Recently had a proper off wearing a pair of Hood jeans. Leaving aside comments about drivers going the wrong way on one-way streets, never mind that I never thought it would happen to me, what I can say I will definitely be replacing these jeans like-for-like. Several holes and slide abrasions in the outer jean material but the inner full-length liner completely held and I feel the overall package really cushioned a number of pretty significant hits. Three days on and although I have a busted collarbone, my legs are fine. Keep in mind that my Hood jeans have been worn and washed countless times over more than 3 years – they are not straight out of the packet. Also, in this case the car hit me before the bike – on my thigh. Big bruise but no fracture. After seeing the damage these jeans soaked up, I am also going to throw away a pair from an alternative brand that do not have the inner all the way down the leg – pointless.
