Cloak of Warmth
Many travelers get stuck out in the wilderness in some pretty bad conditions. A guide named Scout, was no exception. Traveling all over the wilderness near the Tsalagi Mountains, Scout got stuck in some pretty awful snow storms. So he and a mage friend came up with a cloak that could keep you warm in all sorts of weather. This cloak appears to be normal size, with a hood. Scout's cloaks were normally made of sturdy wool and lacked much decorations. Later on his friend made cloaks of fine silk and with many decorations for this richer clients. The cloak itself doesn't do much until the wearer speaks a key word (usually designated when made), then the fun begins. The cloak does several things. One, it keeps the wearer at a constant temperature of 65 degrees, regardless of the weather outside. Two, it turns into a small, one person tent that will keep out the weather. It isn't comfortable, a person really can not spread out, but only curl up inside, but better then nothing. Third, the cloak allows fire to be made inside and the smoke magically disappears without harming the person inside. So if water needs to be melted or something needs to be cooked, a person could do so. This cloaks are fairly common, especially near the Tsalagi Mountains, but it one is commissioned it will cost nearly 2000 gold.
