[There’s a note on page 55 of SWED to “ignore normal clothes when figuring weight,” so I didn’t count the ~13 pounds worth of “Eastern Dude” duds. His Duster or Winter Coat probably would count toward Encumbrance – Dusters must be leather, as they list at a pound more than Winter Coats – but Doc isn’t wearing either at the moment]
