Level 1 vs. Level 2 Comparison


Hi, My name is Jeremiah Raber, and I am the Founder and CEO of Nutshellz. In this video I am going to explain the differences between our level 1 and level 2 cups and go over who they are designed for.

The shape and size of our Level 1 and Level 2 cups are exactly the same and both offer the ergonomic taper that prevents rubbing or pinching.  The real difference is what’s inside their build.

The Nutshellz Level 1 cup is made with a Ballistic Kevlar core and our Level 2 cup is made with a ballistic Dyneema core. The Kevlar laminate used in our level 1 cups is bullet resistant and 6 x stronger than steel by weight and it’s the perfect recipe for any athlete wanting to level up his protection. The Level 1 cup does have a bullet resistance capable of stopping a .45 caliber handgun.

The Dyneema core in the Level 2 cup has double the break strength as Kevlar and the material is 50% lighter. This cup is best suited for law enforcement and military use due to its ability to stop faster moving projectile threats.  The level 2 cup is rated to protect against a 9mm bullet.

The easiest way to summarize this is that the level 1 cups are designed to be used by athletes who need groin protection for their sport.  This is THE strongest athletic cup on the market.

The level 2 cups are recommended for military or law enforcement applications because they offer a higher bullet resistance rating that goes way above and beyond what would be needed in any athletic setting.
