I wear a heavily front and side loaded belt that was causing back pain. Since receiving your product, I can honestly say that the back pain has gone away
Thank you Richard, for sharing your experience with the BackUpBrace. Stories like yours keep us motivated and happy! Stay safe.
Wasn't to sure about this product but thought I would give it a try, several of my coworkers have it and recommended it. This brace is probabily the best investment towards duty gear I have made. The product arrived in a timely fashion and fits perfectly. It weight on my lower back is almost nonexistent and the constricting feeling of the regular duty belt is more evenly distributed arou d the waist. The only problem is the belt keepers that come with the set are extremely tough to snap around the belt, I have Bianchi brand. I highly recommend.
Michael, we are honored that you took the time to write this review, and we are very happy to hear about your positive experience with the BackUpBrace. Thanks for sharing!
Just purchased this item and it helped relieve lower back pain right away. I highly recommend it!
Awesome! Thanks for sharing Sean. We find that most of our customers experience relief after wearing it for some period, usually a week or two, while others find the relief to be instant. Glad you were one of the lucky ones that had instant relief! Stay safe.
I had a back injury in November, I purchased the back up brace to wear on shift. It helps with pain thoughout the shift and minimizes how stiff my back is after work. I recommend if you have back problems or want to prevent back problems.
Sorry to hear about your injury Patrick, but we are very happy the BackUpBrace could help relieve your back pain after the fact.
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.
Thanks for sharing Ashley! If we can relieve your back pain then we have done our job!
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!
That's great to hear, thanks for share Mike!
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.
That's great to hear, thanks Jerome. Wishing you a happy 2022!
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!
Glad you finally decided to give it a try, and happy you got the result you were looking for. Happy 2022!
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!
Thanks Steven, we appreciate the review. Glad the brace is helping you out!
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.
Thanks for the review John, and we're glad you love it!
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.
That's excellent news, thanks for the review Ryan. We've heard from so many that the brace actually allows longer shifts, and a longer career! Thank you for sharing.
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.
Yes, great news! So glad the product has helped. Thanks for the review Kyle!
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.
That's awesome, thanks for sharing Eric!
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.
Glad it worked so well for you Eddie, and thank you for the review!
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.
Thank you for your review!
After a brief adjustment period. What a difference! Thanks BackUpBrace for make my day better and relieving my pain. You have an amazing product.
Thanks Jeff, you just made our day! We appreciate the feedback, and thank you for your service, especially on the heels of National Police Week. Stay safe!
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
It's happened several times now where our clients mention words like 'career saver' and it really makes us very proud here at BackUpBrace. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Stay safe!
The back brace definitely helped but I had more pain relief from suspenders and will be switching back.
Thanks for your honest review Jack.
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.
Thank you for the wonderful review. That, and the fact that our product has helped you in some small way, really made our day!
That's awesome. Email us on email@example.com and we can get you a discount code for that second brace.
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!
Wow, thanks for the great review! We really appreciate it. Stay safe out there.
Our officers have reported the BACKUPBRACE helps distribute the weight on their duty belts and they experience less lower back pain.
Glad to hear the positive feedback from the field!
Definitely worth the money. I suffer from lower back pain and this back brace really does help.
Thanks for your review Faustino - we're so glad it's alleviating that back pain!
The product is stiff, and requires a lot of effort to assemble your duty belt. I was told by another individual that it requires some breaking in. It does it’s job, but it does require some work to use.
Hi PSO Beck,
Thank you for your review. It can take some work to get the brace just the way you like it, but the long term benefits are worth it!
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.
Renee, we somehow missed your review and it has taken us so long to respond, apologies for that! But now that we found it, it seems Christmas has come early :) We absolutely love reading stories like the one you posted her - it makes the work we put into the BackUpBrace all worth it.
We hope you continue to enjoy the support of the BackUpBrace for many years to come. Merry Christmas and a safe and happy 2021!
