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.")

      Holy crap I miss a day and I seemed of been the subject of controversy.  My apologies to all since my original posting about a relationship with @Patti Anne most likely sparked this. Maybe not in the way I had hoped. I simply wanted to share my joy of finding her in a place I had not intended to seek anything more then friendship. @KymmieL does know a bit more though so does @Jackie C. and @Maid In Bedlam and @The Viv Element.   It is not so much a secret but something we discussed and decided started to share with everyone but the full extent of our still evolving plans have not yet been fully revealed to open forum.  However it’s no real secret that Patti Anne and myself are in a serious relationship that is definitely headed towards a life long commitment. Yes, Marriage has been discussed, a lot, but no official engagement nor dates or anything has happened yet.  We both felt a strong need for a larger commitment to each other before living with each other since this move is such a huge event in both our lives. Mine especially with packing up and moving 3080 miles across country to be with her.   My roommate, now ex wife Angela is 100% supporting this relationship and has helped me tremendously with plans and packing on my end and she is a true friend in ever sense of the word. (Which still weirds me out.) Though how many people can say their divorce costs then $45 total?  We truly have remained friends.    Patti and I deeply appreciate the support and acceptance from our friends here.    As for today.  I am one day away from my surgery and afterwards there is little else keeping me chained to VT.     As of right now I’m getting out of bed to go share some coffee with my roommate Angela and to wait patiently for my GF to text me.     Have a wonderful day!

      It felt wonderful hearing that especially when I wasn’t even looking for it. I needed it my emotions have been a battle this week. The dysphoria has not been good. It seems my confidence comes in waves. In all honesty the intent of the outfit was to get a little sun I look like a ghost lol. I’m sure my neighbors were wondering and some younger people we know saw me when we were riding they didn’t stop and say anything but they were snickering which is fine I was exercising. I’m getting tired of hiding from the people I know. If the don’t like me that’s there issue. Now I just wish I had that confidence at work lol.  By the way Susan I love your new avatar pic. Errika I just wanted to thank you for your service.

      Having recently taken on the site, forums, and many of the bills, from Dev and because I also want to be fully transparent about the cost of running the site, I feel it's time to update this information.    If you'd like to donate, please do so here.  The months of July through October are pretty heavy with annual and semi-annual expenses and every little bit helps.   Here's the breakdown as it stands now:   Chat:  $10.00 monthly. (Stu now runs the Chat)   Forums:  $45.00 every six months (February and August, effectively billed in January and July). Resource Locator:  $50.00 yearly, payable in September. Email Delivery:  $10.00 monthly. Server Rental:  $30.00 monthly. Security Software:  $90.00 yearly, payable in October.   Total Monthly Breakdown: 69.20 / month.   Now then.  I'm on a fixed income, which means I know what it's like not having a penny to spare.  If you're not in a position to donate, please don't feel guilty; I didn't take over here to turn a profit.  The lights will stay on.  Donations are very much appreciated, but they are not a requirement of membership.   Petra Jane

      Just one thing to think about which I have found with leggings Kay . I am UK size so won't quote actual sizes because of the difference but I found that I needed one size larger than my optimum waist size because of the size of my calf muscles.   Tracy

      That was going to be my next thought.   It's pretty difficult to figure out (for me) where to tweak the colours for some of the boxes on the right hand side backgrounds. I was kinda hoping that the Firefox Dark Mode option would resolve most issues.   Ah well, back to the drawing board. 😪

      To some degree this probably happens to many of us transitioning with and without spouses although I never heard it referred to as a ‘pink fog‘ stage. Obviously, before coming out fully about wanting to transition to female to my wife the topic just was never brought up. Shortly after coming out though, we seemed to talk about nothing else. So much so that we talked about a [future] time when transition, gender, and all of the issues it creates would not be a part of our regular discussion throughout the day. I’m really not sure that will ever happen. Now that we have become quite accustomed to our life as two married women, we no longer worry about it like we once did.  My wife and I find enjoyment with several support groups where gender issues are the main focus. Plus, we are both involved of online trans communities that we really enjoy. It hasn’t got to a point where a ‘pink fog’ has detrimentally affected our lives. If it ever starts to interfere with our life together, I’m sure we would make some changes in our day to day although I’m not sure what those changes would entail.   My Best, Susan R🌷

      Thank you Kay!  My wife and I have been married over 30 years, and more than half of those she has known about, and supported me.  Last year I came out to her fully that there is more to this. i have mentioned to her that I want to go to therapy, but she insists that it don’t need it.  In one of our discussions she mentioned “MTF runs in the family “ (I have a cousin that transitioned many years ago), it may be that she is worried that I will end up going to a therapist and starting the transition that day? When it comes to money, she controls it, and I have learned that I need to ask before spending it or risk her anger. Kay, please let me know how things go with you and your wife and your approach for therapy.  I too don’t want to go behind my wife’s back, but I know that I need therapy.   Thank you Kay ❤️   Janae

      Youre on the right  way  and thats  great  . Just take  this  ONE day at a  time  and dont try to rusch things in the hope things will get better faster.  And whatever you do DONT for one second  think that suicide is  the right  way to go as its NOT TRUST me on this.      And above  all  if you feel bad again DONT be afraid to come back here  and  also seek  help and support from the profetinals if needed  youre NOT alone  Rosalina

      @michelle_kitten Great response and some great advice!! ...I especially like the parts in bold in your well thought out post.

      Wow!  this hits so close to home, its almost as I had written it myself.  Going on 2 years now since coming out to my wife (only), but not really being able to talk about it because it always gets uncomfortable.  I can dress at home (mostly in private) but similar "boundaries" about  going out or going farther .. not really sure I am ready for that yet anyway so its not a big issue so far. I received a similar threat of "leaving" if I transition, but recently she denied she ever said that (I didn't forget), so maybe that is a hopeful sign. I recently made a determination that I need to open the communication again.  Big reason is I want to start therapy, and I don't want to do it behind her back.  I am hoping she doesn't see it as a threat but an opportunity for me to get my arms around my gender identity.  Hopefully it will include her at some point too .. and I feel unless we understand and support each other, it will be difficult to continue without one or both of us being unhappy in this relationship. Thank you Janae for posting this .. I too feel I am fortunate to have found this forum. Wishing you all the best in your journey

      I'm really glad you're feeling less down these days, Rosalina.  It's rarely an easy thing to transition, what with roadblocks and family issues and self confidence issues and everything else.  Just take it one day at a time, and every day that you can stand tall is a good day.  And every day when things look bleak, don't stop trying for better, and know that you can come here and find solace with friends who understand.  Take care.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      I missed my morning cup cuz spent the whole night up and spent most the day trying to rest with the neighbors blasting music that was so loud, the house vibrated from the bass. Looks like I got two black eyes, I'm so tired. But need coffee otherwise I start getting a headache. Use to be terrible, drinking up to 5 cups easy. Now I can barely have 2. My gut can only take so much abuse from acid.

      Depression is indeed a beast. Debilitating, paralyzing. Coupled with the shutdown, it makes things difficult. You feel trapped, no way out. Kellysinclair101 I sort of understand. I was homeless in the Boston area, living out of my car, for over a year. You have to have faith in yourself that you can find a way through this. Keep us posted on how you're doing, okay? 《《《 Big hug 》》》 TA
    • TammyAnne
      The best way. I'm jealous. Once upon a time I could drink coffee any time I wanted. Now it's just the early morning two cups and that's it. TA

      I have been having difficulty concentrating on things for the past few months. Today I was thinking about this more and it kind of felt like I was in a fog.  So I guess I have heard the term Pink Fog before I suppose, because I went ahead and googled it and came up with this post back in 2009 (oddly I could not find it here, but it looked like it was posted in this discussion group back in September 2009.   “Have many of you ever go through really bad pink fog stages where all you can think about is your gender issues? It seems like every two months or so this strikes me with a vengeance and I struggle to keep everything together. I am going through a pink fog phase at the moment and it is bitter sweet, I love the feelings and emotions I am experiencing and yet at the same time feel I am being smothered by a heavy weight of frustration.   I am struggling to keep on top of this and carry on with my daily activities, it's not so bad during the day when I have work etc to distract me but at night it is more difficult. Have you had these feelings and if so what do you do to manage them? My wife is very supportive but I can't talk to her about this as it makes her uncomfortable - I have already tried. It is so confusing and I just wished I could find a middle ground whereby I can be Rachael whenever the urge is there without being obsessed by the whole thing. Normally I am okay with being transgendered - love it in fact, but during these periods I find it a struggle as it makes me feel vulnerable and a bit lost.  “   Wow.  Yes, I couldn’t have described it better, or said it better, - same thing exactly but more frequently than every 2 months.  I have been dressing for the past 50 years. I found this forum a little over a year ago, and it has helped immensely knowing that i am not alone.  Everyone has been very supportive.   Things were going very well for me (my wife was supportive it seemed) until last October when my wife one day out of the blue told me she would leave me if I transitioned to a woman.  I was devastated as I thought things between us were going rather well.  (In retrospect- that week it was cold outside so I took advantage of that opportunity to wear a heavy coat to hide the fact I was wearing a bra and ran a few errands.  Maybe  my C cup was not so obscured) We have had some good discussion over the past couple of weeks and she told me she would have left me by now if she was unhappy.  So i am happy about that. She has some hard boundaries- no going out of the house wearing a bra, and I need to wear out some of my clothes before getting new ones.  I do love to shop, and have more bras and panties than she does.  She has a hard time wrapping her head around that, and has asked many times why i want to wear a bra when she hates it. I have tried to explain how it feels the right thing to be doing - it just feels right, (better than how I feel when I don’t have any breasts/bra) and when I look in the mirror I like what I see, but I think for a cis person they just don’t understand.     Probably way too much in this post - but if anyone has any of these feelings mentioned above how do you manage them?   Thanks for reading.   Hugs Janae
