The Back Defender

The Back Defender is the only concealed duty belt suspension system available on the market. The Back Defender functions like a pair of suspenders. The difference between The Back Defender and regular duty suspenders is simple: The Back Defender is designed to be worn under your shirt.

This effective internal suspender system does not require clothing modification. Police Officers who have used The Back Defender have reported an 82-100% decrease in pain from symptoms caused by their current duty belts. Symptoms caused by duty belts such as: low back pain, knee pain, foot pain, kidney pressure, headaches, sleep loss, fatigue, hip bruising, and leg numbness/tingling. The Back Defender complies with all uniform codes - no one will even know you are wearing one.

The Back Defender takes two weeks to get used to (the learning curve).  The Back Defender also requires officers to loosen their duty belt at least one and a half inches,  and officers MUST have duty pants with at least one and a half inches of extra room in the waist line.  Do not buy the Back Defender if you are impatient, do not have the extra room in your duty pants or your duty belt.

The Back Defender has been proven to:

-Remove the weight of the Duty Belt off the hips and lower back.
-Allow officers the ability to perform at maximum performance standards.
-Help keep the shirts tucked in during physical activity.
-Prevent the need to adjust the duty belt when exiting the patrol vehicle.
-Allow officers to engage in foot pursuits without the need to hold onto the duty belt.
-Enhance weapon retention.
-Enable the officer to stand pain free for longer periods of time without fatigue.

The Back Defender has been approved and is currently being used by Law Enforcement Officers in all 50  States, and 7 countries.


"The Back Defender" does not prevent or protect the user from injury.
