    Numerical calculation correction to this article:
    http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/2004_ultralight_synthetic_insulating_jackets_vests_review.html

    "Montbell UL Thermawrap Jacket Exceloft (1.8 oz/yd2) Ballistic Airtight Nylon 8.0 (360)"

    8.0 ounces is about 224 grams using two significant digits for the conversion; not 360. Using an extra excel column to do this conversion instead of typing in in manually will reduce the chance of further human error.

    Great comparison article, thanks!

    1lb ~= 453.59gm (usually rounded up to 454gm on food packaging in the USofA)

    simply divide by two to get the equivalent gm for 8oz.
