Default Kidney Belt

Does anyone here use a kidney belt when riding? I have a issue with my lower back, nothing major, but riding doesn't really help it. Does the kidney belt work more like a back brace, or is it more just padding in case you crash. Just want some opinions before spending money on something that might not work for me.

Thanks.

Definitely helps me. I don't ride my dirt bike without it. Buy a good one. Mine are not really padded but they have support top to bottom to help keep you straight. They work much better than those drug store back support belts, or even the lifting belts sold at home centers. Mine were $20-$30. Go somewhere to try them out and wear the type of clothing that you will wear it with.

Here is a good place to shop they normally have a large in store selection, much more than is on their web site

Just picked up the FOx racing kidney belt, guess we'll see how it works this weekend at the dunes.

I use a mid-grade Thor belt. The difference is quite noticeable for me. I would definitely recommend one
