This STP & Packing Strap is designed to work with New York Toy Collective's Sam the STP and the Archer or Pierre packers, though it may work for other similarly-sized soft packers (see packer size guidelines below). This strap includes two small loops so you can securely pack the shaft upward or downward, giving you more control over the size/look of the bulge.
How it works: The plush, latex-free elastic packing strap goes around each of the wearer's thighs, while the packer's shaft is passed through an opening in the front. There is no waistband on this strap. There are 2 small silicone-backed elastic straps for securing the shaft of your STP or packer in either an "up" or "down" position.
Packer size guidelines: the opening in the packing strap can accommodate any STP or packer with a shaft of up to 1.5" in diameter. Be aware that heavy packers (such as pack-and-play style items) will likely not work well with this strap since their weight and size will overwhelm this strap's ability to stay in place.
To choose the correct strap size, measure the circumference at the very, very top of your thigh (the tape measure or string you are using for the measurement should make a complete circle around your leg) where the leg opening of a pair of briefs would be.

Packing harnesses are straps or specially-made undergarments that are designed to make wearing a soft packer more comfortable and secure. A packing harness can be as simple as a sewn piece of elastic, or as complicated as multi-pocket, high-tech fabric underwear designed to allow for simple packing, STP (Stand-To-Pee) packers, or pack-and-play options.
What to look for when choosing a packing harness
Here are a few points to consider when choosing a packing harness:
1. Will I be using a STP-packer or non-STP packer?
If you are using a Stand-To-Pee (STP) packer, keep in mind that you'll have to be able to access the funnel or other area where you pee into the packer. Choose a packing solution that gives you easy access to use your STP in a comfortable manner, and also allows you to wear it comfortably throughout the day.
2. Will I be wearing the harness inside my own underwear, or do I want packing underwear with a pouch or rings already built in?
Some harnesses are designed to be minimal, like jock straps or pouches that you can pin or velcro inside any underwear. Other solutions are "regular" underwear with secure packing systems built in. Size and styling may limit your choices for packing underwear. (If you can sew, you can add pouches to your own underwear at home!)
3. How delicate is my soft packer?
Some brands of soft packers are more delicate than others, especially where the shaft of the packer meets the balls. Some users wear habits or clothing choices also may cause tearing or other problems. If your packer is prone to tearing, you might want to choose a packing solution that keeps your packer fully enclosed inside a pocket, rather than letting the shaft hang free through an opening in the harness. This puts less strain on the packer, and should extend its life.
4. How active do I plan to be?
Finding a secure packing solution is important for not only avoiding damage, but also so that you don't lose your packer accidentally during activities such as contact sports, running, or swimming. Some people use different packing solutions for sports than they do for everyday packing.
5. How much contact do I want between the packer and my skin?
Depending on the material your packer is made of, direct skin contact may prove to be hot, uncomfortable, or irritating during everyday wear. Some harnesses and packing underwear keep a layer of fabric between you and the packer, which can help if you are prone to irritation.
