Examples of Quivers made from a variety of materials

A quiver is a container for arrows, crossbow bolts or darts, such as those shot from a bow, crossbow or blowgun. Quivers have different forms depending on their use: quivers may hang from an archer's belt, from a horse saddle, or be worn on the back. Sometimes, particularly in those that hang on a saddle, the quiver has a compartment for holding the bow itself.

Many quivers have lids to protect the arrows from rain, which can ruin the arrows' glue attaching the fletching. Quivers appear in all cultures that use bow and arrow. One certain archaeological evidence is Ötzi the Iceman, the Chalcolithic man found in the Alps.
