Sitka has partnered with Mystery Ranch to introduce the new Ryder Bow Case, designed to transport bowhunting gear with confidence while featuring the timeless, hardworking style of a proper gear bag.

Mystery Ranch x Sitka Ryder Bow Case closed.

“We wanted a soft-shell bow case that offers trustworthy storage without looking like an oversized convention tote bag,” said Brad Christian, Sitka Studio Creative Director. “So we collaborated with Mystery Ranch to design the Ryder, a case that secures your bow, organizes your essentials, and looks worthy of housing the rig you spent all summer tuning. I couldn’t be more amped with how it turned out.”

“We’ve always wanted to build something with our friends down the street. Tim Sakai, our Mountain Product Manager, had the passion and put that energy into the Ryder bow case,” Director of Product, Dana Gleason III added. “The basics of this project were easy, but through countless tweaks, Tim and Brad forged this magnificent case into something that we are proud to put our names on. This collaboration with SITKA STUDIO came out far beyond what I dreamed we would do together.”

The Mystery Ranch x Sitka Ryder Bow Case has a large main compartment designed to accommodate compound bows from a variety of manufacturers and features three daisy chains with removable rubber hook-and-loop straps for easily customized, anchor-tight storage. The inner lid of the case has two mesh pockets and a large, padded pocket, each zippered, to store quivers, an arrow tube or extra layers. The exterior has an additional padded, zippered pocket in Sitka Subalpine camo and two zippered mesh pockets for accessories.

Sewn from 840D Ballistic Carbonate Coated nylon, the Ryder is weather-resistant and padded on the top, bottom and sides to keep delicate gear protected. The back of the case features eight web loops for lashing down the bow case or hanging it from a garage wall; stretch-woven, cam-securing corner protectors; and a removable, quick-adjusting shoulder strap with an easy-to-use thumb lock.

The Mystery Ranch x Sitka Ryder Bow Case has an MSRP of $379. For more information, visit
