Numerical calculation correction to this article:
"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!Feb 7, 2007 at 2:48 am #1377402paul johnsonMember

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.
