You can actually see the tank though the weaves. Its not really an insulating cover.
It is not for a pump but an A5 with Tac Cap so its not really going to get too frosty and the 3.5oz tank will be a backup if the 9oz runs out.
I just finished an even nicer made cover for a 9oz tank. Fixed the cosmetic issues of binding the panel.

New Material, 550 cord:
The cord that bound the panel together making the tube was strong enough but lacking visually. Had an idea and tested it, far harder to knit but the results are worth it. The new knit changes the design of the tube slightly but gives it even more strength and looks much better:
Made a cover for a 13/3000, it will be shipped out shortly from product testing. Still a prototype and I will be working to see if I can clean up the looks a little more:
