This article is about the item dropped by chromatic dragons. For complete item, see Dragonhide armour.

Dragonhide, often shortened "D'hide", is a general name for green dragonhide, blue dragonhide, red dragonhide, black dragonhide or anything made from them.

Dragonhides are a 100% drop of a non-metal dragons along with dragon bones. They can also be obtained from looting impling jars. Adult dragons drop dragonhide of their respective colour, meaning green dragons drop green dragonhide, while black dragons drop black dragonhide. However, baby dragons do not drop dragonhide of any colour.

Dragonhides can be tanned by speaking to tanners, or trading with them. This process costs 20 coins per hide, or 45 if tanning in Canifis. Doing this turns them into dragonhide leather which can be used for Crafting. They can be made into vambraces, bodies and chaps of the corresponding dragon leather type. Each dragonhide requires a certain Crafting level in order to convert into certain Ranging equipment. This is very effective, especially when crafted in large amounts. It is recommended to train to 99 from 57 using dragonhide, as cost per experience point is not much.
