The cloak of protection is an item that appears in NetHack.

Effects

When worn, a cloak of protection provides 3 points of base AC (plus whatever positive enchantment it has) and MC3.

Strategy

No other single piece of armor grants MC3 by itself, making the cloak a strong option for characters without strong ranged attacks, and a viable choice for the ascension kit, if you can do without displacement and have another source of magic resistance.

Variants

In Sporkhack, wizards always start with one of these instead of a cloak of magic resistance.
