I would think all one would have to do to the Chrysalis would be to seam seal the canopy.
IIRC the body is supposed to already be weatherproof?
One of the fellows on the board that has one says his underquilt works fine. You just have to be mindful of the underneath velcro attachments for the canopy, and you have to have an additional tarp overhead to keep the quilt dry during rain as the attached canopy would not provide sufficient coverage.
Pemethrin...not sure about that one. I plan on using a pad or inflatable so that will not be a problem for me.
If you are so inclined, Eureka offers a full coverage bug net now in case you would want to remove the canopy and just sleep under a tarp.
Hope that helps.

Anxious to try out my hammock, but NOT Shug-style! LOL!
I've joined a couple of backpacking groups and am really looking forward to getting out in the woods this year.
Think I'll spend the next couple of weekends prepping my gear and would like some advice.
What is the best way/product to weatherseal my hammock? I know we've got threads on this, but I thought I would ask someone that has one if there are any areas deserving special attention on the Chrysalis.
Also wondering whether I should treat with Permethrin before or after weatherproofing.
Finally, I'm going to start thinking about an under quilt solution, too. Assumed I'd just use my 25" wide thermarest prolite in the hammock, but I toss and turn A LOT. And I hate things sliding around.
Most UQ's are awfully expensive, though. Has anyone come up with a good solution for the Chrysalis, yet?
