So what quivers do you use? Looking for a new one to replace my cheap bohning, leather perhaps.

Me and bow quivers don't get along. Most clunk in one fashion or another.

I've been using a hip type quiver for the past ten years. Quality leather quivers are not cheap. Mine is no longer made, but surely Fred Bear carrys other you'd like. I like easy in, easy out. So that knocks out the sprig tension type. Just a standard poke 'em in is fine with me. I do use a Uncle Mike's nylon belt, snap over buckle.

Could you please show us a picture? Thank you.

I use a bog standard / common all garden cordura 4 tube hip quiver on a decent leather belt.

I've been an archer since 1986 and it's the only quiver I've ever owned. Now that is value for money.

What is the brand?


purple easton quiver

Almost bought a silver one.


Whoops. Did you mean hunting or target quiver.

Target Sonny, should have said. The vista's still available?

the shorter length, nock rearward easton is good , even if a bit pricey here. the longer nock forward ones trip those less tall like myself, over out on 3d ranges. there's a matching belt available, works well. good quality and worth the price. i settled for the grey/silver, the only colour available at the time. 12 months use and holding up well.

I'm sorry, I have no idea. It was bought at a local archery shop, so is probably a proprietary brand or one they had made, but similar quivers are sold at just about every shop and also online.

The Easton quivers are nice as are some of the WinWin quivers, but mine's still going strong, so, I'll stick with it.

Some of the newer ones look too high tech for my liking.

If I had the money I'd probably get a badlands hip quiver, but currently using something by PSE, which is serviceable but not great quality.

An alternative that might be worth considering is getting a cordura sheath for a 22" machete and, if you like, adding a few pvc tubes.

Didn't know about them. Would be made well.

If you want a nice Leather Quiver without breaking the bank. A Neet NT-2100 $69.99, a NT-2300 $84.99 or NT-2300 Basket Weave $99.99 is hard to beat.
Prices from Lancaster Archery Supply.

Would have liked one but the shipping to Australia was a bit rich. I've imported bows for the same $$.

Sorry. Didn't notice you were in Australia. But Neet Quivers are not sold in Archery Shops in Australia?

Yes but just out of my budget.

Add another $15 - 25 for shipping.

I dont use a hip quiver, but made a little arrow holder to shoot in the backyard. 2" pvc pipe a foot long, and a scrap peice of 1x8. Pre drill some holes at an angle, regular dry wall screws into the board, and a piece of packing foam in the bottom of the tube. Free's me up, nothing on the bow or the hip. Stable and doesnt tip over. just a thought.

Been wanting to pick one up for 3D - An Easton would be nice, but not in the mood for dropping that much on one, only shoot a few a year so far - but would come in handy for target. Cabelas T2 line don't look that bad, Vistas are out there and the Bohnings are still nice in my opinion. Have borrow a friends a few times, no complaints.

Also marketed under the 'Sportsman Outdoors' brand too I think.

I use a Black's Creek Sliver Quiver. I have the option of having it on my belt or a shoulder strap.

I have a bino carrier, but don't use it.

Any reason?

Almost bought a vista but the one I purchased had a belt, etc, for the same price. No tubes on the modern vistas though.

Destroyer

Understood. I've been looking at monocular's in an effort to cut down weight but there nothing here I can lay my hands on to check quality. There is plenty on eBay but its difficult to research.

I don't understand what the problem is with the bohning quiver. I have a small bohning quiver, left hand that I wear on the right side. I like my arrows facing away from me. I think I paid 15 bucks for it. I did buy a bohning pouch for my stans but nothing expensive or flashy. I'm not looking to impress anyone, including myself, unless it's at the next target. JMO but I think the ones that bring the bling are there to be seen as much as anything. I don't have a 1600 dollar bow that's all flash. It kinda makes me laugh when I see guys out shooting with an expensive bow and quiver wearing sandals, shorts and a tank top with their bows name on it. Ask people that have the expensive easton quivers what arrows they shoot. lol

Nothing wrong with it, I just wanted something better and with a belt, accessory pouches, etc. If I bought just the belt and a couple of pouches it would cost more $$ than getting a whole new rig with the shipping to here. For example, I found a vista belt on ebay which was under $25 but the shipping was over $40!!! :eek:

Thanks Sonny, its not what I ordered but I'm starting to come around on it slowly. Its a little bit darker than that photo and works good. I just wanted a longer quiver and this thing is only 17" on the body, about the same as a standard 19" quiver without the tubes. That's the only thing I don't like.

Make your own, then you can add the bits and pieces you need. Leather is the only way to go. Haven't found anything in the Australian bush that has nylon skin.

Destroyer: That looks like a great set up, I could fill all those pockets and pouches with any amount of cra....errm, essential spares.

Popeye: Welcome. I only wish I had your skill. I have made simple leather items when I was doing some falconry, but that belt and quiver are art.

BTW: I went to a knife show last week and found a company that was selling leather with camo and other designs laser printed on it. Now there's an idea for some gear.

NeilMac. The best part of DIY is that you can make the accessories to suit your needs. I have a water bottle (600ml), utility pouch, compound bow stand, pocket knife, arrow puller and the quiver. I have four tubes that will hold at least 16 Platinum Plus XX75 aluminium arrows. They hold much more of the acc arrows. If things get too heavy during a FITA 144 I have a shoulder strap to assist in taking the weight. In the case of leather, a couple of needles and rivets is all you need. The reason my stuff is carved is because I have been doing this since 1964. Have a go.

Yeah same here, it will end up with all sorts of crap then it will be to heavy and I'll end up going back to just a quiver and belt.

That is AWESOME popeye, very nice work! No way I could do that.
