BackUp Nylon 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.

Wish I had one 8 years ago!

Excellent product that actually works. Not just another “tactical” gadget that does no good. I was referred by a coworker and now I will spread the word about yalls product as I’m now a beleber. Thank you!

Dennis, thanks so much for your comments. Please do spread the word. Almost 90% of our sales come from referrals, because you are quite correct, it actually does work :)
Saved my back during my shifts on patrol

Bought this belt after recently starting my career in law enforcement. I have a 32" waist and the size small brace fits perfect as described above! Using this brace took all the pressure of my duty belt off my lower back and has made a huge difference for me at work.

Nick, props for taking preventative care here. It's a very wise decision and one we know you will value in the years to come. And thanks for the photo - looks awesome!
Buy It!

Great customer service, prompt delivery, rugged and professional looking item, durable, easy to set up, fits comfortably, reduced acute back pain and chronic aches that we all experience and increases my ability to perform my job consistently day in day out. Thank you!!

Billy, thanks for your comments!
Helping the loaded back

I bought the brace several weeks back and waited to give it a review. Well, I know it works because I bought a nylon one, which is the belt I use the most. However, over the past few weeks, I have been wearing my leather (which does not have a brace). My back has been aching. I went back to wearing my nylon and it got much better. So in my non-scientific test, it works for me.

The only cons I have is that I have to put the brace on my inner belt with my trousers off. I would like to see it for around $40, but hey it works and worth the cost.

David, thank you for publishing the results of your excellent scientific research :) We are very glad the brace continues to offer you great support!
Pain nearly gone

I was skeptical of the reviews honestly and was hesistant to spend 70 dollars. Best money ever spent. My back pain is nearly 100% gone. Noticed an improvement on the third day wearing it. Literally can’t believe it helped my back this much. Only complaints is the keepers are a pain to put on and take off if you use the bathroom. Been wearing it three weeks now and my back feels 95% better. Thank you, you saved my career.

Wow, Brenton that's really great to hear. We're always happy when a customer is happy, but when we can make such an impact on a member of law enforcement - that's something special. Thank you for both your message, and for your sacrifice!
