I'll Lock Up
Here is what I have::
LW PJ27 Russet Horsehide: 7.31 lbs
LW CHP Black Horsehide: 7.6 lbs
LW J23 Black Horsehide: 8.6 lbs
LW Trojan Black Horsehide: 8 Lbs
Same range as you and RD.
Super,I would love to own a LW jacket, but the weight of his HH exceeds my personal preference.
My most recent LW, the Ryder in black 3.5 oz horsehide, would probably be right up your alley. I would compare the weight and thickness of the hide to my Good Wear Ventura in Shinki horsehide. If anything the LW is probably a bit thinner and it is really beginning to show some beautiful grain and character.
Converted to same unit for clarity, thanks guys, i like numbers!
@red devil (size44) :
LW Buco J-24 Black Horsehide 3.56kg / 7.85lb
LW Speed Demon Black Horsehide 3.62kg / 7.98
LW Trojan Green & Navy Moose hide 3.78kg / 8.30lb
@JMax (size 44):
LW PJ27 Russet Horsehide: 3.32kg / 7.31 lbs
LW CHP Black Horsehide: 3.44kg / 7.6 lbs
LW J23 Black Horsehide: 3.9kg / 8.6 lbs
LW Trojan Black Horsehide: 3.6kg / 8 Lbs
Carlos840 (size 42):
LW J-23: 2.98kg / 6.57lb
LW Leathertogs: 3.44kg / 7.58lb
So my J-23 really is a lightweight LW after all!
perhaps that is a more precise way, the act of putting a jacket on the hanger with the scale on might add extra weight
Yes, I always weigh the hangers first.
There seems to be a variability of about 30g between same hangers (got a big batch ages ago as I knew I would need them )
My CHP comes in a little over 8 lbs according to a large digital postal scale at a warehouse I was working in last year. I could weigh the Ryder, but it would be using the bathroom scale technique which you advised is not terribly accurate. I may have to order a real scale so I can keep up with you guys here!If you have an accurate way to weigh your LW jackets i would love the info too...

It used to be.The last few posts focused on jacket weight and talk of scales should be right up your alley.
As a professional mechanic for 47 years, in recharging air conditioning's they require a precise amount of freon to be added. i used a freon scale to measure 4 jackets. Did not measure any of my LL goat or Cow Jackets or my Cal LAPD
