NASA Astronauts will wear the lighter SpaceX and Boeing launch spacesuits in 2019

This seems to confirm that the new lighter spacesuits will be used when the astronauts are flying the new rockets and the crewed Dragon capsule.

The old, bulky spacesuits will be used for spacewalks.

The shuttle crews also did not worry the bulkiest suits for launch and entry. They used a 30 pound spacesuit.
