X3 vs Rebel Can't Post

Hello, I know these are pretty new suits to compare:
Are they the same suit cut?
I realize the rig upper narness/cheststrap sits inside the rebel and outside the x3...
Is this the only real difference?
are the Legwing/armwings the same size?
What about the armwing sweep?
Also would like to know if the inlets are split on either suit?

Same suit? No, but closely related, they have the same wing planform but the Rebel has the harness on the inside which changes the construction of the suit some what, giving a slight performance advantage.

X3 for skydiving & BASE
Rebel for BASE

James,

Given that you are a factory pilot and most likely have been jumping boths suits quite a lot, care to elaborate on exactly what kind of "slight" performance increase there is on putting the harness inside the suit? Does it increase your GR? Give you more forward speed? If yes, how much? Have you noticed this based on gps tracks (all other variables equal) or just based on gut feeling?
