Girdle of carrying ( [ )
Item Type Girdle
Artifact? No
Weight 15s
Danger Level 1
Material Leather

A non-cursed girdle of carrying increases your carrying capacity while worn.

  • Uncursed increases by strength x50 stones.
  • Blessed increases by strength x100 stones.

A cursed girdle will actually halve carrying capacity.

It appears as hard girdle or thick girdle when unidentified, with the latter being more common.


They are useful to players who wish to carry more equipment more easily, which is usually everyone. Beware of cursed girdles and of monsters which can curse your items; if you are already carrying a lot of weight, you may be instantly killed by being crushed to death by your inventory upon wearing it or receiving the curse.

Cursed girdles prevent equipping/unequipping body armor.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
