When you are thinking of buying a case or a scabbard for your firearm, there's a few things that you need to keep in mind. Comfort, material, durability, and definitely looks. We have used tons of different scabbards and will break down which are best for comfort and which shotgun scabbards are the most durable.
Whether you're hiking around the mountains or through fields comfort is a something very important and often times people neglect to think about carrying their gun around. I've been pheasant hunting several times without a shotgun scabbard and after a couple of hours, frankly, I get sick of holding my shotgun. Obviously, you need to have your shotgun out and accessible but there are times when throwing it over your shoulder would be a great choice. When deciding which scabbard to choose if you're thinking comfort, you need to make sure that the should strap is adjustable.
The fabric is usually always going to be tough think nylon so your choice might be limited as far as that goes. But the one thing you can control is the length of the strap. Some manufacturers seem to neglect this and don't make the straps long enough to fit comfortable over your shoulder. Molle and Condor seem to have figured this out better than most other brands. Although, both of these brands are pretty plain in design, they have mastered the shoulder strap and their products usually fit and adjust to all body types and comfort settings.
