BackUp Smooth Leather Back Support with Belt Keepers

  • $ 69.95

By placing the "BackUp" on your utility belt, you turn your duty belt into a 4" weight lifting belt which will support the lower back. The same amount of pressure on your back is now spread over an area of 60 square inches, as opposed to 30 square inches. This will help prevent back strain caused by heavy lifting, wrestling suspects, or the day to day strain of bending, twisting and getting in and out of patrol vehicles. 

It is also designed to distribute the weight of the utility belt that is caused by the required equipment worn by law enforcement officers. The brace does not change the duty belt - equipment can be placed on your duty belt without any limitations. 

The BackUp works equally well with or without an inner belt.

BackUp Smooth Leather Back Support with Belt Keepers

I purchased this back brace for my son who is in law enforcement, it was suggested by his FTO. He is exceptionally pleased with this brace and the positive difference it is making by supporting his back!

Thanks Lacey - you're a good mom! This does indeed make a great gift for a LEO, and we're super happy to hear it was FTO recommended. Thanks for the comment!
What a difference it makes!!

As soon as I put on my Backupbrace, I noticed a difference right away! My duty belt felt much lighter and more comfortable.

The first day I wore it I was doing a foot patrol assignment where I was walking around for almost 8 hours straight. At the end of my shift that day my back had no back pain like it normally does.

On an everyday use the Backupbrace does the trick. It's comfortable sitting in the scout car for extended periods and I no longer am begging to take off my belt a few hours into my shift.

I was so happy with my belt I raved about it to my partner at work and he ended up getting one as well! He seems to be even happier than me with his. He has a slightly larger waste and taller frame and the bigger belt seems to work even better for him.

I would highly recommend this product for any law enforcement officers who wear a duty belt.

Excellent product!

Jer, thanks for the awesome review, and the cool pick of the BackUpBrace in action. We're glad you both love it - thanks for sharing!
Awesome belt

I’ve been in 15 years and I should have been wearing this support belt from the beginning. My back instantly started feeling better the moment I put it on. Great product, thank you for making it it!!

Thank YOU for reviewing it, and we're very glad it's helping. Merry Christmas!
Does what the it says.

Helps keep my belt up on my waist. Helps weight distribution for long shifts. Very sturdy material that can survive the wear and tear on the street.

Hi Jordan - thank you for the review, we really appreciate it and glad to hear you are loving the brace!
Best Money I have spent

I have only been using this product for 2 weeks but I can tell you it is well worth it. I have had back problems for some time and now with the BackUp Brace....NO more!!! I would recommend it to anyone that wears a duty belt. Only problem and I have worked it out was getting the keepers on the first time. Again, best money I have spent on equipment in a long time.

'Again, best money I have spent on equipment in a long time.' - wow, we love that! Thanks Dominick!
