Default How Do You Carry Your Two Way Radio On Your Person?

I did a did of quick searching and there are a lot more available than I anticipated. Several hold two radios and some of those have other pouches for GPS, cell phone, etc.

I am ever so tempted to get the High Visibility Radio Vest for when I am out horseback riding. However, I think I am better off getting the two items separate from one another. Specifically, a high visibility orange vest and a separate radio chest pack. It actually isn't a bad idea, though. Also, I have been looking for a vest with LED lights. There are good ones, which are expensive, and inexpensive ones, which don't last. I may have to just "suck it up" and get a good one, even if it isn't cheap!

Anybody use a leather case with a swivel when carrying their radios when off duty?

No offense taken, I feel that if you need more than 6 rounds of 357 magnum, you are either a poor marksman or a terrorist.
And i have a AR15 with a EOTech for that.

Yes actually that is my preferred carry method of my radio's when I wear a belt. I have a Motorola leather swivel holster (NNTN4115A) best $30 I have spent . In the winter I either clip my radio to my jacket pocket located front left chest or I wear a radio strap. In the warmer months I wear the radio clipped to my belt on my left side and a speaker mic either running up to my sweatshirt or behind my back and clipped to my shirt in the front. I almost always carry a speaker mic as it is very convenient. I have considered the chest harness for some events and it is probably a good idea however I have yet to try it out.
