Kits: 5. Heard about us: Word of mouth. Duties: Convoy/Route clearance. Current pads: 3m. Comments: Myself, and my team have all been experiencing tension headaches from the new issued IHPS helmet. We all wear commo headsets underneath are helmet which plays a factor. But it’s the only way we can reliably hear our comms inside our vehicles.
