Or is this another "almost right" from Windcamp?
Good advice.... back clip shoulda worked :-(
Cage is about the same price as the backpack, which is totally protective BTW.
They make good stuff - but having tried one I just think stuff like that adds unnecessary bulk and weight. VERY nicely made though for those who feel the need for all that in a field radio
The protection you need is a pelican case.
Only thing they forgot is a folding handle on top of the frame.
I throw my KX2 into a zip-locking freezer bag and then into a soft case. Weighs less than a pound in total, no bulk inside my backpack, and I'm done.
73, see you on the air!
I carry mine in a backpack and think this would be a good accessory to protect the rig when it is removed and setup for use. I wonder if Windcamp will have a lexan cover for it in the future?
I use a velcro sealed camera/or lens wrap that gives great protection when the radio is thrown into a backpack. Here is a link:
Again, what's the point of having a "portable" radio when you put it in a huge case?
I can fit my radio, mic, signal stick, tuner, cables, and connectors into this bag. Plus it’s padded for insulation. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KN66QOO/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_35QE8P74S9JS8RBS5WSZ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
