Venta MX vs Gamma MX

I am torn between the venta mx vs the gamma mx.

I have tried on the Gamma MX. I am concerned that the Gamma might be a tad short with pulling over the harness. I did like the feel and weight of the Gamma. It seems like a time tested piece.

The Venta looks like a great piece as well. I am wondering how it fits compared to the Gamma. I am also concerned about how well it breathes and how it packs.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I am looking for a jacket that would hold up in winter conditions when the shiz hits the fan and that would work well for Ice climbing and mountaineering. I have a Beta AR that I am impress with but it is a bit bulky and the hip cut is bit short for me. It also might be over the top for ice climbing days. Im looking into the Alpha SV and LT. The Lt seems it would be better for alpine style (Ice climbing, alpine routes, light and fast) and the SV would be better for expeditions.

I guess my questions are how durable is the LT? Would the LT hold up well in really crummy conditions (not necessary better than the sv, but can hold its own)?

Thanks
