I definitely wouldn't use MonoKote over foam. Works great on wood, but requires too high of a temperature for foam. My personal favorite low temp covering is Solarkote (made by the same folks who make Solartex).

I have used Ultracote, but didn't like it too much. No experience with Orocover, but another alternative is Econokote by Top Flite. It's a low temp covering which works fine over foam. I used this on my Byron Christen Eagle. Both Econokote and Solarkote are pretty light, though I've never weighed them.
