current pads are old and worn out

Current pads we use are so old and worn out my soldiers were taking them out of there helmets

Kits: 7. Hometown: Boise, ID. Heard about us: Friend from work. Duties: Infantry. Current pads: Gray ach pads from cif/rfi. Comments: The current pads we use are so old and worn out my soldiers were taking them out of there helmets. They are stiff and hard, losing any potential of helping with injuries sustained to the head. SSG, US Army

Kits: 5. Hometown: Fort Collins, CO. Heard about us: Google. Duties: HQ Element for an infantry battalion: QRF, security, presence patrols, tactical convoys. Current pads: Issued gray 3/4″ Ceradyne pads. Comments: My battalion is leaving for Afghanistan next month. Personally, I have never been able to get my ACH to fit well with the issue pads, and I have suffered recurring headaches, hotspots, and discomfort after wearing it for extended periods. Because of this I have a bad unconscious habit of unbuckling or removing my helmet at every opportunity. This is not a problem stateside, but definitely is while in theater. I know many of my peers have similar complaints. I found your service through a google search while looking for better pads, and I am ordering for my HQ section (just those who potentially do more than sit behind a desk). I will be sure to pass on your info to the rest of the unit. Thank you so much for everything you do, this is literally a life-saver. SGT, US Army
