This leather armour is between 15 & 18 oz. I still need to make a pair of pauldrons to go with it. The mail is 3/16th inside diameter rings in a four in one pattern. The mail took me several months and the leather plate took me a day to make.

After about a bazillion hammer strokes you get a pait of pauldrons. I still need to do some type of decoration on them but I'm not sure what yet?
