It's been 5 or 6 years but IIRC when I weighed it before I made a tarp out of it, it was about 0.52 oz/sqyd. I said I had about 12 nights in it, but after thinking about it some more, I probably have 20-25 nights in it.
On another note- I read where duct tape is recommended to patch holes.
That will work but it's heavy (hey I'm a gram weenie) I have found that
for small punctures scotch tape works great. Just don't try and apply it if
the Cuben is wet. As a test I put a piece of scotch tape on a scrap piece of
cuben and submerged the whole thing in a glass of water. A week later the
scotch tape was still stuck on. It was easily pulled off but was still sticking.
