FF suit - all cordura? Can't Post

Looking to buy a FF suit suited also for lots of tunnel. I'm about 6' 160lbs. Have about 10 hours in the tunnel. Interested in the Sonic tunnel suit (http://www.sonicflywear.com/...nnel/8-tunnel%20suit). Its essentially all cordura. What are the pros and cons of a mostly cordura suit? How does such a suit compare to a mostly Poly cotton suit? I imagine its slower and more powerful, albeit a little more difficult to fly?

Cordura will give you LOTS of lift, at your height/weight you might not want that much corudra.
I use it because I am at 90%ish to get off and stay off the net Head down. but i only have it on my leg lowers.

Seems to me that Cordura would be awfully stiff and HOT if you're somewhere like Eloy.
