I am impressed with the holster. I was worried at first when I took it out of the box. The holster is kind of big and with the lip around the edge. After I attached the holster to my belt and I've had it for a week or two now, I love it. I have had no issues with the holster. My radio does not pop out and none of the face buttons get pushed. I recommend this holster.
I have enjoyed your Radio holder. It fits perfectly. I have recommended this product to others at the department I work in.
If you’re looking for a radio holster that is sturdy, easy to take on and off, and looks good in your uniform then go with this. First night I used this holster, I ended up getting in a foot pursuit. Normally my radio will become loose or even fall out when running, with the adjustable tightening mechanism on this holster, it didn’t move at all. Quality product and already have more PO’s asking me where I got this product.
I bought this because my other radio holster had open sides and I would have an open mic at times getting in and out of my vehicle. This holster completely eliminated that problem.
This holster is perfect. I was using the ridiculous plastic clip that comes with the radio and that thing is garbage. I don't care for using leather because I'm hard on my equipment so that wasn't an option. But this holster from Long's, is hands down the best piece of equipment I own for regular use. I like the Tek Lok attachment that comes with the holster, but you could easily swap that for something tighter to your body. Radio doesn't move around when you're wearing it and you know it's safe if you have to move dynamically for whatever reason. Stop waffling over this product and just buy it.
This is a fantastic holster for my radio. I was so tired of the basic holster the APX comes with. It twisted and moved on my belt and I always had to readjust it. This holster is snug on my side, doesnt twist or move around, and protects my radio. I highly recommend this holster!
Great radio holster! Solid design and fit is perfect. No issues with moving or coming out of holster. However, would like a "lock in" retention when holstered so I know its all the way in. Took a long time to make and ship, but so far a great radio holster. No issues.
This carrier rocks!!! I have played with a variety of other carrier and this is by far my favorite. it holds our APX 8000 and 6000 radios very securely, and without the frills of additional retention straps of so many other carriers. The carrier protects the radio very well, is secure on the belt especially with the Tek-Lok, and the retention is superb. I use the radio both with and without a RSM attached and it is comfortable and secure. I will say it would be more comfortable with a full duty belt, I work EMS so I only carry the radio and maybe a pair of trauma shears on my belt so it can be uncomfortable when sitting at times. But overall I am very happy with this and will say it is probably one of the best carriers on the market.
Great fit and securement
Anyone who carries an APX radio know the OEM beltclip is TERRIBLE. I could not be happier with the Longs Shadow APX carrier. Despite it appearing bulky, the carrier on the belt, in a bucket seat of a pickup, is MUCH more comfortable than the radio in the OEM clip. As a plus, the radio is provided much better protection from damage in this carrier. I am VERY pleased with the holster and the customer service is outstanding.
