False. Sure it's comfortable to wear but it gives you NO protection. I got mine, tried it on and cup-checked myself. I might as well have not been wearing a cup at all. Hurt like a motherfucker. I figured "maybe I just hit it too hard. I'll try it in training and see if that was a fluke." It wasn't. Get the XO ProCup with jockstrap, wear it under compression shorts. I don't have it yet but I've heard nothing but good things about Jaco's cup/compression shorts combo. I refuse to buy it until they sell the compression shorts without a cup, so I can have 2 or 3 pairs (because fuck doing laundry every day). I don't need 3 cups.
