An elven cloak provides magic cancellation 1 and stealth. It is a faded pall when unidentified. Elven cloaks, along with elven boots, are among the lightest and most common magical armor, making them ideal for polypiling, even moreso due to their ability to be safely enchanted to +7.

Elven Rangers always start with a +2 elven cloak upon entering the dungeon.

Encyclopaedia entry

The Elves next unwrapped and gave to each of the Company the
clothes they had brought. For each they had provided a hood
and cloak, made according to his size, of the light but warm
silken stuff that the Galadrim wove. It was hard to say of
what colour they were: grey with the hue of twilight under
the trees they seemed to be; and yet if they were moved, or
set in another light, they were green as shadowed leaves, or
brown as fallow fields by night, dusk-silver as water under
the stars.
