Please assist, I will solicit/advertise or review whatever you will send, thanks. Sgt, US Marines

Kits: 20. Hometown: Jacksonville. Heard about us: Marine Corp. Duties: Gods work/ giving steel rain to our enemies (shake and bake our enemies souls). Current pads: Grey, Glued, fuzzy, nothing written. Comments: These pads we currently have are stiff and coarse, they are extremely uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. Cause headaches and migranes to marines everywhere. Sergeant, US Marines

Kits: 37. Hometown: Pottsboro, Texas. Heard about us: User testimonials via Oregon Aero. Duties: Advising. Current pads: NSN: 8470-01-546-9356; the generic grey ones with glued seams. Comments: Our team will be operating in close proximity to our ANA counterparts and local nationals conducting TFSW’s Train, Advise, Assist mission as part of NATO’s Resolute Support Mission Afghanistan. Due to our exposure outside the wire nearly every day our biggest threats are VBIEDs and IDF, which makes our PPE critical. I’ve read the testimonials and felt the comfort of these pads in my old helmet (we’ve since upgraded to the ECH) and believe they’re amazing and would like the team to be outfitted with as many of these as possible. We just got on deck here and will be here until summer 2019. The old pads are so uncomfortable that one TTP that’s been adopted is that we cut a cross pattern into the pack of the pad to get it to conform to the head just a little bit better. Captain, US Marines

Kits: 2. Hometown: Statesville, NC. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Infantry operations. Current pads: Gray IIF issued pads. Comments: Please help! I train Marines daily on live fire ranges up to 12 hours per day on infantry tactics and operations. The gray issued pads are garbage for lack of better terms and make my pre existing migraines so much worse. I was directed to this website by a fellow Marine in hopes you could help me. Sgt, US Marines
