    I lost my quiver somewhere along the way between NYC and Las Vegas, and bought a Kolstein quiver online. It arrived and I was pretty disappointed with how cheap and crappy it is. I am returning it tomorrow and am looking into making my own damn quiver. I'm thinking about a few different leathers for their look and weight.
    Does anyone have experience with this? Do you think there would be any demand for a handmade leather quiver?

    I have made a few using thick natural leather, tanning it and sealing it. They are somewhat like the Weatherly quivers Gage sells. PM me and I will email you details. You can buy from me or I will be happy to walk you through the process if you wish to try it yourself.

    I'd love to see pictures of what you came up with. I was originally thinking Bison leather because, why not. But I remembered kangaroo leather is far thinner and stronger and might be a better option. But deer is pretty easy to get. I'm going back and forth on what material to use but I pretty much have the idea of how I'm going to cut and stitch it together.

    There are some nicer quivers out there. I agree with you that the Kolstein is flabby. Try the Meisel.

    I bought a cow shoulder which is pretty thick stuff. No experience with any of the exotic leathers out there. PM me your email address if you are interested in my design.
