It also inflicts OPH:Eats raw Carrion, good for a -3 to reactions from anyone who sees you eat and a general -2 due to the vile halitosis it induces.

Not that I imagine Abu Jafar had much use for such a cloak, as he prefered to stay in the Grinning Skull Oasis, where he ate well.* He could have made them for trailblazers, scouts and explorers among the band, especially if they also reduce the need for water intake.

*Note to self, there must be sufficient magical means of food storage, growth, creation and/or transport to ensure a plentiful supply of fresh and delicious food at the oasis. The bandits no doubt kept animals for meat as well as work, but the oasis was probably not large enough to keep them all in fresh meat year round.
