I had all three variants last year (have sold the VR Lite).
The VR Lite is slim, the VR is regular, and the VR Guide is on the loose side - imo. If you're a medium in the VR Lite, you'll be a medium in the VR.
You can comfortably walk all day in either of the first two - with a baselayer or a base and fleece underneath. The Guide is way, way too hot for walking in unless it's seriously minus degrees and/or windchill. The hi-loft fleece is really effective.
The VR is, imo, the best of the lot - it's just a put on and forget jacket with a great cut, hood and pockets that suits 90% of conditions for most of the year in this country.
Hope this helps!
Incidentally, I hope you don't mind my saying, but you seem to be taking an awful lot of jackets for 3 nights! I'd take the Cypher (shell), the VR Lite (all-day) and the Photon (night/stops).
