I got the opportunity to review a Quivver, basically a little over the shoulder bag for protecting your money, phone, and keys while you adventure. To me, it looked like the perfect solution for carrying important, small items while I SUP.
And the more I used it for my many SUP adventures, the more I liked it. It’s big enough for important items but still small enough that it never becomes too heavy or burdensome. In fact, I would mostly forget I was wearing it.
The Quivver has three zippered pockets with options to attach more gear. I used it to keep my phone, keys and credit cards/cash dry and safe and really like how secure it feels and how lightweight it is. I also like that the shoulder straps adjust and can be converted from an over the shoulder pack to a fanny pack, though I’m not going to rock it as a fanny pack anytime soon. But it’s an option for those of you who love a good, functional fanny pack.
The only thing I don’t like about the Quivver is that it was next to impossible to take photos with your phone while your phone is still in the Quivver (which is an important feature for me when I’m out on the water). I ended up using the Quivver mostly for keys, credit cards/ cash and using an Overboard phone case for my phone, attaching the caribineer to myself or my board. It does work well for your phone if you only plan to text or check in once in awhile.
And while I like that the design is super minimal and simple, its not something I would necessarily describe as cute. I definitely think they could benefit from making a Quivver with more feminine colors for any outdoor enthusiast ladies, who like me, love when gear is both functional and cute.
If you’re looking for a great way to keep your stuff safe and dry whether for hiking, traveling, biking, SUP, kayaking, or whatever else you may do, check out a Quivver.
Stay sweaty friends!
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received the Quivver for free from North Fork Gear as coordinated by Outdoor PR in consideration for review publication.

Nice little writeup on the Quiver. Is it totally waterproof? Would it work just lashed down to the deck of a board (with bungees or whatever)? I always end up just stashing my keys somewhere, and wouldn’t like to wear anything extra, at least on hot days…
