One of our favorite harness-makers has done it again and is now making awesome packing underpants. These are designed especially for soft-packing and have the same attention to detail and high quality manufacturing that makes SpareParts one of our best-selling harnesses!
Pete Trunks are short, square-cut boxer briefs. Trunks are much like what would be referred to as "boy shorts", with the exception that Pete underwear has open fly access. Note that the hole leading from the pouch to the open fly only measures .75" and some folks have found it to be too tight for their STP to fit.

I wish I could give these a fifth star but there's a few things I didn't like--
When I first purchased these I was pre-phallo. At the time, I was packing with the Transthetics EZP prosthetic. The shaft of the prosthetic is too girthy for these trunks to work the way they were intended to work. The shaft would get partially squished going through the hole into the pouch. My prosthetic also would not stay in place when trying to use the built-in flap & pouch system.
However, being post-op from stage 2 phallo and being able to let it hang 24/7, these trunks are perfect. They give support to my penis no matter how I wear them which is incredibly important. But, I wish these were STP prosthetic/post-phallo compatible/usable and that is probably the one major missing feature.
Would I buy them again? Yes. For sure. But I'd still like to see an upgraded version to allow me to put my penis through a fly and pee that way vs. having to pull the waistband down and under my shaft. I also then have to tuck everything back into place inside the trunks vs. just closing a flap.
First off, both these and another item I bought were out of stock when I placed my order, but the website didn't tell me that at the time of purchase. Instead, I was contacted a few days later via email and told I would have to wait up to 11 business days for them to be restocked and for my order to ship. I didn't receive any sort of discount or apology other than a written "sorry," which I was definitely annoyed about. If your items aren't in stock then your website needs to reflect that.
Secondly, the trunks: the design is good but could use some improvements. The slit/hole for the shaft of your packer/STP to go through is much too small. I heard stitches bursting when I squeezed the shaft of my Archer packer through the hole. It was such a tight fit that I was worried about ripping the silicone of my packer. The legs of the trunks seem to be designed for AMAB bodies instead of AFAB bodies, which means that they are super tight and roll/bunch/ride up something awful. If you're on T however and have the fat redistribution going on, this might not be an issue for you. As is typical in most packing underwear, there is no gusset in the crotch of the Pete Trunks. The means that it's nearly impossible to wear a pad with these. It also means that if you're dealing with any discharge issues that often come along with FTM HRT, it will just soak right through the material in the crotch and into your pants. I've started sewing my own cotton gussets into my packing underwear but I really just wish that more of the commercial ones would come with this option. I also feel like the price is a bit unwarranted for what you're getting. Rodeoh offers essentially the same thing for $25 instead of $40.
What I do like about these trunks is the snug, stretchy material. I feel like it helps to hold my packer very securely in place. They do fit quite tight, so if you don't like that you might want to consider sizing up! I also like the feel of the sleek polyester underneath my jeans.
Overall, I find that I use my Rodeoh packing briefs much more often than I use these, since the hole is too tight and finicky and the legs ride up.
