the current pads do not provide enough cushioning or comfort for prolonged wear

Kits: 10. Hometown: Colorado Springs. Heard about us: Fellow Solider. Duties: Guard, maintenance. Current Pads: green, velcro attached, CIF issued. Comments: This request is for enough kits to equip my section. We have seen these kits from other Soldiers in the unit and would like to have them as well, as the current pads do not provide enough cushioning or comfort for prolonged wear. Thank you for your help, and I will be sure to provide feedback. SFC, US Army

Kits: 1. Hometown: Grandview, WA. Heard about us: Google. Duties: Infantry, heavy weapons company (IE big machine guns, TOW Missile system). Current Pads: Green issue pads, NSN 8470-01-546-8407. Comments: Current pads cause the migraine like headaches I saw on some of the comments on the main page of this site. Part of the problem is I can’t wear extra large because it sits on my head like a basket. These pads seem to compress my skull just enough so that over time I feel like hot coals are being pressed into my brain. It doesn’t help that I have a more oblate shaped head than most, so I have to choose between the helmet being too big on the sides or my forehead being crunched.. SPC, US Army
