I thought I read in something Steve J. wrote about GURPS design
that it was possible to perform acrobatics in plate mail!  It
would seem that weight has less of an effect if the armor is
fitted to the individual.  More likely the weight of the armor
has an effect on endurance - the more the armor weighs, the 
faster a character suffers from the effects of fatigue.
