    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?

    Again, what's the point of having a "portable" radio when you put it in a huge case?
