  • The Back Defender

    Has anyone used this product or familiar with it. I have done a little research on the product. I am on the uniform and equipment commitee on my Dept and have presented the product to the command staff. Just wondering if anyone out there has any input.

    Yes it is, its a harness you wear that holds your belt in place and keeps it from moving around. Apparently you also do not have to wear it so tight. It requires no modification to your duty uniform and cannot be seen. There is a website that has pictures,testimonials ect.. WWW.backdefender.com. I am hoping to get it placed on my Depts uniform clothing allowance

          So, couldn't anyone wear this and be fine, since no one can see it?

            That's awesome. Suspenders you can wear under your clothes.

              I imagine yes anyone could wear it. But we get a grand a year for uniform and equipment allowance. We can only buy things on an approved list. I am just trying to get this added so the Dept pays for it instead of the induvidual is all

                  What if you're about to have diarrhea? Can you detach it quick enough to keep from ruining your pants?

                    looks like it would prevent u from wearing shirt stays as well and the hidden tailor belts.

                      There's an accessory available for that problem.

                        My experience with the back defender...

                        I have been wearing the back defender for a few weeks now. It took a little getting used to. I can no longer wear shirt stays, but the back defender keeps my shirt down pretty well.

                        I first tried the back defender becuase I was having significant lower back pain becuase of the belt. I have noticed a 100% decrease in my back pain. Do you know that feeling of relief you feel after taking the belt off at the end of shift, it feels like unloading some weight. With the back defender the weight is distributed evenly across my upper back, chest, and shoulders. I barely feel the belt at all during work. I would suggest this product for anyone having back pain from a duty belt.

                        And from my point of view, well worth the $200.

                          I've got back problems and at one point, I was out of work for about three weeks because of it. This sounds very interesting to me. I would like to try it out but I'm wondering if they will take it back if it doesn't work out? I would hate to spend the 200 bucks, then not ever use the thing. I'm also curious about how well it keeps the shirt down. I'm very used to me shirt stays and I don't like a loose fitting uniform shirt.

                            I have found as an old man that the best "back defender" I have used my whole career, and it hasn't costed me a dime is SIT-UPS.....

                            That's right, working out... Keeps those back muscles strong, no back pain from 20 pounds worth of gear and it also has the added benefit of allowing you to keep in the fight....

                            Core strength, the best "back and the rest of your body defender" on the planet.

                              Wow....been looking for something like this for over a year and by goodness someone finally made one. Since my department refuses to let patrol buy nylon gear or any other gear that might help alleviate the pain of wearing a heavy leather duty belt laden with all of the goodies. I'm going to buy one........like right now.

                              I've been on the street for almost 3years now and my back is killing me. About 50% of our vets (5 years+) have back problems. Some of the more serious are the disk problems and such. If this can help in anyway I'm for it.....my back health is well worth 200 bucks.

                              I'll post a review in a few weeks after it comes in let you guys know if it works or not.
