When a Demon Hunter is using a crossbow, he can use a shield or even another crossbow in his off-hand at the same time. But when he equips a bow, the shield is removed, and the spot for off-hand item show a quiver for arrows.

What item can I use in my off-hand?

You can use quivers, which are Demon Hunter-specific items.

Unlike in Diablo 2, you don't need bow ammo. Now the quivers are a way to provide additional character bonuses—most quivers come with a damage boost and other magic item properties.

I've found some quivers give hate regeneration, which is nice. – l I Apr 23 '12 at 12:41
There are a whole host of magical properties that quivers can give. Listing them all would take too long here. – MBraedley May 16 '12 at 13:29
