Default BCA Radio w/o back pack

So my family used to use Scala Rider G8 snowmobile blue tooth communicators but we are a family of 6 and ride with 7 usually. They only pair to 4 at a time. So...I broke down and started buy BCA 1.0 and a pair of 2.0 radios.

Problem is my wife hates wearing a back pack. Absolutely hates it. So...no she is ticked at me for these radios. Does anyone have an alternative way of carrying and using these. Our youngest is 10 so she needs to be able to talk to him and the others without stopping and pulling the radio out of some where. I appreciate any ideas.

We frequently just put the radio in a chest pocket and clip the mic to the collar of our jacket.

Inside chest pocket as stated or.......if that doesn't work because of the coat, you could always look at trying a few different beacon harnesses ? There small, lightweight and I'm sure a guy could find one that these radios would fit into??

I carry mine in the jacket lapel pocket and clip the mic to the collier. Problem is the mic has a tendency to fill with snow. The little stick on screens are a must.

For my youngest kid, I clip the mic on the handlebar pad, and tuck the radio into a small windshield glove bag/box. Keeps the speaker close so he can still hear it, easy to reach to call, and the radio is safe from falling off.

If I'm not wearing a backpack or just feel like minimizing the weight in one, I will put the radio in the glove box and clip the radio on the brake line. I use a thin piece of wide weather stripping to help give the clip a soft and secure place to grip. Someday I will chisel a little slot for the radio wire to exit the glove box, but for now it works great. 2017 Ski Doo Gen4 Thanks Thunder Mountain Lodge
