Nous Defions and SOTech Announce Collaboration 

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

Nous Defions was founded by a Special Forces NCO whose passion led him to the intersection of the sporting and tactical worlds. The Nous Defions Jiu Jitsu product line is centered around the Jiu Jitsu Clubs that have grown in the SOF community. The competitive drive of the SOF operator draws many to hone their close combatives skills in the Jiu Jitsu dojo. Holding true to the standards of SOF Warriors, he decided that Nous Defions products would be of the highest quality and 100% American made. Having just completed his first run of American made Jiu Jitsu gis, Nous Defions embarked on a competitors pack. Nous Defions decided to contract S.O.Tech /Special Operations Technologies Inc for production because of their 20 years of fabricating custom designed nylon tactical gear for SOF units.

True to SOF innovativeness, the bag is designed to convert with an expandable compartment from a backpack into a shoulder duffel bag. The bag is made of military grade nylon and the interior is blaze orange for identification of contents and Velcro lined for affixing accessory pouches. Whether running to the dojo for a workout or going TDY for a match with a couple days of supplies, this bag is well thought out.

Nous Defions also sponsors a number of veteran based charitable foundations including the We Defy Foundation, Warrior Heart, Elder Heart and Mission22.

LASD Purchases SOTech Patrol First Aid Kits

Monday, January 18th, 2016


SOTech proudly announces that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has ordered close to 1000 SOTech Patrol First Aid Kits. 100 of those kits are modified for issue to LASD’s elite Special Enforcement Bureau (SWAT). Of special note, the LASD Patrol set includes a tourniquet belt pouch which will be added to the officer’s gun belt. This pouch slides over SOTech’s belt hanger adapter which LASD already issues to attach their Taser holster, and now their IFAK. In 2015 LAPD bought 2700 of SOTech’s Basic IFAK which is nearly identical to the LASD version, but LAPD has not opted to include a tourniquet belt pouch yet. Both the LASD and LAPD IFAKs mount using SOTech’s patented Speed Clip system which can attach to a belt, MOLLE vest or clip on as a thigh rig. SOTech sells numerous versions of the Speed Clip Rig including the IFAK, Taser and M4 magazine rigs.

The history behind this design and LASD and LAPD’s involvement dates back to 1999 when we developed our Patrolman’s Medical Thigh Rig with officers and deputies from both departments. Ironically we found two officers still using these original rigs over 15 years later. The PMTR was a basis of design for the 30,000 SOF IFAKs that SOTech produced for USASOC and SOCOM throughout the GWOT. So it was fitting that LAPD and LASD approached SOTech in 2012 to develop what was then either a vehicle or an individual mount. SOTech also supplied 5000 slightly modified versions of this design to a federal law enforcement agency.

These kits are offered filled or as the pouch alone. Check them out at SHOT in the SOTech Booth 20113.
