I just bought an older version of the Oracle on clearance and have been very satisfied thus far. You can tell it's a nice jacket by the material, fit and various bells/whistles. However, as far as fit is concerned, I'd warn those ladies with wide hips like myself that this jacket comes down a little over your bum and if you have a large hip/waist ratio, you should probably order up a size so it will fit everywhere. It just barely fits me; were it any tighter I would have needed to bump up to a medium. Also, the Tech Specs say there's no core venting, but mine has pit zips...a nice and surprisingly unobtrusive addition.

I have worn this jacket on a run in moderate rain and didn't get wet at all until I pointed the loose sleeve up to the sky and got water inside - my silliness, not the jacket's fault.

In sum, buy this jacket and you'll likely stay dry and look quite nice whether it's currently raining or not. I'll update the review after this piece faces more serious weather.
