An animal skin is a piece of armour that is functionally identical to a robe: 2 base AC, no encumbrance rating. It takes 3 turns to wear or remove.
If your character begins with animal skin for armor, consider switching to a robe as soon as you find one with an enchantment or an ego. Animal skins are not normally generated with egos outside of a few special vaults, such as in some ice caves.
It is functionally identical to a robe, although less likely to have an ego, so normally a robe with a good ego or light dragon scales will be preferable. This item exists as flavour for berserkers and some enemies (such as Pikel's slaves) where wearing robes would be less thematic.
