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.

Why Did I Wait So Long?

For years I have worn duty belts as a reservist in the military. I knew that there was one thing I could always count on after hours of running Search and Rescue cases: Lower back pain!

I accepted this as a necessary evil and tolerated it due to experiencing it only two days out of the month. However, when I was sworn as an officer at a local PD, I sought a remedy for my lower back pain as it would now be a much more frequent affair. I eventually found this product and was hesitant to buy it due to the seemingly cumbersome design and somewhat high price point. I will tell you now that it was worth every penny.

I attached the Backup Brace and no longer experience back pain despite carrying more equipment on my belt and wearing it for much longer hours. The Backup Brace does a great job of distributing the weight of the duty belt along a wider area, and not just pressing inwards on my lower back.

I have since recommended this product to my fellow officers and all have had positive experiences-- most notably, the veteran officers who have dealt with back pain for years.

All in all, I highly recommend the Backup Brace to anyone who wears a duty belt and is looking for a solution to lower-back pain and discomfort.

Nick - thank you for your service first of all. Secondly, thank you for the review, and the great pic of your setup. Much appreciated!

I purchase the BackUp Brace for officers of the Fort Myers Police Department. Any officer whom complains of a back issue finds relief with the brace. The different size for men and women makes a difference.

Good quality product.

It does exactly what it is advertised to do.

The only products that I have found to work similar are over $90 and are lower quality than this one.

My wife has worn the brace for about a month now. She absolutely loves it! She's noticed a significant difference in her back and hips. Even while sitting in her cruiser for a 12 hr shift, she's noticed a positive difference. Her fellow co-workers are talking about ordering one for themselves.

Great Product

I have had it for one month so far and it is great. Felt relief the first day I wore it and has given me great support on my back. Would recommend to all my friends.
