A penance skirt is a piece of armour that requires level 60 Ranged and level 40 Defence to wear. Through participating in the Barbarian Assault mini-game, players who earn 375 honour points in each of the four roles, and who have killed the Penance Queen, can purchase the skirt from Commander Connad, located on the main floor of the Barbarian Outpost.
The stats for the Penance skirt resembles those of the red dragonhide chaps; in comparison, the defence bonuses are slightly lower, but the ranged attack bonus is one point higher. The Penance skirt is usually used for cosmetic purposes or as a display of the wearer's skill, as it is significantly harder to obtain than chaps.
If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory. However, the item will be unusable and must be repaired with 20,000 coins by using the item on Perdu.
