Well and layering if you layer. The thing is armour was designed to not give such penalties if at all possible. (So I guess the rules for badly fitting armour may tangentially qualify for what you are looking for).

As to the bulk/weight split, if you think a particular item would be made harder to carry or wear due it bulk rather than is weight, than I'd rule on a case by case basis. E.g is some insisting on carrying 3 floor lamps at the same time. or less extreme just badly packed stuff (which I thought there was rules for but cant find right now)
