I've been slowly piecing together a ranger cosplay kit and this cloak really brings it all together. I went with the leather tie because it felt more "rangery" to me. I have no complaints, but I do have concerns that if you wear it in a way that tugs too much on where the leather tie loops connects to the fabric that it could tear over time. I think the trick is to wear it so that most of the weight is distributed on the shoulders instead of straining the leather tie too much. I am overall very happy with my purchase.
In searching for a cloak for Renaissance Faire for quite some time I was concerned with getting something that wouldn’t fit like you see in the photos, or something flimsy and too thin. Not the case here! It’s a perfectly heavy linen, and smooth to the touch versus something that feels scratchy. Very pleased with my purchase, and to end the hunt for a cloak that I’ll use for all the years at Faire to come.
This cloak was a gift for my daughter, who selected the green with a leaf closure. The design is just as pictured. The fabric feels soft already, and the rich colour is very pretty. The weight is versatile: great for summer or late spring, but a helpful layer in cooler weather, too. She loves it.
Service was prompt, with great communication throughout the process. Package arrived in simple, eco-friendly paper wraps. I can highly recommend the shop and I'm sure we will return.
