This is my second McDavid back support of this style. The first one was worn to shreds. I’ve had lumbar back surgery 2x in the past (lifetime of extreme sports and falling off of things taller than I am). This belt along with regular yoga ensures that I won’t have surgery a third time . I’ve had many back belts over the years with all sorts of stays, varying heights, etc. and this is the one that I always selected.
Back belts aren’t designed to be the sole source of support – you’ve got to have some muscle, too, or you can really damage spine. This back belt has 2 adjustments – the main Velcro tab and the two, outer Velcro side tabs. It’s the outer side tabs that really adjust the support and help to ‘suck it up’ during strenuous activities. The neoprene is great because it keeps my lower back muscles cozy and warm. The power mesh sides also allow the belt to breathe everywhere else. The neoprene can make it sweaty in my lower back (if you work out, you know about that puddle back there), but I don’t mind because the belt works as it should. There are less expensive back belts on the market and they might perform just as well as this one, but as far as I can tell the others lack neoprene, breathable mesh and two levels of adjustment.

McDavid is McGood,
This review is from: McDavid Back Support (Sports)
I am a senior golfer, and my back gives me fits every so often. This back support is extremely well made, solid, provides good support, and I can wear it under my clothing. Great product. I also have the Mueller back support, and it is just as good as this one. Enjoy.

A very good back support product,
This review is from:
I have bought three other back support braces for use at work and on my motorcycle. This is a really good light duty support brace. It has mesh in the sides which help to keep you cool. The velcro lasts a long time. The velcro on the staps do not overhang the edges and hook onto your clothing. This was a fatal flaw on a very popular name brand back support that saw the garbage can way before it wore out. The adjustment straps work easily and well for a wide range of fit options. You can make it snug or loose quickly.
It is thin, not bulky, and works well under my custom motorcycling pants. Again, being partly mesh is a big plus. It works great for keeping my back straight while riding. Less fatigue and reduced back strain.
Not the cheapest light duty support but worth the price.
