Marine handheld small enough to fit in life jacket?

I bought a Standard Horizon HX851 handheld VHF, with GPS and DSC, but it has one problem I didn't anticipate - it's a bit too bulky to wear when I'm single-handing and moving around on deck so I don't tend to wear it.

An alternative idea would be to get a really small handheld, that would fit on my belt without getting in the way (or inside the life jacket). It wouldn't have GPS and DSC, but it'd be better than nothing...

Any thoughts?
