Fabric technology has changed the way we move in the mountains and Rab’s new Meco 165 Hoodie is no different. Made from a blend of natural merino wool and quick-drying synthetic fibers, this midlayer performs at a high level no matter the activity or conditions. It’s packed with subtle features, such as the close-fitting elastic hood that slides on and off without having to unzip the extended collar. The collar itself provides added protection, and its soft chin guard doesn’t rub your skin raw. The layer is comfortable enough to wear next to your skin, but also insulates well enough to provide extra warmth. The icing on the cake is the as-advertised odor-free material. I’m always suspicious when companies make this claim, but the folks at Rab are no liars. I wore the piece three days in a row during several late fall hikes and early-season ski tours and there was absolutely no funky smell leftover. That’s more than I can say for the rest of my gear. Available at Chalet Sports. $120; us.rab.uk.com.
