the issued pads are not very comfortable

Kits: 30. Duties: BN S4. Current Pads: Issued grey pads. Comments: My Advise and Assist team is currently deployed in Iraq. We convoy out a couple times a week to visit our Iraqi Army counterparts. Most of us on the team are officers and we have to cover down on tasks that we traditionally wouldn’t conduct (gunner, driver, guardian angel, etc). As you have described on your website, the issued pads are not very comfortable. For me, they are so uncomfortable, I have a total of three pads in my helmet. Also, as my BN’s logistics manager, I am very interested in procuring the very best equipment for my Battalion. Anything you could support with would be tremendously appreciated. Thank you. CPT, US Army
