This topic may look familiar to you as it is very likely we have discussed it either in a previous article or during an episode of The Voice of TURNIP STYLE podcast. Instead of just pulling out the archive, we felt it better to give the topic a new look with the broader experiences we have gained since the original post.

The JC Athletic 3 Inch Jockstrap stepped up to the platform when it was announced that BIKE was discontinuing production.

 

Jockstrap lovers around the globe were in a “crazy” panic when the announcement came out; BIKE would stop making the classic BIKE jockstrap. The descendant of the original jockstrap designed in 1874 by C.F. Bennet, a bicycle courier in Boston.

 

The name itself pays homage to Mr Bennet’s profession and the very “spark” that created the jockstrap. How could the company that is responsible for giving us the jockstrap since 1874, be closing up shop?

 

Fortunately, out of all that “crazy” panic emerged, a really solid jockstrap. Brought to us by a serious jockstrap enthusiast.

 

Which, makes the story all quite a bit more romantic when you think about the fact that the jockstrap was an invention born of necessity and now the JC Athletic Jockstraps are a product of that necessity but now fuelled by passion.

The Waistband

 

Keeping in mind that the jockstrap is an invention of necessity; one could understand why such a wide waistband; which to some is what makes it or breaks it for some jockstrap enthusiasts.

 

The original jockstrap was designed to provide some comfort from the vigorous jostling one got while cycling down Boston’s cobblestone streets. Not just a healthy romp through the “maze” at the bathhouse or night club. (wink wink)

 

The technology behind what the jockstrap is intended to do, has been fine-tuned some. We have surely seen vintage photographs of some poor guy in a jockstrap that looks more like an elastic and loincloth wrapped around his area.

 

The need and intention hasn’t changed. Rather, we have re-addressed solving the problem of “jostled junk” using modern techniques and textiles.

 

The passage of time as allowed improvements in; technology and the fabrication of both polyester and rubber, design and construction principles and practices. All of which do lend to the superior comfortable fit I get today, from the JC Athletic Jockstrap.

 

The waistband is extra comfortable against the skin while feeling supportive rather than restrictive. I have a bit of a belly and the wide waistband is not uncomfortable for me to wear at all.

Attention to detail: JC Athletic ensures comfort with a super soft waistband. The biggest bonus being, all their tags are on the OUTSIDE of the band.
No rough little scratchy tags to bug your butt crack and lower back!

The Pouch

This is what it is all about really. I mean business in the front and party in the back. Am I right?

 

Getting back to be serious; the pouch is what a jockstrap is all about. The reason why Bennett created the jockstrap is because he was tired of his junk jostling around all over Boston as he was cycling from customer to customer, over cobblestone streets, delivering packages.

 

That’s right C. F. Bennet, inventor of the jockstrap; was a BIKE courier. It is all beginning to make sense now, isn’t it?

 

The JC Athletic 3 Inch Classic Jockstrap pouch is strong. Strong on support and strong on comfort.

 

When you slide your junk into this pouch and then remind yourself that the entire jockstrap is made of polyester and rubber you are going to be surprised.

 

Traditionally 2 fabrics not known for “air flow” and never once has my junk felt like it was poaching in a sauna.

 

Today’s technology has allowed us to say goodbye to the polyester of our past. Which, nobody is really mad at. Frankly, there is some polyester that belongs in the past.

Consistency

 

That is what I have come to expect from my JC Athletic Classic 3 Inch Jockstrap. This past February it will be 3 years since JC Athletic launched and I got my hands on the 3 Inch Waistband jockstrap and from the beginning I have truly loved it.

What is best is that it is just as comfortable as it was the first day. Sure it was a bit stiff when I went to try it on as soon as I got it. I was eager to get into it; almost like I was experiencing a moment in jockstrap history; I needed to satisfy my eager curiosity.

 

After a wash with my other gear and hung to dry and each time I put it on; I felt the same satisfaction I have when pulling on my favourite t-shirt or hoodie.

 

A jockstrap is a rugged garment and easy to take care of; the thing can handle a lot of abuse, it was built for it.

 

Wash it and hang it to dry. It will be dry in no time.

 

This ensures that the fibres (polyester and rubber) don’t break down due to the heat of the dryer — and your jockstrap will be your best buddy.

 

I look forward to hearing about your experience with JC Athletic Jockstraps — photos too!
