BackUp Basket Weave Back Support with Belt Keepers

  • $ 69.95

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.

Why didn't I get one of these sooner?

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

great back support

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".

Thanks for taking the time to write this review Angie - and thank you for your sacrifice and support. LEO families are what make it possible for LEOs to protect and serve, and we appreciate it very much!
Very Good

I wish I'd had this thing YEARS ago !!!!

Awesome product, felt immediate support!

Great product, shipped quick!

Reduced hot spots

I've been wearing the brace for about a month now. The brace is constructed well and feels very sturdy. I've definitely noticed a reduction in hot spots on my back and my hips. Putting the keepers on can be difficult. I've found that it's a little easier to put them on while sitting down.

One suggestion I would make for the product is adding a strip of velcro on the inside of the brace to attach to the under belt. This would probably eliminate the need to wear keepers.

But overall, it's a decent product. I just wish I had purchased the smaller one. I wear a buckleless duty belt and having the smaller brace would make it easier for me to slide my pouches around.

David, thanks for your review. Please feel free to get in touch if you wish to exchange your brace for a smaller one. We would be happy to assist!
