Messenger Radio Carrier

(24 reviews) Write a Review


  The Messenger Radio Carrier series contains all of the following features throughout the different models we support. The Messenger is a two piece Kydex carrier designed to protect your radio in every way possible. Featuring a "hot-mic" proof design you will never worry about hitting buttons unintentionally. Built with every thought of  weather conditions in mind, this carrier has a quick drain structure and drains one gallon of water in 1.5 seconds, just in case you decide to go snorkeling. While providing a strong structure the carrier allows you to drop your radio in, unmodified (except removal of the belt clip) adjust the retention as desired and be on your way.

    Excellent case with great workmanship, added benefit; s the torsion arm inside, it gives the emd user the amount of tension they require.

    UV -82 C Radio Holster

    Posted by Lee S Rosenfeld on Aug 22nd 2019

    Theese holsters are the best you will find I know because I have looked and gone through 3 different holsters before finding MC Kydex.
    I use this holster for law enforcement and it works very well and looks great too.
    Josh is very willing to help out and goes above and beyond what I expected.
    Thanks Josh and MC Kydex

    Best radio holder

    Posted by David Partovi on Aug 20th 2019

    This is the best radio holder I’ve ever seen. Super high quality construction and superlative design. It holds firm, locks out the transmit button so you can’t hot mic and holds the radio well even when not clicked all the way down. I own a soft carrier by Maxpedition and a buddy owns the ITS radio holder and this one is FAR superior to both. Great product.
