bulkiness and stiffness causes extreme discomfort

Kits: 12. Hometown: San Jose, CA. Heard about us: Oregon Aero customer service. Duties: Explosive Ordnance Disposal / Counter-IED. Current Pads: Issued, Gray, MSA and Team Wendy pads.. Comments: The currently issued helmet pads are large and not flexible. Their bulkiness and stiffness causes extreme discomfort after little time of wear. The Marine is constantly having to loosen his helmet straps or completely remove his helmet in order to ease the headache and regain focus on the mission. During counter-IED missions, this causes unacceptable risks. The Marine already has many variables to contend with, and the headache caused by these helmet pads only worsens the situation. Sgt, USMC
