Constantly adjust the pads to reduce headaches

Kits: 3. Hometown: Kalamazoo, Michigan. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Combat Engineer; Demolitions, CIED. Current pads: PAD, HELMET, ADVANCED COMBAT SIZE. Gray, glued seam, felt texture. Comments: A guy in my platoon in 2011 had some pretty amazing kevlar pads that DID NOT give the wearer headaches, or the need to adjust the kevlar. Currently, wearers have to constantly adjust the pads to reduce headaches. Sgt, US Marines

Kits: 8. Hometown: Clatskanie, OR. Heard about us: Google. Duties: IED Sweeping, Airfield Damage Repair, Security, Patrols. Current pads: Standard issue, Team Wendy Pads. Comments: While training for the Special MAGTF my Marines often have pain from the standard issue pads after wearing there helmets for long amounts of time. When my Marines should be concentrating on detecting IEDs at the front of a patrol, it can be deadly if all they are thinking about is when they can take there helmet off. Sgt, US Marines

Kits: 40. Hometown: Green Bay, WI. Heard about us: Google. Duties: Train, advise, & assist. Current pads: Stock. Comments: The current pads are stiff and causing many members of my task force headaches shortly after donning the Kevlar. I need them all to be able to focus on threats and not constantly making adjustments taking their focus away. Captain, US Marines
