Carrying capacity on followers glitched?
I've been trying to equip Mjoll (follower/wife) with some decent equipment and she seems to cap out @ 59.3 weight w/out a weapon. How do I fix it so she has her proper carrying capacity? I'm assuming this would be true for any follower I get.

There is a mod that will fix some bugs for followers including carrying capacity. There is also another couple of mods that will give you extra carrying capacity with bandoliers, backpacks or duffle bags.

Honestly I shouldn't have to resort to mods to fix the game. But, it is what it is. I'll search around and see if there is anything that I like in the mods.

I can't remember what causses this to happen. You could try a showinventory to see if there's a hidden item, or just resetinventory and see if that clears it up.

It was a glitch in the game. Lydia's carrying capacity got less and less until if I took anything off her I could not immediately return it to her. Apparently she had a default bow that kept respawning until she had 39 of them which did not show on her follower inventory.

This was fixed by a Followers mod which ONLY fixed some of the followers bugs but did not change the gameplay in any other way. If I remeber correctly the mod was by Mangue.

I think I see what's happening. I am currently using Mjoll and if I take anything off her she won't be able to equip anything at all. I'll look up the showinventory command and see if I can't delete any invisible duplicates. So far, I've found no mods that directly address this issue.

If nothing but a short term solution without a mod. You could always do the "Take all in chest" glitch.

showinventory: Is there a way to scroll through the console command text? I could only see the last 3 items.

resetinventory: Didn't work. I think some of the commands were disabled.

I am not familiar w/ the "take all in chest" glitch.

There is a glitch with the followers that make them have unlimited carrying capacity.

Put everything you want them to carry in a chest and tell your follower to take everything in the chest. They will take everything every time without slowing. (I've gotten my follower up to 10k in weight) In your case, just put everything in the chest that you wish them to equip/hold. tell them to take all, and nothing more.

Awesome. That worked. I'll keep it in mind for future games. Hopefully it never gets corrected. Thank you for all the help, I do appreciate it.
