Default X1P or PD782G? No available protective case for X1P?

I'm considering purchasing from Gigaparts the Hytera X1P or PD782G as my first DMR HT. I believe the only difference between these two radios is that X1P contains Bluetooth. Am I correct? I'm leaning towards the X1P due to it's small size. However, I noticed that Hytera does not offer a fully-protective case for the X1P, as is available for the PD782G...https://www.gigaparts.com/leather-ca...y-battery.html. I have searched other places and have yet to locate a fully protective case for the X1P. It's very disappointing that Hytera doesn't offer such a case for the X1P and will be a deal-breaker for me. Any ideas on a case for the X1P?

58 views and no comments? Did I say something offending?

Default Case

I rarely buy the manufacturer's case. Those made by Raine are very durable, and I have one for each of my PD782 radios (VHF and UHF). They are not made for specific radios, but there are many sizes and they last better than other brands I have tried, including manufacturer originals.

Nobody I know with an X1P uses a case. They’re quite durable.

Yes, I'm more worried about scratching the display and scratching/dinging the body of the radio.

Will someone please provide the screen dimensions of the X1P...diagonal distance, height and width...in mm please? This is for ordering custom screen protectors.

43 mm w x 40 h, but the top of the display dips down a little where the Hytera label is.

I use Raine stuff too, met the owner at IWCE years ago, we carried his product when we had a paging business. I had a pager case the velcro wore out.

I keep my UHF X1p in one of my front pants pockets when I carry it around with me, practically all the time. I use the optional skinny UHF antenna with it. It fits comfortably enough that I often forget I have it with me.

I don't know anybody with an X1p that uses a case. As Kirk said, they are quite durable.

A PD782G is a brick compared to an X1p. I've owned a few PD782Gs and recently traded them up to the PD982.

My friend who works for Hytera insists the 782 is still the best radio they make. More rugged than the X1P. To this day, when they sell a radio system to a Gov't agency, the 782 is the radio most buy.

I also use the X1p without case. I cut down a brotect airglass screen protector from something else (had a spare lying about) and otherwise don't worry about it.
I have a belt clip for it (the hytera slot in one) but also put a small loop through the hand strap so I can carabiner it to things.
Have used it in some pretty nasty environments and its pretty well made. I also got it for its small size.
