1/13/187: The current cif issued pads are terrible. They are way too thick and not soft. It would be great to get me and my platoon some more pads that work better. Helmets can be an issue in the field. They constantly are uncomfortable. We need something better. It would improve our proficiency and overall well being. My platoon and I would greatly appreciate it if we could get some helmet pads. Sgt, US Army.
