Standard issue pads are garbage

Standard issue pads are garbage - uncomfortable

Kits: 40. Hometown: Quincy, MA. Heard about us: A friend that was in my last unit that got us the helmet pads. Duties: Light infantry. Current pads: Standard GI issued. Worn out, ripped, uncomfortable. Comments: Tons of our soldiers in my platoon have the standard issue helmet pads CIF issues. They’re garbage and our soldiers get uncomfortable wearing them to where they always want to take them off whenever we’re out doing missions. They don’t sit well in the helmet. They barely stick onto the velcro. We’re about to go overseas and I would want my soldiers and other soldiers within the platoon to have comfortable pads while down range. Thank you!. SGT, US Army
