.|

When all you need is a thin layer to keep the cold at bay these RAB MeCo gloves are designed just for that purpose. So light you`ll hardly know you`re wearing them - ideal for cold morning jogs or as a liner glove. The fingers seem to be quite long and although they are a very thin glove I didn`t find them particularly dextrous.
Buy them for their lightweight next-to-skin comfort or as a layering glove.
