BackUp Basket Weave 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.

Poor shipping

I payed for 2 day shipping and the backup brace was delivered in 6 days. No money have been returned or suggested. I have been wearing the backup brace for a week and have noticed no change in my lower back pain.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our records show we the order was received the evening of 2/27, and processed at 5:55am the following day. Unfortunately we have no control over the carrier, and in this case the item was delivered on 3/4. We apologize for the inconvenience and have refunded the difference in shipping to your account. We hope you obtain relief from the product, and please remember you have 90 days to return it for a full refund if you are not 100% satisfied. Many thanks.
Thank you!

Great product! Relieves pressure on lower back. Thank you!

Thanks for your review and for submitting a picture of our brace in use - that is much appreciated!
Works good

I use it in conjunction with a pair of tactical suspenders and it works good.

Thanks for your review and photos Joe!
It works!!

A little big, requiring you to reconfigure some of the gear on the belt. Well made and made of a non slip material on the inside. My belt does NOT move around! I have had this for two weeks now, and it takes getting used to BUT, I no longer wake up with any lumbar pain after shift! Works as promised!!

Thank you for your honest review - we very much appreciate it and glad the BackUp is working well for you!

I was suffering from lower back pain during and after my shifts on my days off. Once I purchased the backup brace, the pain immediately stopped! I didn’t feel any pain on my days or during my shifts. To me, the backup brace makes the duty belt more secure and comfortable. The only downside I can think of is the keepers can be difficult to get on at times but I’m getting better at it.

Thanks for the review! Yes - the keepers can take a little time to get used to, but we are glad you're back ache is gone! Thanks for the photo - the weave looks awesome.
