Kits: 4. Hometown: Phoenix, AZ. Heard about us: Battle Buddy. Duties: Maintenance. Current pads: 3M CERADYNE 52969, 7 green/ 1 black M/L. Comments: For the ECH helmet I have realized have two trapezoid pads in the rear of the helmet causes a lot of pressure on the forehead. It feels like there is to many pads in the helmet or the pad design was poorly placed/ planned. Sgt, US Army

Kits: 10. Hometown: Owensboro, Kentucky. Heard about us: Veteran friend. Duties: SECFOR/Advisor. Current pads: Army Issued pads/ Blue-gray. Comments: I think companies like yours are incredible. We are constantly in and out of kit and constantly going on convoys and missions outside the wire and every single time we return, all of my soldiers complain about headaches or neck pain due to improper placement. Thank you for your support and everything you guys do, we cant explain how grateful we are for companies like yours. SPC, US Army

Kits: 28. Hometown: New Jersey. Heard about us: Google. Duties: Infantry. Current pads: Standard army issued green/blue. Comments: Our missions have us outside the wire for several hours at a time, unable to remove our ACH. After some time, usually only around an hour it becomes very uncomfortable and painful to wear, even to the point where it is causing headaches. My guys have tried stuffing soft items into their helmets to alleviate this issue along with removing some of the provided pads issued by the army but none of these options have worked which is why I turned to google to see what other alternatives there were.
