I have owned this product for a while now. I use it for BJJ under a Gi and it works really well. It stays in place well, protects really well but I would agree that it does protrude a bit.
The only downside is that you have to put the whole thing in the washing machine and it clanks about a lot but that does mean you actually have to clean the thing regularly.

Have been very pleased with these shorts and cup. I wear 32" waist jeans and the medium size shorts are a good fit on the waist and legs.
The cup stays in place for a 2 hr training session, is very comfortable to wear and doesn't obstruct leg movements. Seems to offer good protection against low kicks and knees.
Only drawback is that the cup does protrude at the front and is probably not ideal under tight shorts.

Revolutionary yet simple idea from Jaco for a compression short/cup combo, why all MMA fighters don’t use/wear these is beyond me. The shorts are high quality material that can withstand just about anything, and the same can be said of the cup, which stays perfectly in place while training either kickboxing or Jiu Jitsu, so essentially these shorts/cup working brilliantly well either in striking or grappling/rolling.
The cup is held incredibly firmly in place by a Velcro fashioning combined with several thru-the-loop parts, so essentially the cup system is double-protected, yet can be removed via a Velcro opening on the inside of the shorts. These shorts are an obvious no-brainer for anyone training and/or fighting in MMA, or indeed any other combat sport. 90% polyester, 10% spandex blend.
•High quality polyester/spandex material mix
•Can we worn with either striking and/or grappling in both training and competition
•Adjustable straps that hold cup
