Does the unit come with a pouch or sold separately? How may one attach it to the BCD?
JAMES J No pouch. Very secure clip if you want it hanging from you BC. Also, you can attach other types of clips to it. We have a clip that allows us to quckly reomove the device with rings or clips at each end. This way we store it in a BC pocket; it can't fall out, but it is easily removed if needed.
RUSSELL L It does not come with a pouch. I put it in the pocket of my bcd. That will keep it from getting caught on anything or be in the way until I need to deploy the radio. However, it could be attached by the cord with a clip to your bcd, but as stated earlier, I do not think you would want this.
KATIE S The pouch is sold separately. I did not buy it as I planned to carry the device in a pocket. The Device does have a sturdy metal clip on the back that could be used to attach to a BCD D ring easily and should not risk coming off.
MICHAEL V no is does not. I really don't see a need for one. It's a pretty rugged unit. I just put a clip on it and attached it to my upper D-ring. I do alot of diving in Lake Michigan and 1 time I found myself 1/3 mile from my boat and it was great having that radio to call my wife on the boat
MARTHA W The pouch comes separately & attached with velcro. I got mine after speaking to a Nautilus rep. at Beneath The Sea convention in the N.J.Meadowlands in April. Also, do not hesitate to call the Nautilus company to make sure you are using the device correctly. They are extremely helpful.
PETER R no pouch; there is a belt-type clip that could attach to a D-ring
Scott B It does not come with a pouch. I don't think that is necessary. The case is very strong and any scratches on the outside of the case will not effert perfomance of the unit.
It comes with a very strong enclosed belt style clip that can be attached to your BCD or wetsuit pocket. I added a bolt snap to my Nautalus for added security so the unit con't come loose unexpectedly. It you don't use a bolt snap, I would be sure a lanyard is attached to your BCD webbing as a backup against accidental loss while diving.
FRANK D No it does not. The pouch is poorly designed in my opinion. The strap that it ued to connect to your BC has a very weak, non-locking snap. I managed to modify mine by sewing it shut, otherwise ti makes it too easy to lose the radio.
CARLOS B It doesn't come with a pouch. I wouldn't attach it to the BCD but carry it inside one of the pockets.
MARC C The unit does *Not* come with a pouch.
There are belt clip type pouches sold separately. Leisure Pro here sells a
"Nautilus Lifeline Pouch for $35.99
The unit does have a metal clip attached to the back (but the clip is also
removable) that could be clipped onto your gear. There is also a nice metal ring to which you could attach a lanyard. You could place it in a BC pocket.....but one way or the other, I'd recommend a lanyard in addition.....but that's me.
NICHOLAS U It does not come with the black pouch, and I would not use one anyways. It has a secure, metal suicide clip on the side opposite of the screen. Clip that to your right or left chest d-ring. I've popped it on and off a dozen times now, on the surface in good conditions.
