Men's TKA 80 Hybrid 1/2 Zip Shirt
Fantastic product. It is lightweight but does kep you warm and fits great, not too tight, and not too loose. I am 6, 1" and fits perfectly!
Great for physical activities down to 50*F
I've had a chance to finally use this shirt in cooler temps now that the Winter weather is slowly starting to hit the SF Bay Area. As long there isn't a stiff breeze and/or raining, this shirt does the trick for me. I also wear this under a soft shell jacket when I'm just casually dressed for day-to-day activities. Can't go wrong with this shirt!
Versatile, Lightweight Pullover
I own three of the TKA 100 fleeces since I was very pleased with the first one I bought. With the TKA 80, I now have a lighter weight, more versatile option for those days when it's quite cool, but not COLD. However, it also has been the perfect top (paired with a tech tee) when it really is cold if the activity is more strenous (trail run or a harder/major elevation change hike). It seems the material might not last as long as the TKA 100 (or above), but that's not a flaw of the item, just a fact from it being thinner and therefore possibly not standing up to wear and washing over a few years. It is a little tighter fit than the other North Face TKA's, but it seems that TNF has taken the fit of their products in the last year or two towards a more "athletic" fit, which I actually prefer. The latest TKA 100 I bought, about the same time as this TKA 80, has a more snug fit than the ones that are 2-4 years old, so I believe this is a change TNF is making in general to all fleeces. Highly recommend this TKA 80 pullover if you need a lighter weight fleece than you can find from any other manufacturer.
