I have to agree with @Sloan1874 regarding the weight issue. I have a couple of 4 or 5 year old FQHH Stockmans, size 38, and whilst they're quite heavy to hold (2.7kg/6lb), whilst wearing them they're barely noticeable. I don't wear them more than once or twice a week in the cooler months, but they're both floppy and wearing in nicely. I like them a lot and wouldn't swap them for any other similar jacket. For the OP, get hold of a sample jacket and see how you feel about the leather. I only have FQHH, but like the robustness and the fact that I don't need to look after it at all, as it can take any amount of serious abuse.
