Best Crossbow Quivers Reviewed & Rated for Quality
Criteria Used for Evaluation
Evidently, when it comes to any product, like a quiver, one of the most important aspects is the materials. Now, we sort-of touched on materials above. However, we wanted to stress how important materials were. The truth is, crossbow manufacturers have the chance to use dozens of materials. In this, we did not want our readers to choose from products that might be well-designed but from poor materials. In this, each product that you read about today was built from the most notable materials so that, whether you are hunting, fishing, or just enjoying a day of archery – the quiver can withstand the activity.
As much as we might not like to think of it, the size of a quiver is incredibly important! When many consumers first start looking for quivers, they typically want to largest quiver to hold the most amount of arrows. However, this is not always the wisest choice, especially when you consider that these storage holders can be quite heavy after a while. So, when we were evaluating each product for consideration, we carefully looked at each product based on its size. Now, we do know that size can be a bit more of preference-based criteria. So, to ensure that we were offering the best sizing and weight – we consulted with consumers who had the first-hand experience with these products. What you read about today were the best products, noted for their size, alongside the quality of the materials, construction, and comfortability.
Durability – this is one of the most important criteria for us all. I mean, do you want a quiver that, after a few days on the trail, all the sudden, the arrows fall through the bag? Of course not! It was an important aspect for us when evaluating any product for consideration. To measure and gauge the durability, we really looked at the images of each quiver and assessed how durable the bag looked. From there, we started to compare the company’s description of their product with what consumers were saying regarding the durability of the product. Now, when it comes to quivers, durability can come in many forms. This may mean higher quality materials better stitching, and even reinforced materials on the interior part of the bag. Additionally, and a common one to say the least – warranties and guarantees are always an indicator.
Since you will be wearing a quiver, or potentially holding, depending on the one you select, it’s important that you purchase one that’s comfortable to hold and/or wear. With that being said, we wanted to make sure that each product that made our list had some degree of comfort infused into the design. Now, given our experience, we knew what to look for. We wanted each bag to have adjustable straps, the padding on those straps, lightweight features, and even comfortable materials to hold. So, as we scanned each product, we assessed these different facets and even consulted with customer reviews to ensure of this. So, if you want comfortable quivers – these 10 are the best of the best!
For us, one of the most important parts of the evaluation process has to do with the cost and value. If you look above, for each product, we talk about the idea and insight that we gathered behind each product. Now, the purpose of understanding this criterion is really to help us as consumers get our money’s worth for a purchase. Now you might be wondering, how can you ensure this? Well, what we do is take the time to look at the entire market of quivers, for this case. We track the pricing for the entire competition – what the highest price points are, the lowest, and the median. From there, we look at each product, knowing the range of prices and assess the quality of the product. The main question we want to answer is: what value does this specific product offer consumers? If we can answer this question, knowing the price point, it’s a valuable option and consideration.
