Weight limit determines the maximum weight that a character can carry before being unable to move. Single objects heavy enough to exceed the character's entire weight limit on their own cannot be carried, the character is incapable of even placing the item into their inventory, and can only be hauled or pushed around.
Characters with a particularly low weight limit may need to travel with a pack animal.
A character's weight limit is determined by the following formula.
Weight limit = character weight * 1.5
