The issue pads are too thick and don’t compress well

Kits: 4. Duties: Armored Vehicle Crewman. Current Pads: Issued foliage. 1 Med ACH and 3 Large.. Comments: The issue pads retain heat and sweat to the point of being deformed. They also wear out much quicker than they can be replaced. We have issues with the pads Velcro backing coming off after taking them out for cleaning a few times. The issue pads are also too thick and don’t compress well to be more comfortable. CPT, US Army
