A cloth cloak.

"O Bell my wife, why dost thou flyte?
Now is now, and then was then:
Seek now all the world throughout,
Thou kens not clowns from gentlemen:
They are clad in black, green, yellow and blue,
So far above their own degree.
Once in my life I'll take a view;
For I'll have a new cloak about me."
-Anonymous, "The Old Cloak". 16th Century.

Cloaks are pieces of armour that fill the cloak slot. They take 5 turns to equip or remove, and can be enchanted up to +2. Scarves take the same slot and have useful properties, but provide less physical protection than a cloak; see their article for more details.

Egos

Cloaks can normally have the following egos:

These are only found in Ice Caves and Volcanoes, respectively:

Strategy

Looking for a cloak early on? If you come across (and can kill) Crazy Yiuf, he's guaranteed to come with a cloak. It might even have an ego! Other uniques, including Maurice and Nikola, are also guaranteed to wear cloaks.

If you still need a decent cloak in the late game, the Realm of Zot can be a good place to search. Many draconians will generate with cloaks, increasing your chances of finding one with a decent ego and enchantment.
