I hike in the N. GA, TN, and NC mountains during late spring, late summer/early fall. Sometimes late fall. also some hiking in FL. Pretty much during the rainy seasons. I gave my first Pheonix Jacket to a friend (I lost a bet) and regreted it since. I just got my second one this year. I got orange b/c of hunting season.
This is a great jacket. Lightweight, compact (to the size of a nalgene bottle) and quite breathable. I have worn it from extemely heavy monsoon type rain (with PreCip Full Zip Pants) to sleet (with base layer and fleece) and have remained dry and warm. Armpit zips are a plus. Rubber wrist straps that adjust cuffs never come loose. Hood can be rolled away when not in use. Pockets could be a lil bit higher so you won't have to unbuckle the waist strap on your pack but it's really no big deal. This is a must-have for your gear closet!!

Great jacket. Very lightweight, just throw it in your bag and forget about it. Perfect for any weather since it's a layering piece. I've worn it in 5 degree weather with just a sweater on underneath. Awesome product, also extremly water-proof since the seams are taped and the jacket is made out of PreCip material.

I was looking for a lightweight yet somewhat functional rain jacket. I happened onto the Marmot Oracle and Phoenix jackets. I was drawn to both. However, I gave the Phoenix the nod and was glad I did. The Oracle was very competitive, however, the pockets were too large and awkward.
The nicely sized pockets are perfectly located and are sufficient for use to warm hands and to hold glove liners (among other things). The interior pocket is roomy as well. The jacket is very lightweight and compact. Easily folded down and tucked into my Marmot Daypack. The hood also folds down and stays put when not in use. Easy to engage from tucked position.
So, if you are needing a lightweight rain jacket for your arsenal, the Phoenix is a solid choice (not to mention the Garnet color is unreal). This guy is not looking back.
