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!
