Hard Brit Lads puts a spotlight on horny guys from the UK, a lot of them wearing athletic attire. There are a variety of models with a mix of smooth twinks, sporty jocks, a couple black men and even a couple very masculine guys in their thirties, and most have uncut cocks. These Brits do everything from jerking off alone and with another guy to sucking cock and fucking. The tour is setup similarly to the member area, so you have an opportunity to preview each video, photo set and model before joining. From the tour you can also reach the blog, which gives you updates on what they are doing at the site. Ready to learn more about Hard Brit Lads? Then join me for a look at the member area!
The member homepage of Hard Brit Lads consists of navigation links that run across the top of the page, a search box and the latest video updates. The site is easy to navigate and finding what you want only takes a few clicks. By default the six most recent videos are listed by a large thumbnail and included the model name, date added and a short description. You can sort the videos, display up to 18 on the page or perform a search using the search box on the upper right. The site has added 5 updates so far this month, each between 2 and 9 days apart. Since I like to find a favorite model and see all of their work, I was happy to see the site includes a model index.
There are currently 32 videos in the Hard Brit Labs member area. Each video is offered in high definition streaming Flash, downloadable high and medium resolution MP4 and smaller M4V. The larger MP4s are shown at 960x540 with a bitrate of about 2.8 Mbps, and they're good quality, although they could be a little sharper. The 2 smaller sizes of downloadable videos are suitable for slower broadband and handheld portables like an iPod, and are also good quality. The Flash videos can be streamed in either HD at 906x500 or standard, and were generally a little below average quality.
Hard Brit Lads offers 32 photo sets of digital stills that are good amateur quality. Sets have as few as 30 photos and as many as 253. Each video has a matching gallery but you cannot access it directly from the video page. You can, however, access the corresponding video from the photos page. Galleries are presented with pages of very small thumbs. Clicking a thumb will launch the full-sized photo in a light box where it is shown at between 442x660 to 534x800 depending on the set. The light box allows you to scroll through the photos but there is no slideshow feature. There is also no way to save individual photos or download them in a zip file.
The site offers a blog in the free area, and a forum for members. Currently the forum only offers a handful of posts, but hopefully will grow busier over time. There's also a section called Pin-Ups, which currently features 5 models, each in one full-sized downloadable pic that has a big watermark on the upper left corner. There are no bonus sites or feeds.
Considering how new the site is, I was actually surprised at how much I liked Hard Brit Lads. Updates happen every 2 to 9 days, averaging once a week, and each featuring fit uncut UK guys. Many are smooth twinks or jocks, but these aren't cute and adorable - they're mostly pretty masculine and have a little attitude. There are 32 exclusive videos available in multiple formats, and 32 photo sets of digital stills. As a member you are free to download and keep any videos you want as the site does not use DRM. If you are looking for hot and sporty guys from the United Kingdom, and don't mind smaller sites, I recommend that you check out Hard Brit Lads!
