Glove of storing states that

The item can weigh no more than 20 pounds and must be able to be held in one hand

The longbow requires 2 hands to be USED, but it doesn't say it can't be held in one hand (And bows ARE held in a single hand while shooting. The other hand just pulls the string).

So can longbows be stored in a glove of storing?

Yes, you can hold a longbow with only one hand, and can therefore store it in the glove. For that matter, two-handed weapons and most items used with two hands can be held in one. This is especially useful for arcane spellcasters that require an open hand to use somatic components.

    \$\begingroup\$ Note that this is a general rule for all two-handed weapons, and freeing a hand by holding a two-hander in one is an important maneuver for, say, every mage with a staff. \$\endgroup\$
