Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum, and to Archery as well!
I hope this is the right place to post this! :shade:

I took a course last season and now have decided I'm gonna buy my setup. I will stick to the outdoor/indoor range for now, simply target and 3D, and later on field archery.
So as I'm looking through everything I've come across a small question that I've searched around here and google for an answer to.
I'm currently looking for a quiver, a lot of good words about the Easton Target Quiver, so I was looking at this one: Easton Range Lite Quiver. http://www.lancasterarchery.com/easton-range-lite-quiver.html

If I do in fact get this quiver (many users said to get a field quiver as it won't bother the shooter next in line like the target quiver will). No matter which quiver I decide to get, is a quiver belt absolutely necessary?
If I go for the Easton quiver, is the Easton Belt necessary? http://www.lancasterarchery.com/easton-quiver-belt.html

Can I not simply use my own belt at home? Will it not fit properly? etc..? Do all of you shooters use a belt to hold your quiver. If a shooter has a quiver and other accessories (extra packs, bow holder, etc.) then I understand the need for the belt. But for now as a starting archer, looking only for a quiver is it necessary?

Thanks in advance !!

Just my take on it but a quiver belt is much more convenient. Yes You can use Your pants belt but too me I take a lunch break so nice to just slip off my quiver on its own belt and hang up on rack / over back of chair etc. Indoor shoots go to sit at table just slip it off. No backing my pants belts out of pants loops etc. Sudden Emergency #2 You will really want the quiver on a belt!!! Just a convenience item and one I will never be without. Plus they don't cost much at all. Get one You will be glad You did!

IMO I dont use a quiver belt but just a SEPERATE cheap belt from dollar store. I have my normal belt on, then just have the other one on like a quiver belt

Thank you all for the quick response! I will try out the cheap belt idea, then make the purchase as rcr7mm recommended!
Thanks again!

you can't even get a leather belt for 12 bucks, you might as well get the easton to match the quiver. I wouldn't worry about the next shooter in line, if he's standing that close, ask him to get out of your bubble and he's bothering YOU.

I use a separate belt and it's just more convenient than threading it onto my pants belt. The belt I use is a Craftsman 2" Work Belt ($5) and it works great because it's designed to take the weight easily and it's got a lot of adjustment.

I use a leather work belt from rural king as my quiver belt. Definitely worth it. Go ahead and get the matching belt, you will be glad you did.

Interesting that you brought this up. Just yesterday I changed my belt on my hip quiver.

I'm still using an old quiver my dad used back in the late 60's. It had a clip on it that clipped to your normal belt. I hated that clip with a passion.

So yesterday I just happened to find one of those nylon type belts with a large plastic buckle in a box. Removed that clip, inserted the wide belt, and life is sooooo much better now. Much more comfy and just better all the way around.


Happy Shooting.

i use a belt that came out of a safety harness that was included with a tree stand i bought. many people just toss those belts because they use a vest. it is a wide nylon web and the buckle is one of the cinch type that has infinite adjustment...so as i eat more fried chicken i can let it out, and when i don't eat fried chicken i can tighten it up.

I went to Menards and got a webbed belt for a tool pouch. It has a quick connect buckle on it. I think it was around $5.
