Not really sure what you're shooting for here. Other than 'in universe' materials, attachment methods and quality of build, there really aren't any "restrictions". Really an idea of what you had in mind would help.

Sorry I couldn't resist  :P   No real restrictions other than it must cover your whole back so people can't tell that you don't have armor on under it.  Think safety first, too long and you'll be tripping over it yourself or the people around you will step on it and either rip it off or ya fall.

Kama should be mid-calf at the longest.  I've seen a few that have gone to the ankles but not many.

Three words: Black Leather Cape.  It's a requirement; check the CRLs.

Really, though, all the capes I've seen attach to the armor/ vest at the shoulders, right where the collar armor ends.  As far as size and materials go, I'm honestly not sure.  In universe fabrics, naturally, but beyond that, I'm a little fuzzy.

Something that is high quality.  No thin vinyl or some flimsy or cheap looking material.  I've seen capes made of velvet, duck cloth, canvas, thick cotton, wool, fur, leather...
For a cape, size and length are up to you.  If you aren't wearing back armor, it needs to cover your whole back.  Otherwise it can be as long or short or wide or thin as you want.
I'm pretty sure kamas are up to you too.  Just look around the forums or watch Episode III to get an idea on length.  I've seen guys with Vader style kama-things that go to their ankles.

Keep in mind the term "fabric heavy", capes plus kamas tend to push a kit into this realm. Not that it is forbidden, just discouraged. Kits of this type are scrutinized a little harder for quality.

also, NO Camo Material , so that disqualifies the option of cutting up old camo uniforms and sewing them into a cape. i know that one firsthand.
