Thank you! I am very satisfied with it!
It is similar to the Hammock Bliss No-seeum Cacoon (theirs weighs a little over a pound though). I used that as the basic idea then took away some size, and added or took away features I thought mine needed or didn't need! I like the ease of the zipper on the side as opposed to a sock that pulls up, and I also wanted something that full encloses me instead of draping over (last time I used one that draped over I got eatin alive through my 1.9oz hammock on the bottom!)
Excellent idea. I am thinking to treat some tarps too. On seams sealed with diluted silicone, I notice that the treated areas stay kind of sticky and don't want to unstuff from the stuff sack. Does your tarp turn into a stuck blob in the stuff sack?
No, not at all! But you want to use a thinner solution for a tarp than you use for seam sealing. I mixed my solution with a little more mineral spirits than a 4:1 (spirits:silicone) and it seemed to be just about right.
Any updates on how the tarp is doing on the short term

I have used it on two trips and will use it again this weekend. No rain though.... although after last trip there was so much pollen on it, I set it up again at home and sprayed it off. I tested again at far and close range with pretty good pressure and still not even a slight mist came through! Everything else with the tarp seems to be working fine!
