the helmet pads which are issued just don't work

Kits: 20. Duties: Intelligence. Current Pads: advanced combat pad set, grey in color. Comments: the helmet pads which are issued just don’t work. They are extremely hard and inflict severe headaches. I luckily have never been involved in a blast, but I have some serious reservations about their protect level. My team is deploying next month to CentCom as a crisis response force and I want them to have the best and most comfortable gear available, unfortunately my unit will not purchase additional pad sets because they are already issued.
