The Women's MeCo 120 Pant is a very light-weight baselayer pant, with quick drying and anti-odour properties, for multi day use.
The Women's MeCo™ 120 Pants feature a moisture wicking elasticated waistband, low bulk seams and a slim fit, ensuring the pants remain 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.

This Rab garment styling is straightforward nothing innovative to comment on the real story is in the Fabric and for that we suggest you read the technology bit . Cocona has been around for a few years now GoLite picked it up for their baselayer range now sadly discontinued `sadly` because it did seem to work.
The MeCo 120 pants are very light and therefore provide the minimum amount of additional warmth - so they are suited to conditions which are just too cold for being without any leggings or in situations where you are working hard in very cold conditions. Whereas MeCo 165 are slightly heavier and warmer and are therefore more suited to colder conditions.

All our products are designed with end-use in mind. The fit of our garments reflects this, and varies across different product categories.
Slim: Close fitting, for maximum performance.
The fit of each garment makes allowances for clothing layers likely to be worn underneath it: a ‘regular fit’ shell jacket will have room for several layers underneath, whereas a ‘regular fit' tee will not.
