Packing Review: Babeland’s Best Bulge

Finding the best soft packing prosthetic is not an easy task. There are a few reputable companies that make packers at reasonable prices and I have tried out my fair share.

Some of them, I found to lose their form or retain dirt no matter how much I scrubbed it. Nobody wants a dirty “party in the pants.” Right?

I also tried some packers by themselves without using a pouch or some device to help keep it in place. That method works semi-okay in tight boxer briefs, yet I admit I have had a few packers go M.I.A. down my pant leg on several (embarrassing) occasions.

The Babeland soft pack is very realistic to sight and touch for the conservative price range of $16 – $22 depending on the size you want.

If you’re new to the packing world, I suggest NOT going for a big boy. Remember that you want a natural-looking bulge, not a bowling ball in your britches that attracts stares from passing strangers (or friends). We are told “bigger is better”, yet this is not the case for a soft pack.

I chose the “small” and, trust me, it’s big enough! I wouldn’t dare touch the medium or large unless you are a big boy yourself and need a bigger boy downstairs to help compensate. You don’t want too much snake slithering down your leg, fellas.

The only downside to this packer is that they only have it in pink/vanilla. It appears much more vanilla than pink, which was nice considering my last soft pack was soooo pink it made my eyes squint.

They do carry another product called a Mr. Right in the colors vanilla, mocha and chocolate. I hope to also review that one in the future.

Babeland carries a “cock sock” for $15 — I received a product called the “deluxe packing pouch” for $18.

I absolutely LOVE the packing pouch. Once you insert the soft pack, you can Velcro the pouch to the inside of your boxers or briefs. It stays perfectly in place and feels very natural. I thought I might have an issue at first with the Velcro attaching, but so far I’ve tested it on my extensive underwear collection and all is well. It is also easy to wash and holds up through wear and tear.

Babeland truly understand the needs of FTM’s and is very supportive in making sure we have the best of quality products that won’t hurt our bank accounts.

Out of 5 stars:

I give the soft pack a 4 only due to the fact it comes in a singular color. I give the deluxe packing pouch a 5.

TQ Nation Review: Good Vibrations (Packers & STPs – Oh My!)

Need a Packer?

I recently purchased a few items and have come to a very satisfied conclusion, so i figured I’d blog about it for the reference of others…
————

After being referred by a friend, I went to GoodVibes website and right away liked what I saw.

Immediately there was a tab labeled Gender Expression and there they had EVERYTHING I was currently looking for.

Their GV Soft Pack is THE MOST LIFELIKE PACKER at this price that I’ve seen in a while. They’ve got it in 3 colors, and 2 very believable and life-like sizes. I read in their review that the packer had “a slightly firmer inner core [which] allows for more rigidity to the shaft [and] result[s] in [it’s] more realistic feel”, so I was curious and wanted to see for myself. Ranging from only $24-28, it seemed like a pretty logical risk to take, so I signed myself up for a 4-inch.

As soon as I put this little guy on I felt comfortable, and SUPER passing. This thing REALLY feels real. The rigidity of the inner shaft makes it hang in a more believable manner and it fits perfectly into the harnesses (mentioned in the following paragraphs) elastic pouches so it stays in place giving the wearer confidence that his bad boy isn’t going sliding down his pant leg when he stands up….. *sigh*

An item I’ve been badly needing to upgrade in one of the everyday-undergarments used for ‘passing’ was a COMFORTABLE harness that STILL has OPTIMAL PACKAGE CONTROL. They have several genius harness options, the style i purchased has just a plain (thin in depth, thick in width) elastic band around the waist, and a simple leather section stitched to the waist-band with a little, to be frank, elastic pouch for the balls of the packer to sit in. I purchased one in this style WITH leg-straps and one WITHOUT leg-straps.

The harness WITHOUT leg-straps stays in place just fine, the leather is smooth and adjusts to your body temperature just like the material of the packer, so it doesn’t irritate and it provides a layer between you and your packer, helping in the ‘stickiness’ department that I know alot of us Boys stuck in the south have to deal with in the depths of the summer.

ALSO, my partner and I noticed, as i was about to check out the ‘cart’, that they carried an STP (Stand To Pee) device, one intended not just for fTms but for any female-bodied person who wants to pee standing up for any reason (camping, dirty bathrooms, NO bathrooms, etc.). They’re cheap and they come in a rainbow variety of colors.They’re of the most basic of concepts, just a bit of a drain/slide with a wider end that goes against you and a thinner end with a run-off spout.

So, to conclude my rating on my positive experience with Good Vibes, I give them an overall 5 out of 5 stars for swiftness of delivery, quality and availability of product, and for throwing in a free sticker [:
