    Another case line to look at is Lakewood Products.

    It's not an ATA rated case but they have a case called a bow file that allows you to have a fully equipped bow, with a loaded quiver, in the case. You put the bow in vertically. Check out www.lakewoodproducts.com

    You can get them right from the company.

    SKB cases are second to none though. I used them for years for PA and guitar amp equipment. They take a beating big time, but are not cheap.

    Default Two bow case

    Best bowcase I have ever ownws and I have owned the SKB in double and single.

    Brownell soft case. Made from Brownell archer.

    If headed on a trip I can carry it all in this case. Many pros use this case and Im glad one took the time to show his to me. Best I have found. Packs easier in cars as well over hard cases. Airline approved and its tough.

    Yeah the SKB cases are something else....
    I still have a couple from the old band days.
    You can drop them from 10 feet and not have an issue.

    Case is fine if your not packing anything else in them. I like the room of the Brownell to pack it in. Also ever case at the airport gets dropped ten feet or more now days. Wouldnt hesitate to drop my Brownell that far.

    SGB makes a nice case.

    I never saw a brownell case. It sounds interesting.
    My vehicle is space challenged so having something that's solid protection that don't take up too much room is a plus for sure.

    WE depend on Brownell Soft Cases to get the job done a ton of room and for the most part superior protection,

    When driving up to 15 hours to a shoot we can easy pack( 3 ) Bows -Apex 7s or Conquest 4s in the 1 Brownell case along with arrow transport tubes, quivers, binoís and other small stuff. Thatís a ton of stuff in one case.

    For airline travel I usually will pack 1 or 2 bows per case with all the other gadgets needed, only once I had a arrow rest that was jarred a little but not broke,

    One of my team mates who believes in his SKB, which also is a top notch case had his arrow rest snapped completely off his Apex when we arrived at the Redding Shoot last year 2008 so the bottom line is there are a lot of good choices but they all can be vulnerable to certain hits and abuse at times.

    Hereís their web site. Not the greatest pictures but it does give you an idea as to how they look and a source to order one. Hop on the site and scroll down a little.

    We really like ours, I still use a standard black plastic bow case for around here locally but when hitting a shoot while traveling any distance these are awesome for packing all your stuff and having a good amount of protection.

    Thanks for the info guys. The brownell sounds interesting. I never thaught of a soft case due to the thinking that it wont protect the bow. But you guys say its great. I might need to see one of those.

    I finally seen the price last night on the .pdf flyer for the case $189 plus shipping. It appears these cases can only be purchased thru the manufacturer as I did an extensive search last night of all the major archery suppliers and came up empty.

    Jeff ole buddy looks like I will be waiting till Wabash to get a gander at your case before I take the leap... I wanna put my good eye on it first...

    That's right you can only get them direct. We tried to get them but they wanted us to pay the same price as the direct price.

    That's a tough one to get items out on the market if there only selling direct... I like to touch and feel stuff I am gonne drop a couple hundred on personally... I think the case sales are probably just a small part of there business so they may not be pushin em that much. They do look like a really nice case in the pics though... I will write a review once I get one in my hands....
