We show that for $p\geqslant 1$ , the $p$ th moment of suprema of linear combinations of independent centered random variables are comparable with the sum of the first moment and the weak $p$ th moment provided that $2q$ th and $q$ th integral moments of these variables are comparable for all $q\geqslant 2$ . The latest condition turns out to be necessary in the independent and identically distributed case.
