Plano Protector Compact Bow Case Review

Screen_Shot_2013-06-11_at_4.32.41_PMIf you love hunting or archery, then you may have had those moments where you cannot carry everything with two hands. I know it because it happened to me. If you have tried shooting at an outdoor range, you’ll know what I mean. There is nothing more irritating than gathering all your archery gear like you’re carrying a bag of groceries. What’s worse is that you may even lose some arrows along the way.

Luckily, there’s an affordable bow case that can solve all of your archery storage needs. It is the Plano Protector Compact Bow Case. It is a hard case that has enough space for most regular size bows and its accessories. Since it has a hard exterior, it can protect all your archery gear from external damage.  Let us take a closer look at what it can do.

The Exterior

The Plano Protector Bow case comes in a cardboard box. As you peek inside, you’ll see some bits and pieces along with the case. You can assemble it so that it will fit your bow. Just set up the case and the arrow holder and you’re ready to go.

The case is hard enough that it can provide sturdy protection. However, I would recommend only packing it into your car and not using it for air travel. While it does have a “Pillar Lock” feature, I would not gamble my bow being thrown out of the case when it suddenly opens. You can try it but I choose to stay in the safe zone. Also, be warned that the case is neither dust proof nor waterproof.

The Interior

On the inside, you’ll be able to see around 1 inch of foam that provides just the right cushioning for your bow. It is spacious enough that it can hold most bows and have extra space for accessories. In my experience, the space is just right for the bow. So be careful when placing it. It has to be properly centered lest you want to damage your own bow when you haphazardly close the case.



You can get the case for a really low price of only around $30-$35. That’s cheaper than most bow cases out there. The great thing about this case is that it serves its purpose at a rather affordable price. It’s sturdy, spacious and has enough space for everything.

The Verdict

If you’re looking for a spacious but compact and sturdy bow case, then this is it. The best part is that it does not cost that much. You get a good protecting hard bow case for only a fraction of the cost of other bow cases.
