… I really love the Concept 6. I don’t know why they cancelled it, though it was their most expensive model. Maybe they found everyone was ordering the K7 instead as a result? I should email them and ask.
I like them much better than my Draggin Jeans in both fit and finish. I don’t like the way Draggin Jeans just velcro the armor in with no pockets. Hood has armor inserts at the bottom of the pocket. http://www.hoodjeans.co.uk/html/original_range.html
My big feet keep catching in the armor in the Draggin Jeans. The Hood Para-Aramid lining areas extend further than the Draggin Jeans as well. I haven’t crash tested either pair, so I can’t say which would hold up best if the worst were to happen.
The Hoods are well made and are one of the most comfortable pairs of jeans I own, even with the armor in. Particularly after it molds its shape a little.
If you do go that route let me know which pair you order and how you like them. I want to order another pair and would like the feedback on one of the other models. I have been going back and forth between the black K7 and the H2 since sometimes I need something a little dressier than just the jean.
