17 Apr 2015: Kits: 11. Hometown: vancouver, wa. Heard about us: friend. Duties: infantry. Current Pads: army issued pads, msa, gray. Comments: We do everything from mounted to dismounted operations. wearing the issued pads at night with your night device on has always be reason for a headache. Through the extreme heat to the random rain and so on the army issued pads has just been making alot of discomfort and problems for my guys. i think myself i have readjusted my helmets pads going on about a dozen times with still no change its the same thing with this issued stuff get beat up and just gets more and more uncomfortable.
