Issued pads suck

Kits: 6. Hometown: Hinesville, Ga. Heard about us: Cpl Michael [opsec]. Duties: Infantry. Current pads: Ceradyne Advanced Combat Pads. Comments: I am a Team Leader on an Advisor Team. We are tasked with going outside the wire to patrol the battle space. The six requested kits would outfit everyone in my truck. The current issued pads are just uncomfortable, they are very stiff and after about ten minutes of wear we start to get headaches. Staff Sergeant, US Marines

Kits: 15. Hometown: Texas. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: 0311 Infantry. Current pads: IIF issued the shitty ones. Comments: IIF issued pads suck and we would like to request good one for the deployment. Our heads ain’t fitting in there right. We want to try out your awesome pads we hear so much about.

Kits: 4. Hometown: Wolfe City. Heard about us: Marine. Duties: Patrolling, QRF missions. Current pads: Basic Light Helmet Velcro pads. Comments: With the current pads issue overtime they irritate your head and feel like your helmet is a brick. Cause uneasy pain and the comfort on them on a scale of 1-10- 10 being the best it’s a 2. A few of my marines have got the new pads and they are so much better and comfortable then the ones currently issued. Cpl, US Marines
