    Default Radio harness

    Got a question about the XL Boston Leather radio harness... I'm 6'4" and I have the regular size strap but its a little short on me so I'm looking at purchasing the XL strap. I was curious though if it will "over stretch" my mic cord? Are the mic loops in the same place or are they farther up the strap because its a longer length? Thanks.

    Shouldn't be an issue. In fact, I'm 5'10" and wear an XL strap. I hate having the radio right at my hip and wear it further down my *****. My brother is also 6'4" and wears an XL strap and hasn't noticed any problems.

    To add, I am 6'5 and use an XL strap. No issues with the mic cord. I went with a Sav-A-Jake strap though. Much nicer quality. Softer leather. But the Boston Leather ones they issue us. They will work fine.

    Ok I'll have to keep an eye out for those. I lucked out and the store in my city that sells firefighter equipment happened to have one XL strap in stock. Not anymore though lol Thanks for the help brothers, everyone stay safe.
