Curious about the redesign. I have several of these from previous years, just wondering how it compares as far as fit. The sleeves look a little strange in the pictures. Any help is much appreciated.

Smartwool did an entire re-design of Lt Wt for this fall. The sleeves you mentioned are a bit longer, offering more coverage on the outside of the hand. It has a similar feel as a garment with thumbholes but without the hole. The cut it also a bit longer in the body. Smartwool combined two fabrics on the new light weight, a ribbed material under the arms that allow more freedom of movement and their jersey knit for the rest. I think you will be very happy with the updates. When you first put it on you can't help but think how well thought out the design is.
