I always wear pants, boots, gloves, and a helmet. For summer time commutes I usually go without a proper jacket, it's too damn hot here and I don't want to be rank by the time I get to class. During winter, I add the jacket (textile or leather) to the commute.
If I'm going for a dedicated ride, no real destination, I wear more gear. During summer, that means the addition of a textile jacket (sport bike) or a Speed & Strength armored flannel (cruiser). During winter, I'll add textile armored pants to the aforementioned gear for sport bike riding or chaps to the leather jacket for the cruiser.
I've never weighed any of it.
ETA: Back when I had my ZX636 I would ride in my Teknic track leathers, as I rode much more aggressively with that bike. I sold it back in 2012 and relaxed my riding a bit.
