    Some have made tarps, tarp doors, hammock socks, hammock undercovers and so on. It's noisy, but can be softened up a bit.

    Tyvek is what I've seen used before for these. The Insultex House Wrap claims an insulating factor in addition to the usual Tyvek properties (if I read it correctly). There may be a difference between the two products (or just marketing hype).

    Insultex is a popular synthetic insulator. MacEntire uses it in his MollyMac UQs. You can buy it by the yard from Scott at Backwoodsdaydreamer.

    Insultex®

    The lightest and thinnest thermal insulation ever
    This new cellular structured fabric is truly revolutionary. It’s proven that air is the best Insulation and Insultex® incorporates countless micro air cells. These individual pockets trap air and do not allow it to escape. This is the key to keeping people warm. Insultex® simply reflects the body’s radiant heat back to the body. Other properties possessed by Insultex® include being very thin, lightweight, flexible, waterproof, windproof and buoyant.
    lightest***thinnest***warmest
    A factual example of the efficiency of Insultex® is as follows:
    1 layer of Insultex® protects a person to –25º C (-13º F)
    1 square yard of Insultex® is 0.021 inches thick and weighs 0.42 oz.
    8.8 oz. of Insultex® can float approx. 287 lbs. of body weight
    Insultex® has a melting point of 194°F
    Insultex® material can be sewn and/or laminated
    Multiple layers of Insultex® can be used to provide practically unlimited levels of insulation
    Insultex® is the newest thermal insulation on the market and promises to revolutionize insulation as we know it. This incredible material can be used in outerwear, gloves, hats, pants, tents, sleeping bags, coolers, boots, swimsuits, blankets, comforters; just about anything that would benefit from it’s remarkable insulating or buoyant qualities.

    You have referenced the Insultex insulation made for clothing, which has been extensively used here for quilts.

    The OP has asked about Insultex House Wrap which is a different product that I don't remember anyone trying yet.
