I have a DUI CF 200 and a TLS 350. The CF 200 is tougher. The TLS 350 is much easier to swim in. The CF 200 takes hours to dry and weighs about 450 lbs when wet. Drysuits require maintenance-seals and zippers need to be replaced periodically and leaks repaired. They are not cost efficient like the ads suggest. They are substantially warmer than wetsuits. For any real deco diving in California they are required.
