BackUp Basket Weave Back Support with Belt Keepers
|By placing the "BackUp" on your utility belt, you turn your duty belt into a 4" weight lifting belt which will support the lower back. The same amount of pressure on your back is now spread over an area of 60 square inches, as opposed to 30 square inches. This will help prevent back strain caused by heavy lifting, wrestling suspects, or the day to day strain of bending, twisting and getting in and out of patrol vehicles.|
It is also designed to distribute the weight of the utility belt that is caused by the required equipment worn by law enforcement officers. The brace does not change the duty belt - equipment can be placed on your duty belt without any limitations.
The BackUp works equally well with or without an inner belt.
The BackUp is the back support item of choice for thousands of law enforcement officers throughout North America.

Personally not a fan of the look. It appears large and obtrusive in a class A uniform. As far as helping your Back I would say it may provide some support but nothing extrodinary in my opinion. I know there are people that worship it according to reviews, I am not on the bandwagon. I bought it, so I will use it however I doubt I would buy it again. Seems they could come up with a better design that flowed more with the duty belt and was not such an eye sore. Just my 2 cents.
I bought this for my D/S husband. His duty belt has taken its toll on his hips and back over the past 27 years and he had getting costly PT electric treatments that provide short term relief and had even been contemplating surgery. I told him to give this brace a shot and see if it helps. After shift, he was singing its praises! For the first time in a LONG time, he was not experiencing any back/hip pain and now swears by this brace! For the same price as one PT session! Well made and durable, it sits snugly out of sight under his duty belt. Don't wait until back problems become an issue..get one of these now!
A few years ago I had an on duty motorcycle wreck which jacked up my lower back. When an assignment was changed, I had to spend a lot of time in a marked unit and it really aggravated my back. My wonderful wife found your product and surprised me with it. The relief was felt immediately!
I have been asked by several of my coworkers and officers from other agencies about my belt and have sung your praises! I cannot say enough about how strongly I feel about this essential piece of my duty belt!
I have been wearing the Back Up Brace for about 3 weeks now. Out of the box I was impressed with the build quality. I Have worked several football games and other events wear I've had to stand for 8 plus hours at a time. My duty belt rides much better on my frame and I don't feel the weight as much on my hips. Love it so far. Only down side I've found so far is just putting the belt keepers on in the back and threading thru the holes to grab my inner belt. It is getting easier so practice makes perfect. Would and should have bought sooner. Thanks, Police Officer H Lane Knoxville TN
This belt allows more support and seems to reduce the weight of everything that has to be carried on my husband's belt. He told me this stuff. Also he and his partner who also has one, said that it is a "God Send".
