  tuck it
  Posted by: NateHanson on Feb-14-13 11:58 AM (EST)

On the Astral vests that have a single front panel (Willis, SeaWolf, Green Jacket) I like to tuck the VHF sideways into the belly-pouch that hangs between the waist panel and the chest panel. Tie the VHF strap to your shoulder strap, or a short tether, then just shove the VHF into the belly pouch.

It's totally out of the way, and secure. Yet easy to get at and use. If I am actually using the VHF I just tuck it in between my chest and the top of the PFD for a minute. But 99 percent of the time my VHF is there just in case, so I don't want it poking me in the ear, or jabbing me in the elbow, etc during the majority of the time when I need to have it nearby, but it's not in use.
