I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.
I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.
Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.
I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear.
I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.
I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy.
I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down.
I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.

the Arc'teryx Rampart pant is made using the same fabric in a more relaxed fit...
...and Arc'teryx offers a product lifetime warranty. get it and hit it...
Weight is the easy answer (1 being the lightest) this is due to face fabric, and liner. so... 1 is very light, stretchy and unlined, 2 has a light fleece laminated to the inside, and 3 has a bit burlier face with a slightly thicker fleece laminated inside.
Well, welcome to the fam! Long arms are accomodated by Arc'teryx. I'm guessing a Lge would work best, but check the sizing chart up by the "options" box to check your specs. Arc'teryx is typically more fitted and has longer arms than other brands, especially in the climbing influenced product, which this is.
Despite the lightweight of the Axios 25, it carries weight really well. It's got a ribbed internal back panel that is light, but offers good support and protection from the contents. The main pocket has room for water bottles jacket, lunch, camera and a few other items
The Theta SV is cut more fully that this Alpha LT, and also used a heavier face fabric. The Alpha LT does have a drop tail but isn't quite as long as the Theta SV. The pockets are a bit bigger on the Theta SV but you can still fit skins in the front pockets of the Alpha LT (inside is a small security pocket). Hoods have the same 4 point adjustment.
The Atom SV is warmer than the Venta; the Venta offers more weather protection. you could take a look at the Kappa which has insulation and great weather resistance. I've worn my Kappa in serious snowstorms and stayed very comfortable.
The Alpha SV will cover a Venta MX; the Alpha has a longer bottom hem.
The Theta AR is an excellent companion to the Atom LT, and you would buy the same size in both jackets for a proper fit, so medium for the Theta AR. Enjoy!
You would get a better fit with the Theta AR or Alpha SV. Either of these have just a bit less volume in the body. You'll need at least a medium to accomodate your length.
the camisole doesn't have a shelf bra. Any of the Arc'teryx shelf bra products are called "tanks".
Not sure about the "easy" weather comment because the Alpha SV is built to handle brutal conditions.
Take a look at the reviews and comments about these two jackets and it should be clear.
You can see the size of the internal volume as the pockets go from the two seams. big skins might be tight, but if you're using lighter weight, smaller skins, they should work.
It's got a really soft fuzzy texture. I would recommend to not put this in the dryer as the light fuzz is pretty heat sensitive.
The Gamma SL Hybrid is quite different from the Gamma MX. SL is a lightweight softshell that blocks some wind and light moisture, but doesn't insulate since it isn't built with the fleece that lines the inside of the Gamma MX. I'd say if you're looking for a softshell primarily for winter conditions, the Gamma MX is your tool. For warmer weather, and things like summer alpine climbing, the Gamma SL would excel. Either will layer well with the Alpha LT
Go for the XL, Sergey.
The Gamma LT are crazy resistant when abrasion is involved, and tends to be more so than dryskin. The Fortius fabric used here is also lighter and has a bit more in the stretch department.
This pack would work well for a carry-on.
The Theta SL is cut a bit more trim than other Arc'teryx jackets, but I bet an XL would work best with enough room for a warm layer but not too loose when you're rolling it solo. Double check the sizing chart above.
