    5,6 kg, what the heck. What size is it? There is a number of 10 pound old Aero real deal heavy steerhide jackets out there, but I'm not sure whether any of these can beat your coat. None of my jackets can.

    It's probably fur coat. Russian army fur coats are 5-8 kg easily. I've seen a few.

    Aero Steerhide Barnstormer. It was 13 lbs. I know I had to pay extra for the shipping 'cause it was over 5 kilograms.

    My JL in 4.25oz CXL with heavy flannel lining, nylon quilt in the sleeves and mouton fur snap on collar is pushing 11 lbs. it's an absolute fortress.

    By far the heaviest "leather" was my Brown Vest De Rally .... I can't remember the exact weight ( it's posted on here somewhere) but it was easily over 10 lbs) .... the toughest, heaviest and most unwieldy horsehide I have ever owned. My shearling lined LHB comes in at just under 10lbs ( but then it is a MWHH LHB lined with a D1 :) My Filson heavy wool lined Tin-cloth Packer comes in at 9lbs and my LW ANJ-4 is 9lbs.

    The shearlings feel the lightest on but none of them felt overly uncomfortable to be honest ( except the VDR perhaps which felt like carrying another person after a few hours) :)

    I have a full length wool overcoat from the good old days that pushes 10 lds easy. Maybe I will weigh it someday but it's spring now so it stays in the wardrobe ;)

    My Teamster is the heaviest, although my Filson Mackinaw Cruiser is probably the warmest. Not too many cold days in N Texas, especially this past winter. My Teamster is just now developing patina and is very flexible with a nice drape.

    I'm a big guy, takes a heavy jacket to make me notice... My heaviest jackets/coats would probably be my Aero Thunder Bay, my two Barnstormers and my LHB, all are horse of course.

    I have a wool Russian greatcoat that weighs like an anchor, but shields me from everything from the nose to the wrists, and the wrists to the ankles. For less severe weather, I have an M. Julian leather jacket that weighs close to 10 lbs and is my go-to/knockaround jacket.

    I agree with @Worf. My heaviest is probably the Thunder Bay.

    I've tried on one of those Russian greatcoats before. Weighed a ton. Loved it, but the Soviet star bottons would probably draw some attention. I'd have gotten it but California isn't Leningrad.

    Holy cow! Those two pictures show why you can't trust photos on the internet to represent true color - one makes it look brown and the other makes it look cordovan! I would swear they were two different jackets.

    I forgot. I didn't want to shell out for the belt! I miss that jacket. It's a beast.
