The one pictured is too large for the HX500 I have bought. I did find one the correct size from here-

I sell those too, but they are not listed on the marine site as I cannot imagine an HX-500 or any other similar sized VHF fitting in one. Perhaps one of the tiny Cobra models.

I have one of those very pouches and found that even my small Ericsson phone did not really fit. Are you sure you have your sizes right? I have used the one linked in my first post many times with Standard Horizon handhelds and they fit perfectly.

Tim,
you need one of these:
http://www.canoesandkayaks.co.uk/pro...o_Case_Aquapac

I've got one and it works well. It's got a 3 way harness so it will go across the body and is fully adjustable. It also comes with a carabiner, so you can unclip it quickly if you need to take it off.

hope that helps,
Tim

According to the dimensions given and measuring my HX-500 it should fit with the aerial and knob sticking out in the two corners.
The one listed earlier measures at 50mm too high going from the given dimensions.
I'll just have to wait and see what turns up, its hardly going to bankrupt me at a fiver including delivery!
Have you tried an HX-500 in the pouch to see if it fits without moving about?

I must change the dimensions on my site, we spotted thank you - those are maximums and the top strap is adjustable.

An HX-500 fits very nicely indeed.

I'll wait to see what turns up then and maybe order one of yours if it doesn't fit. I am sure I can use the other one for something if its too small.
