The pads that we were issued are hard, uncomfortable and hot!
Kits: 8. Hometown: San Diego, CA. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: EOD. Current Pads: Team Wendy. Comments: I am requesting 8 kits so that I can outfit my entire 8 man EOD Platoon. As Navy EOD Technicians we wear our combat helmets whenever we are conducting EOD Operations. Sometimes this means that we have our helmets on for very long periods of time. The pads that we were issued are hard, uncomfortable and hot! Over time we develop headaches, sores, or in some cases bald spots. Additionally, the helmet becomes a distractor which during the performance of our duties can be dangerous. Chief (E7), USN
