  1. Casey S.

    I love this cloak! I honestly thought it would be a thin cloak made from t-shirt material, but it far exceeded my expectations! It’s a thick and well made garment that fits perfectly. I’m 5’10”, and it is about 2″ off the ground for me. Looks great, feels great, and much heavier than you’d expect. Wonderful cloak for the money! Thanks again!

  2. James M.

    I recently got mine in brown and it certainly did not disappoint. The fabric is durable and functional, and the cut and fit was very well done as the cloak draped perfectly and comfortably over my shoulders. The large single button fastener is nice and strong, negating the need for an after market clasp, with an added bonus of a drawstring around the edge of the hood for those you who like a more snug fit. And finally the color was rich and even. Would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in a fine cloak.

    A well made simple cloak. The button is heavy and nice quality. Sewed some faux fur around the mantle for some added nord-ness. It’s a pretty long cloak, I’m 5’11 and it almost touched the ground. Definitely recommend

  4. Kimberly S.

    Very pleased. The colors are very rich and deep. I ordered 5 different colors (brown, green, gray, wine, and blue) and the only thing that is different than I expected was the blue. It is much darker than the picture shows which I actually liked because it doesn’t stand out from the other colors like I was afraid it would. The quality of the fabric appears great. They are heavy and warm.

  5. Barbara R.

    This is a very, very well-done cloak. It’s durable, it’s nice-looking, and it is definitely a cloak.

    However, I ordered this as a back-up plan for a cosplay when fabric failed. I expected the brown I saw on the website, and instead, I got a VERY DARK CHESTNUT BROWN. Which, I wouldn’t have ordered this if that was the shade I was going to get.

    It’s fine, I’ll salvage it, and it IS a lovely cloak. I would recommend it if you need a cloak. Just be aware it’s going to look a lot darker IRL if you order ‘Brown.’

  6. Douglas H.

    Now this is a cloak. Heavy and durable, it’s far superior to the cheap polyester cloaks you can get at costume shops. It will definitely keep you warm. Nice length, good hood size, and the black is a deep, rich black.

  7. Michael W.

    I think it is very cool. Not very expensive, and looks great. A bit long for man of 6’3″, but no big deal.

  8. Cody H.

    This is a great cloak! From the thickness of the fabric to its overall length, I am impressed. Will definitely be buying another for my crusader outfit. Great price and shipped quick!

    I was given this cape as a ‘thank you’ gift for helping out in a wedding. The bride and groom also gave their groomsmen these same capes. While I love the color and quality of the material, and the price is ever fair, I have one big complaint against this product. The loop and metal button on the cloak is not sewn on properly and it began to rip off after the second time I wore it. I’m not the only one who has had this problem. All of the groomsmen’s capes from the wedding I mentioned earlier in this review, did the exact same thing. As a matter of fact, of the 10 people I know who own this same cape, 7 of them have had their loops and buttons pull off. Thankfully, I am a professional seamstress and was able to fix mine and my companion’s capes. This is such an important element in a cape’s function and design, that more time and attention should have been given to such an important detail. The problem was even simple to fix which is why I am complaining about this issue. It should have been prevented before being shipped out. Because of this flaw in the design and construction I am unable to give this product the 5 star review I wish to give it. Outside of this problem, I do love my cape and everything else about it. Hopefully next time I receive something from this site, it will be made better to where I can give it a higher rating.

    Another great product from Mytholon and great service. Ordered it on Friday evening after hours, it shipped Monday morning and I had it Wednesday. The green is a lot darker then the picture which I knew from an earlier shirt purchase. It’s a dark forest green which is exactly what I wanted. Most companies use a try closer Mytholon uses a metal button which is a lot better and quicker..

  11. Doug S.

    Great cloak. Be warned that it will keep you very warm. I wore it inside, and got a bit toasty. Perfect for outside on a cool day.

  12. Brooskie (verified owner)

    This cloak is beautiful and made of thick fabric with a rustic texture. It drapes well on me, and the large metal button that closes the neck is a great detail. I’m not a huge fan of the drawstring for the hood, but I do think it could be useful. I almost bought a slightly cheaper cloak, but I’m glad I chose this one. The price is great for the good quality and design of the product.

  13. David Pace (verified owner)

    Great cloak, really nice color (I bought black), great texture & good thickness of material. Length is good & I like the hood & clasp.

  14. Blake Berning (verified owner)

    Nice, heavy material. Some people mention issues with the clasp ripping a little bit, but I’ve yet to experience any wardrobe malfunctions. I also like the roomy hood!

  15. a_hill2k (verified owner)

    Quality cloak, only issue is the button is a bit difficult to undo (at least with my large fingers)

  16. James Curcio (verified owner)

    Quality canvass cloak, better than I was expecting given the price. Heavy and well constructed, deep hood, appropriate length; the button/clasp is obviously the weak link but mine hasn’t torn or broken yet, and if/when it does it should be an easy enough fix.

  17. Vinny (verified owner)

    Excellent quality cloak. Length is perfect for me at 6’1″. Heavy and well made.

  18. rongeary2150 (verified owner)

    Very nice product. I ordered the black. The canvas is a nice weight and well made. May order another in brown.

  19. v4lu3s (verified owner)

    Bought this for my wife as we were going to the Texas Viking Festival, which was likely to be an all day in the mid-50’s at best, and likely breezy. She had a great dress, but I wanted to have her able to keep warmer and cut the breeze. This cloak did that perfectly. She is about 5’4″ and the cloak just touched the ground offering full coverage which through the most the day made a huge difference for her. The cloths hangs nicely, looks great, and left her perfectly warm all day. I am likely to order a second one for myself if we find events that are cooler, I love the look better than the cloak I have for myself.

  20. mbaldassarre (verified owner)

    It is easy to see why this is one of their most popular, best selling items. Very strong, high-quality material, very comfortable and a perfect style and fit. To call the material “canvas” might give you the wrong idea, as the material is neither stiff nor excessively heavy. But just calling it “cotton” vastly undersells the thickness, and strength of it as well. It’s neither a TENT nor is it a T-SHIRT! Highly recommend picking one of these up. Especially for the price, you just cant beat a versatile piece like this.

    BTW… A lot has been made in other reviews about how LONG it is.That was not a problem for me. I’m not particularly tall – 5’8″ – and it still hung a couple inches off the ground. It’s also very WARM – and this can be a mixed blessing. In the fall or winter, and perhaps early morning in the summer, it will give you some insulation. I’d imagine that by midday in July or August, however, you’ll probably want it off.

    But it’s a NICE PIECE and I recommend it highly!

    Fits great will keep you safe from the elements.

    Fast shipping

  22. levys65567 (verified owner)

    I bought one of these for a friend and liked it so much, I bought one for me, too! It is a very well made cloak and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

  23. thomasjmorgenroth (verified owner)

    A fine warm cloak! Simple, excellent price, good especially for the Spring and Fall when you want a little warmth in your costume. Might be a little heavy if you live somewhere with hot summers, or light for especially cold winters, an excellent piece for a good price.

  24. drew.koontz30 (verified owner)

    Surprisingly comfortable – even against bare skin (don’t ask).
    The price was phenomenal, and it felt amazing – not at all like a cheap costume cape for Halloween.
    Durable, too. Most impressed.

  25. smj23 (verified owner)

    This is a fantastic cloak and far better than anything I ever expected to find. The design is wonderful with a long body (I am 5’5” and it just brushes the ground) and a full hood. The metal button closure is both visually pleasing and much more functional than the more common tie design. The cut also allows the cloak to rest comfortably on the shoulders without the closure pulling on the neck. The cloak can can be pushed back, draped straight such that it hangs open in the front, or wrapped closed to cover/conceal the wearer’s entire body. The fabric is weighty, durable, and warm without being heavy or hot, and the relatively large size of the weave gives it the look and feel of a garment that could have been made and worn in the days before factory-produced textiles. The color of the green cloak (a dull yet deep grayish-green) is perfect for matching the natural tones of the forest. I only wish I could wear this all the time. Add to all this a great price and fast shipping, and I give it the highest possible recommendation.

  26. davidliszeski (verified owner)

    This is the nicest cloak that I have purchased. It has a nice weight to it, it is very durable, and it just feels nice to wear. It has an odd smell when you take it out of the box, but one run through the wash and it’s fine.

  27. skulhedman (verified owner)

    I was wary of buying a cloak sight unseen, with all the possibilities of differences in material, cut, weight, hang, etc. Well, I lucked out! This cloak is great! I roughed it up and undid the bottom seam for a worn look. It is plenty long and voluminous; I am 6’5” and 240 lbs. and it wraps around me well. The hood is pretty large and will easily conceal your face in its depths if you pull it forward. Haven’t had a chance to wear it out with a costume yet but I am looking forward to it.

  28. tholmes988 (verified owner)

    Excellent cloak — I am extremely happy with this purchase. It is made from high quality, durable canvas material that has a great weight to it and looks awesome. A spectacular addition to any medieval wardrobe. I got mine in black but I’m considering getting at least another one in a different color. Highly recommend.

  29. William Emge (verified owner)

    Awesome quality cloak! Just got mine and it was better than I was expecting. Heavy duty canvas for durability, definitely something that will last a long time!

  30. Manuel Oaxaca (verified owner)

    Durable, sturdy cloak. If you’re looking for a versatile cloak you can’t go wrong with this one. Worth every penny.

  31. Shannon Jones (verified owner)

    A great cloak – good weight, shades my eyes without being too heavy for the Arizona Renaissance Festival. Well made and sturdy; good solid cotton canvas, not cheap polyester, with a comfortable fit. I would highly recommend this cloak to anyone needing a simple, nice and great-looking cloak to round a out a RenFaire/Medieval/Fantasy outfit!

  32. Sean McCallister (verified owner)

    It looks good and it seems pretty solidly made. Can’t beat the price.

  33. jennyval7 (verified owner)

    This definitely exceeded our expectations especially considering the price! The material is thick, sort of burlap-like. The stitching is solid and the color is consistent throughout. We have been so pleased with this product that the big kid is ordering one in a different color.

  34. beniboyelf (verified owner)

    Ordered this because of the coupon offer, was super excited to find out its a great cloak. not too heavy but not so light that it wouldn’t be good for anything other than aesthetics. if anyone’s looking for a good cloak for their kit I’ll likely send them to this product.

  35. V.V. (verified owner)

    This is such a great cloak! It’s a quality piece.

  36. ryan_cortes (verified owner)

    The fabric is nice but sturdy and has a little weight to it which adds to the appeal imo. At 5′ 11″ it sits about 2″ off the ground at just the perfect height for me. The hood itself is wonderfully oversized like you’re cosplaying Darth Sidious and there’s a button with a neat little design that it holds together with. Very good quality, especially for the price. It will also surprisingly keep you warm if you wrap up in it… as I may have fallen asleep in it and found that out personally.

  37. Charles (verified owner)

    Excellent cloak. Made from a very durable material. Looks great.

  38. rrusselburg02 (verified owner)

    Very well made. Didn’t disappoint at all. Will be ordering another

  39. Kelly Jones (verified owner)

    This is a great cloak for the price! The canvas is sturdy and it just skirts the ground (I’m 5’6″) which gives a lot of flexibility of I want to hem it shorter.

  40. Ellen Moore (verified owner)

    Nice material, good weight. Goes well with all the stuff.

  41. yahshuwadavid (verified owner)

    This was the first product I purchased from Medieval Collectables! I was looking for a cloak in town to use for LARP as well as nature walks, it was a struggle finding one so decided to purchase one online. Medieval Collectables was a perfect choice to get me started! The cloak was exactly what I was looking for. I purchased mine in green, I live in Portland Oregon , so there are a lot of forest parks to walk around in and LARP/use your imagination in. The quality is very durable and not too heavy, very easy to layer and the draw string for the hood is a nice touch. I have long dreadlocks so the hood fit perfect on my head, for a person with short hair it, you will have nice room! Overall a dream come true! My first cloak I ever had was made out of polyester and I would wear that thing to the park like everyday with pride, with this Arron Canvas Cloak I can go out in public with a sense of historical pride!! I have already been stopped by many passer buyers asking “Where are you from” and “Where did you get that awesome Cloak??” yes I am happy!!!
    If your on the fence on this product, DON’T BE. Totally worth it, totally customizable “add your crest, add your symbols” very very very fair price!!!
    Thank you Medieval Collectables for helping make my medieval dreams come true!!!

  42. cshatley (verified owner)

    It has such a rugged, natural material and that pretty clasp. I only bought it because it was on sale but I am so happy that I did.

  43. John C (verified owner)

    This is the best cloak! Cotton and comfortable. I’m going to collect more colors.

  44. richie1232 (verified owner)

    Aesthetically this cloak is fantastic! Function… there is some that is left to be desired. It’s too light for a winter cloak and the fabric is too loose to stand up to a heavy rain. I’ve treated the fabric to try and make it more waterproof but have yet to test. On the positive on cooler nights this cloak has proven a fine addition to my outfit and has kept me comfortable for hours on watch.

  45. Nathanael Flores (verified owner)

    Exactly what I was looking for. I waxed it for extra water resistance and the wax took to it well and made it look that much cooler.

  46. John (verified owner)

    Love this cloak! It has a nice weigh to it. Very well made and love the button on it. Will probably order one in gray.

  47. John Urbanski (verified owner)

    Absolutely stunning, especially for the price. Comfortable material, beautiful cut, and heavy-duty but lovely clasp.

  48. Ellen Moore (verified owner)

    Nice-looking (blue) heavy cotton canvas cloaks. Our little girls (10 and 8) wanted cloaks they can keep for a long time and these cloaks have everything they want and everything I want: they’re pretty (for princess endeavors) and sturdy (for more rugged use and longevity). Win-win!

  49. Macenzie Watson (verified owner)

    Amazing quality!! Durable and thick. I’m 5’4 and it just touches the ground so it’s perfect.

  50. Glenn Turman (verified owner)

    Love the cloak/ I ordered green and it was a little more greyish green but like it never the less. I am 6′ 1″ and it is about 2″ off the ground. It is a loose weave and should be fine in warmer weather. The clasp is a little iffy and I may need to do a little extra sewing to make sure it will not come apart. Overall I am happy with the purchase.

  51. Danimal (verified owner)

    This cloak is great! Fits well and is quite comfortable. I ended up waxing it to make it waterproof/resistant and it absorbed the wax well and definitely helps keep the water off

  52. Kimberly Queener (verified owner)

    This is a nice sturdy cloak that I bought for the Renaissance Faire. It’s heavy duty, and I haven’t yet worn it in the rain but it appears a bit water repellant! Nice cloak!

  53. eakrantz (verified owner)

    Very nice cloak, pretty heavy, theres a large seam that runs down the length of it unfortunately, but otherwise looks and feels great

  54. Thomas Woods (verified owner)

    Got the brown one. Perfect color for the look I wanted. Fits great and feels great. Nice sturdy materiel but not to heavy when worn. Long cloak. I a 6′ and the cloak is only a few inches from the ground.

  55. Tyler Ehrig (verified owner)

    I ordered two of these. One in green, one in black. The fabric is a great middle weight. Not too heavy but not so thin it looks cheap. The sewing on the button hoop is not great as others have mentioned. I’ve had to resew one back on and I have not actually worn it yet.

  56. Anthony Brittingham (verified owner)

    I purchased a brown one of these and I couldn’t have asked for anything better! I was skeptical about it being canvas thinking it would be thin or easy to tear but there were no such problems. It’s decently thick, flows to just above my heels (I’m 5ft 8in) and completely wraps around me. It is also quite warm, which is a bonus for colder weather where you need to stay warm but wanna stay in costume. I’d definitely recommend it!

  57. Ellen Moore (verified owner)

    2 of our teenage sons wanted these for their winter gear. Since the weather has turned, they have worn them nearly every day (and also use them for blankets). I don’t know why people stopped wearing cloaks…
