There were two types of cloak in use; the sagum and the paenula. Both seem to have been some sort of brown or yellowish-brown color; apparently a particular type of wool was preferred, its natural oils making the fabric nearly waterproof. The cloak doubles as the soldier's bedroll on campaign.

The sagum is rectangular, blanket-sized or larger. It is simply pinned with a fibula at the shoulder or throat.
