Kits: 1. Hometown: Los Ángeles CA. Heard about us: Other website. Duties: Convoy. Current pads: The standard issue pads. Comments: They are stiff and get stiffer over time that’s sometimes causes headaches . The kind of pads make a difference when doing missions. SPC, US Army

Kits: 130. Hometown: Eleanor, WV. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Convoys, maintenance, maintenance teams. Current pads: Mix of everything that’s ever been issued for the ACH. Comments: We are a maintenance company that is tasked with providing maintenance support and convoy support to units in several different countries. Most of our Soldiers have a mix of the light green pads, black pads, and dark green pads. They are worn out, or hard as a rock. Its difficult to properly fit a helmet to a troop’s head, and when we get it right, it almost always creates headaches. Our supply chain does not seem to be either able or willing to order replacements here, and at home, as a NG unit, we never have enough funding to cover hardly anything. Almost all of us will be spending quite some time in our ACHs. I am asking for 130 sets, but anything that you could provide will go a long way towards making sure our troops keep their buckets on. Thank you for what you do. SFC, US Army

OpHelmet response: I’ll get 50 ordered from the factory. Sorry we don’t have the funds to outfit all hands. We buy them from Oregon Aero at a 50% discount.
