I came across the tasc Performance brand while looking for some fresh styles that would work well for both Wisconsin Summers and Florida Winters. Tasc focuses on clothing made from sustainable materials like bamboo and beechwood and offers everything from polos to pants.
I was able to try out a few polos, a pullover and pair of pants while in Florida over the Winter and was really impressed with the brand as well as their clothes’ performance.
Fit and Feel
The first thing I noticed about the polos was the softness and stretchability. I ordered both a medium and large and found them to fit as expected. If you are in between sizes like me, go up a size as they are cut to look great when tucked in.
The pants ran true to sizing – I’m wearing a 34×30 in all the pictures. I would recommend going with a larger sized quarter zip, especially, to give yourself room to swing. I’m pictured wearing a large and it was perfect.
I tried two polo styles: The Cloud Lightweight Polo – Course Print, and Cloud Lightweight Polo – Ace Dot. I liked these two because they have unique patterns without being overly flashy.
These would be great to wear out on the course when your foursome is a bit more conservative but you still want to show your own unique style. They performed incredibly in the Florida heat as far as staying cool and breathable throughout the round, and I was perfectly comfortable all day long.
These will especially be great during those hot July and August rounds in the Midwest.
I paired my polos with a light stone motion pant and loved the look and feel. Made of a lightweight bamboo material, the pants have a good amount of stretch and I felt comfortable over every single shot, whether driving or putting, with no restrictions.
The pockets in the front and back stretched, as well, so I never worried about my ball mark or glove falling out between shots.
These clothes are not overly water resistant, but when I spilled a little on them they dried out quickly on the course.
The bottom cuffs are nice on the pants and I never felt them dragging or collecting water during early morning rounds.
From initial appearances, the Cloud French Terry Quarter Zip may look like a normal quarter zip, but I can tell you the feel, flexibility and cut have made this my go-to course pull over. It has a nice tailored look that fits my body type well and I felt like there was enough maneuverability to avoid restricting any swings.
The quarter zip did get a little wrinkled folded up in my bag, but the wrinkles seemed to disappear after a few holes. I wouldn’t recommend this, though, to be a top you leave in your bag.
I liked the overall length, too. Some quarter zips come up short or are overly long, but this hit the sweet spot with me being 5’11.
Wearing tasc Performance apparel I honestly felt like a million bucks walking up to the tee.
I am not usually the most fashionable player, but it felt really good to have some stylish clothes on the course and I felt like I’d be appropriately dressed for any country club or top-tier course along with a nice dinner to follow.
