The gear is OK, it’s just the soldiers that are uncomfortable…NOT.

9 JUne 2016: I am a platoon leader for a forward deployed cavalry troop. My soldiers have one of the last missions in Afghanistan that involves dismounting “outside the wire.” Despite our rigorous training, our effectiveness is impacted by the extreme heat and how uncomfortable our equipment can be. Reading your mission and the testimonials of soldiers you have supported, I know that our platoon would greatly benefit from the more advanced pads. I look forward to hearing from you and promise to update you on the impact these pads have on our morale and our mission.. 1Lt, US Army
