BackUp Smooth Leather 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.

Fantastic Product

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.

Desiree, thank you for sharing your experience - it really made our day!
Works well

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.

Thanks for the awesome photo Robert! Glad you are loving the BackUpBrace. Stay safe out there!
Took a week but well worth it.

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.

Ryan, we've had many clients say that it takes a week or two to get the full benefit of the product. We're glad you love it! Thanks for the photo too.
Great Purchase

As I have gone through my career 19 years now, my back and gotten increasingly worse. Then I bent over and threw out my back. This is when I said enough is enough. I went to the internet and looked for something to help. This is when I stumbled upon the company BackUp. I looked at the brace and thought it can't hurt and if it does I'll send it back. This was the best purchase I have made as a law enforcement officer. The support takes the weight off the hips and gives a thicker area for the back to rest on. GREAT PURCHASE...don't hesitate to buy.

Thanks for the great review Cory, we're so glad we could help!
