Jock straps come in many different forms. The most popular type of jockstrap, made by the company Shock Doctor, looks like a pair of shorts, and has an inner compartment for a protective cup. Other jockstraps may consist of a strap around the waist, a strap between the legs, and a protective cup.
There are different kinds of jockstraps, including Shock Doctor, CCM, Warrior, Reebok, and Under Armor. The jockstrap you wear should be based on personal preference. Jockstraps vary in price based off brand and size. Most jockstraps fall in the range of $20-$50, with goalie jockstraps costing a bit more due to the additional padding.
