The Hagoromo (Official name: New Magical Cloth Type 5-F), also known as Celestial Robe or feather cloth, is the main equipment of the Runaway Spirit Squad Personnel and Vintage. It has been shaped like a type of cloth using a gel created from magical nanomachines so that it can be very flexible.

It can be reproduced by using the user's magic, expanding, shrinking and transforming without energy loss. It also gives new devils the ability to fly in the air. The hagoromo has also shown other abilities, such as creating substitute dolls that creates an illusion to look exactly like the person it is portraying as (demonstrated by Elsie), playing back the events of the close-past (demonstrated by Haqua) and even see people's desires (demonstrated by Nora). But these abilities depends on the skill level of the person. This is shown when Elsie, a dunce, can only use the first ability, and not the other two.
