Anyone have an experience with either or both of these and could recommend one

I have a Traveler and carry it with me every day. Also, the effects taught are worth more than the price of the Traveler itself. All of Jeff Copeland products are top notch so you will never go wrong with one. Check out reviews on his site. He also has an active Facebook group that share ideas.

I have and like both - so much so that I have two of each, but they're two very different animals.
It's kind of like asking someone to recommend an egg bag or a change bag. It all depends on what you want to do with them.

The Quiver is a great switching device - best used IMHO to do "invisible switches" -- that is, switches your spectators don't (and shouldn't) know have occurred such as switching billets and ringing gaffs in/out, or at least time delayed switches vs the immediate visual changes that (again IMHO) put tons of heat on the purse.

The Traveler is a nice basic coin purse with a holdout feature, and as Poof mentioned, a bunch of well thought out material that incorporates and complements the purse.
The jumbo coin production from the purse is a thing of beauty.

I only have Quiver but definitely recommend it Smile having looked at the Traveller I also think Quiver looks more natural.

I think the real question is: what do you want to do with it? They're completely different tools (even though they both masquerade as purses) and it's kind of like asking if someone should get a Scotch & Soda or a Coin Bender.

Do you want to have an invisible switching device that works for both coins and other items? Then get a Quiver.
Do you want a well crafted leather wallet and excellent instruction on basic coin sleights/starter effects you can do with the wallet? Then the Traveler's the best buy.

Do you just want a simple, straightforward, no-frills pouch to hold your coins rather than doing anything fancy? Then you should consider one of these: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/8988

Nothing to knock either one, but it's a completely reasonable alternative as a coin purse if all you want is something to carry your props. Especially if either (or both) is a stretch of funds, or if you're not sure what you want to do with them. I'm a big fan of buying things you think you'll actually use, rather than because it looks shiny or just because you've heard it's good.

If we're throwing alternatives into the mix, Tony Miller's Mobius is also worth serious consideration:

Also a good one, but I don't see it as meaningfully different from the Traveler in this context - a similar "feature" and cost (yes, I realize they're different, but I'm talking about a very high level").

It also wasn't one the OP asked about, and while good to bring up, I was mostly talking about "the third option" of getting something cheap, rather than at the $30 price point.

I too have a question for those who own Quiver who also own I Hate Kids. Could someone PM me?

Bought a Quiver after seeing it come up again and again on the trick of the year thread. As others have mentioned its a very different beast from the Traveller but I will be getting a lot of use out of both. Both are exceptionally well made and brilliantly thought out.

Ive heard a lot of people like quiver, Ive played with it and think its pretty cool. Personally Id rather not have to use a coin purse as for me it isnt something Id have.

I own both quiver and traveler. They both have unique features that encourage creative thinking. Quality of product is great in both. Quiver looks like something you could buy commercially as a coin container, is disarming and very versitale. Traveler gives the appearance (favorably) of a origami handmade coin pocket that generates interest and lends itself to a story of a (ie. craftsman in Mexico). Both have secret aspects that will generate creative working. I am appreciative of the creative effort put into these products. Your imagination and performance style will take it from there. Enjoy your magic.

For me, having both, I vote Kelvin Chow QUIVER!
Why?
Quiver LOOKS like many normal coin pouches!
traveler looks nothing Ive seen. But is disarming.
The gaff of Traveler is good. But for more options and ease of use, Quiver wins head and over shoulder!
I liked traveler! BUT, I have sold the Traveler.
Quiver?...I would never sell, and I might even FIGHT over mine! LOL
End of discussion!

Agreed, I got Traveller but ended up selling it virtually immediately where as I've just purchased a second Quiver as it's that good Smile

Quiver is amazing and very versitile. Traveler is also valuable in a different way. I have 4 Quivers and can switch sets of sets . . . Like deck switching but easier.

I also have both and would be willing to sell my quiver, only used enough to know I didn't really like it

Curious what you didn't like about it? I think it is one of the coolest items available. I even have a photo of my wedding ring I keep in it and after some ring work I put my ring back on my finger, show quiver, the photo, put the photo in and do the visual change with the purse open back to my real ring, which is off my finger when they look. gets a killer reaction.

I have both and I also vote for Quiver.
Traveler is cool with its "origami" style, but with Quiver you can really do a lot of useful changes (I'm currently using it in my CSB routine).
I also have a C-Purse which is similar to Quiver but slightly larger (see http://themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=665552 )

By the way: when I bought Quiver I never received any link to the instructions video.
Obviously it's not crucial, but still I am wondering: is there a way I can get it?
