The new and improved Messenger Radio Carrier is HERE!!


  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.

    if you have a standard battery i would still buy the extended carrier, the standard battery fits like a glove! the only gripe that i have is, that there should be an option to get it with mod straps!

    Fits extremely well. Has extended side for the PTT pins to fit in the radio and still be able to fit the carrier. Malice clips are pre installed so all you need to do is literally put it on your gear and drop the radio in.

    Would recommend product to others.

    Baofeng Radio Carrier

    Ordered this product on the advice of others. It was recommended because it didn't require a strap to remain reasonably secure; because it protected the key pad from accidental changes due to bumping. It accomplishes all of that & appears to ride well on the duty belt.

    Excellent Radio Carrier

    Finally a Baofeng radio carrier that doesn't suck! Well built and good quality kydex allows for just the right amount or retention on your radio. No more accidental button mashing if you bump into it. Or if your plate bags rub against your UV-5R when worn on the inside of the cummerbund like I do with my Crye AVS. Definitely recommend for anyone running a Baofeng UV-5R. Good job mckydex, keep it up!
