I had the first version for more than 10 years, which I'm still using to this day for work. I find the fit of this one even better at XL (same size as the old one), which at 6'4" fits me perfectly! One issue to note are the cuffs. On the old version I was rolling up the sleeves, which made said cuffs stretch and look rather unaesthetic because the rubber fibers would just snap/ stretch, preventing them from returning to their original size. On this newer version they seem more stretchy and have a different feel, so it's possible the issue has been fixed but i'd still avoid pulling the sleeves up. Buy a T-shirt version if you need a short sleeve: simple. All in all, a superb baselayer! Dries in an instant so you can wear it right away after washing it in a stream. It's not thermal wear, It keeps the wearer both warm and cool at the same time, which is really comfortable. You will feel every gust of wind while wearing it so it will evaporate the "backpack sweat" in an instant! Highly recommended!
PS. I'm not sure what other people mean when saying it's too short. The back reaches to about half my behind and the front a bit past my waistline, fully covering the belt, yet leaving a bit of room to access the pockets comfortably. And I have a relatively long back! It really fits well, just like it is shown photo's!
(the previous one is in fact a bit shorter, despite being the same size.)
