About this project

UFC Fighter Shoots His Nutshellz with .45 caliber

How It All Began

Nutshellz first sprouted up when a concept was conceived to design a more improved and innovative groin protector. Athletes in all types of impact sports are experiencing groin related injuries from existing product failures resulting in but not limited to: surgical repair, infertility, and loss of testosterone production. It is also popular opinion that cups in general are not comfortable to wear and often restrict mobility. Nutshellz has solved both major concerns when it comes to groin protectors! Our cup is not only strong enough to stop bullets but it also has a unique design and contour that allows it to rest comfortably in position without restricting an athlete's mobility no matter what the movement or sport.

Protecting a Younger Generation

Nutshellz is raising funds in order to successfully complete the development of our youth model groin protector. Funds raised will go towards the purchase of new tooling and materials necessary for the manufacturing of this product.

Proven Track Record

Nutshellz has already successfully created, and is currently manufacturing and selling, an adult version of this product. We will employ the same material sciences and manufacturing technology used in the existing products in order to bring the new youth model to the marketplace.

Risks and challenges

Potential risks foreseen could include delays in production resulting from delays in the creation and shipment of new manufacturing equipment needed to produce the product. These delays would not be entirely in our control so in efforts to avoid such an occurrence we will price the equipment through several outside companies with the same capabilities. Having other options available for purchasing equipment through will prevent us from being at the mercy of a single supplier.
