The BackUp back support product is a premium quality product designed by law enforcement officers, for law enforcement officers. It is a well known fact that police officers suffer from lower back pain as a result of:
- The extra and unbalanced weight of equipment they have to carry
- The type of physical activity required
The BackUp has your back. Here's how it works:
JOURNAL OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE RESEARCH STUDY
"Eighty six percent of the (police) officers in the present study report having had trouble with their lower back and associated lower back pain."
DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS 1991 CALIFORNIA WORK INJURIES
"Back and spine were the most frequently injured body parts with 26 percent of total workers compensation cases."
"Over exertion was the leading type of accident."
The easiest way to combat lower back pain is to increase the support offered by the Sam Browne.
AUBURN UNIVERSITY RESEARCH
"Analysis of industrial injury data issued by companies utilizing lumbar/abdominal support belts have shown reductions up to 40% in the incidence of disabling back injury."
"...The belts reduce spinal compression during the lifting of heavy objects."

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.
After wearing my backup brace for a week, I noticed the relief of the weight from my duty belt. Still having back pain, but it's a lot less now. It really does work.
I've been wearing a duty belt for 11 years in a correctional setting. Lots of time on my feet as well as in a seated position. Needless to say, time takes its toll on everyone; and my duty belt was taking it's toll on my back!
I've been wearing the Backup Brace for close to a month now and I immediately feel a difference in comfort for my back. No more soreness/ pain that I felt before the B.U.B.
If you're skeptical, take it from an 11 year veteran who's on his feet all day: This is legit.
I have been a state trooper for roughly three years and started getting back pain soon after the academy. The Backup Brace has significantly reduced my pain during my shifts as well as when I am done working. I am routinely asked what "that thing" on my back is and if it helps. It does! I recommend it to my friends so I have no problem recommending it to anyone out there reading this! For only $70 try it out. Last thing, I come from a department which is big on uniformity, the patent leather blended in well with the rest of my belt. Thanks and hope this helps others looking!
This product is great, wish I had this 2 years ago, have arthritis I my lower back and this is helping tremendously!!!!
I find the backup brace to be as good as advertised. I have found in the week that I wore it on duty, it helped me tremendously. I had no back discomfort or pain. Highly recommended.
Deputy for over 9 years, started having lower back pain last year. Chiropractor said it was from duty belt. Was gonna buy suspenders but not allowed over the shirt by policy and didn't want to spend $300 on the under uniform suspenders. Saw the ad and figured the price was worth the shot. After a week of use I noticed a lessening of the back pain on duty and after shift. At almost 3 weeks it's pretty much gone. Worth the investment
My back was killing me before I got this. No back pain anymore!
My husband says it definitely helps with his back. He has only worn it for one week but says so far it's helped!
I wish I had this brace 20 years ago. Every officer with back issues should try one. I knew I would not be returning it after the first shift.
3 weeks in and I m very pleased with the results of wearing Back Up Brace! It has made a difference in my lower back pain.
I am having a sciatica issue from my new vest but it's from before I bought the brace. I've been wearing the brace for almost two weeks and I could feel a difference As soon as I put it on. Feels like there's no weight sitting on my rear anymore. Now when this sciatica issue goes away, I should feel 100%!!!
This Back Up Brace is the bomb, I have problems with my L-5, S1 vertebra and this Back Up Brace helps with the weight of my duty belt to relieve the pressure on my lower back, Ive had it for only two weeks now and this is the longest Ive been able to wear my duty belt full time. Im still able to keep all my gear in its place. I have told my other co-workers about it and showed them how it works. My boss said he would check to see if the company would order one for everyone and I could use this one for my personal use. Will write back after 30 day trial
First week in wearing the backup brace, all my back pain is gone even after a 12 hr shift. This product really helps distribute the weight and now I can carry more gear without pain. Just be sure to wear your belt tight enough so it can do its job.!!!!
The BackUp was designed to seamlessly convert the standard police duty belt into a supportive weight lifting belt, without:
- inhibiting the functionality of the belt itself
- adding any noticeable weight
- affecting the image of the uniform (as is the case with suspenders and weight bearing vests)
These quality products come with a 90 day money back guarantee, and will offer years of support.
