Any standard cross-fit supporter and cup that you can get from your local sporting good store for around $20 will work fine. It is definitely better than not wearing one.
If you want to go the combined compression shorts and cup, I suggest this: Shock Doctor Compression Shorts with Flex Cup
. I use these myself, and I'm probably going to order a second set for when my first is in the laundry. If you're doing any sort of throws/breakfalls you'll appreciate the compression shorts. They help avoiding the situation where the inside of your thighs play a game of "ping pong" with your testicles when you take a fall.
It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree
... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved
