Messenger Radio Carrier

(21 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.

    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.

    Superb engineering.

    This product safely and securely holds my Baofeng UV-5R (with extended battery) yet easily pulls out in order to adjust radio settings. This product is exactly as advertised and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for not just a holder for your radio but one that can most likely be in a tough environment.

    Radio Holsters

    Posted by Douglas Theriault on Aug 13th 2019

    I ordered 2 holsters, the UV82 and GT3WP versions along with the Bladetech Tek-Lok mounts. The radios fit perfectly and kept stable and secure in the duty belt. These holsters are built very well and retention is adjustable for perfect fit. Great product !
