I bought the red jacket because when you ride on the road, you really need to be seen. I was disappointed in the color though, because it is orange/red and not true red. It has tiny reflective markings which I like. The more reflection the better.
I was worried I would not be warm enough, but the coat is truely warm. With this and some crazy warm ski gloves and a face mask, I can ride on a cold Colorado day - no problem. The neck does not go very far up, but if I unzip it and I am sitting say inside somewhere, the zipper sticks me under the chin - kind of anoying...but comfortable otherwise.
Unlike the Gore rain coat I have, this has front hand pockets with zippers. There is a back pocket with a zipper, and inside that is a smaller safe pocket for credit cards etc that has velcro. Pockets are nicely placed and large enough. I think they could have put in one more chest pocket for a cell phone too.
Fitting seems ok, but I think they could have tapered it more. Good thing it is long in back, cause it tends to ride up when I am not riding. I wear a large because I am big busted, but I would normally wear a medium coat size. I wear a tshirt and a thermal shirt underneath just to make sure I don't get cold.
