From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

The Orca Bolero is a piece of clothing in Splatoon 3.

It is a 2-star item produced by Toni Kensa and comes with the primary ability Ink Recovery Up. It can be purchased from Man-o'-Wardrobe for Cash 9,980 or from SplatNet 3 Shop for Cash 14,970.


The Orca Bolero is a long-sleeved black bolero worn on a thick white shirt. The bolero consists of visible patches of black synthetic fabric sewn on the shoulders and bottom parts of it's baggy sleeves, with the rest of the garment being extremely dark gray. The front features two black buttons and a high collar, obscuring the inner garment's portion, making it resemble an orca's belly. The bolero's rear possesses a black hood with it's inside covered in gray and a black net pattern. The shirt's collar sticks out on the top slightly, surrounded by the hood. A red Toni Kensa badge is sewn onto the left sleeve.

The Orca Bolero comes with Ink Recovery Up as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Clothing (with the exception of Ability Doubler). As a 2-star item, the Orca Bolero comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Man-o'-Wardrobe for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the Toni Kensa gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) and a lower chance of rolling Sub Power Up to fill its secondary ability slots.
