In theory, the sizes are the same. However, the Active Shell version of this is *slightly* bigger than the Paclite version. If you are on the top end of the a size (i.e. your chest is exactly or just slightly above the max chest size), then you will need to go up a size. if you are in the middle of the size-range or at the bottom, get the same size.

Just to be clear, the arm vents are at the wrists, not near the armpits.
How does the Pro Shell version compare to the GORE Bike Wear Helmet II Cover made from Paclite?
Yes, you will have space for those items in the rear jersey pockets. Reaching those items might be a different issue.
Due to the form fit and the extra length in the back, it may be a little awkward getting into the pockets. When I reach around to get stuff out of pockets, the jacket pulls a bit on the chest. If I were on the high-end of the size range, I'm not sure I could reach the pockets. If I unzip the front about 6 inches, no problems.
