The male incontinence products industry, frankly, needs to grow a pair.
The co-founders of Capt. Johnson are young guys. Active guys. A doctor. A business guy. A Marine. All were acutely and personally aware of the challenges that incontinence can bring.
Prostate cancer? Kidney cancer? Injuries? We’ve been there, firsthand.
When we looked at the available products for managing incontinence, they were, in a word, lame.
We’re guys. We were looking for mens incontinence products that were able to do what we did. We wanted to keep biking. We wanted to keep skiing and snowboarding. We wanted to keep living. And when we looked at what the industry had to offer today, we found…diapers and feminine pads.
Um, yeah. That’s not us.
We designed Capt. Johnson’s Trouser Defenders with a few things in mind.
They had to match our lifestyle.
They had to be discreet.
And they had to work.
We found great partners who shared our vision and our worldview, and we built a product that met our needs, since nothing else out there did. We tested them firsthand. (Yes, really.) And in doing our research, it was clear that we were certainly not the only ones who were working through these issues.
It just seemed that we were the only ones talking about it.
So, we built a community. And we found out that there were tens…hundreds…thousands..of other men who were dealing with the same issues. So we started bringing people together — men with incontinence, partners and caregivers — and started to build a movement.
We are going to talk about this. We are going to address it. We are not going to shy from it.
And we’re not going to hide in the shadows any more.
This is a real thing. We did NOT ask to have this issue. We did not sign up somewhere and say, “Oh, cancer with incontinence would be GREAT!” So let’s deal with it for real. Let’s address it head on. Let’s slay the dragons that are out there.
