    Greetings, I am looking for information, or reviews about some of the new 7mm Ti lined semi-dry suits and one piece wet suits that are available. I am looking specifically for information regarding Tilos or Akona products. How well do they work, hold up, last etc. I dive the Oregon and Washington coast and I am used to a 5 mil 2piece farmer john and beaver tail, I have been out of the game for a while and I am looking to get back into the water, but need to get a new suit.

    Thanks for the help.

    Rock, given where you dive, I'd save up my pennies for a drysuit. In the end you will be much happier.

    Drysuits come in a variety of types & price ranges. For example, some good Canadian makes like Whites or Brooks out of BC would probably be a great buy for you right now. Abyss is also highly rated, but they are out of Nova Scotia (the East Coast).

    Just my $0.02's worth,

    Awesome semi-wet suit. (I mean semi-dry.) I have one as do some of the people I dive with and it's incredible. One guy wore a t-shirt under his and yes, it stayed dry. I couldn't believe it. Dove in 42 degree water for 35 minutes and was totally fine.
