When Harry, Hermione and Ron got captured and taken to Malfoy Manor, leaving all their belongings behind in their tent, where was his invisibility cloak?

Why didn't they use it as part of their plan to escape? If they did leave it behind, how did they get it again?

  • Before escaping from Lovegood's house, they used the cloak then disapparate. And before the part where the snatchers came for them, Hermione hid it inside her magical concealed purse. – Invoker Jan 28 '17 at 5:07

They were storing the Cloak in Hermione's magic purse. Presumably it was in there the entire time they were in the Manor.

Before capture

But he scarcely heard Hermione: he had pulled out his Invisibility Cloak and was running it through his fingers, the cloth supple as water, light as air. He had never seen anything to equal it in his nearly seven years in the wizarding world.

During capture

As they had lost Perkins’s old tent on the night that the Snatchers caught them, Bill had lent them another one. It was now packed inside the beaded bag, which, Harry was impressed to learn, Hermione had protected from the Snatchers by the simple expedient of stuffing it down her sock.

After capture

Harry bent down and the goblin clambered on to his back, his hands linked in front of Harry’s throat. He was not heavy, but Harry disliked the feeling of the goblin and the surprising strength with which he clung on. Hermione pulled the Invisibility Cloak out of the beaded bag and threw it over them both.
