Overview

Alrighty, so this review is almost a carbon copy of the Pierre review. The reason I separated them was because Pierre has foreskin, which is something that truly changed my packing experience. Archer did nothing for me. Ok ok, that’s mean. Archer is a GREAT packer, but I love an uncut peen, so Pierre wins. However, I’m going to be as objective as possible and give you the FACTS about Archer. It’s literally the exact same packer as Pierre, except it’s cut!

Now, a little about the company. New York Toy Collective is a queer and black owned business that makes silicone packers, STPs, masturbators, prosthetics, and dildos. Their tagline is: Quality silicone dildos for a sex positive culture. I couldn’t agree more on the “quality” aspect. When looking at the Archer Packer, quality just exudes out of it both in terms of material and appearance. Not only is Archer made of 100% silicone, but it also packs amazingly! I’ve had the Pierre version of this packer for over 10 years and have packed with it on and off and I still have the original packer and it’s still in great shape!

The Great

  • Soft – Archer is very soft to the touch. It has a skin-like texture.
  • Feel – Not too squishy where it feels like water or gel and not so hard that it looks like a huge boner. Archer has a good feel to it. It’s nice and sturdy. 
  • Pack – Looks great in underwear and pants.
  • Gravity – The shaft naturally drops down, therefore you do not need tight underwear or pants to keep it from looking erect.
  • Color – They have options for colors other than skin tones!

The Not-so-Great

  • The Base – The flat area that would traditionally be up against your body is a little sticky. If you have pets, their fur will stick to it.
  • Oily – Even though this packer is made of 100% silicone, After having it for years, I noticed the packer forming an oily residue “ring” (testicle shape) on the table (and then again on a piece of paper). This is common with many packers on the market. Using some corn starch will help reduce the oil from forming.

Unboxing

Over the years, the packaging has changed a lot so what you’re seeing here might not be the most current packaging (since I’ve had these forever). Archer comes in some fun colors, which is why it’s blue in this photo.

I know a lot of people wonder what the actual shipping box looks like and it’s tough to really say because this prosthetic is sold by many different online retailers. If you are ever unsure, you can always message the company you are purchasing from and ask them what they put on the box! The retailer that I prefer is Early2Bed and I can tell you that living in Canada and receiving a package from the USA, I’m always terrified the customs declaration form is going to say something like “big wiener”. Luckily, that has never happened with Early2Bed. They also didn’t even put the return address as “Early2Bed” they put “ETB”. 

Color

Archer Packer comes in 4  different skin tone shades and broad colors.  I do wish the darkest shade was a little darker. The fun colors are great if skin tones make you feel dysphoric or if you imagine yourself with an alternative color peen.

Skin Tones:

Chocolate, Caramel, Hazelnut, Cashew

Fun Colors:

Rose Gold, Teal, Midnight Purple, Blue

Size

Archer comes in 2 main sizes, small (4”)  and regular (5.25”) (both on the right)

The small is a great size for people who are shorter, smaller, and/or younger. It’s a great packer for youth and those testing out different packer sizes. The regular size is an all around great packer, however, there are some who may feel it’s length is too much.

The two very small ones on the left are 1.5” and 2” which you can get on their Etsy shop. Trust us though, these are way too small to pack with (even if you’re a smaller person). These just look like cute keychains or little gift.

Archer is more anatomically correct than other packers on the market. The shaft lays perfectly on the scrotum, making the packer less bulky, (as opposed to the Mr. Limpy, where it’s shaft is directly connected to the balls and when you try to flatten the shaft to the scrotum, you end up with a very bulky packer).

Material and Feel

Archer is made of 100% Silicone. The textural feel is very soft and skin-like. There is no dual-density in this packer, therefore it doesn’t feel like skin is moving. However, the quality of the silicone is apparent and very skin-like. The packer can leave a small oily/greasy residue when sitting on a flat surface (like a table). This can be annoying when storing Archer because you end up with testical-shaped oily rings everywhere. But placing it on fabric should be fine (that you do not care about, please do not put Archer on your favourite t-shirt unless you want people to ask you why your dick took a selfie on it).

Packing

Easy to pack with when wearing briefs or packing underwear. Wearing tight boxer briefs can be a gamble because if they aren’t tight enough, expect your dick to fly out of your pants. If you are someone who wears tight jeans, then you are on the safer side. If you choose to wear very loose fitting boxers and sweatpants, expect to look down and see Archer waving at you from the ground up. This is not something anyone should have to go through. Be sure to use packing underwear, briefs, tight boxer briefs, or even a harness when wearing Archer.

Luckily, Archer is made of 100% silicone, which means it’s skin safe. So feel free to put it in regular briefs up against your skin!

Real Feel Test™

After extensive research, I give Archer the official thumbs up on our Real Feel Test. Not only does Archer feel great when it is caressed through pants, but it even passes the underwear grab test. It looks great in underwear, pants, sweatpants, and shorts.

Visual Realism 4/5

Visually, this packer does look pretty realistic. The length of the shaft is a little longer than I would normally like to see on a packer, but it still looks pretty real. The balls have some detail, the head of the penis also has some great detail.

Touch Realism (Through Pants) 5/5

Oh yeah baby. Archer gets a perfect score on this one for being SUPER realistic when doing the grab test. If you feel it through your underwear, boom, real. Someone else brushes up against it? WOW What a peen! Super super realistic!

Touch Realism (Skin-Like) 3.5/5

Archer feels pretty realistic. By no means does it feel like human skin, but finding a prosthetic that is exactly like human skin is pretty rare. Archer is soft, floppy-ish (a little stiff because it’s made out of silicone, but its still pretty floppy), and just overall a great feeling packer.

Cleaning and Care

I recommend cleaning this product before and after each use. 

The 100% silicone component makes this STP easy to clean and sterilize. The easiest way to clean this product is with hot soapy water or by sticking it in the top row of the dishwasher. If you need to sterilize this product, put it in a boiling pot of water for 3-5 minutes. Because this product is made of 100% silicone, boiling it is 100% safe. 

If you find that the prosthetic is tacky/sticky after cleaning it, I always recommend using cornstarch (or other rejuvenating powders) to maintain a smooth and silky texture. If you have one of the darker skin tones and you don’t want to put white cornstarch on it, add a little coco powder to the cornstarch to offset the color.

*Please do not use talcum powder (most commonly found in baby powder), it has been associated with different types of cancers, mostly ovarian cancer. We have a full article on the dangers of talcum power here.

Storage

I recommend using the original packaging or a natural canvas bag. Place this product in a cool, dry, and dark place, like a dresser drawer. Do not store it with other similar-material products as those eventually can start to morph together, which is really not fun. Sometimes, these products secrete an oily texture and a canvas bag will help absorb this moisture. If you do not store your packer properly, overtime it can secrets oils and eventually lose its shape and size (it will become smaller).

Small Tip: Add a little bit of cornstarch to this product before storing it in a bag. This will help its life and longevity.

Full Rating

Durability 4/5

If you take care of Archer, this packer can last well over a year, even with 24/7 wear. If using an o-ring, be mindful that the shaft and testicles may start to rip. This is normal as there isn’t much silicone/material keeping them together. Always grab your packer by holding everything together in place as opposed to grabbing it by the shaft or balls only.

Packability 4/5

Easy to pack with when wearing briefs, packing underwear, or a harness. Wearing Archer with anything else will be a gamble.  If you’re not a gambler make sure to get a strap, pouch or wear briefs. 

Budget Friendly 3/5

Depending entirely on your budget, this packer may not be accessible to everyone. I give it a 3/5 because I believe that for the quality you are getting, Archeris priced appropriately. 

Reel Feel Test 4/5

Feels like a flaccid peen and could past the grab test.

Final Thoughts

I absolutely love Archer, even after all these years (#always). It’s a good reliable packer that is decently priced, looks great, feels great, and has foreskin. If you want something that will last you years and years, then the Archer is the one for you. The shaft is a little long, but this is something I have gotten over because this packer creates such a beautiful bulge!
