Equip From Item Menu During Hunts

Equip From Item Menu During Hunts

You can equip a mantle or place a booster down by selecting it from your item menu during a hunt. You can check the menu at the lower-right corner of the screen.

Don't Forget To Unequip When Effect Expires

Mantles take a while to recharge before you can use them again and this cooldown begins after you remove the mantle. Make sure to unequip it as soon as the effect expires to automatically start the cooldown.

Use "Tool Specialist" Skill To Lessen Cooldown

The "Tool Speciality" skill can be used to lessen the recharge time of both mantles and boosters. If Specialized Tools are important in your gameplay, it's recommended to have this skill equipped & activated.

What Gbizz said.

This is click bait. No one needs another site telling us how to get mantles from the base game. And this doesn't tell you what quests you need to get the upgraded versions in Iceborne.
