MEC sells the Integral Designs Siltarp 2, which is about 12oz. You do have to seam seal the ridgline but it comes with sealer. It will take you 10 minutes to do it.

I have a Hillebrg UL10 tarp which is 20oz, but bigger and the weight includes all spectra guylines with guyline runners (so easy to retension). It is also functionally more waterproof than silnylon with a 3000mm Hydrostatic Head. It also has a very high tear strength. Unfortunately it is also expensive.
