I see nothing wrong with a red jacket. A lot of people ride with red jackets. I used to use a red jacket. Having a red jacket with a big white cross on it would be confusing to people though.

It didn't have a big white cross on it, its small

Like 2 inches across and is 25% of it wasn't even visible because my backpacks straps and the chest strap that goes across where covering it.

Not fabricating a story as I go, just adding more "evidence"

I have no reason to doubt you. I was just saying in general that a red coat with a big white cross would look like Patrol to most people.

Yes it would, especially with all the people from Asia and India, they could easily mistake someone in red for ski patrol

Or someone who just had a yard sale and is in a daze

Yes, and even white people without a head injury might make that same mistake.

I think ski patrol should have to wear a flashing red light on there head. That would solve everything.

Just cover it up with some tape, or something like that. If they still raise an issue with the coat's color, then do as others have suggested and talk to a manager about a discount on another coat. just remember to be respectful at all times

life IS good.
