Helmet wear creates a lot of pressure ... on the forehead

Kits: 30. Hometown: Clare, MI. Heard about us: Google. Duties: Combat Engineer. Current Pads: Unit pad. Comments: We have been to NTC twice this year and have an upcoming deployment and extended wear of the helmet creates a lot of pressure, especially on the forehead. I would like for the soldiers in my platoon to be comfortable while wearing their helmets. SSG, US Army

Kits: 4. Hometown: Gilbert. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Infantry Mortars. Current Pads: Gray standard issued pads. Comments: Almost immediately putting my kevlar on I get headaches can’t concentrate effectively. I would like to get a kit and 3 more for the guys under me complaining about the same issues.

Kits: 1. Hometown: West Plains, MO. Heard about us: Website. Duties: battlefield circulation. Current Pads: gray ones. Comments: Wearing the improved ACH with it being lighter weight would seem not to give you a headache. I remember in 05 we all had the pads that are green on one side and black on the other, which were a lot better than the ones they issue now, which are the gray pads that seem like concrete.
