New Wonder-Helmet, crappy old helmet pads make it too uncomfortable to wear

June 21, 2016: Kits: 32. Hometown: ROCKWALL, TX. Heard about us: ONLINE. Duties: INFANTRY, PATROLS, CONVOY. Current Pads: NSN 8470-01-546-9407, CERADYNE 52969. Comments: The standard issue helmet pads they gave my platoon are hard as rocks. They’re cheap, uncomfortable, and hinder our mission set because I will have soldiers loosen their ECH. We have no means of buying aftermarket pads at our location. If you do decide we are fortunate enough to be recipients of your helmet pad my soldiers will greatly appreciate the gesture. Thank you in advance for helping us out!. 1LT, US Army
