I just wanted to update my product review
on Hood Jeans. I recently purchased a new pair of K7 jeans and a new set
of knee armor. The new jeans were just as great as my first pair, but
the armor has GREATLY improved. The first set of armor that I had would
feel fine to begin with, but after a couple of days of straight riding,
my knees would start to get sore. I just returned from two weeks in
Sturgis, SD and I wore a pair of my jeans and the new armor everyday,
all day. My knees never got sore and in fact I would forget that I even
had the armor on. I got several compliments on how good they looked. If
you are considering a pair of motorcycle jeans, check out a pair of Hood
I got my new Hood K7 jeans from Hood and thought I would report to the
rest of you my opinion of them. The quality of the denim is very good
and I also like the way they look. I was told by Hood that they run big.
I don't think they do. I wear a size 6 about 60% of the time and a size
8 about 40% of the time. I was a little worried about that because a
size 8 is the smallest size they make for women.
Well, maybe Australian sizes are different from USA sizes, but they do
not run big. They fit perfect . . . but without the armor. I put the
armor in and the pants were too tight. Other than that they are nice.
They don't appear bulky and you would never know that they weren't
regular jeans if you didn't know better.
I wore them riding this weekend and they felt good. The day was hot and
humid, but I really never got too hot. The Kevlar goes down to your
shins instead of just patches on the seat and knees like Draggn' Jeans.
Overall, I really like the jeans and will order another pair. Also, if
you tell Hood your inseam length, they will hem the pants before
