Kits: 40. Hometown: Hamilton, Ohio. Heard about us: Have purchased your helmet pads previously to use in Iraq & Afghanistan. Duties: INFANTRY, SSP, CONVOY OPERATIONS. Current Pads: Oregon Aero MICH/ACH Helmet Padding. Comments: For over a decade through 3 combat deployments, I have used your helmet pads in replace to the low quality issued items we receive. The Oregon Aero pads have been put to the test through multiple IED’s/Blasts and have performed beyond expectations. I only wish they issued these in the Marines, I believe it would help with the brain injuries and concussions. The ones that are issued today are the lowest of quality and do not protect how he Oregon Aero Padding does. They are cheap and after one day of hard sweating alone, become the equivalent of “rocks” on your skull and are extremely painful to wear. GYSGT, USMC

Kits: 2. Hometown: Swansea, Sc. Heard about us: My Ssgt. Duties: infantry. Current Pads: Advanced combat pads. Gray colored. Comments: These pads causes discomfort and headaches for me. It gets to the point of when I’m on patrol I have to take a security hold and remove my helmet to relieve the pressure on my head. When I got them issued to me they told me ” they will be hard and discomfortable at first, but they will loose up after awhile”. I’ve had these same pads for about a year and they still haven’t loosed up for me. Cpl, USMC

Kits: 2. Hometown: Franklin, MA. Heard about us: other website. Duties: Explosive Ordnance Response and Advise and Assist to Iraqi Army EOD techs. Current Pads: IIF issued from USMC velcro green pads. Comments: The pads we’re issued are rock hard and to big and bulky. It causes me to have to wear a helmet at least one size bigger which defeats the coverage of a proper fitted helmet and it causes massive headaches because they sit more on top then fitting around my head.

Kits: 1. Hometown: Houston, TX. Heard about us: Google. Duties: Personnel Security. Current Pads: Glued; plain issues. Comments: That you. SSG, US Army
