Why we invented it:
If you've ever worn a full combat load for a patrol, on post, or during a field exercise you'll understand how sore the muscles in your neck and shoulders get as well as the back pains your gear causes. Do it for long enough and you'll have the same back problems most of us have. We invented the LBB to protect your back and spine from injury and to counter the fatigue in your neck and shoulders that degrades alertness and combat effectiveness.
Problems it was designed to solve:
Back pain is the #1 complaint "in garrison" by military personnel according to a medical study done by John Hopkins and Walter Reed (Nov 2011). This is due to a combination of factors: the weight of our combat loads/packs and the shock our spines take during field exercises and combat operations. Of course, as veterans, we didn't need a study to tell us that.
The LBB transfers the weight of your combat load onto your hips and legs, protecting your back and spine.
*If you already suffer from back pain or injuries due to your gear see our injury rehabilitation forum to understand the injury and rehabilitation tips from our expert.
The weight of our combat load starts to tire out the muscles in our neck, shoulders, and back. This fatigue becomes a distraction that hinders alertness and degrades combat effectiveness while on post or patrol.
Because our legs are anatomically designed by nature to take more weight and shock, the LBB shifts the weight to your legs, through your hips. This is similar to how a waist strap on a hiking pack transfers the weight to a hiker's legs, allowing them to carry a heavier load and not fatigue as quickly.
We don't want you to move your gear (mag pouches, grenade pouches, first aid kit, etc.) because it affects combat efficiency.
The LBB is modular and can be moved around existing equipment. We have also added PALS (aka MOLLE) attachment points so that it can go under your existing gear.
We want it to be usable regardless of what kind of issued body armor you get.
The LBB is designed to work with body armor that have PALS attachment points. So whether you have a MTV, Plate Carrier, IOTV, etc. the LBB will work with it.
The weight of our combat load is on our chest, not our back.
The LBB comes with four brackets, two up front and two in the back. This evenly distributes the weight.
Our gear is heavy enough...
