The North Face Men's TKA 200 Echo Full Zip
A superb utility piece, The North Face TKA Echo Full Zip pullover for men is ideal for skiing, climbing hiking, camping and backpacking--or simply running out to buy the paper at the local coffee shop. The North Face recently updated this best-selling technical fleece pullover and improved the wind resistance four times more than previous Men's TKA Echo Full Zip top incarnations. While you might be inclined to opt for a favorite tee or sweatshirt on camping trips, the fast-drying fleece fabric in the TKA Echo Full Zip gives you far more--more thermal warmth, less dampness, better wind protection and moderate ultraviolet protection. Unlike cheap or conventional fleece, the lofty SDS grid fleece in the TKA Echo Full Zip features tiny square pockets that help trap and retain thermal warmth close to your skin. The result is far more warmth in a pullover that weighs less than equally thermal-efficient fleece tops. The TKA Echo Full Zip is also Zip-in compatible with other identically sized jackets and shells from The North Face, so you can keep this versatile top available in your outerwear wardrobe throughout the entire year.

The jacket is lightweight but really warm. It's also very soft. Can be warn all year round. Makes a great layering piece or can be thrown on over a t-shirt.

A warm jacket
I am completely satisfied with this jacket. It is warm, has good wind resistance and typical snug jacket fit. Nice deep pockets. The feel of the fabric is great. .

A warmer fleece without the bulk
It's difficult to write an honest review before you have lived with a garment for a while. What seems to work today may prove disappointing, say after a washing or two. Who knows. I can say that I bought this fleece because I found standard fleece inadequate when a chilly wind was blowing. The TKA 200 Echo Full Zip seems to do the trick; blocking most of the wind but letting enough through to keep you from overheating. It seems that some version of this technology should become standard. I've worn fleece for over 25 years and this is the first time item that wears as comfortable as it looks without a nylon shell! now, if we could just get come some elbow patches to extend the life of the fleece garments . . .

Overall, we liked the jacket. I did not fit exactly like we wanted which was our issue, but we really did not like the red stitching along the zipper on the pockets.
