Size - S - Authentic red - I found the red brighter irl than it appeared on my monitor. It came off as much brighter than I expected. I guess this is a true red. I always think of true reds as a little darker, like it appears on the monitor. My monitor, anyway. Check it out

I'm not one to gauge warmth as our climate is mild. Probably best as a fall jacket that you can layer, but I don't think it would get you very far w/super cold temps.
I'm not a big fan of the neckline on my neck, but it would likely look/feel different with a turtleneck, rather than an open top like the perfect-fit stripe henley with gold buttons I happened to try on with it (sz S, too low cut for me). It's like the neck length was a little too short to fold open and stay and too long to just sit up right.
This isn't my favorite color of the three, but I appreciate the vibrant option. The jacket is executed fairly well and the fabric doesn't feel weird or sound unreasonably noisy.
Size - S - Black - I was definitely disappointed in the shade of black. It's not a rich, black-black. It's got that faded, slightly brownish tone to it. That doesn't always mix well with other blacks.
I like the gold zippers, though. Nice contrast.
Looks good zipped up & felt comfortable on. This would be the perfect jacket to throw on over other layers on a cool day, or just have in the car as a stand-by when you know you'll be out until the temp changes in the early evening.
Sleeve length. I'm 5'2".
The down was coming out, too. Not horribly, but there were a few feathers floating around.
Still a thumbs up, but to the side. It's not a purchase for me because the sleeve length just isn't there. That could be remedied with an alteration from the shoulders, but I didn't love the collar or color enough to justify the cost of that. It'll be great on others.
