We have the worst Kevlar pads ... super uncomfortable

Kits: 46. Hometown: Asheville North Carolina. Heard about us: Heard of you guys from a fellow Marine who has the pads in his Kevlar. Duties: Counter mobility, mobility, and survivability. Current pads: Grey pads that were issued. Comments: The current pads are giving us headaches and do not do much when worn. Always sliding around on our heads. And putting a lot of pressure on certain areas of our heads. SSgt, US Marines

Comments: My unit is deploying in just a few months for the Middle East as part of the special purpose MAGTF. We have the worst Kevlar pads that fit super uncomfortable with the new ECH helmets.
