Great Fabric on pouch, waistband holds up okay
July 9, 2016
With five boys between 5 and 16 years old I think I have a general idea of what works for football. My oldest won't wear the jockstrap-style cause he is embarrassed in the locker room. For my younger four kids this is the go-to cup supporter for them. We have tried the Duke, Flarico, Bike, McDavid, Rawlings, Shock Doctor, and UnderArmour. Gosh, I feel like the "jockstrap Mom" LOLIt is important to get the right size because you don't want it to ride up or move a lot. It seems silly to write a review. My husband says to just buy the cheapest thing, but my boys have strong opinions about comfort, including my 14 yr old who has a tactile sensitivity disorder. This is the only cup supporter he will wear. The waistband is firm but soft (wash it a few times before use) and the pouch is silky smooth. For my second youngest, Carl, I made the mistake of getting a size too large and his foreskin kept getting pinched. You want the fit to be tight but not restricting. Also, the fabric is breathable (if that is a word). What else? It launders well (cold wash, hang dry). You can just put the cup itself in the dishwasher.
ProsIt is really smooth feeling and comfortable. The cup size is adequate if you have the boy pointing upward. Wicks the sweat away.
ConsNo anti-microbial fabric treatment. Smaller sizes not small enough for peewee football players.

Got the youth regular waist 22-24 for my son. Thankfully this product runs small as his waist is 16-18. Super stretchy. But it did not come with a cup. You have to buy your own. So we got the peewee cup from McDavid which was positively large for a 6 year old. The McDavid came with a brief supporter (cup pocket inside) but it ended up riding up and it wasn't very secure. When he took one in the groin the cup actually smashed his balls against his pelvic floor. He dropped, rolled, gasping to the ground. Of course we rushed him to the emergency room and it $800 dollars later everything was okay and just needed some ice. With the All-Star jock supporter he has not had any mishaps (aside from an occasional pinching of the foreskin if it slips to the side.). It holds everything well. We have tried the brief supporter and the boxer supporter but this is by far the most secure set up. I said that it fit a 16 inch waist but it is super, super stretchy. It will probably last Ryan for 5 more years. That is an appreciable savings considering Hanna and I dropped eight Benjamins on his scrambled eggs.
ProsIt fits smaller but stretches a lot. Holds everything in place. More secure than briefs or boxer support shorts. Good price
ConsAll-star really has poor quality cups. Get a McDavid or XO cup instead.
