Hi guys just looking at getting my first packer. I'm not looking for the STP element but I just want to have a bit of something there (that isn't gym socks :lol: )

I'm looking at the mr limpys for the moment as they are fairly cheap. I was just wondering if anybody knows if you can use a mr limpy with a mr right packing strap? Also does anyone have any advice on which size to get as I'm currently torn between the 3.5" and the 5" ?

If not I'll look at making a harness but I am pretty terrible at sewing so it might not go so well :shrugs: . I thought I could get some cheap boxers and cut the waistband out and use that somehow.

Thanks :D
Charlie

Hi Charlie

I've never used a Mr Right harness so can't comment on that, but I can recommend harnesses by The Gear Guy. Reasonable price and the arrive really quickly considering he's based in America. As for Mr Limpy, totally go for 3.5". The 5" is ridiculous. Like, seriously.

Hi guys,

Sorry for bringing an old post back up, but how exactly do these packers work?
I've heard about them, but I'm kinda unknowledgeable about them, generally...

Any advice on what they do and how they work exactly? :oops:
