User Review: Marmot Men's Oracle Jacket
Fabric: Precip Plus
Price Paid: $165
After using cheap ponchos and PVC rain suits I finally decided that I need something better than a glorified trash bag to keep me from getting wet.
The first thing that I looked for in the jackets that I was looking at was breathability. This naturally led me to jackets made with the eVent fabric, then I would turn the tag over see the price and nearly duke a shooter in my pants. After realizing that a jacket made with eVent was just not going to happen I started to look at the Marmot jackets.
After going between the cheaper Precip Jacket and the Oracle I finally decided on the Oracle. After hiking England, Ireland and Peru it was obvious that this was the right choice. The materials and quality of the jacket have kept me dry and at the perfect temp.
The bottom line is if you are looking for a great quality, breathable, and lightweight jacket to keep you dry this is the one for you, and to be honest if you look at jackets made with eVent and then the Oracle the price of the Oracle is more than suitable.
