the issued pads cause headaches, sores, and they just flat out hurt

Kits: 84. Hometown: Olympia WA. Heard about us: Another Doc I worked with downrange. Duties: HUMINT for SOF units in multiple countries. Current pads: the hard foliage green ones. Comments: 84 members of my company are the ones that DO NOT have good pads. Myself and many others already have your pads or similar so I did not count us in the request. And ALL of us work outside the wire on deployment. If 84 is too much, we would gladly take what you are able to provide. SGT, US Army

Kits: 28. Hometown: Iuka, MS. Heard about us: Battle Buddy. Duties: Convoy Security and Reconnaissance. Current pads: Green with glued seams. Comments: Thank you so much for what you do. Organizations like this make it worth it to be out here. SSG, US Army

Kits: 7. Hometown: Hemet, ca. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Will be deploying on the [opsec] meu. Current pads: Standard grey hard pass that come in an ACH. Comments: Requsting 7 kits for my whole team. The current pads make it difficult to wear our liberators with our ACH.. Staff sergeant, US Marines

Kits: 26. Hometown: Mashpee, MA. Heard about us: Prior unit wore these pads. Duties: Infantry. Current pads: The issued ones. Comments: We patrol ALOT.. the pads we have issued to us cause headaches, sores, and they just flat out hurt after extended periods of time. I used these pads back in 2015 and I absolutely loved them, I could wear them and forget my Kevlar was there at all..however my old 1stSgt wouldn’t let us deploy with non- cif issued gear. Cleared it thru my chain of command now we are just praying to get some!!. Sgt, US Marines
