The hooded max cape is obtained by combining a max cape with a max hood. It is available to players who have attained at least 99 in all 27 skills (it does not require 120 in Dungeoneering, Invention, or Slayer). It has an emote which shows off the player's expertise in each skill. The minimum Total Level a player needs for max cape is 2673. When the cape is purchased, it comes along with a corresponding hood, which can be combined to create a hooded max cape. The minimum amount of experience required to wear this cape is 374,968,717.
There are two ways to buy the cape and hood, the first way is by locating Max. He will move from location to location in eastern Varrock. Once spotted, Max will offer to sell qualified players this cape for 2,673,000 coins, which is 99,000 coins (the price of a typical skill cape) times 27 (the number of skills). The second way is to simply just buy it from Elen Anterth in the Max Guild.
The hooded max cape can be used to teleport to the Max Guild an unlimited number of times provided the owner has completed Plague's End.
Although the Max cape might be considered to be the second best cape in the game (first being the completionist cape), there are some exceptions worth noting:
- The god capes from the Mage Arena provide a higher magic bonus (31 vs 26).
- The TokHaar-Kal-Ket provides a higher melee style bonus (31 vs 26).
- The TokHaar-Kal-Mej provides a higher magic bonus (31 vs 26).
- The TokHaar-Kal-Xil provides a higher ranged style bonus (31 vs 26).
- The Reefwalker's cape provides a 200 life point bonus and a higher armour rating (62 vs 44).
- The Superior reefwalker's cape provides a 300 life point bonus and a higher armour rating (65 vs 44).
- The Dragon Rider cape provides a higher prayer bonus (6 vs 5).

The colours of a max cape can be customised by using the option in the right-click menu of the cape. In the Skillcape Customiser interface, players have the right-click option on the either of the four colour palettes to get or set a certain colour via the HSL colour algorithm (hue, saturation, and luminosity).
