What is the best luggage to carry a bow in.
I put my 35" Prime and a spare Mathews in a Prime soft case, which goes inside my Cabelas Ripcord XL rolling duffle that is about 2-1/2 yrs old along with my pack, boots, and most of my clothes, sleeping bag, etc. I load it to 49#s or so. The bow is well protected by clothes and the bag rolls well....but is no longer sold by Cabelas the last I looked. All optics and electronics are carried on.
Badlands Terraglide rolling duffle works well for compound bows that measure less than about 36" overall length. They stopped making the duffle for a couple years but I see they're now available again. I like the non-camo model for travel since you don't flag yourself as a hunter.

Check out the Everest 40, which is specifically made for flying compound bows.
If you are t asking about flying with bows, I’ve used a SKB case for many plane trips. It’s been flawless.
Sitka Nomad for me.
The Badlands is "pusing it" for even a 34" a to a bow with today's cams. With that said, it is what I use for my travels with a 33" bow. The Nomad is also good and a bit bigger.
When I used to fly West, I used a hard sided golf bag. Padded it with clothing, loaded to just shy of the weight limit. A plus was that they came out at the airport much quicker it seemed! They were long so they came out in Denver on a carousel for long items like skis and other bags that actually had golf clubs! :)
