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.

Very helpful product.

The brace assisted with some of the back pain/strain that I was experiencing, but did not remediate all of the pain. Primarily, it helped me with the pain caused by a more narrow duty belt and inner belt on the lower spine, but I am still experiencing some discomfort. Hopefully with additional resources and work outs, the pain/strain continues to reduce, but overall the belt was helpful.

Thank you for your honest review Jonathan!

Back brace

This is the best thing that I have every brought it helps my back.

Glad to hear it James! Stay safe.

I was looking for something to help with a lower back problem. This brace really helped. It tool a couple weeks to get used to it but now I don't think I could work without it on my belt. It helps keep my lower back straight and takes some weight of the hips. I would recommend this product to everyone even if you don't have back problems. Just give it a few weeks and I promise you will love it too.

Thank you

I have used the brace for about 2 weeks now and my back pain is minimal. The only downside is, it is extremely difficult to put on the back keepers, really impossible. I do not use back keepers BUT I have not any problems with slippage and really do not need them which turned out good. Wish I had this product at the first of my career.
