Man Post Mondays - Man Packs

My Mom actually sent me this link

Here's what I pulled directly from their site for your review.

We created manpacks to give men (and the people who love them) more time to build empires, climb mountains, slay dragons... to achieve the goals they aspire to.

Our Story

Manpacks began as a side project between Ken Johnson and Andrew Draper, former band-mates who turned from writing songs to building websites. Being your own boss has its advantages, but self-employed people work long hours and simple errands can be difficult to prioritize and a real problem (particularly for single guys). Asking themselves "what if basic essentials could just show up at our door, on a schedule?" Ken and Andrew invested $500 in some underwear, put up a website, and founded the service that, as it turns out, many guys have been waiting for.

What is Manpacks?

Manpacks is an automated service to replenish basics like underwear, socks, condoms, shaving supplies and more.

How many pairs should a guy have in rotation?

Bare minimum = 10 pairs: one for each day of the week plus two for going out and one extra.  If you are exercising you will need more and if you want to do laundry every couple weeks instead, double this number.

Do I really need to buy underwear & socks every 3 months?

No, especially not if you're buying in bulk. But one or two pairs of underwear & socks every 3 months will cycle through and keep your rotation fresh — replacing everything every 2-3 years.  

Why Manpacks?

  • Your time is valuable and we automate mundane, joyless purchases.
  • You'll find gear you like without running into pics of guys in thongs.
  • We'll help you find brands/styles you *really* like, without wasting time shopping for them. 

How does it work?

Manpacks features a dashboard to hold your favorite items, queued up to ship on a schedule (every 3 months by default). Rush, snooze, or modify a pack anytime, and add exclusive offers to your next pack with a single click.

How do I get started?

Start simple, and consider trying something new.  Single quantities work well to begin. Once you find something you really like, you can easily stock up with a few more.

How does shipping work?

After setting up your Manpack the first order usually ships within 3-5 days. We'll check in by email 3 months later, one week before your next order is scheduled (so you'll be reminded to make any changes).

How does billing work?

You are charged when orders ship.  There are no contracts or fees, satisfaction is guaranteed, and you can suspend your service whenever you like.
