The Fallible Invisibility Cloak

“We are talking about a cloak that really and truly renders the wearer completely invisible, and endures eternally, giving constant and impenetrable concealment, no matter what spells are cast at it.” (HP & the DH’s, pg. 411 US version) - Xenophilius Lovegood

J.K. Rowling: Dumbledore, who could perform magic without needing to say the incantation aloud, was using ‘homenum revelio’

The special cloak that Harry possesses is a real hallow. As we know the Potters is a descendant of Ignotus Peverell, the third brother who chose to hide from death with the cloak and it was handed down generations and finally to him. On why can Crouch (in the form of Moody) see through it, it is not his ability but the magical eye. Also the dementors found Harry not because they could see them, remember they are blind? They can only sense human feelings and even Harry is under the cloak he is still human that’s why. I think JKR hasn't explained this yet and I don’t want to invent anything that is utterly false, but the question is that ”What’s with the Magical eye?”. It’s difficult to believe that JKR overlooked this part and that this is a mistake, maybe someday in an interview she could answer this. I think that the Deathly Hallows also have flaws and weaknesses, like the resurrection stone (who couldn’t successfully resurrect life), the elder wand(Voldemort couldn’t use the wand well because he isn’t the real owner & Grindelwald, the real master of the wand was defeated by a powerful, still regular wizard,  Dumbledore.) and finally the invisibility cloak wherein the magical eye could see through it and in HBP, Malfoy attacked Harry under the invisibility cloak and that the spell harmed Harry. Nothing is perfect, not even the beauty of death. The cloak is like any other normal invisibility cloak only it doesn’t fade or lose its powers over time. Dumbledore said, it was just a tale and as said in DH that the hallows were not that unique, but probably made by clever wizards and no more unique than any other magical objects.
