    Default Engine crew radio holster

    Hey all,

    Just wondering if anyone has used the True North "Dozer" Harness. I am not a dozer operator, but I do operate Type 6 engines and I am looking for an easier way to carry around the new shelter and came across this:

    looks like it'd do the job, just trying to find reviews on the product, or better ideas if ya got em. thanks!

    Personally, I'm not a fan of "radio bras". Get two decent holsters, one for your line gear, one for your IA pack... I don't know about TrueNorth's stuff, never used it before. We had these chintzy leather holsters...I haven't a clue who made em, but they sucked. The leather held together fine, but the buttons and snaps were constantly breaking. I went through two of them in a single season, and not even with that heavy of use or abuse!
    My opinions might coincide with someone of importance's POV... I wouldn't know, since I never bothered to ask. My policy is: "Don't ask, don't care."

    I have had good luck with true north gear. It holds up pretty well.
    It all depends if you want a radio bra then go for it. Its a personal preference more than anything. I prefer a belt mounted holder with a mic plugged in and clipped at my shoulder

    Dude, stay away from the man Bra's.

    If you just want the Rollin gear, no line pack, get a web gear set up and a big Snap that you can clip it onto the side of your engine. Its easy to take off when you drive, and easy to put on when your working.

    True north is good stuff. Personally I love Wolf-Pack.

    Spiff stay away from the "dozer" pack, it holds your shelter and portable, but it sucks to wear, straps are too small and dig into your shoulders, and it really weighs down on you. Personally I prefer Thielsen's dozer/engine harness, for my shelter and water, just need to get a radio holster to clip onto it, I generally only grab my radio harness (chest style) if im working an RX burn or its a large fir, on the average fire radio goes in thigh pocket, harness gets thrown on the floor of the dozer, just grab and go if I really need it

    I agree with RangerJake, the Thielsen Engine/Dozer Pack looks like a better setup:
