Armour weight effects

Hello. I would like to know if armour weight affects any of combat parameters. Does the heavier armour makes your attacks easier to parry or changes damage or anything else? Does the armour class affects anything? Generally, I am trying to find any argument against wearing the heaviest armour in all slots.


As far as I know, it only changes your ability to dodge attacks if wearing no plate armor with the light armor perk.
Light Armour: If you’re not wearing plate armour, it will be 50% easier for you to dodge strikes in combat.
Then there is the knight in shining armor, that gives you a charisma bonus in sunny weather when wearing full plate.

You might tire more easily, but not sure if that is affected by weight of armor or just the weapon that you are swinging with, axes are heaviest thus you lose more stamina with each swing.
