BackUp Patent 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.

Happy customer

After driving a semi for years then becoming an LEO, my back has taken on some issues. With this back brace it has given me some relief on the tightness in my lower bac. THANKS!!

A Trooper’s relief!

I purchased a back up brace because the weight of the duty belt itself is a lot let alone the strain on my lower back. With this back up brace, the weight is evenly proportioned and that strain has dramatically subsided!!! I highly recommend the back up brace! Thank you!!!

Glad you love it John! Thanks for the review.
Works for me....Removes that pinch in your back

Nothing more important than your health. Duty belts are horrible for your body. This brace distributes the weight differently mitigating the pinch on your spine. It's a game changer. I'll probably buy another one for a spare. I spent a lot of money on other solutions. This is the only one I would recommend.

Great Product with Great Relief

I have been a motor officer for about 20 years and have experienced back pain from riding all day. This brace blends in well with my duty belt and offers exceptional comfort! I have had a few other deputies ask about the product and I promptly referred them to this site! Give this brace a try!

Excellent Relief and Support!

I have been a state trooper for roughly three years and started getting back pain soon after the academy. The Backup Brace has significantly reduced my pain during my shifts as well as when I am done working. I am routinely asked what "that thing" on my back is and if it helps. It does! I recommend it to my friends so I have no problem recommending it to anyone out there reading this! For only $70 try it out. Last thing, I come from a department which is big on uniformity, the patent leather blended in well with the rest of my belt. Thanks and hope this helps others looking!
