      Improved Back Quiver Strap
      Our archery season can see big temperature swings in a day. I might start out with a jacket in the morning and end up in a t-shirt by the afternoon. These constant changes in bulk make having a well adjusted back quiver a chore. Having to adjust the strap length by adjusting the leather thongs at the bottom of the strap is cumbersome and time consuming. Often (because I am too lazy to adjust the strap), my quiver hangs too loosely and swings under my bow arm when I shoot in the afternoon, or chokes me in the morning when I wear extra cloths.

      No more…

      I had a belt buckle on an older quiver that made for easy adjustment, but I had to take the quiver off to do it, and it was bulky. This new improvement is not bulky, and I can make the adjustment while wearing the quiver.

      I used gun sling hardware to make an adjustable strap for my quiver. It didn’t take long to make and works nicely. It gives 7 (+4/-3) inches of adjustment from the nominal length.

      Here is a picture of the new strap next to the old strap:

      And here is a picture of the new strap affixed to my quiver:

      Very practical and very attractive to boot. Nice work. Did you make the original quiver ?

      I got the quiver from Sunset Hill Archery, which is a one-man shop run by Nate Steen that makes tack used in the Howard Hill method of shooting.  I’ve been using that quiver for near 6 years now and see no need to switch.

      I have thought to make another matching quiver so I don’t have to switch arrows between roving and hunting adventures.  If I do make another quiver, it will have this handy strap on it.  The strap sure makes it easy to keep the quiver fitting perfectly.

      Very nice back quiver set up. Do you put anything in the bottom to protect the broadheads, or the quiver from same?

      There is a piece of shag carpet in the bottom of the quiver.  It seems to do the trick.

      I had not thought of using shag carpet for that. I bet it works very well.  Thanks for the info…
