Just what I needed

The Backupbrace definitely helps my lower back when driving in my sqaud and walking around. Would definitely recommend.

Thanks for sharing Edwin, and we are very pleased to hear about your excellent results using the BackUpBrace!

Great Brace

So far so good. Injured my back a few years ago that surgery will not fix. I needed to find something that would assist in alleviating the pressure on my back. The BackUpBrace has done just that when using my duty belt. It’s comfortable, supportive, and matches my basketweave duty belt. I definitely recommend it.

Sorry to hear about your injury, Keola, but we're thrilled that the BackUpBrace is giving you the support you need!


Product is great. Definitely offered a relief to my lower back. I have down sixteen hours shift and my back does not hurt the following day

Wow, 16 hours! Thanks for the review Francisco, and please stay safe out there!

Career Saver

As soon as I put it on I immediately felt all the weight of the belt come off my lower back. Before this, I was worried about how much longer I could actually go on wearing my duty belt. The backup brace has truly been a career saver.

Thanks for the kind feedback Alisa!


The best back support for the duty belt. Immediately relieved the pressure. Excellent buy!

Thanks for sharing James, glad to hear it gave you great relief!

Overall super comfortable

I’ve had the back up brace for a few months now and I’ve got to stay it has been great! The quality is top notch and no problems with the actual brace itself. My on compliant is the Velcro on the belt keeps are already starting to wear from daily use. I suggest possibly making it with a snap or another type of locking mechanism. Also added more slits to slide the belt keepers into for the ability to place the belt keepers in different areas. Where the slit opens gets in the way of my belt loop on my pants and have to adjust my belt often to put the belt keeper in

Thank you for the review Robert!

WOW game changer for my lower back.

I’ve had struggle with lower back pain for some time. While working standing on my feet for hours at a time I would come home with lower back pain. Since I’ve ordered the Backup brace I’ve been working those long hours standing on feet and the backup brace has significantly reduced my lower back. If you are skeptical about getting a backup brace I encourage you to get one.

Great to hear Jon, and thanks for sharing the photo!

Good product had to alter mine

Bought the smooth leather.
Works great helps all day.
I had to have a shoemaker sew M/F velcro on both sides since my smooth leather duty belt has a inner velcro.
*Would suggest more options for velcro per unit and actual deminsion on sizes and belt mounting options and belt keeper holes should be bigger.

Hi Jones,

Thanks for the suggestions, we always love getting product feedback, and we try to make improvements wherever possible. Glad we still got a top rating from you, thank you!

Wrong item

Ordered velcro keepers, received snap keepers. Emailed back up brace about problem and never received a response back

Sorry to hear that! We don't always get it right, but we can always make it right. Please contact us through our website and we can resolve this issue for you.

Thanks for the rating Manuel!

Poor quality

The brace actually made my back hurt more than normal. The quality of the brace is poor, after one shift the basket weave finish began peeling away from the foam backing. The Velcro is reverse of what my Safariland inner and duty belt would require to attach it. I have a 35” waist and got the 34” and up size and it pushed against my holster as it was to long.

Sorry it did not work for you Matt! Did you contact us for your return/refund?

Great Product

Awesome merchant

Wow, thanks Kevin! You made our day :)

Back Relief

I bought the backup brace for my fiancé a few weeks ago, after weeks of him coming home from work complaining of back pain from his duty belt. From the first night he wore it complaints of his pain have stopped! Incredible product that he highly recommends.

Thanks for sharing Alexus, we're so glad it helped, and fast! And thanks for sharing the photo too.

Great product. Been using religously

I've been using the Backup Brace for a little over a year now. Although it isn't the end all be all for back pain, I ave had 3 back surgeries in my life, so I know a thing or 2 about back pain. I will say that the brace definetly helps with posture, and in my case, I have an exterior vest carrier, so I can also keep all equipment off of my lower back and really get the full effects of the Backup Brace. It molds well to your body and belty and isn't painful or bulky. The belt keepers are a bit of a trick at first, but once you get it, you get it and won't be an issue in the future.

Thank you Matthew! Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that BackUpBrace can offer relief even after the unfortunate need for multiple back surgeries. Wishing you the best, and stay safe out there!

BackUpBrace is a back saver

I have had the BackUpBrace for many year's and love this product. Having two herniated disc in my lower back this product has been such a life saver for distribution of weight on my duty belt.

Hi Olix, thanks for taking the time to write your review. Herniated discs can be a career-ending condition, and we are very pleased to hear that the BackUpBrace has made a difference to your comfort and pain levels. Stay safe!

Disperses Weight of Duty Belt

I bought this for my husband and this is what he had to say: The BackUpBrace has been instrumental in relieving lower back pain especially while in the patrol car. This brace disperses the full weight of the duty belt and takes the pressure of the lower vertebrae. Since having it several co-workers have asked how I like it and I have nothing but praise for the brace, I have recommended the BackUpBrace to anyine who asks. The only con will depend on what you carry on your duty belt as it can make space very tight, I was able to get everything configured after spending some time adjusting items on the belt.

Thank you (and thank your husband for us, please) for the comments and your service. Stay safe!


Got this to help take some extra tension off my back. Works great. Barely notice it on but I certainly have much less back pain on duty and after my shift. You need this!

Hi J Ray, thanks for the feedback! Glad it's working great for you.

Worth every penny

Spreads the load of your duty belt across your back. Super comfortable. Not the best picture, but im not flexible enough to turn my body around and snap a photo with me wearing it.

Thanks for sharing the photo and your thoughts Dave - glad you did not injure yourself trying to take a photo of the brace in place! :)

Back Brace

Just started to use it, I'll know better in a week or so.

Alleviates pressure

One of the things that some of the reviews do not mention that I like about the brace is that it prevents things from sliding into your back as well as keeping things nice and snug on the sides. Should have started using this sooner.

Thanks for the feedback Jared, great looking setup!

Better back brace

I work as LEO and with every sam brown, I have a back brace. This people is very fasta in their shipping. I would recommend this seller any time.

Thanks Sara!

No more back pain

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.

Works Great

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.
