Today I have received the order and the jeans are… fantastic! Purchasing online for the first time from an unknown supplier always entails some risk, but you have exceeded my expectations in terms of quality of the product, customer service and timing of the delivery. You can quote me if you wish. Kind regards.
In June 2017 I toured Northern Italy on a Lambretta for three weeks. On the way home the scooter had a mechanical failure which resulted in me coming off at 70 mph on a German autobahn. I slid on my backside for some distance before coming to a stop and was taken to hospital for observation of suspected internal injuries.
The denim on my Hood Jeans had been ripped in numerous places but the K-tech para-aramid and D30 armour saved me from any injury. The doctors were mystified as to how I only received a grazed elbow in the accident but I have no doubt the Hood Jeans I was wearing played a major part in my protection.
I replaced the Jeans as soon as I returned to the UK and never ride without them on.
I have been looking for a pair of riding jeans & had read a ton of blogs and biker mag reviews and your jeans kept receiving the highest accolades.
I ordered a pair of your K7 jeans with the D30 knee & hip protectors at the beginning of the week and they arrived yesterday. I live in Normandy so already the speed of delivery impressed me but it doesn’t stop there.
They say the proof is in the cooking and I rode for 4 hours yesterday afternoon incidentally, the average temperature was 30C. I was blown away by the quality of the cut and fabric (they fit better than my 501’s), the comfort – I never felt hot or noticed the protectors and they look like a normal pair of jeans not the bulky attire usually associated with protective biker gear.
You have a fantastic product which I will recommend to all my other biker buddies.
I visited you and bought a pair of jeans back in May. I just wanted you to know that while on tour in Spain last week, I dropped my Triumph Explorer at about 20 MPH, breaking my ankle and arm in the process. I had no road rash at all and the jeans were completely undamaged. Sadly, the medical team had to cut them off me but I managed to save the armour!
Fantastic protection and I am happy for you to use this email as a Commendation of the quality.
I crash tested my HOOD JEANS whilst trying to learn to wheelie. Obviously we were practising on private land, with the owner’s permission. Well as you can see, my jeans stood up to my lack of talent far better that my bike did. This was approximately at 40 mph.
My jeans performed extremely well in their confrontation for the tarmac, and just tore the fabric. The K-tech Para-aramid lining was totally un-marked and did its job 100%.
I always wondered how effective they would be in an accident, now I know and am so pleased I purchased these jeans rather than any other make. When I need new ones, there is NO doubt where I will be getting them from. The customer service was top class too, and to top it all, it is a British company
Thank you to all at HOOD JEANS… 10/10
Great buying experience! I am very pleased with the product received and the speedy delivery. This is my second pair of your motorcycle jeans. I lost weight and wanted to get another as I liked them completely.
Thank you very much!
Subject to our recent telephone conversation concerning the high speed accident I had whilst wearing my Hood jeans. As you can see from the attached photograph, the damage to the jeans is quite substantial but I have come away with not a mark on me considering that I slid down the road for at least 100 metres.
These jeans are at least seven years old and have had numerous washes but they still did their job. I do not think I would have got better protection even from leather. A brilliant product, at a very reasonable price.
Needless to say, I have ordered a new pair, but hope I won’t be testing them again. To all you bikers out there, if you like riding in jeans (as I do) make sure they are a pair of Hood Jeans.
