My pads give me headaches after a few hrs of operations

Kits: 1. Hometown: Granite city Illinois. Heard about us: A friend. Duties: Infantry. Current Pads: Pad, helmet advanced combat gray color. Comments: The current pads that are issued to us are very uncomfortable to wear for a length of time. I’ve gone out in the past and purchased my own personnel pads because of these pads issued are unbearable to wear. SSgt, USMC

Kits: 2. Hometown: Ravenna, TX. Heard about us: My SGT (section leader) informed me. Duties: Infantry. Current Pads: Gray, stiff. Give way and hold groove of skull after several days of ops. Comments: My pads give me headaches after a few hrs of operations, although I’m not sure that is uncommon. Maybe I’m just bitching too much. Ha. CPL, USMC

Kits: 2. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Infantry. Current Pads: Grey, sewn seam, standard issue. Comments: I am requesting 2, that way i can give a set to my assistant patrol leader. And spread the word to my marines If we like them. The current pads harden quickly and give marines headaches. They are too bulky and alot of the marines feel unsafe due to the fact that the kevlar sits to high on their head. SGT, USMC
