A few months ago I began the search for a new compound bow case. After searching for quite some time and looking at many cases, I discovered Legend Archery. I was impressed by the appearances of all of their products online. After looking through their items on www.legendarchery.com I decided to contact them for a compound bow case.
Initial Impressions:
I received the Legend Archery Double Two 44” bow case and out of the box I was impressed in the quality of the case. The pictures on their website are nice but, do not do this product justice when seeing it in person. I could not find a flaw anywhere on the case, inside or out. The fit and finish is outstanding. Not a single stitch out of place or a logo misaligned. Even in areas that the Velcro is stitched did it have a flaw.

I have put the Legend Archery Double Two 44” bow case to the test since the day I received it two months ago. I have stored both of our compound bows in this case since I have had it. In addition I have also transported my bow to 3D Archery shoots, my local indoor range and to and from other venues I have shot Archery. The case has done an excellent job at protecting both of our bows.

Bow Storage:


Inside the outer bow compartment you will find padded Velcro straps to securely hold your compound bow in place. I have really liked this feature for the fact that I do not have to second guess if my compound bow is sliding around. Thanks to this feature I have not worried about the sight or arrow rest being out of adjustment due to sliding and being knocked out of adjustment. With the padding on the straps, there are no worries of the straps causing blemishes in the bows finish or damage to the strings and cables while the bow is in transport. Between the two bow compartments is a thick pad to protect the two bows from colliding in transit. As seen in the picture above the Legend Archery Double Two includes removable cam protection covers. In the outer side the Double Two also has built in cam pockets to protect the cams on longer compound bows. This has made me feel even more secure about transporting my compound bow in this case.

To add to the protection Double Two gives is the hard outer shell on the backside of the case. This gives added protection to the already secure construction.
Transporting:


Transporting the Legend Archery Double Two case is as easy as it gets. The Double Two has an extremely soft padded carrying handle and a wide nicely padded shoulder strap. These two options have made for a very comfortable and versatile way to carry. I have carried the Double Two quite often and have not had a single issue with the carrying strap or handle being uncomfortable.
Storage:








The storage on the Legend Archery Double Two is plentiful. I have not had a single time where I looked for somewhere to store and transport any of my 3D gear to a shoot or the local range. The upper outer storage compartment measures 25-1/2” internal length. The lower outer compartment measures 36-1/2” in internal length. Both of the compartments are padded to protect any valuable cargo. The lower compartment is long enough for most all archery stabilizers. I personally carry my 3D archery hip quiver, one dozen arrows and my binoculars with ease. There is an internal compartment that is nearly as large as the case. I haven’t used this pocket much but, I could see it being useful to carry shooter shirts or other items an Archer may need.
Zippers:

The zippers on the Double Two are worth noting as a convenience. They have the large loops on them which have made it convenient when wearing gloves to open the case. After a long morning Turkey hunt I was able to unzip the case to put my bow in it without having to take my gloves off. This may not mean much to some but, I like to put my bow back in the case after hunting instead of placing it on the ground, back of the truck or where ever else I may lay it. It just gives me more confidence that I didn’t take the chance of bumping a sight or rest as I have in the past. So being able to open the case without taking my gear off was a nice feature to have.
Overall Opinions:
Overall I have been very happy with the Legend Archery Double Two. It has served me very well so far and has shown no wear at all. The Legend Archery Double Two has protected all of my archery gear, has been easy to transport and I would suggest this case to anyone who is looking to purchase a new case. The convenience of the amount of storage has made it easier to transport not only my bow but, I no longer have to carry my hip quiver and arrows separately from my bow. I can only see a great future ahead for this bow case and myself. If you or anyone you know is in the market for a new compound bow case take a look at the Legend Archery Double Two case or one of their other cases. I can only expect the same great quality and features of the Double Two bow case in all of their other products.

Time for an update on the Legend Archery Bow Case.

I've been carrying two bows around in it for right at a year now. I've taken it to shoots, the range, the shop and most recently work every day. Both mine and my wife's bows have been stored in it nearly every day since getting it. I can honestly say this bow case is worth every penny Lancaster Archery Supply sales them for. It has plenty of storage. I believe I have a little over 2 dozen arrows, hip quiver, bino's, 20" and 10" stabs, extra rest's and releases and a 300' tape measure stored in it. It still has plenty of room left for more stuff. It has been a great case to say the least.

Another update. Right at 2 years with the case and I'm at 6 different bows so far being stored and carried in it. I am enjoying it just as much now as I did the first time I used it. We (wife and I) carry 2 hip quivers, 2 dozen arrows, releases, and a bunch of other odds and ends in the case. It's been to many shoots, indoor events and has traveled to a couple shows now.

It has some marks on it from transporting but, not a rip or tear anywhere. All of the zippers are as good as new and all the seams, Velcro and interior straps are all in tacked.

The soft interior has no shown wear. The internal and external pockets have no wear showing either. For a little over $100, it's more than worth it. I'll keep it until falls apart.

The only thing I would change or add would be some sort of textured surface on the bottom side of the shoulder strap. It wants to slip off your shoulder sometimes when carrying it. It's enough to irritate me every now and then. Not enough to keep me from buying another one when the time comes though.

I really hope these updates help as I will keep doing them every 6 months to a year until the case fails.

Thanks for the great review and pictures.

I am in the market for a case for my new Elite Energy 35 and I do believe you just helped make up my mind. A little question for you do, have you ever had bumps or dents caused to your bow because of the soft case. I have always had hard cases and this is my only worry. Nobody around here has a legend case and most shooters use hard cases. So it is hard for me to see or try one to ease my concerns.

Thanks for your info

I haven't had any issues at all with damage. I'm on year two now and am still loving the case. It's been all over the country with me and to every shoot in two years and that's been a ton. I am using to for mine and my wife's Rivals now. You will enjoy it.

Looks like exactly what I'm looking for. I need a soft case for my Podium 37 where I can store stabs, sight case, and whatever else. That might be the one.

I've had the opposite experience with this case. Great looking case but only used mine 5 times in a year and my shoulder strap tore off of the case - the stitching, fabric, and all, sending my bows skidding. The good news is they were protected for the most part; the bad news is the company was not that helpful when I told them the issues. Also had one of the zippers break.. Long story short - I won't buy another Legend and I'll get an Aurora or SKB...

I hate you had issues with yours. A friend of mine has one and is going on a year now. No issues with his and he carries his nearly as much as I do.

Would that bottom pocket fit both a hip quiver and an arrow tube?

Are there velcro for both bow sections, or just the outer?

I really like the new green color they have came out with, I looked at ncstick's case at the ASA at new berry and it looked well constructed. I ended up with a different case only because there was a back log in getting one plus I was hoping for a case in green which they now have so I'll probably be selling my current one to get the double

I've got th single bow version of the same case, and my experiences with it mirror the OP's. I think post #16 says a lot about CS by Legend. That said, it is true that no soft case will give the same protection from slamming a car on your bow that a hard case might. But is it really so hard to exercise just a wee bit of caution with your equipment? Maybe I'm just more OCD than most, but a life time of experience has taught me to pay attention to what I'm doing BEFORE I do it :D

Well, the case traveled all over the country with me this summer and is still on the go. It's traveled a good 40,000+ miles with me. The only place it hasn't went with me was Vegas this past year. It's starting to show some wear on the bottom from being slid in and out of the truck, trailer, van and car trunk but, considering it looks great. I still have not a single complaint about the case.
