- radio pouch
I have a few different radio pouches for my Yaesu, Kenwood and Baofeng hand held radios. Anyone who uses them knows you end up having to fiddle with them throughout the day. Having the flip down function without having to take the radio out is amazing! I love this and will buy a couple more. But!!!! The only downside, and maybe this is something they can update for the v4 model of this pouch... the Velcro straps at the top and bottom of the back (for velcro’ing onto a shoulder strap) cannot take molle behind them. This makes it a 3 space molle attachment which in my opinion isn’t enough for the extended battery handheld radios. With a bigger antenna the radio flip flops and swings because the 3 molle spaces aren’t enough to really lock the pouch down to the cummerbund of a plate carrier. Also the material the molle straps are attached to is soft and pliable which adds to the wiggle when using molle. For v4 if there is a way to get the Malice clips to use the Velcro straps as two additional molle rows I think it would help tremendously. I may try to slice the material between the molle strap and the Velcro to see if I can slide a malice clip through it. That might be the work around. Also, I have attached this with the Velcro straps to the shoulder strap of my ruck. It works REALLY well in that position. I thought it would slide down but it doesn’t. It is rock solid on shoulder straps. But isn’t as rock solid on molle plate carrier cummerbunds...yet. Another request for a v4... cable management. It does work ok to run the cables inside the retention strap and shock cord. But it would be nice to have a better way to run PTT cables, Coax antenna cables, and counter poise tiger tails on and around the pouch. And lastly, one minor request for v4, make it available in Multicam, even if you have to charge extra. This pouch works so well, it is worth the extra money to get a multicam version, especially if you come up with a way to make it a 5 space molle attachement on the back.
I ordered this for my Wouxun KG-UV9D - Mate, knowing that is meant for Baofeng. It fits perfectly on my HT, great quality pouch.
Great case for the baofeng uv5r with extended battery. You can look at radio and change channels without taking radio out of case. Just wish it came with something to use with molly attachment.
Well made. Works as advertised. Fits best with extended battery.
I attached it to my chest rig and it has stayed there... Permanently. And its not going to be moved at all. Im extremely happy with the design and function and will probably buy another very soon. My only negative is that i wish it came in od green but that is neither here nor there. Great work guys!
