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:

This is a huge help with my lower back pain. I used to feel intense pain in the middle of my lower back but this helped spread out the pressure of my belt. I felt a difference immediately.
I purchased this as a gift for a fellow officer who is on the bit of the smaller side and she told me she doesn’t feel any back pain anymore. I’m going to buy one for myself!
This back up brace is a god send. I’ve been working in LEO for over 5 years and been having issues with my lower back. This product helps tremendously. I highly recommend this product.
I have only worn the BackUp Brace for a short amount of time but that’s irrelevant compared to the difference this product has made for my back! I was skeptical of purchasing and actually put it off for many, many months but I am so glad I finally bought it!
This Brace has made all the difference for me! I needed a new set of keepers due to my own scattered brain, bit was able to get some new ones on the quick!
The back brace is easy to put on a gun belt and stays in place. It helps spread the load out without any hot spots.
This brace has worked wonders for me and I’ve only had it for about 2 weeks. I was at a point where I could only stand about 1-2 hours with my belt on. Now a 10 hour shift is doable . Between the added support and the pressure distribution on my lower back it’s a real life saver. I won’t work without it in the future.
I was experiencing almost crippling sciatica. I purchased the backup brace because my duty belt was putting stress on the muscles in my hips. I love the backup brace! It released that pressure and has helped me on the road to recovery.
I bought this based on the countless positive reviews. I noticed a substantial difference as soon as I put it on. By the end of the shift, I was sold. It makes a YUUUGE difference!
Tried the leather brace for two weeks, duty belt felt so much easier to wear. Relief was so noticeable I bought another brace for my nylon rig.
This back brace has relieved so much pressure off my lower back. I am able to stand, while on major scenes for much longer than before without having to stretch. I am able to get in and out of my patrol vehicle without discomfort. This is a great product and I highly recommend it to anyone having lower back pain.
I purchased this product to see if it could help with back pain after being injured in a few rear end traffic collisions. It has helped because it distributes the weight of the gun belt over a wider surface. Our departments should make it part of our uniform issue. The keepers need to be a bit longer but the brace is worth buying. All you new police officers get this product it will save your back.
After a brief adjustment period. What a difference! Thanks BackUpBrace for make my day better and relieving my pain. You have an amazing product.
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.
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.
