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.

Now that I have your attention with the Title, I would like to review the back up brace.
I am 47yo been doing Police type work since the early 90s when I entered the Marine Corps as a MP. In 1998 I started Municipal Police work In Pennsylvania. First part time, then Full time for University of Penn Police Department, in 2003 I was hired at my current department.
As any other Police officer with time, my lower back kills me. I have tried everything, heating pads, Icy hot, lidocaine patches. Earlier this year I ordered the suspender system for under the vest and shirt. I made it about 3 hours before I came back to the Station and stripped the damn suspender system off and hung them in my locker where they continue to hang and collect dust. (For me personally they were constricting and I felt like I couldn’t get comfortable)
In August I was on vacation in Outer Banks North Carolina laying in bed trying to sleep and was trolling Facebook. An ad popped up for the back up brace. So I ordered it.
To Date, I have worn it on patrol for almost 120hrs. Although it’s not a miraculous cure for back pain. I can say from my experience is that I feel my pain is there but I don’t feel as feeble at the end of a 10hr shift.
My only negative comment is the belt keepers they provided. I cannot feed them through the brace and belt. I use the keepers I have always used and go on either side of the brace.
I am a completely satisfied with back up brace and will continue to wear it every shift. When others ask when they see it I tell them how happy I am. Good luck to all who try it.

Daly, thank you for you honest and detailed review. Love the title :P In what way can we improve the keepers?
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!
