If you're talking an Armor bonus, 2000gp.

Other bonuses cost different amounts, and dodge bonuses are supposed to be off limits to magical effects.

and reminder, thats just for the armor bonus. you still have to pay the base cost of the cloak.

...granted if you're paying 2000g for a cloak a few silver wont really matter much to you ;)

I was right! It was about 2000gp

do the effects of a ring +1 to ac and a robe +1 to ac stack or not?

It depends on what type of bonus it is.

A +1 armor robe and a +1 deflection ring would stack.

as far as I know they do.

I got a guy with a +1 Ring, a +1 Amulet, and +1 Bracers for +3 to AC at only 4000gp

I thought I would follow up these two posts with some specific details. I would recommend checking the SRD. Similar bonuses do not stack and most have different costs. That is why you see "armor" bonuses and "deflection" bonuses and "luck" bonuses and a bunch more. Each is slightly different. It is also why an Amulet of Natural Armor +1 is 2000 vs. Bracer's of Armor +1 are only 1000. Also note that costs go up by the bonus sqared, thus the amulet and bracers are 8k (2*2*2k) and 4k (2*2*1k) respectively.

Somewhat related, always keep yourself aware of the type of bonus a spell or item has. The Mage Armor spell uses an "armor" bonus, thus does not stack with Bracers of Armor. The Shield spell uses a "shield" bonus, which stacks with armor. If the type is not listed, it stacks with anything, including other unnamed bonuses. But be sure that the type was intentionally left off and not left off due to lack of knowledge of the author(s).

In general, the version of the SRD I linked to is a good one. Use it often.. but only for good, not evil. ;)

Was this directed at me or anyone reading? 'Cuz the bonuses are Deflection, Natural Armor and Armor above, respectively.

No, that was not directed at you. It was a general statement to encourage people to utilize the SRD when possible. Sorry about the lack of clarification.
