I just bought the Skydex helmet pads in advance of my deployment in the next short while. Before I install them, I was wondering if anyone had any techincal data on the blast (not ballistic) protection provided by these pads versus the issued styrofoam/leather net. Specifically, I heard someone say that air does not channel blast energy, and thus the issued paracord suspension system is superior for blast protection. Is this in any way true?
