Found something really cool to maybe create a grip, called Sugru.
Anybody used this before? How strong is it?
www.sugru.com

You made me spend almost two hours dreaming possibilities to use this wonderful material to do some DIY projects. Thanks for letting us know about the existence of this thing.

Just wonder if one could make use of it to design some sort of weather seal on lenses, camera and battery grip etc etc.

I use the Peak Design Cuff with my EOS M. You should check out the Peak Design System, its one of the most versatile accessories out there.

I use the Leash and Cuff to easily switch between a regular strap to a wrist strap in seconds.  The straps are small too which is perfect for the EOS M. And if I'm hiking, I use the Capture Clip to "clip" my camera on to one of my backpack straps, keeps my hands free and my camera from dangling around on a strap.

Here's the link for their kickstarter video if you wanna see all 3 accessories in action:

I use the same setup from Peak for my M - cuff, leash, Capture Pro with Microplate, and long clamping bolts for my thick packstrap.  Great for hiking or just around town.

I find the ef-m adapter useful as a backup option, to extend reach, or to mount specialty lenses.  Before I had the entire ef-m lens collection I tried all of my L glass on the M to see how they performed. I had used them on a T2i before so I was already comfortable with the crop factor.  I appreciated the lenses with IS a bit more but found I could handhold them with appropriate shutter speeds.

I really prefer the native lens for their size and balance.  In the photos you can see how I cradle the M and lens in my left hand, freeing my right for the controls. It's surprising how small and easy to hold is a 200 mm lens.  It's somewhat similar to your golf grip.  Lenses with the adapter were a bit more awkward.

My primary outdoor lenses for the M are the 11-22 and 55-200, with the 22 my choice for indoors.   I find the 18-55 most useful for backyard video of the grandkid. The adapter still gets used for the Tamron 150-600, 100 f/2.8L IS Macro, and 8-15 f/4L fisheye which don't have ef-m counterparts.

Just got the EOS M + 22mm. Like it and will keep it for the long term, so now need to think about accessories.

4. Bag: Neuro earlier had mentioned the Dashpoint 20. Any other suggestions?

Thanks, all, in advance.

The Dashpoint 20 is a good fit for the M+22.  I use a hard case for storage and travel with my M system now.  I use the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20 to carry the M, 2 lenses, batteries, etc when I'm out and about.  I also have a 3" aluminum rod tube to carry my M, 2 lenses, and accessories when I'm hiking/backpacking.

I use the Flipbac 4 rubber 'peel and stick' grip along with the Canon ER-E1 wrist strap and this combo makes it very hand-holdable with one hand.

I use the Canon EOS M jacket & strap that came with my kit. My version is black, while this picture is the red one

I prefer it to just a rubber grip. It makes the whole M much comfort in my hands.
The con is that you'll have to take it off when changing battery or card.

How do you like the 55-200? I can't find any definitive information about it at all. Do you find it to be sharp at all/most FL? Do you feel that the lens is worth $400, or is it simply the only game in town with a small footprint? Any insight would be appreciated!

The Flipbac grip is wide and not that thick. How does it compare to the DSLR grip in terms of handling. Rubber grip will give you a better traction for sure.
