This is the Deluxe Packing Pouch made by Gear Guy Gear (they call it the FTM Velcro Pouch) and distributed by Babeland. It’s one of Babeland’s newer products and costs $18.00. You can see photos here.

This packer harness worried me at first since the only thing holding it up is a strip of velcro. I was concerned about the possibility of it falling out of my pants while at work or while in the men’s room. I sucked it up and gave it a shot. The harness comes with instructions as to how exactly one gets the packer inside without damaging either of the products. The instructions were helpful but could have been more helpful with a visual presentation or by separating the paragraph into multiple steps. They also did not address my concern. I know it seems silly to wonder exactly how one is supposed to wear this, but I was, as I said earlier, afraid of it falling out and wanted to know the best way to avoid that.

The Deluxe Packing Pouch does its job without being the typical harness. One does not have to worry about a bunch of straps and whether or not they are loose or tight. This pouch simplifies the process allowing the customer to go on with hir day. It also keeps the stickiness of the cyberskin material off of your legs as the balls rest inside the pouch. Packers, for whatever reason, tend to make me feel dirty, so this is a huge plus for me.

The pouch only works on certain fabrics since it is only supported by velcro. Therefore, it fails to do its job a lot of the time. Its only purpose is to hold the packer up. This pouch really only works with knit materials. If wearing loose, knit boxer shorts, odds are the weight of the packer and pouch will weigh down your shorts.

Lastly, the manufacturer could benefit a lot and help out a lot of guys by making the Deluxe Packing Pouch STP compatible. They are becoming more and more popular, and this pouch does not meet those potential customers’ needs.

Costing a whopping $18.00 the Deluxe Packing Pouch is a little more than I’d like to spend on a sock with a hole and a velcro strap on it. While it can be incredibly useful to some people in some situations, it simply doesn’t meet the purpose it’s meant to meet.

I give it a 3.5/5 rating.
