A winter cloak is a type of cloak designed to keep the wearer warm in cold weather. Compared to plain work robes, a winter cloak provides more defence, magic strength, and magic defence, but substantially less agility (but still more than standard Muggle clothing).[1] Winter cloaks could be purchased at Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions[2] for one hundred and fifty Sickles.[1]. A black winter cloak with silver fastenings was required for all Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry students, and expected to be worn as part of the school uniform in colder weather.
