Just thought id show my LWH, just wondering if these Gentex LWH's are still in use or have they been totally replaced by the pad system instead of the headband?

thanks

I'm pretty sure they started issuing pads more than 10 years ago so there has been some time for all the previous suspension to be replaced. Also, the USMC has started issuing troops the new ECH and replacing the LWH, lowering the likelihood of the old liner system being used even more. However, helmets move around a lot in the military and there is always a chance that there's some random guy who's using a LWH with an old liner.

Almost certainly someone is still using one, but not many people. PASGTS were still being used in 2008! The most common one these days is the Pads with the coyote brown retention system.
