Looking for a bow case for my son for Xmas and I haven't been in this market for a while. I have a Pole Mountain that I love but it looks like they no longer manufacture their hard case. I am not interested in one of the luggage style cases but just a good solid airline approved hard case for transport and travel to protect a parallel limb bow. What is everyone using these days?? Thanks Kip

I have two SKB cases and both have worked great for protection and have survived baggage handlers at several airports. The older of the two I am considering selling. Let me know if you want to look at it.

X2 on the SKB case. However, they can be damaged by baggage handlers. They damaged mine in Atlanta coming home from a bear hunt. Delta tried to have it repaired but could not so they bought me a new one.

I have the Plano version from WalMart. I took it to Canada the last 2 years with no issues at all. For about 100$ it works for me. I shoot a Mathews Monster, and with the bow, arrows, and my quiver, I still have room for lots more stuff. My HHS harness and a few extra sweatshirts fit nicely.

Skb double

From: bonehead
skb double lets you pack lots of clothes/gear and so have one less bag to check

SKB I think mines a series 1 cant remember ,seems tuff enough ,kind of heavy, has wheels for rolling through the ports, I can pack along with all the bow stuff a weeks worth of thermals, socks, underwear and small video cameras! kinda spending but so was the bow and everything else in there MikeC

I also use an SKB case.

Thanks for all the is appreciated. I have an older SKB and agree they are pretty tough cases, this one just wont fit a newer parallel limb bow. I was just wondering if there was a latest-greatest case out there I haven't heard about...Has anyone used the Lakewoods Products bow cases? thanks again!

I love the Lakewood Bow Case. It loads from the top so you don't have to move it to remove bow, the quiver stays on the bow, and you can pack a ton of clothing in it with the bow when traveling.

From: wkochevar
loprofile, have you put that case on an airplane?

Just ordered a SKB for myself. Merry Christmas.....

Can normally get good prices on SKB cases from Optics Planet. Check their website & prices.
