1/23/17: Bob,I have now had some time to test the pads you provided. They are far superior to the grey nuggets that we were issued. Even on a cold day, when donned without a warmup, the pads are on par with the issued stones. But then minutes later, as my head warms the foam, the helmet disappears from my head – it’s so comfortable I don’t even notice it’s there. Thank you again for this service you provide. I will certainly tell every soldier/sailor/airman who suffers with the inferior issued gear, all about your organization.
