if you're into the whole "green" thing then I still recommend TimberPro UV. Which was also originally designed for log homes.

It's my go-to product for decks, fences, pergolas, and cedar siding.

Oh man. You weren't kidding. I picked up a gallon today and applied it on a piece of scrap cedar log siding that I had tried the Behr TRANSPARENT weatherproofing stuff on earlier this week. WOW. The difference truly is night and day. One looks like a bad paint job, the other looks amazing--shiny as hell and every bit of the wood pops out. I thought for sure the "finished furniture" claims would be an exaggeration, but not at all. I guess this is proof you get what you pay for. $30 vs $76 a gallon. Also, because it's so clear, I'm looking at twice the maintenance (reapplication every two years vs four), but for an incredible finish like that, the added work is a no-brainer.

Thanks again. This stuff is EXACTLY what I was hoping for.
