Compression headaches

Kits: 10. Hometown: Redding California. Heard about us: Buddy. Duties: Infantry. Current pads: Standard issue. Comments: Many of my marines have complained to me about the issued pads and if I knew of any better ones. Until I used my buddies helmet I didn’t. Then he told me about this and I wanted to surprise my squad with some new ones before we leave for deployment. Sergeant, USMC

Kits: 140. Hometown: Albany, NY. Heard about us: friend. Duties: Infantry. Current pads: Issued Grey Pads, Model: SPM1C1-12-D-B014, NSN: 8470-01-546-9407. Comments: Our infantry company currently uses the issued pads on the ECH helmet. We have noticed that over long periods of time in vehicles or on aircraft, the helmets often result in compression headaches, especially if the Marines are wearing a headset or their Night Vision Goggles. Any help that you can provide to us would be greatly appreciated and would greatly enhance the health and capability of our force. Capt, US Marines
