Cheap is NOT less expensive: in lost lives and futures!

3/18/18: Yes I have expressed these issues with higher ups ever since I was a private in the Army. Nothing has changed and I’ve found myself having to pay out of pocket for upgraded pads just to feel comfort while wearing my ACH. It seems as though the Army just wants the cheapest product so they can mass distribute, which makes sense to save money; however, the compromise of safety should be a higher concern. Thank you for the changes you are trying to make and I will keep trying to encourage my troops to do the same. LT, USArmy
