Hi Tim,

We supply these:

http://shop.malthouse-marine.com/ind...=205&parent=48

I can add a floating strap for you if you like?

They are also very easy to attach to lifejackets etc.

How does the holster attach? sewn loops or press stud loops? Can you also give sizes as it doesn't give any on the site.

I have updated the page with dimensions and added a photo of the shoulder strap, which forms a complete loop and the pouch's belt loops then lock into that.

Tim, I think, is after something more like this (but with a smaller pad to take a waterproof packed radio and no metal parts):

That one is not ideal for the marine environment, so I am going to produce a prototype over the weekend.

The set up in the picture sells for around 40 quid, I am sure that the aquatic version will be less.

As for having a good quality waterproof vhf (like the Horizon HX range) close to hand with a buoyancy aid, I am a big fan of this set up:

Let me know how it goes as want it for Lifeguard work and also for on the PWC so needs to be adjustable . VHF needs to be in aquapack and need to be able to swim with it.
Cheers Tim
