Messenger Radio Carrier

(42 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.

    A tad loose but great craftsmanship!

    Figment was just a tad loose for my liking. A couple passes of tape around the battery tightened it up great. Good quality materials. And great craftsmanship!

    Almost made the mistake of buying a soft radio pouch for my little commie Baofeng radio. Then I googled "Baofeng kydex" and these Alpha bois from the Cheese Capital of America popped up in my browser. The amount of options available for the little commie Baofeng blew my mind and when I saw the RTI hanger option, I knew I found the best kydex option available on the market. Reasonable lead time in this political climate and bs virus hysteria. Top tier craftsmanship and they use quality material and hardware. Now my little commie Baofeng hangs securely from my plate carrier.

    Great carrier, very solid very well build. I'm hoping to get many years of use out of it ..I have a few more radio that I need order for and MC Kydex is a different winner
