The Salomon Custom Quiver is a lightweight pole-quiver designed to hold your hiking/running poles. Furthermore, the quiver is designed to access, or pack down your poles easily.
I had the opportunity to use the Salomon Custom Quiver during a 50-mile ultramarathon, where I paired it with my foldable Black Diamond Distance Carbon Z poles. The quiver was attached to my S-Lab Sense Ultra 5 Set running vest from Salomon as well.
I’ve tried several quivers, and I was impressed how easily I could pack, and unpack, my poles thanks to the broad opening in the quiver. Apart from the clinging noises, I couldn’t feel the poles on my back, which was a big plus.
The same year I embarked on a 14-day hike, and I brought along the Salomon Custom Quiver and the Black Diamond Distance Carbon Z poles again. I attached the Quiver to my hiking backpack, the Bergans Helium 55 ltr… Yes, I love lightweight hiking!
Attaching the quiver to the side of my backpack proved to be a game-changer. With the quiver in place, I no longer needed to stop walking, take off my backpack, pack my poles down, and then put my backpack back on. Instead, I could effortlessly fold my poles together and slide them into the quiver while still walking. This was an absolute joy and made my outdoor adventure much smoother and more enjoyable.
In conclusion, the Salomon Custom Quiver is a highly practical and versatile accessory for hikers and runners. Its lightweight design and broad opening make it easy to access and pack down your poles quickly and efficiently without disrupting your outdoor activities. From my experience during a 50-mile ultramarathon and a 14-day hike, the quiver proved to be a game-changer, allowing me to focus on my adventure without worrying about packing and unpacking my poles. Whether you’re a runner, hiker, or both, the Salomon Custom Quiver is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a hassle-free way to carry their poles.
