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.

Backupbrace works

Great, it a lot of pressure my lower back and spread the weight around.

Thanks for the review and the photos Larry!
Awesome back saver

Between the duty and belt and the vest, my back is overworked. Bought this brace in hopes that it would help and it absolutely has. Takes a couple weeks to be set on your duty belt, but the support was there immediately. Def recommend this for any LE personnel that needs the extra support, especially for long shifts. You just need to re-adjust your gear to weave the back brace in.

Thanks E. T. for the review, and great photo!
Awesome product

I was experiencing lower back pain due to wearing the Sam Brown belt with all that gear. I bought the back up brace about a month ago. I have experienced a total change in the amount of pressure placed on my back and the pain has been less and less every day. Now I'm enjoying work days without any back pain. This product actually does what it says it does. Thank you.

Thanks for your kind comment. It pretty much says it all! We're proud of the fact that our product does what is says it can do. Now that's not always the case because every one is different, but that's why we offer the 90 day money back guarantee. We're very glad it worked perfectly for you, and thank you for sharing the photos!
BackUp Smooth Leather Back Support with Belt Keepers

I purchased this back brace for my son who is in law enforcement, it was suggested by his FTO. He is exceptionally pleased with this brace and the positive difference it is making by supporting his back!

Thanks Lacey - you're a good mom! This does indeed make a great gift for a LEO, and we're super happy to hear it was FTO recommended. Thanks for the comment!
What a difference it makes!!

As soon as I put on my Backupbrace, I noticed a difference right away! My duty belt felt much lighter and more comfortable.

The first day I wore it I was doing a foot patrol assignment where I was walking around for almost 8 hours straight. At the end of my shift that day my back had no back pain like it normally does.

On an everyday use the Backupbrace does the trick. It's comfortable sitting in the scout car for extended periods and I no longer am begging to take off my belt a few hours into my shift.

I was so happy with my belt I raved about it to my partner at work and he ended up getting one as well! He seems to be even happier than me with his. He has a slightly larger waste and taller frame and the bigger belt seems to work even better for him.

I would highly recommend this product for any law enforcement officers who wear a duty belt.

Excellent product!

Jer, thanks for the awesome review, and the cool pick of the BackUpBrace in action. We're glad you both love it - thanks for sharing!
