Bike packing with a dropper post

I'm looking to get into bikepacking with my mountain bike but I'm worried about damaging my dropper post?

What are the best options out there for packing on my bike?

Are there any accessories available to prevent damage to my seatpost?

Here is a good read on compatible seat posts for bike packing. It will give you specs and prices.

there is a bunch of different brackets out there that will depend on the seat post and pack you choose.

i always thought rule of thumb for dropper posts is, the higher you go the easier they’re to bend. I was told 145-150mm is when they start to loose integrity.
