I don't work on LE anymore but everyone is free to use this mod however they wish. -K
This mod changes the non-HDT cloaks from Cloaks of Skyrim into HDT cloaks upon entering your inventory. 
You can use them for your player character and give them to your followers.

I was using Cloaks of Skyrim - HDT-PE - Fixed by bola08 and while it worked well for the player,
it would glitch out for npcs pretty heavily in my game and make my comp chug in cities. 

This is my attempt to alleviate those issues and contribute to the community that has contributed so much to me!


These cloaks behave exactly the same as bola08's. They do not affect npcs. If you want the full replacer, use his.



Requires Cloaks of Skyrim & Dawnguard OptionalHDT Physics Extensions, SKSE, and all Skyrim DLC.

COS version: You need both Cloaks.esp & Cloaks - Dawnguard.esp!

CCOR version additionally requires 
Complete Crafting Overhaul Remade 1.7+.
CCOR version: Do NOT load Cloaks.esp or Cloaks - Dawnguard.esp! You just need the files from COS, not the plugins.

Requiem versions - CFR - Cloaks For Requiem or COR - Crafting Overhaul Reqtified.


Drop & pickup the normal cloaks that are already in your inventory to let the script run on them!

If you want to see the cloaks in first person occasionally (when you turn fast), you'll need Skyrim - Enhanced Camera.

Use HDT Invisibility Fix beta if you want to give the cloaks to followers.

Will be compatible with anything the aforementioned mods are compatible with.

  The Joy of Perspective


 now adds Warmth & Coverage to my cloaks!
Next thing to do is to make the spinning wheel change HDT burlap -> HDT linen.

Need to add an option or functionality to change them back to non-HDT when they leave your inventory.

As much as I would love to, I have no plans to apply HDT physics to Winter is Coming and Wet & Cold

I didn't do anything to the XML HDT (clueless) so bola08's words still apply:
The XML HDT needs some work but so far I'm a bit clueless on it.
The lower parts of the cloak jumps a bit.
Still IMHO this is the best HDT cloaks available.

Known Issues

Like many things in Gamebryo, Havok physics are tied to the games frame-rate. As a result, FPS below 40ish or your CPU being stressed tends to cause the cloaks to glitch out. Also FPS above 60 breaks Havok so please use v-sync.
I notice no performance impact but 
if you have a laggy game, HDT cloaks may not be for you.

WaitBusyRenderer=true in enblocal.ini can fix many of the HDT problems. That said, I don't recommend it because it can also have a significant effect on performance.

This mod covers 111 of 121 COS cloaks and 3 of 4 Campfire cloaks; Dragon Priest cloaks, the Daedric cloak, and the Travel Cloak, Fur do not have HDT meshes and are not supported.

FOLLOWERS: While I find they work well on followers, some people report that they turn invisible on changing cells. This seems to be an issue with HDT physics & Gamebryo regarding NPCs. **USE HDT Invisibility Fix beta**

UV MAPPING: These meshes have the same issues that Cloaks of Skyrim suffers from. The UV isn't mapped properly and texture sets aren't used. Not a huge issue for this mod but something to be aware of.

BODY HDT: Not tested with any body HDT. KNIGHTMARE077 has body HDT working with my cloaks. Pick your body mod.


If you want the full replacer, you'll find it on Lover's Lab - Cloaks of Skyrim - HDT-PE - Fixed by bola08.

Big thanks to Chesko for guiding me through the script!

I believe I've finally found the original author but forgive me if I got something wrong. Google Translate can only do so much.

bola08 for fixing the meshes & CTDs
ManWhoLaughs for translating from Korean
kenn/Thor for the initial fixes and work on the XML
MortredL, the original author of the modified meshes & XML
Noodles for his wonderful Cloaks of Skyrim

Permission to port to SSE is now open. Just credit me and my credits.

Thanks to the many people who worked on the HDT part of this mod!
