Archer Packer (Large)

Recommended Posts


Hi, all.


I just received my first silicone packer, the Archer, today. I got it online for $55 with free shipping from New York Toy Collective. I have been packing with my old Masho, which I love, but it wasn’t big enough for my liking.


So far, I like the Archer a lot. It is significantly bigger than the Masho, but it doesn’t look TOO big on my 5’7” frame. The bulge is realistic. It is also significantly heavier and denser, which is not a bad thing; it’s just different.

The only downsides to the Archer are the flat-backed testes (anyone else cringe at the word “balls?”) and the stickiness. All of the reviews that I read said that only the back part of the packer was sticky, but the entire package is very sticky. This is not a major issue if you apply cornstarch. As for the completely flat back of the packer, I do miss the feel of the rounded Masho testes, but the Masho is the only packer on the inexpensive side that has them to my knowledge.


I pack with the Archer in the same way that I do the Masho, with a pair of slightly tight women’s bikini style underwear on top of my boxer briefs and the packer in between. This method has always worked for me, and the increased size of the Archer is surprisingly compatible with this method as long as you pack straight down. If you want to pack to one side, you might want a harness.

In summary, the Archer is a good silicone packer for only $55. Would recommend.

Just to clarify, this is the large size Archer. Apparently, the smaller size is in fact very small and would be appropriate for someone a few inches shorter than me.


Etsy also sells even smaller versions that would be appropriate for teens and children. 

It is also worth mentioning that the Archer (and the Pierre, his uncircumcised brother) come in four different skin tones to match your body. I ordered the lightest color, Cashew. I probably could have done better with the next darkest color, but it is still fairly realistic.


Thanks for reading!

I wouldn't worry about "larger size." Most cis-guys would pack with a horse's leg if they thought they could get away with it.


I hadn't really considered adherence issues with a packer before. I know it can be a nightmare with larger-sized breast forms and you're sticking to a much more sensitive area. Personally, with my good ones I used medical adhesive because the sticky back wouldn't hold past a few minutes. Of course that led to removal problems and glue residue.


The point being, thank you for the lesson. I learned something today!


Glad you're happy with your new toy (I say toy because, honestly, that's how a lot cis-guys think of theirs too: "Best. Toy. Ever.")

      The Cheyenne VA hospital is great as far as I am concerned. I have had no troubles at all. My Dr's are fantastic. Unfortunately they have no endo. I will be seeing the one down at the Denver VA. Good thing I get travel pay. Just recently found out that I can claim travel for any appointment at VA based on my disability percentage. My GYN's nurse found out for me.   I feel totally safe when I am at the VA. I use the ladies room. dress how I feel.of course girly.   Kymmie

      Some one hit me with the skills on how to flirt because I am terrible and I know, the new kid just laughs at my miserable attempts, I think he finds it cute that I try. Sadly I am about as smooth as sandpaper. So I tried to get revenge for him dropping his phone on me when it said "Hints" So he was dropping hints on me. So I wrote "Hints on a piece of paper and dropped it on him, for revenge. He was like "Ah, I see your true feelings." And I panicked and said "Ha, no it's just revenge from earlier." He obviously didn't believe me and just laughed. Someone please teach me how to flirt so I can compete, he is a smooth as butter! He is always trying to hold hands so I do it back, He told me to move to the back of the bus with him and I said no playfully and he said "I will kiss you right now if you don't" (Also playing) I froze up ack. I need halp haha

      Welcome to the forum Michaela!    We welcome you with opens arms and open minds, I hope you can find the same comfort I did here

      That's the spirit! Also a good attitude when you're waiting for anything else you care to do while transitioning like getting approved for HRT or bottom surgery if you choose to pursue either of those things. Probably FFS too, but I haven't signed up for that one. I don't want to get TOO pretty. My friends would be jealous. 😘   Hugs!

      Totally agree. I figure, I've been waiting 40-plus years to get this stuff figured out, what's another couple days?
    • Jackie C.
      Ugh, I'm sorry to hear that. I've had that happen before, but it was always an emergency out of their control. Deep breath and remember that therapists have lives and obligations too. Last time it happened to me, my therapist's firstborn was in the hospital so yeah, I cut her some slack. I'm cool like that.   I'm sure they'll reschedule you as soon as they can. Hang in there, it'll happen.   Hugs!
    • secondlook
      Would you believe that my therapist canceled on me 10 minutes before my appointment was set to start? Unreal. I'm trying to be chill about it, so far that's working, but we'll see how soon I can get rescheduled. Good thing it wasn't an in-person appointment.
      yaaaaaaay :DDD

      I have a Carhart work coat that is amazingly warm. It also is great for passing in public, because it covers my torso. I got it at Academy.

      ShawnaLeigh I hope everything goes well for you. Sorry that you've already had to endure surgery there without the results you'd wished for (orchi I mean). Maybe third time is the charm? TA

      Oh yeah, those are really high quality and masculine in their design. They can last for years.   If you are trying to navigate your fashion surroundings, looking for what is worn in your area is the clearest way to get on track.

      My surgeon? I've got just a hair over one more week. Well, a shade under two... Eh, eleven days.   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      Well for @ShawnaLeigh's case, sure. There are lumps. Those need to be addressed and tested for Bad Things. The guy in Farmington Hills does orchis on the weekends for $10K a pop. Jar included. I only know about him because he does the work with just informed consent which is unusual. Most doctors require the standard two gender therapist recommendation letters.   Hugs!
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Yes I told you it would happen.  It was not a welcome thing for me either.  Quite the opposite.  I will pray for you to you know who.

      In some states that is illegal, I don't know about yours.  Mine were sent to a lab that sliced them up to check for cancer which thankfully did not happen.  Sending them for that purpose helps insurance companies have a reason to pay the bills for the Op too.
