The Cloak of Levitation is one of Doctor Strange's most prominent parts of his attire and equipment. There are two versions of it, a blue and a red one. The blue Cloak of Levitation is the lesser one, worn by Strange during his earlier days, it was later given to his apprentice Rintrah.
The red cloak was gifted to Strange by the Ancient One after prevailing in battle against Dormammu. It was soon destroyed by the monster Zom in combat with Strange, but Strange skillfully restored it soon afterwards in a feat that impressed the Living Tribunal.
During the Empirikul's attack on magic and Doctor Strange's defeat, the Cloak was torn apart by the Empirikul's leader, the Imperator. When Strange managed to be teleported away to safety, he retained a shred of the Cloak, which barely retained its magical properties and couldn't even fly.
Both Cloaks of Levitation grant their user the ability to float and fly, in a much more effective way than using a flight spell. The red Cloak is capable of reaching speeds of 25 miles per hour, though must require some small extent of magic in the wearer to function, as shown when the magic-drained Doctor Strange fell to earth, his Cloak of Levitation unable to be controlled. It's also possible to use the Cloak while standing on it, in a similar way to a magic carpet. Additionally, the Cloak responds to commands and can be directed even if not being worn.
The Cloak can also be used as shield, because of it's durability, offering the wearer some protection, or as a weapon, due to its ability to ensnare opponents. It can also alter its shape, being capable of grabbing onto ledges and take the form of a scarf.
