As a complicated garment, tailcaps require Complex Clothing to be researched and can only be made at tailor benches. A tuque requires 20 of any leather, and 1,400 ticks ( of work to create. Fabrics can't be used to create tailcaps.
The tailcap is made leathers and/or skins, unlike the tuque which is made with wools or thread.
The tailcap is essentially a tuque made with leather instead of fabric, to the point where it is largely statisically identical. Thus, the differences between the two pieces of headwear come primarily from the materials that are used to make them rather than items themselvs. Note that while the tailcap has a lower base HP, leathers typically have a higher HP factor.
Leathers thrumbofur tailcap provides almost as much protection as a steel simple helmet while also providing exceptional cold insulation. Guinea pig fur, chinchilla fur, and heavy fur also buck the trend by providing top tier cold insulation.provide better armor and worse insulation compared to fabrics. Typically however, the low base armor of the tailcap means that even with the leathers' higher armor, it is still too low to provide meaningful protection, thus a key advantage of leather is negated. There are exceptions to both generalisations however - a
Thus, when deciding between the tuque and the tailcap, it largely comes down to that stats of the textiles are available. For ease of comparison, see the table on the Textiles page, as well as the material table below and on the Tuque page.
