Paul,

Here are the fit blocks, in order of largest fit to smallest fit:

Iridine Crew - Relaxed Fit, hiking/trekking, durable, cool conditions
Accelerator - Athletic Fit , running/training, midweight, cool conditions, quick drying
Motus - Trim Fit, running/training, super lightweight, warm conditions - focus on moisture management.

I like the Iridine because it's durable. I use it for hiking and mountain biking. When it comes to Trail Running I go to the Accelerator or Motus depending on the weather. The Accelerator is a nice crossover piece for cool weather hiking as it's not super trim.

Depends on what kind of shell you're wearing! Arc'teryx Gore-Tex hard shells use extremely abrasion resistant face fabrics. You will not wear a hole through them with this hip belt.

Regarding comfort, there are essentially two bolsters created with the design of this pack. Allowing the pack to wrap around your lower back, giving it a very comfortable and stable fit.

Calif Adventure Gal, the Rotating Load Transfer Disc is a proven, reliable Arc'teryx technology that has been in the line for many years now.

I would recommend bringing the included tube of silicon lube on your journey. The system does require a small amount of lubrication periodically to avoid squeaking.

Fear not, the RLTD is robust and will serve you well!

Pylon, you can use this for conceal/carry. The Adventus Comp Polo has an Athletic fit, which isn't as form-fitting as the Trim fit (found in the Captive Polo, A2B Polo and Skyline Shirts) You can print on this fabric.

If you don't need a true black, the A2B Short Sleeve Shirt and Ravelin Short Sleeve shirt feature a Relaxed fit block. The Relaxed fit will be slightly less revealing than the Athletic.

The Sentinel's have a modified drop seat - facilitation is possible without taking all your clothes off. However, a true drop seat will make things easier with the Theta SV's.

There are other differences to consider. These pants have different fits - the Sentinel's will be looser/baggier. The Sentinel is also a full bib, while the Theta SV is a half-bib. The Sentinel's feature a brushed flannel backer while the Theta SV bib features a full Gore-Pro construction. Last, the Theta SV's have a fully-separating side zipper.

All of the Arc'teryx pieces are designed to work as a system. They layer well together and most importantly they move incredibly well together. No bunching or binding when you're rolling the windows down over that 60 footer.

Cerium LT Hoody as a mid layer.

RHO AR, RHO LT or Phase SV as a base layer. The RHO series is designed as more of an insulating piece while the Phase base layers are designed for moisture management. Depends on your work/rest cycles and how cold you get.

Send it!

The main skiing-specific feature this jacket doesn't have is a powder skirt. Otherwise it's perfectly acceptable for skiing. The Theta SVX offers the most weather protection available within the line. It has a long cut, tall caller and high volume Storm Hood with an extended Storm Brim.
