Bearskin Cape

Wondrous item, uncommon (requires attunement)

This shaggy bearskin pelt retains the bear’s claws on its dangling limbs, and the bear’s head and jaws are fashioned into a terrifying hood. Wearing it grants you a +1 bonus on Athletics checks to Grapple, Shove, or Trip an opponent, and it also grants you a +2 bonus to Armor Class if you are wearing light armor or no armor. If wearing medium or heavy armor, it grants you a +1 bonus to Armor Class.

When the hood is raised, you gain advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks based on scent and gain a +1 bonus on Wisdom (Survival) checks to track creatures by scent. The bearskin cape also disguises your own scent. Creatures trying to track you by scent have disadvantage on Wisdom (Survival) checks, and beasts with Intelligence 2 or lower treat you as if you were using a sanctuary spell. You gain advantage on Charisma (Intimidation) checks against such beasts, as long as they are not larger than you. If the hood is lowered, your scent returns to normal.

If you use polymorph, a druid’s wild shape, or a similar ability to transform into a bear, you gain 1d6+6 temporary hit points.

These are lost if you transform into another shape or back to your own shape. You cannot use this ability again until you complete a long rest.
