Current standard issue pads always cause headaches

Kits: 30. Hometown: Fort Carson, CO. Heard about us: Google. Duties: Infantry. Current Pads: Standard Issue, OD Green, Velcro, Soft Foam. Comments: Current pads are rough and stiff and cause hair to rub out of Soldiers head causing temporary bald spots/thinning, pressure on the head causing the helmet to be a slight distraction and are overall uncomfortable.

Kits: 1. Hometown: Victoria, TX. Heard about us: online, researching more comfortable pad options for my ACH. Duties: Infantry Rifleman. Current Pads: Standard issue helmet pads, foliage green, glued seam, lettering/ numbers printed worn off. Comments: Current standard issue pads always cause headaches after an hour or so of wear; however any infantryman is often required to wear their ACH for several hours at a time, whole days. It is much easier to carry out my mission, whatever it may be at the time, if I am not constantly distracted by the discomfort of my helmet. SPC, US Army
