Kits: 12. Hometown: Warminster PA. Heard about us: Google. Duties: EOD, TRAP support, HMA, Ordnance exploitation.. Current pads: IIF issues Grey rocks.. Comments: The issued pads make the helmet ride high on your head. Within an hour of operations we are adjusting our straps or removing said helmet to make comfort adjustments which only last for so long before the next adjustment is needed. I tried my buddies helmet who owns a set of these pads and was amazed with the comfort they provide and the change in helmet fitment. Sgt, US Marines
