I think the weight is only one issue, although it would be a considerable one. Just as an example, I'm guessing here a little, but just one Pauldron could weigh about 30-40 kilos. As a rough conservative estimate the whole suit including the power pack, weapons, ammunition and ancillary equipment could weigh over 200 kilos, probably more.
Mobility beyond moving your arms would be virtually impossible even for someone with enhanced musculature like a SM. If you've ever been in a vehicle when the power assisted steering or brakes have failed, you'd have an idea of what it might be like.
Further the embedded systems that aid movement when it functions could either restrict movement, but most likely would impede it to sone degree.
They could probably manoeuvre enough to get it off, but they certainly wouldn't be fighting in it.
