The PreCip does have pit zips and I use a PreCip when I hike all the time!

This jacket does have pit zips. The only mesh is for the two pockets. It does not have a full mesh lining.

Pit zips, yes. Lining, no.

Excellent pit zips (an essential feature), but no lining. Works great with layering. Both PreCip and are great 3 season rain jackets. I've hiked with layers in 30 degree weather and was very comforable.

Has pit zips that work in conjunction with the pocket zips to let air flow thru. No mesh lining except at pocket area. If you want to stay dry from condensation/perspiration on the inside, wear something that wicks under this jacket (fleece, polartec, etc). Haven't tried Oracle so can't compare.
