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.

    Exceeds Expectations

    I ordered the holster for the UV-82 with the extended battery. It fits my UV-82HP perfectly. The retention is excellent even with a remote Baofeng PTT attached, and fits with no rattle. I ordered it with the malice clips and the hardware is attached firmly, allowing my radio (with a 42.5" Abbree folding antenna) to sit firmly in place (folded and unfolded) with the antenna routed through a compression strap on a Mini MAP on the rear of my PC. I may swap out the small Malice clips that came attached for longer ones to suit my needs with the long antenna, but otherwise this is an excellent piece of equipment.

    Fits perfectly

    Fits Baofeng radio perfectly. Snug enough to stay secure but still accessible to pull out when needed. Would definitely recommend

    Have been looking for a dedicated pouch for the Baofeng UV5 radios for the last year until I stumbled upon the MCkydex carrier on youtube. After receiving it, I have to say that it is the best dedicated radio pouch for the UV5 that I have ever used. Perfect fit and retention (adjustable) and the multicam finish (hydro dipping?) looks very good. Also, customer and shipping service were great and speedy (8 days shipping from the USA to Romania)

    Literally amazing, a work of art! Don't even waste your time or money buying anything else. Fits perfectly with any Baofeng UV5 series and PTT, no adjustment needed at all. Snug and secure when mounted to Molle. Just buy it already!
