I have a character who intends to wear the pelt of a Brown Bear at a particular point in time. That doesn't come about for a decade. I was wondering how badly degraded, or preserved will the coat be at that point.
Its important to mention that the character hasn't worn the coat, it has been traveled through harsh conditions
The pelt will be tanned in the 16th century, packed into a chest, and carried across desert, jungle, and 11 days at sea. There won't be any attempt to deter insects.
The isn't intended to arrive in perfect, or even good condition. I just want to know the plausibility of it arriving intact
