I bought this jacket to replace my previous Marmot rain jacket, which after ~4 years of service was starting to disintegrate on the inside. I was looking for a verbatim replacement, and the Oracle was as close as I could get. I agree with the others who mention the tall, stiff collar (chin guard?) - it's a little too much, and I hope it settles down. The two-way main zipper was key for me, so I was happy to find that in the Oracle, Finally, I think the length is slightly shorter than my previous version. I would have preferred the longer length. But overall, the fit and look are great.

I'm so pleased with this purchase. I got the coat in size S. I'm 5' 2" about 125 lbs. It fits well and I can wear a fleece or sweater underneath it. I like the pink color, even though it's a little brighter than I imagined. Good water proof gear and it's comfy. Great coat!

Nice convertible rain proof jacket. hood rolls up into a pocket or is removable. There are zip open arm pit vents. the cut is regular-I am 5'5" 135lbs and the med fit great alone or with a layer. There are waist draw strings for more aggressive wind/rain. Light weight and breathable. Velcro adjustable sleeves. Got on sale for a steal!

This coat runs very snug across the chest. I wear a size 10 in most clothes so thought the medium would work. I ended up with the large and it fits well across the chest. The cut of the arms makes it completely unrestricted for movement, really wonderful. The coat flares out at the bottom so your leg movements are also completely unrestricted. I haven't worn it in the rain but am sure it will be fine.

Would be a great coat if it was cut fuller in the chest. I am not slender, a size 10 fits me well at my 5'3" and this coat in medium had plenty of room at waist and hips, even with a fleece shirt underneath. Unfortunately it was so tight across the chest that it outlined each breast and smashed me in, without any extra layers. I am a B cup at best, not well endowed at all. My husband wondered if it had been cut for a man but the waist is tucked in for a flattering silhouette.

At first I was worried it was going to be too small (i'm 5'9", 150 lbs), but when it got here in the mail today it fit perfect! The color is more true red than the picture implies, but I still think it looks great. The jacket is non-restrictive, yet flattering. I cannot comment on its performance yet, only the fit. If your on the fence about this jacket, get it! They have free returns if you don't like it!
