Use

The Quiver is a vibrating bullet that comes with 10 different patterns and vibrations. It can be used for vaginal insertion, external stimulation of the prostate, or for teasing the erogenous zones. It is not suited for public use like some other bullets are. It can be used vaginally while engaging in anal sex or using a butt plug. It should not be used for anal insertion. It is small and smooth with no flared base. It can also unplug from the controller, so this could not be considered a base either.

The Quiver is also an easy-to-travel-with toy. It can detach from its controller to both fit a smaller space and eliminate the chance of it turning on during transit. It is not too loud, but background noise like a fan will ensure privacy. The controls are minimal and simple; they are welcoming for users new to toys. More experienced users may find this toy a bit dull since it has nothing new or exceptional to add when compared toys of its class. Still, this could be an option for those buying a few toys to experiment.

Material / Texture

The Quiver is made of plastic. Plastic is a quality material that is above jellies, rubbers and blends and a step below pure silicone and glass. It is mostly smooth with the shape giving a change in sensation. It is hard and unyielding, but the smoothness mixed with lubricant can make it slip from fingers. The plastic is non porous, so bacteria cannot thrive inside the toy. While that is the case, bacteria can collect in the seams of the toy. The bullet is shaped like a bell when it is hanging from its cord. It flares out toward the bottom giving it that shape.

Toward the flared end there is a seam that goes around the bullet. It is not very smoothed out. It can be felt easily by fingers. The seam catches a bit if you run the bullet with a small amount of force against the palm. This could be an issue for some users, especially those who are more sensitive. Lubricant can ease insertion and possibly reduce the chance of irritation.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The overall design of the Quiver has a minimalist feel. The controller is basically a tube with a button and port. The bullet is its simple bell shape. The no frills design has its own type of appeal. More color options would probably make the Quiver more popular among users of all genders.

The dimensions specified on the product page are accurate. The controller is large enough to fit comfortably in most hands. The cord is long enough to be inserted and used unhindered in most situations. The bullet is small and not intimidating. In terms of discretion, the Quiver very much looks like a sex toy. In terms of sound, it is about 2.5 Bees. In some modes, it has a whining sound that can be distracting. Background noise can cancel this sound out. When traveling, you can unplug the bullet from the controller and throw it in a purse or bag. You can also put the toy in a sock to further hide it.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Quiver has one button that does all. The button can easily be accessed by the thumb. The Quiver has 10 patterns. It also has a memory of sorts. For example: if you turn the Quiver off then on mode 1 it will be on mode 2 the next time you turn it on. It seems that turning it on again counts as moving it forward another mode. If you happen to like one mode the most, it can be a bit annoying to shift through the other patterns. The 10 patterns are as follows:

1. High standard vibration
2. Medium standard vibration
3. Low standard vibration
4. Accelerating coaster
5. Weak, low Pulses (whining sound strong)
6. Stronger pulses
7. Faster pulses
8. Medium strength pulses
9. More rumble pulses
10. Super weak pulses

Hold the button for a couple of seconds for the toy to turn off. The vibrations range from rumbling to buzzy depending on the mode you use. It has a top strength of a solid 3 vrooms, which is average to good for bullets this price and style. The Quiver is not advertised as waterproof, so it is best to keep the controller as dry as possible.

The Quiver takes 2 AAA batteries. Inserting the batteries has a learning curve. The battery cage can be removed. Once the batteries are in, replacing the cage can take a bit. Once you get it the first couple of times, it becomes easier. To prolong the life of the toy, remove the batteries when it is not in use.

Care and Maintenance

The bullet can be detached and washed with soap and water. Take extra care around the seam. You can use a toothbrush or your nails to get at the seam. If the controller needs to be cleaned you can use a wet wipe. Both silicone and water based lubricants can be used with the Quiver.

Once dry, the Quiver can be stored with the rest of your toys. Plastic is very inert and doesn't react with other materials like silicones. It is best to keep the Quiver from direct contact with porous toys. It can cause cross contamination.
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Quiver comes in a small, relatively slim, blue box. There are no raunchy pictures or naked people, which is always a plus. There is a transparent window for the toy, so it is not discreet. The packaging is minimal but it is not marked as recyclable. There is a small paper insert containing instructions. It has helpful information about the battery cage.

You can use the packaging as long term storage, but it is not intended for it.

Personal comments

What do I have to say about this bullet?

It's okay. It is one of hundreds of bullets out there. There are no special characteristics that make me want to choose this bullet over another. It doesn't make it a bad toy, just one of the crowd. I would recommend the XOXO bullet over the Quiver, though. I think the XOXO has a better quality and feels more finished and thought out as a toy. The Quiver feels a bit unfinished and rushed in its construction.

The Quiver is not a bad purchase for someone wanting to try bullets or toys in general. I rather spend twenty dollars on a toy I try and end up not liking than a hundred on a high end toy I didn't like. So there is a place for the Quiver. I just don't think it is for the average user.
