Well, they're not as heavy (12oz vs 13,5 iirc) but they're still though as steel (I have much more experience with Nudie than APC, but nowadays I wear my Rescues almost exclusively). The SSDS now also comes in a different flavor than before (soft, streaky denim compared to the standard starched denim used in the RRDS).
