Are you going to ship them or just freeze them, and then for how long?

Wet tanned will be no problem, even if they thaw out during the shipping the capes will be ok. When shipping frozen raw capes, wrap and seal in plastic, they thaw slower if the air can't get to them. Either line a box with foam insulation board to insulate the cape during the shipment or wrap in fiberglass insulation. If you are shipping in warm weather dry ice is recommended. Nothing longer than TWO-Day shipping, which means it will not be cheap.

I still wrap wet tanned capes in the insulation, keep them frozen as long as possible, but two day shipping really isn't necessary.


THANKS..
