Thinking of returning it for a pink or black. I placed the built red sleeve next to it so you can tell the difference.
I have the persimmon cover as well. I think it's okay, but would prefer if they had gone all the way with red or orange. It seems to photograph more orange than it is in real life. I'm sure there's a Crayola this color, but until I find it, I would best describe it as a light tomato red, or maybe pimento. It does seem to lean more into the red zones than orange, but it's a mid tone, not super deep. Maybe it needs more black to make it a nice chili pepper red. I'd say it's okay, but not quite there.
Personally, I think the persimmon should have been darker and the blue, lighter.
