The AK Stagger jacket has some zonal insulation, so it is warmer than the other 2Ls. I went with that jacket last season and have absolutely no regrets. I used to have some Burton Stagger pants years ago, but they fell apart at the cuffs... I have since gone with some Volcom Gore-tex pants and they are much more functional and feel more bombproof.
If you like to layer, get the 3L and call it a day. If you hate layering up a bunch (like me), go for the Stagger with a bit of insulation.
