Motorcycle Monthly on the Hood K7 Jean with the new 2015 K-tech lining;

The K7s are comfortable on and off the bike, look good and will protect me from both impact and a slide. To my mind, Hood’s jeans are the best you can buy – and they best just got better.

Visordown – Motorcycle Jeans – 8 of the BEST
Hood K7 Jean – Result 2nd      

  • Comfort 8/10
  • Abrasion resistance 10/10
  • Style 8/10
  • Impact protection 0/4

Visordown’s verdict – ‘We absolutely loved Hood’s K7 Jeans. They’re covered from top to bottom with protective K-tech Para-aramid, are £145 cheaper than our group winner, and could easily pass for casual wear’.

Reader comment – ‘Hood give you the option to buy their Jeans with or without D3O armour so if, like me, you already have some you’re not forced to buy it again. If you want the armour it’s an additional £30. A complete pair of Jeans is still £116 cheaper than the winners’.

Hood’s view – This was a great review, just a shame we were deducted the 4 points for offering optional impact armour, otherwise we would have topped the leader board. We did trial this a few years back and the feedback from customers confirmed they wanted the choice. To read more visit or for the Hood review go to

Just had to let you know that I have been wearing your jeans for years & have loved the fit & style.

But I had an accident recently so got a chance to test them too! My front brakes seized on at approx 70 mph on the M25, I got spat off the bike & went sliding down the motorway like a Moto GP rider!

Your jeans & armour worked fantastically, while the denim was shredded on my backside, the knees turned white from wear & a small tear in the knee armour. I was fine with not even a serious bruise, no cuts or road rash!

I will only recommend your jeans to friends and co-workers.
I will be buying another pair soon. Thanks.

I was taken out by a Vauxhall Meriva not indicating and pulling out so sharply, on the dual carriageway outskirts of Henley, it was as if they were avoiding an accident. End result was me and my bike cart wheeling down the road at 70mph.

My Screaming Eagle Limited Edition V Rod was totalled. I thought I was due the same fate!
A & E were swearing at you lot as it took 3 pairs of scissors to cut my K7’s off. However, they did say that it was probably the jeans that saved my right leg. This was because I had a tortional fracture of my tibia which would have probably punctured my skin had my leg not been restrained within the Kevlar and tough jean material. I counted myself very lucky. So thank you again for your excellent products and for looking after me :-)

I had been singing the praises of your products before the accident but this gave them ‘proof of the pudding’. Most of the members at Thames Valley and Oxford HOG Chapters now know of your products and a lot of them are wearing them.

Hood Motorcycle Jeans after 90mph slide until stationery (no impact), couple of rolls near the end. The outer fabric makes it look bad but the worst you can say about the para-aramid fibres is it looks slightly fluffy and a bit grubby – it would be good to do exactly the same again.

Highly recommended.

I came off the bike at around 70mph, losing consciousness in the process. I escaped any sort of major injury despite the K7 jeans and the armour being badly damaged in the process. I’m very glad I had these as I’d only bought them a few weeks prior to the accident.

The A&E department at the hospital were quite amazed that I’d not damaged my hips or got anything more than bruising to my knees.

I placed an order for some ND4 jeans with D30 armour on the 14th March, and I’m very glad I did!

Not only did they fit perfect and feel very comfortable, but they also work perfectly, which I found out the hard way following a recent accident.

Unfortunately my pillion girlfriend was wearing a different brand of Kevlar jean which did not stand up so well, resulting in road rash to her left knee.

I am intending to replace my jeans like for like and a pair for my girlfriend.

Many thanks once again for producing such a superb BRITISH product.

Thanks for quick delivery of my Hood Jeans. Unfortunately I won’t be riding to Germany next week as it turns out my thumb was broken and my hand is now in plaster. But a broken thumb and toe is not bad considering I hit a deer at 60mph+.

I must have still been doing 50mph when I hit the road. The denim tore, but the Para-aramid is untouched. The armour was a bonus – I would have broken a knee otherwise.
