These: https://www.rst-moto.com/rst-technical-aramid-2210-jeans.html

are the most comfortable Kevlar jeans I've owned!  :028:

Sorry, forgot to add, I can't comment on the Hood's, as never owned them!

I have the k7s. Comfortable, look good and after 4 summers of use (and I wear them all the time when on the bike.  They are still in excellent condition. I did have a minor issue with one of the bits of Knox armour In the knees when the velcro separated but called Hood and they replaced without question. An excellent company and brilliant product. Plus you would be supporting one of the few UK bike clothing manufacturers left.  Mine have the older kevlar lining which could get hot in really warm weather but hood changed the material last year to a softer more comfortable kevlar fabric - my mate has a pair of the newer ones and he thinks they are brilliant (they replaced a pair of RST ones).

Sound good Steve. What are they like with regards to washing? Just chuck them in with the rest of the wash and do they survive in the tumble drier?  :820:

We just wash them the same as normal denims; however, have never used a tumble dryer so can offer you no advice on that front. They wash up well though.

My comments on the hood jeans here: http://z1000sx.co.uk/index.php/topic,8242.msg100314.html#msg100314

Do not tumble dry them - it's in the wash instructions!

I used to ride in Hood jeans (specially ordered them from UK). But in the summer I found them very uncomfortable - boiling my "Staff" and hardly breatheable. Last year I have purchased a pair of Bullit SR 6 jeans and I love them. They do not use kevlar but covec material which breathes much better than kevlar so they have become my no 1 riding jeans especially for warm and hot days:)
