Stated weight is 100g. I thought this improbable so I checked TNF website which clearly states 156g. 

I asked exactly the same question when 100g was offered as one of the choices in the recent competition for the same garment, however there was no response.  

It would be helpful if you could clarify this. Many thanks.

That gave me a lovely image of a haunted empty jacket with gloves attached to the end of its sleeves and a void inside its hood, grasping and reaching over rough terrain, flapping and howling in the wind, in a relentless attempt to catch up with its quarry... I mean owner.

Crying out “You took me off and left me by your pack. You neeeeed me. I am coming back to you.” And then, in a burst of effort, the arms grab and wrap around, and all goes dark.

North Face Horror Jacket.
