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.

    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 !

    Exceeds Expectations

    Posted by Nick on Aug 7th 2019

    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.
