Sky suit in the tunnel, or tunnel suit in the sky? Can't Post

If a person only had the budget for one suit but wanted maximum versatility, would said person want to use a regular freefly suit in a tunnel, or get the "tunnel suit" option and use it in the sky as well?

I'd say depends on how much tunnel time you'r getting.

I have something like 4 hours of tunnel time with my current suit, and there's wear already I myself am probably getting a tunnel suit (for sky too) next.

Excuse my naive flat-flyer question here but: what are the tunnel suit options for freeflying?

(FS suits have started having zipper covers since tunnels became a thing, but not as an option particularly, they're just there now.)

Have a look at the sonic tunnel suit and V2. The tunnel suit is cordura for extra lift/power. The zips are also more robust. It's a warm suit though!
