    Hey everyone! I'm new to this forum and I'm also looking for instructions on how to get/make a mottled cloak. I too would like to go rangering one day.

    Well, I would guess that you'd need a grey cloak, then find some brown and green dyes, that you would water down (to make them less strong) and then dip certain ares of the cloak in (following dye instructions).
    That'd give you a mottled cloak with soft transitions and not too strong colours to contrast with the surroundings.

    Great!

    Just be careful with the dyeing though. It can be pretty hard.

    i am working on making a ranger cloak, mottles like rangers apprentice. Any suggestions for what fabric to use? I live in a place where it is normally cold and rainy but can also be hot so i was thinking something light and water proof and i would just rely on clothing to keep me warm. Is there any fabric that is light and waterproof and wont make much noise because all of the water proof material i have seen (windbreakers) is very rustley and would not help to conceal me. Also how would you wear a quiver with a cloak?

    Wool is a classic; most cloaks have been made of wool. As to how you want it to be, that depends on how it has been treated, whether it's felt (strong and waterproof for it's thinness, but not quite so supple) or other kinds (not too sure on the names really).

    A cloak is generally not too hot in warm weather but can be useful in cold weather, because you can wrap it around yourself or just let it hang open.
    As to the quiver, you can either wrap it right round the cloak (easiest but not the best option), have a hip quiver on a belt, which would be inside the cloak, or have a slit in the cloak that would allow the lower straps through.

    I don't understand how you DON'T understand that there are allot of people who like to go Rangering and enjoy wandering through the forest.
