BackUp Nylon 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.

Helping the loaded back

I bought the brace several weeks back and waited to give it a review. Well, I know it works because I bought a nylon one, which is the belt I use the most. However, over the past few weeks, I have been wearing my leather (which does not have a brace). My back has been aching. I went back to wearing my nylon and it got much better. So in my non-scientific test, it works for me.

The only cons I have is that I have to put the brace on my inner belt with my trousers off. I would like to see it for around $40, but hey it works and worth the cost.

David, thank you for publishing the results of your excellent scientific research :) We are very glad the brace continues to offer you great support!
Pain nearly gone

I was skeptical of the reviews honestly and was hesistant to spend 70 dollars. Best money ever spent. My back pain is nearly 100% gone. Noticed an improvement on the third day wearing it. Literally can’t believe it helped my back this much. Only complaints is the keepers are a pain to put on and take off if you use the bathroom. Been wearing it three weeks now and my back feels 95% better. Thank you, you saved my career.

Wow, Brenton that's really great to hear. We're always happy when a customer is happy, but when we can make such an impact on a member of law enforcement - that's something special. Thank you for both your message, and for your sacrifice!
Gave it a try and it works!

Been on the job for 26 years. Tried suspenders and weight bearing vests and both did not work for me. Saw this product and decided to give it a try. I've been wearing it for several weeks now and I've found that the weight around my belt seems to be evenly distributed. I carry all my equipment in the front and sides and I could really feel the weight in those areas. Now the weight seems to be spread evenly around the belt. Minor back pain that I have experienced in the past has diminished since I starting wearing the Back Up Brace. Based on my experience I recommend that you at least give it a try. It may not work for everyone, bit it's worked for me!

Michael, we are very glad that this product finally helped your back pain where suspenders and weight bearing vests could not. Thanks for sharing!
Great Belt!

I bought this for my boyfriend & he said it has done his back wonders! He suffered from sciatic pain & he no longer has the pain after using the brace. He highly recommends this belt!

Brittany, we hope your boyfriend know how lucky he is to have you! Thanks for submitting the review, and the great shot of the BackUpBrace in action. It's always good to hear that it resolves issues that severely affect the quality of life for our LEOs such as sciatica.
Literally a back saver

I bought this as a Christmass gift for my self. In my seven years as an Officer I found my back starting to ache from the weight. I put this brace on my duty belt and in less than a week my back felt better.

I definitely recommend this the sooner the better before it's too late for your back!

Matt, this was a great Christmas Gift idea! From you, to you .... because you deserve it :) thank you for sharing.
