Show us yer pants!
« on: January 12, 2020, 12:12:08 AM »

As the title says, show me your pants, or rather tell me what you use for cup support. At the moment I use the slazenger sports direct specials but I don't find the fit very good. Is it a case of the tried and trust jock strap or is there a hidden gem for the most comfortable cricket under crackers ever and I'm missing out?

I use Shock Doctor compression shorts. So comfy you only have to adjust your box out of habit rather than necessity. A little overdone but definitely miles better than others I've tried including Aeros which are second on the list.

But they are a little expensive so I might go for something like this next time.

Nike pro compression shorts box inside then white football shorts with thighpads over the top

Like the feeling of box on flesh knowing it's there (I have forgotten it before)

Tried alsorts of bespoke box shorts/jock strap but fine the valve is most comfortable and supportive

I have the aero box shorts but find they make my thigh pad slide around so I tend to bat in the aero briefs.

I also really like a pair of American Football shorts I bought in the US - they have a cup which is very similar to a cricket box but more comfy for me. Theyre like this: https://www.target.com/p/franklin-sports-youth-compression-short-with-cup-s-m/-/A-15100492 very similar to shock doctor

Does anybody just put it in a sock and then leave the flap bit over the top?

I don't think you're protecting the right bits if you put it in your socks 😂

Strange youd think but I know a fair few people who use a sock to hold their box, then just put it in their boxers or briefs

The box in a sock is a classic club cricketers go to, but surprisingly used by quite a few on the county circuit! Personally Ive always just gone with the old school jockstrap but in a pinch the sock is trustworthy

I have a pair of Slazenger shorts from SD and about 6 of JAWZ gears compression shorts. I find them to be very breathable and comfortable for the cruel UAE weather

My aging jockstrap and GN box combo needed updating/replacing.  So I recently purchased the Shockdoctor shorts with included Bioflex cup, I also purchased an Aero Groin Protector to see what works out best for me.

I like the Shorts as the cup pocket is quite ergonomic, allowing these large cups to fit well and not impede too much on the shorts functionality (see below picture fitted with the Aero Groin Protector).

The Bioflex cup offers good protection if you caught a blow front on, yet if the ball comes in at more of an angle, the protection offered is less so. The volume of space in the large Bioflex cup size is ok but the senior sized Aero Groin Protector is bigger and felt better for me when testing out protection with the mallet.  However I did prefer the fitting between the thighs of the Bioflex cup, it was narrower and flexible. So if you were doing a lot of running, I imagine the Bioflex cup would work out better and it also has breathing slots to help you from getting 'betty swallocks'.

For now though, I'm going to run with the Shockdoctor shorts and Aero Groin Protector combination.
