At 4.3 pounds and $199.00 not a bad deal.  Costco has great stuff.  You da man! Unfortunately doesn't come in my color . . .

It ought to be perfect for hammock sleeping.  One of the primary challenges (at least with the old rope hammocks we used in the 70's/80's) is keeping your sleeping bag from sliding out of the hammock.  I used to lace up the bottom of the hammock so I wouldn't have any surprise exits during the night.  With this suit on, you'd likely just bounce right up into the hammock.
