Hood Jens Impressive

Hi All.

I just thought i would share the news of a recent purchase.

I ordered the K7 Jeans from Hood and i am well impressed. They are so comfortable with and without the armour. you barely notice the hip pad's.

The Para-aramid (the stuff that stops your skin spreading down the road) is nice and thick and feels substantial. Giving me confidence in them.

I would recommend these to anyone. A British company making good quality kit!

I bought a pair of Hood armoured jeans

Still can't quite get into my head they are as good as leather

They are comfortable but depending where I'm going and on what still like leather.

Most

testing shows abrasion resistance of jeans to be as good as leather if not better for some brands as they've got a reputation to get rid of. They're certainly better than most textiles, except for the absolute top of the range ones with 1000+denier and ripstop, etc.

I've seen the road tests on these jeans and they are very good, it's just been indoctrinated into me that leather is better.

I love my Hood jeans.

More kevlar than any other makes I've looked at, yet comfortable enough to wear at work all day. My oldest pair are 6 years old and faded a little, but stitching still looks good and no fraying anywhere. I never buy any other make of kevlar jeans.

And I always buy British if possible, so I'm happy.
