The BackUpBrace 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 BackUpBrace 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."

17 years on the job. Lower back pain started recently. Could not make it an entire shift wearing my duty belt. First day with
The backupbrace and pain went away. I’ve been wearing for a couple weeks now and I feel normal again. This will be a permanent part of the uniform
As a cop who works in a city setting and has the unfortunate pleasure of running the radio non stop and the occasional foot post this brace has helped me tremendously! I am currently dealing with a lumbar herniation that has required several injections with a lot of pain. I have only been wearing this brace coupled with a Velcro inner belt a short time however the difference is night and day for me. Spreads the weight of my rig out and keeps my belt in place through out my tour. I can’t attest to the longevity of the brace yet and those of us in active departments know how quickly we wear out gear but I would absolutely buy again for the relief this has brought me. If you’re debating on purchasing this brace I would definitely recommend it! The only issue I found is, it’s a bit challenging to get the 2 rear keepers in looped onto my inner belt but I’ve found the Velcro inner with keepers on both sides of the brace are plenty secure for me.
I am extremely satisfied with the backup brace I do not have any back pains while wearing the backup brace during my 8 hour shifts. The backup brace is definitely worth the money and a great product investment that works very well!
Our officers have reported the BACKUPBRACE helps distribute the weight on their duty belts and they experience less lower back pain.
Definitely worth the money. I suffer from lower back pain and this back brace really does help.
This brace is worth every penny. I slipped a disc in my lower back years ago and it has never fully recovered. I have facet joint syndrome now in one of my discs. My duty belt was getting to the point of nearly unbearable but I couldn’t find a solution because it wasn’t the weight of the belt, so suspenders weren’t helping, it was the pressure of it being right on the Center of my lower back. This brace literally fixed the issue. I can’t say enough good.
Brace I've worn for like 5 shifts already now but fell in love with it first day. Wish I had gotten one long time ago. Referral program? Not sure how that works as I know of 2 colleagues that have already used my link to order one for themselves. Referred others but know these guys already did...
Nice product though.
This was hands down the best money I have ever spent. I tweaked my back after an on duty injury a few years "back" it has never been the same. This go round I needed to try something different. Even though I am a detective, I started wearing my full belt to have access to all tools because of all the nonsense going on right now. Since I got this brace, I prefer to wear my full belt over even a regular belt with no tools. It places all the weight on my hips and relieves all the tension off my back. Don't hesitate, just buy it. You will not regret it.
I always wondered why co-workers had so many positive things to say about the product. I ordered one wondering if I too would have the same good experience they did. I received my product about a week and a half ago, and it’s my new favourite thing. It provides a lot of support to my lower back/S.I. Joints and makes my duty belt feel a lot lighter. Sitting in chairs or in a cruiser for long periods of time with it isn’t such a task anymore. I would purchase another one but would love for a smaller size than currently available, as it takes up quite a bit of space on my belt, I can’t add any more equipment. Overall, I’m happy with the purchase.
My wife bought the backup brace for me due to ongoing back pain.
To my surprise, the brace seemed to stabilize my hips more than anything. The weight of my duty gear has been wearing on my back. The brace seems to balance out the weight on my hips, which in turn, helps to alleviate the stress on my back.
I should have listened to the wife and got the brace 4 years ago.
This brace is awesome . It helps relieve my back pain while being on my feet all night, going up and down steps. I highly recommend it.
We have purchased these for testing. We haven't received feedback yet, but I can say that one trooper who was testing the backup brace previously told us how wonderful it was and how it really took the pressure off of his hips. I will submit another review once the other 10 troopers test the product.
Purchased this brace after 20 years in Law Enforcement and started to have back pain. Immediate relief!! Helps with posture while standing or sitting a patrol car. It also reliefs pressure from equipment (i.e. handcuffs, flashlights & such) near you back. After a few years of using it, I changed belts & didn’t have a matching brace & started noticing problems again. Immediate went back to my belt with the brace, which quickly relieved issues. When I did, I contacted the company & spoke with the owner & he bent over backwards to help. He was very polite & wanted to make sure I was taken care of. The product & customer service earns 5 stars in my book & I would recommend this to anyone starting out (to prevent issues) or those who are having issues.
This was for an elderly lady (93) in a nursing home. She complained that her back really hurt and needed a pillow or something! Anyway decided to try this when I saw it. She says it has helped her so much and her back feels much better. Thank you for this product!
The BackUpBrace 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 30 day money back guarantee, and will offer years of support.
