Our Story

DFND (pronounced “de-fend”) was started in 2009 when founders Jeff Herdman and Steve Burnett were inspired by the world’s most elite athletes; our military and first responders. They set out to design and manufacture products to specifically help them train longer, feel better, recover faster, prevent injuries, and help in their overall health. Taking all of their industry knowledge, and through years of innovation and intense testing, they created the world’s best performance and recovery compression products, leading many of our leading military and first responder units to adopt DFND as their official uniforms. However, the mission didn’t stop there. DFND is now proud to offer all of our benefits to you, as we believe everyone deserves a product that enhances performance, increases recovery, and enhances your overall health. So, go ahead. Train. Recover. Repeat.
