About NuttyBuddy

The patented NuttyBuddy Ballistic Cup is essential protective equipment that is required when entering a hostile environment. It is designed to protect the groin against bullets, fragments and other impacts. The NuttyBuddy Ballistic cup follows the same anatomical design as the original NuttyBuddy. This design allows the cup to shape to the body to deliver comfort, and in addition there is a "tail" that resides between the legs to center the cup during activity and provide protection under the groin area.

About the Cup

NuttyBuddy originated as an athletic cup and was invented and patented by Mark Littell after he learned that nearly 50% of his athletes refused to wear athletic cups because they said that the only available cups were uncomfortable and restrictive. He created a premier athletic cup with a patented design that is anatomically shaped to conform to the male body providing unprecedented levels of comfort and protection. After all, the most important thing is to "protect the boys". The patented NuttyBuddy has won multiple awards for its comfort, design and protection and has become a staple for athletes all over the world. NuttyBuddy's safety gear protects the boys while playing baseball, softball, ice hockey, field hockey, lacrosse, football, martial arts, paintball or other contact sports. NuttyBuddy is now expanding their market into the law enforcement and Military fields by creating the world's first ballistic cup!

How was The NuttyBuddy Ballistic tested?

The ballistic resistant NuttyBuddy was shot with the NIJ IIIA threats, the 44 magnum round and the 9mm round at the specified velocities of 1400 to 1460 ft./sec. The IIIA specification is the highest handgun protection level for the certification of NIJ ballistic vests. The NuttyBuddy easily stopped these rounds. The shooting is indicative of the high ballistic resistance of the NuttyBuddy. The velocities of both bullets are significantly higher than the muzzle velocity of factory rounds fired from handguns and, in the case of the 9mm, machine guns.

The patented NuttyBuddy Ballistic cup will be manufactured by ArmorSource. ArmorSource is a leading manufacturer of ballistic helmets, advanced head protection products, and other ballistic accessories. NuttyBuddy is partnering with ArmorSource to utilize their expertise in their development and design of composite materials, coupled with years of ballistic product design experience, which has enabled ArmorSource to offer innovative and unique solutions in ballistic groin products. Our first priority is the protection, functionality, and comfort of the soldiers, police, and security personnel who depend on their products for safety.

Comfort and protection are the two critical components of the NuttyBuddy Cup. Here is how we have reached those goals with The NuttyBuddy Ballistic cup:

  • The ballistic resistant NuttyBuddy was shot with the NIJ IIIA threats, the 44 magnum round and the 9mm round at the specified velocities of 1400 to 1460 feet/sec. The NuttyBuddy easily stopped these rounds.
  • Tested with kicks, slides, lateral movement, speed running, sharp corner cutting, impact resistance, stopping, jumping and ballistic movement
  • Cradles the anatomy to fit and absorb hard blistering blows
  • Cushioned edge that is molded and built in to match the cup's thickness. This aids in comfort and in allowing the cup to move with the body
  • The "tail" resides between the legs to center the cup during activity and protect under the groin in case of fragmentation

NuttyBuddy is setting the standards for comfort and protection

WARNINGS:

Ballistic Cups provide protection against the specified threats when properly sized and worn as directed. Failure to use the proper size Ballistic Cup, to wear the Ballistic Cup as directed, or to adhere to the warnings and precautions provided by NuttyBuddy, Inc. may lead to serious injury or death.

Do not intentionally get shot or otherwise struck by a projectile or otherwise while wearing the Ballistic Cup. GETTING SHOT ALWAYS CARRIES THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

Law enforcement and military activities are inherently and unavoidably dangerous activities. The Ballistic Cups cannot provide protection from all potential threats faced in the line of duty. The Ballistic Cups are intended to provide a measure of protection for the wearer's groin area as a last resort to reduce the risks associated with exposure to the threats identified in the Standard and the Threat Level.

Always wear the Ballistic Cup in the proper position with the long "tail" between the legs. Failure to wear the Ballistic Cup as directed may lead to serious injury or death.

Always choose the correct size Ballistic Cup for maximum protection. Inspect the Ballistic Cup for wear and damage prior to each use, and replace a worn or damaged Ballistic Cup immediately.

Do not use Ballistic Cups that have already been struck by a projectile, dropped, hit, chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged, because any such damage reduces the effectiveness of the Ballistic Cup, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.

Do not expose the Ballistic Cups to excessive heat, excessive cold, direct sunlight, or store it in an uncontrolled environment such a vehicle, because any such exposure may reduce the effectiveness of the Ballistic Cups, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.

Do not soak, submerge, wash, spray, or dry clean the Ballistic Cup. Do not expose the Ballistic Cups to bleach, detergents, or other cleaning solvents, because any such exposure may reduce the effectiveness of the Ballistic Cups, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.

The Ballistic Cup provides only limited protection against fragmenting munitions, and no protection against sharp-edged or pointed objects.

The Ballistic Cup is not "BULLET PROOF" even for those threats addressed by the Standard and the Threat Level. Stopping such projectiles will nearly always result in some form of injury to the body, including bruising, bleeding, internal injury, broken bones, or death.

The Ballistic Cup does not provide any protection for any area of the wearer's body not covered by the Ballistic Cup.

Awards

The original NuttyBuddy has won multiple awards for its high level of comfort and protection. Its anatomical design to conform to the body has proven to be worthy! The NuttyBuddy Ballistic will follow this same design to provide the same levels of comfort and protection in every situation.

I stand behind my product. Literally.
-Mark Littell

The NuttyBuddy Ballistic Cup was tested by NuttyBuddy inventor, Mark Littell, by standing five feet from a pitching machine taking a 90mph baseball to his groin. As Mark says, "I stand behind my product. Literally." The NuttyBuddy is the most protective cup out in the market, and just like the athletic cup can withstand a 90mph pitch, the Ballistic cup can withstand a bullet at specified velocities of 1400 to 1460 feet/second.
