Helmets protect; but NOT IF UNWORN

10/14/17:Kits: 70.. Heard about us: A friend on base showed me your pads.. Duties: Daily route clearance patrols detecting explosive hazards on roads.. Current Pads: Standard ACH/ECH Govt issue light green. Comments: Current Govt issue pads cause too much pressure when worn for 6-8 hours at a time on patrol. Makes Soldiers want to take off their protective helmets outside of the wire which is a big no no. But of you don’t make an adjustment you’ll have a raging headache after mission. Getting as many kits as allowed would be great for my Soldiers, a small reward for the risks that I ask them to take every day.. CPT, US Army
