    I bought the combo package and the paddle cover at the same time I ordered my fully loaded KX3 from Elecraft. And this is a must accessory to protect your radio when you are
    using the radio as a traveling companion outdoors. It protects the display and knobs for any damage if you (god forbid) should drop it. 🙂

    I highly recomend it if you are planning to us the KX3 for serious adventure use.

    Great addition to the radio, strong with perfect detail.

    These little gems not only protect my KX3 while in a backpack or suitcase or whatever, they also make the radio look, well, sexy!

    The quality and workmanship are outstanding and installing the side panels was fast and easy. I’m not one to baby my radios and have carried my KX3 in packs with lots of accessories just tossed in the pack to rub and scrape on the radio. Surprisingly the Lexan cover looks fine and is much more scratch resistant than I thought it would be. Its really tough stuff!

    In my opinion the SideKX panels should be supplied with every new KX3 from the factory. Owned since July 2013.

    The SideKX end plates are of high quality and fit perfectly on my KX3.. The covers is also of excellent quality and together with the end plates provide superior protection to the equipment while travelling or backpacking.

    Ordered KX3 end panels and cover and same for my PX3 for delivery to me whilst on holiday from the Uk in Florida. Scott was really easy to deal with, answered all my emails promptly, delivery was prompt and came well packaged. Products are excellent quality and based on my experience in dealing with Scott, I would not hesitate to recommend GEMS products to other Elecraft ops.

    I had the opportunity to pick up the combo kit with the paddle cover for KX3 and the combo kit for PX3 in person from Scott. Not only are the kits top notch, it was an easy 5 minute job. Scott is a great guy to talk to. We talked go kits, mountain topping, light weight antennas. Radios in general. I’m looking forward to the mount brackets coming in. The quality and attention to detail is great. Scott is excellent to deal with. I look forward to GEMS future products.
