Winterbark Barding

Armor (studded leather), rare

This flexible armor is crafted of hammered cedar fibers, woven with overlapping scales of hardened bark. Typically crafted to fit a horse, reindeer, or similar Large quadruped, though they can magically resize to fit a Small, Medium, or Huge quadrupedal animal of any sort. It protects the wearer as +1 studded leather.

An animal wearing a winterbark barding leaves no tracks and can move through trees and natural undergrowth without impediment, ignoring difficult terrain from vegetation, snow, and ice. The animal can survive comfortably in environments as cold as -50 degrees Fahrenheit and has advantage on Constitution saving throws to avoid exhaustion from extreme cold environments colder than that. When the wearer is attacked by a plant creature or a non-magical weapon made entirely from wood, as a reaction it can gain resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage from that attack. Once used, this ability cannot be used again until the wearer completes a short rest.
