The back up brace is such an amazing product. I purchased this with skepticism but needed to try something. Prior to the brace, I was experiencing pinching in my low back and nerve pain extending down and through my legs. It was hard to come to work because I was in so much pain. The brace on the first day immediately took away the pressure and painful pinching. After about 3 weeks of wearing it, my back pain has diminished greatly. I am 5’3 with a 27 inch waist and was unsure if this product would work for me, but it’s wonderful. Smaller stature officers would benefit from this completely. Cannot thank this company enough. This product will improve your quality of life and experience on the road.
Have had the lumbar support pillow for about a month. Very happy because it really provides good back support while I sit in my recliner. It has also made the seats in my wife's minivan much more bearable.
I recently had a major back issue that caused me to miss several days of work. Some of my co-workers have the back brace so it was the 1st thing that came to my mind when I was looking for a preventative measure. They all have good things to say so hopefully it will help me too!
I just switched from an outer carrier back to a belt, due to a change in assignment. I’m not sure I would be able to wear my belt without the BackUpBrace. My back thanks you.
As a 40 + year veteran of Law Enforcement, this is the first time, in a very long time that my back does not hurt at end of shift.
I was a little skeptical about this brace at first, but I decided to try it out and I’m very glad I did! I felt an immediate difference the moment I put my duty belt on with the backup brace. My lower back pain did not persist like it normally does throughout my shift and made the duty belt feel like it was lighter. I can now stand with my duty belt without experiencing any discomfort or shooting pains in my lower back.
I told my co-workers about the backup brace and they too love the product.
Thank you for making the Backup Brace!
Great product. Before the backupbrace I'd come home after a shift limping from hip and lower back pain. Now, after using this product for about a month, the pain is not gone but greatly reduced. Took some getting used to and had to completely reconfigure my duty belt, but it was worth it. Recommending this product to all my partners.
Since I’ve had this brace my back pain has been mitigated. I can go to work and be more confident knowing my back isn't a ticking time bomb.
I bought this at the recommendation of a fellow officer who couldn’t stop talking about it. I had my doubts but after wearing it a few shifts in patrol, I immediately noticed a difference. It takes a lot of the pressure of the back. Takes some time to get used to it on your duty but it is well worth it and your back will thank you.
I’m a 32 year veteran police officer who spends a lot of time on his feet. We carry about 30 pounds of gear for daily operations. This has been a great relief for the back. I’d like to see one that goes all the way around.
After years of working patrol and wearing a duty belt I developed chronic lower back pain. I reached the point that my right leg would go numb while walking around on duty. I spent my days off laying on the couch because any movement was too painful. I then moved to a special division and was freed from the dreaded duty belt. After numorous visits to the chiropractor and massage therapist the pain was reduced to a manageable level. Years past and then came the promotion that forced me to put the duty belt back on once again. I purchased the backup support brace for my duty belt and have wore it for over a month now. I have not had any back pain since wearing the back up support brace. I highly recommend it to anyone wearing a duty belt.
I have definitely noticed a difference when using this belt. It distributes the weight and supports your back. I can wear my belt longer. Thank God for this belt.
I like it. It messes with my body armor sometimes but it takes the pressure off of my lower back. I had a specific area in my lower back that would kill me after a 6 day stretch. Now I can feel that my back is worked but the muscles are just fatigued not painful.
I found this after suffering a minor back injury and overall back aches for years. This has been the savior to my job, it spreads the weight out across a much larger area and does not press down straight on my spine anymore I love what it does for me and I will tell everyone who asks me about it that they need to get one. I also found when you pair it with the Blauer suspenders and outer vest carrier it makes the perfect pair because it helps blend the defender in with the uniform and spreads the weight out even better. So if you can't tell I would give this a 10 out of 10 hands down. I also have not had to go back to the chiropractor since starting to use this back defender.
So far so good! Helps distribute weight well. I can also still place my cuff pouches over the brave area. I still have some back pain but have noticed improvement with the back up brace.
Told a few coworkers and they are going to get one. It has helped my lower back 100% and keeps my belt secure. Love it
Great addition to my duty belt. Really helps with the weight distribution. My chronic back pain is going away more each day. Would highly recommend to other LEOs
The BackUp Support Brace has been a great addition to my duty belt. Being in Law Enforcement for 32+ years the old lower back has seen it's better days. The BackUp Brace, now in my second full week of wearing it daily, has given me great added support and allows the width of the the brace to spread the weight of all the equipment more evenly. The fatigue on my lower back at the end of each shift is now very minimal and at the end of week has left me with little discomfort or pain. (Much less than before) I only wish I would have added this 'back saver' years ago. I highly recommend it! Stay safe my fellow brothers and sisters! ~
For about the first week I was a little sore, most likely because of the change in weight distribution, but I’m about a month in now and it feels normal. Great tool for lower back issues can’t reccomend enough.
