    Both are great military grade cans. Not the quietest, but built strong and repeatable poi shift. If $$ isn’t an objection, go for the rc3. Seems like flow through cans are the hot ticket right now. Check out Huxwrx too.

    At first blush, I'm not seeing a giant difference between the two(or three if you throw in the SB-2) size and weight wise.

    The big difference are the added features, especially the first feature.
