Kits: 30. Hometown: West Chester PA. Heard about us: Marines I’ve served with. Duties: Infantry training. Current pads: Blue issued pads. Comments: As Combat Instructors we wear our kevlars for 12+ hours a day. Our blue issued pads hurt and give us headaches when we wear them for so long. New pads will help ease pain of wearing kevlars for long periods of time. Sgt, US Marines

Kits: 50. Hometown: Clayton, NC. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Infantry, Convoy and Dismount Ops, TCP, OP, and Recon. Current pads: Standard issue, grey Velcro. Comments: The current Pads do not hold up well in extreme conditions or operations. The pads make it difficult to wear NODs as the helmet moves around to much. After even just a few operations or even training events the standard pads start to feel like bricks with little to no cushion. The personnel deciding on the gear we use actually need to use the gear, and not all MOS can use the same gear. Gear should be made for the job we are doing. SSG, US Army

Kits: 12. Hometown: Lumberton, NC. Heard about us: Good friend. Duties: Infantry. Convoy. Security. Done a few raids.. Current pads: Issue pads.. Comments: The new IHPS is great but oh god…the issue pads still?? They make it wear horrible and uncomfortable. Also we’re constantly out, I mean 2 week plus at a time on missions, so we’re living under this helmets practically. CPT, US Army
