Definitely good quality and everything about it I love. Only issue I have it I ordered a size over 4xL and it fits me in my upper chest more like a 2xL. Definitely much tighter then I expected or would have liked which sadly means I won't wear it as much as I would have liked to. Besides that though everything else is awesome.
A bit slimmer than most XL fits but it is an outstanding jacket. Every pocket is functional and the jacket feels great!
My youngest loves the red. “It looks really cool on me.” He will grow well with this jacket. Thank you so much.
Perfect fit, looks sharp and ready for action!
This jacket is badass! It has its own unique style and i fucking love it. You probably won't get any P***y wearing this to the club, but if your into larping as either a sith lord, a wizard living in your mom's basement, or an 80s ninja. This jacket is for you. It's comfortable and form fitting if you follow their size guidelines. I dont have any of their accessories like daggers, metal sticks or shurikens that fit into the discreet jacket pockets, so instead I use those pockets for go-gurts, granola bars and pixie sticks. All jokes aside, this is one of the coolest jackets I've ever owned. #thisjacketfucks
Sorry guys, I have not had a chance to take a picture with it on but I will soon and I will post to Instagram tagging Budo Brothers. I love it, I love it, I love it. I wore it out yesterday and I got a lot of compliments. Thank you so much for the bag and head wear. All the best
Okay hood -gi is fantastic but be sure on size I normally wear depending of material large to xlarge because of shrinking but I did order xl which fits well but was hoping the xlarge would be a little more looser but it's form fitting at xlarge for me but a great gi for sure.
BEST CLOTHING FOR MARTIAL ARTS AFICTIONADOS. A FASHIONABLE STREET WEAPON (if one knows how to use it) :) KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. THANK YOU!
Nice quality, got a bag and Vandana with the jacket. Awesome.
This is a terrific product. Great quality and amazing look. I however cannot wear it as it’s being fitted doesn’t allow me to close it around my shoulders. So that is in no way anything bad about this hood-gi, just not right for me. If you want a fitted gi to wear for comfort and travel this is the perfect thing for you. Pockets are well placed and the snaps are high quality just like the rest of the materials. I would definitely recommend this to people I know.
Excellent construction and good materials. It has a certain heft to it that I enjoy. The main thing I struggle with is the sizing; I'm 5'8" 123 lbs. and the small is still a bit large on me. Would love an extra small sizing if it had been offered; I dare not get this tailored because of the complexity of the construction.
This HOOD-GI is pretty sweet! It feels good and looks awesome. I will be flowing some solo baston carenza with this on. Great product!
Absolutely love all gear I purchased from from budo brothers, well done guys, keep up the phenomenal work guys!!!! Will pitch more in the future “
Big thanks to Eric for looking around and found the last one hiding in the stockroom! Was just the right fit! Feels great! Found all the little extra pockets it has too! Great Product! I also just put some weather spray on it to help keep it dry in snow and wet conditions!!!
The jacket is very well tailored comfortable and form fitting. It will be great for the coming winter months
Excellent service, fast delivery, great product! The hooded gi is looks very durable and is comfortable and easy to wear. It is definitely worth the price!!
Everything about it is amazing! Well made and very comfortable. Love the material and patterns.
The Gi is an original idea, an excellent way to blend the old ways we love with the modern culture that may say it’s weird to wear your gi in public. It’s well executed, quality is excellent, and the pricing, shipping, customer service are all excellent. Thanks for clearly carrying applying the excellence we strive for on the mat into a business model for us.
Great hoodie. Arrived late due to a lost in transit, but I found a kickass budo brothers podcast out of it and they sent me free stuff "for the inconvenience" Five star product and five star customer service and a five star podcast. Best lost in transit interaction ever.
Im a judo athlete so I got the gi hoodie and I love it. Fits like a glove its super comfortable
I normally don't do this but I do have to say this hoodie is one of the best well crafted hooded sweatshirts I have ever owned ive been after one of these for like 2-3 years and I have to say its worth every penny damn fine work you guys I'll most definitely buy from guys again
It was exactly what I expected. I really wanted one when I saw Master Wong with one at the 2019 Martial Arts Super Show. I am thrilled to finally get one.
Product appears to be VERY well made. I immediately washed it in cool water with lots of tennis balls and it softened right up as it is very stiff right out of the box. Those with new dogi's will understand. Like all the various pockets. It is a slightly heavier jacket. I live in hot and humid South Texas so I hope the weather continues to be freaky so I could wear it as much as possible. The lining makes it look nice and classy. Fits like a true Dogi top. I ordered up to wear over other clothing if needed. Would love to one day see a slightly lighter version for those spring and summer days when you still wanna look cool! And it us a very unique piece. Highly recommended.
This thing is my new favorite jacket! I love how its heavy duty, and fits me perfectly. loving the pockets, and the hood. only thing though I dont know if the gi was meant to be practiced in or not but regardless I`m more than happy with this buy.
I love the hood gi. I wear an XL normally and opted for the XXL. I was worried it would be too big but I am glad I got it! It is snug but fits. Super cool looking and super good quality!
Fast and efficient, from order to reception of package. I was notified each step of the way. An unexpected benefit, the coat came in a BudoBrothers bag. A nice little extra touch. Love the feel of the coat. The pockets are bigger than I expected. I ordered a size bigger than I normally wear to be able to carry weapons undetected.
This Gi is awesome
As a fellow martial artist (wing Chun, jeet- kun do, and Okinawa karate) i absolutely love this hooded gi. It reminds me of my old gi which sadly I no longer possess but the quality and tje design I can tell was made with hear and soul. Much love and respect to budo brothers and thank you!
Hello, I was a traditional artist for years, just venturing into JKD with Sifu Clay and Bev the last year. This gi jacket is dope!!! I wish this was a thing when I was wearing a gi everyday. Y'all should make Gi's for training. As a teacher I would've worn one. This is a great crossover style for both BJJ and Traditional martial arts. Higher grade for Seminar teaching. This of course is all a thought, without knowing the ins and outs of your manufacturing connects... Outstanding product! Hibi Tanren!
Hiking with my Hood Gi in Inverness. This jacket is fantastic. GET ONE!!!
Love the hood gyi. I’m 5’8” 145lbs and got a medium. Initially had a small but I thought it felt a little snug to move in. Customer service was awesome with the exchange process. Highly recommended!
Love it! Very high quality and well made. Appreciate every details including pocket for my Kobo. Fit is great! Love to see a few more improvements on the next gen!
WOW!!! In a word quality!! I don't know what I'm going to do when it gets warm. That show much I love this Hooded Gi!!

Amazing hoodie! I get a lot of compliments. Great quality!
Fast delivery, great fit
I love the quality and look. I use it for my Pakamut and Taikokyu practice. Very roomy and gives great range of motion.
I ordered this item a size larger, like the website recommended, but when it arrived, it was still too tight in the shoulders. The exchange process was seamless, and only cost me the price of the bag to return it for my newly delivered Hood Gi. Fantastic product, fantastic service. ⛩♂️
Durable, stylish and comfy. A value for money jacket for anyone man or woman into martial arts. Great service and communication.
Love this hoodie! Very comfortable and well made. Probably should have worn my riding gear instead, but it looks great no matter what you're doing. Looks great even when being worn open.
Beautiful craftsmanship, quality material... the wave pattern is absolutely gorgeous. I also very much appreciated the included bag and bandana. Thank you Budo Bros !
A great martial arts themed piece of streetwear, it looks like it will be at home in the dojo or when out and about. It feels like it is made of good quality materials and has cleverly designed pockets. It is comfortable without being bulky, though it does sit a little close to the armpits but that could change after a bit of time and a few washes.
Not only is the Gi itself amazing quality and more than I expected when ordering, but the level of service from the Budo brothers is stellar ! Quick to respond and quick to deliver. At no point did I ever question choosing to purchase and support this product and the passion behind it. I will wear it proudly in my martial arts training and archery training. Highly recommend! Thank you Budo Brothers
My Hood-Gi is gorgeous! Excellent quality!
Luanne P M.
Amazing quality, perfect fit. Thank you !
This Hoodie-Gi is absolutely amazing. Beautifully constructed, heavy duty and really fine looking. Do please remember to buy one size above your normal size. You will NOT be disappointed!! And—a BB bag is included!! Do. It!!
I got it for my fiancé and he loves it. We ordered the large and ended up having to go up to an XL but he’s absolutely in love. It has so many pockets!
This hoodie is sooooo sick! I love it!! Definitely worth the buy
The hood-gi absolutely rocks! As someone who has been training seriously in the martial arts for 37 years now, I have to say that this is one of the most comfortable articles of training clothing that I have ever owned! I also like the fact that the hood-gi is stylish enough to wear around town and not have people wondering why it is that you are wearing a “martial arts suit.” The hood-gi is probably best decribed as Star Wars meets Assassin’s Creed- enough said... Thanks for coming up with such a killer product.
My new favorite!
I love the side pockets as they fit my Phenolic Serrada Sticks perfectly as I’m walking around. The material is awesome. I know this can take a beating and still be smooth on the inside. I really enjoyed the extras that came with it...THANK YOU!
This thing is Amazing!! I absolutely love it!! Great for training, casual wear, and even a nice night out. Extremely functional with pockets for storage and concealment of weapons! So glad that I made the purchase! This is well worth the money spent! Bravo to the Budo Brothers for producing such a wonderful must-have for any Martial Artist!!!
I'm really digging the hood-gi. My only issue is as a bigger man needed a bit more room under the arms, and around the waist.
I really liked this coat and primarily use it as outer wear to match my training uniform. Sizes run a little smaller than expected, I originally ordered the XL but ended up giving it to my teenage son and reordered a 3XL which fits perfectly.
Item was packaged well and I really appreciated the extras. Great stitching and quality fabrics. The magnetic closure could be stronger but that may just be personal preference. The fit is solid, I really appreciate the longer sleeves. My only wish was that there were splits in the sideseams on the bottom of the jacket.
Outstanding quality highly recommended
I order a smaller size, the material and cutting is hood , I decided to keep it for my daughter and purchase another one
The jacket is well made and handsomely designed. However, the sizes run small--at least for me. I am a shade over 6 feet tall and have a 48" chest and a 36" waist. I ordered a 2X. I thought I would have to use the shrink to fit option, but I found the jacket to be more of a European (tapered) fit. The 2X was a tad snug across the back. Order a size up for best fit.
Got this for my Husband as a gift for getting his black belt. He’s been wanting one for what seems like ever and it was a nice little surprise. He is thrilled with the quality and design. Beautifully built.
Love the hoodie! Lots of compliments from the dojo :)
Fits and feels better then i would have ever thought
This an extremely satisfying garment. Excellent materials and workmanship. Very nice details in the closures and pockets. Totally pleased. Great value.
It’s comfy and looks awesome. I love the magnetic buttons !
A extremely attractive and well built hoody. Not as heavy as a traditional dogi, but solid and comfortable, haven't washed it yet, so the material is quite stiff . Sizing is right on, I take a large and the hoodie fits perfectly. Magnetic buttons and well thought out pockets make this a great coat I'm hoping to wear for a long time.
Great look and fit, the exterior seems extremely durable while the liner is soft as silk. Nice job brothers.
This Hood-Gi is Bad Ass! Buy ONE NOW!!!
Just received my Hood Gi after some months on the order list. Fantastic jacket! Good pocket placement and very tasty lining pattern. Just trying it on got compliments from the spouse. One note on sizing- order UP! I have a 48 inch chest and 38 inch waist, and the 2XL fits perfectly. XL would have been too tight. The perfect extra layer for getting to night class at the dojo!
Excellent quality and finish. Proud to wear it around the house, to training or around town.
Its fits perfect and feels great. I think its an amazing thickness and great mix of Gi and streetwear!
The Budo Brothers Hood-Gi is legendary. The craftsmanship is absolutely excellent, the design is so unique and is the perfect way to express your martial spirit! It is the favorite piece of my wardrobe. I highly recommend one for all the warriors out there.
He loved it. I got I waaay early for his birthday so I couldn’t review it till now. Thank you so much for being so responsive to my questions when I ordered. He wears it all the time.
I ordered my boyfriend the Hooded Gi jacket. It was as awesome as he hoped it would be when it arrived. It fit him perfectly, and the quality of the material is fantastic! The customer service I received when placing my order was above and beyond all expectations!! Thanks to Budo Brothers I was able to give him the perfect gift!! He has received numerous compliments when wearing his jacket, and has spoke highly of our customer service experience!! Thank you again for everything!!!!
Great product! Fits great!
I love this company so much. They really go above and beyond and I am so grateful. I bought the hoodie for my boyfriend for Christmas and even the packaging was so nice. Let’s just say I won Christmas this year.
A great jacket, way more than a hoodie. Loved it so much I ordered another for my SO. She loves it, too. Even referred some of my friends.
I bought this for my husband for Christmas. I haven't given it to him yet but I did open it up and lay it out. I love the quality and look. !. I think it will be a perfect fit.
Loved it upon arrival. Fits true to size, seams are smooth and fabric flows like butter. It’s a def 5/5 purchase for me, no regrets here
Easy to move in while practicing Tai Chi. Warm enough for outdoor Qigong and Tai Chi practice in the winter! Love it!☯️☮️
Comfortable, well built. I’d get a second one if they weren’t sold out :)
I'll be honest - I wasn't sure what to expect from this in terms of quality, fit, etc. but I've been pleasantly surprised. The fit is in line with what was expected based on the sizing information, and the quality far surpasses what I thought I'd be getting. I thought this would be something I would just bang around the house in, but it's already become part of my work-appropriate (and wife approved) wardrobe. Worth adding that there were some crazy delays due to a shipping mishap where it ended up in Sweden en-route to British Columbia, and the team at Budo Brothers went above and beyond to make things right. Great customer service for a great product!
It's a great product and it works great in the dojo and outside of it. Very durable, comfortable, functional yet fashionable. I plan to get another one and I recommend others in my dojo (and others to get one as well).
I have never come across a jacket like it. Not only is it constructed in a bomb-proof way, it looks like a one of a kind garment. On the inside it has a satin/silk feel to it which is extremely comfortable and on the outside its tough and hard wearing. You can get as physical as you want with it and it doesn't weaken or get out of shape. I have been testing this outside and it gives an opportunity to train with clothing which is closer to what I would be wearing out and about in the winter. I get the feeling this is going to be with me a very long time. At a time where a lot of clothing is made to last a season or two its encouraging to see how much thought has been put into this.
Been wanting this one for a while. Glad to have purchased it. Took some time getting used to as the magnets are not usual in coats but love them since getting used to them.
What a great purchase. This gi is what every urban and urbane martial artist has been waiting for. Heavy quality gi with a spacious hood, plenty of practical pockets (including two night-stick / dulo-dulo lateral pockets) and that beautiful Japanese wave lining. A must buy.
Feels comfortable and I enjoy the style. I also like having the various pockets available (plenty of room and doesn't feel like anything's going to fall out). The magnetic buttons are handy as well and neither stick too hard nor fall off too easily. Overall it's a very well designed hoodie
Love this hood-gi! It looks and feels good! Worth the price and it’s nice and warm for the Fall outdoor training. The size seems right too! I’ve already gotten a ton of compliments. Theres few things I would add to it so I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the gen 3!
Beautifully designed, expertly made. My expectations were measured when I bought the Hood-Gi 2 jacket; I took a chance, & I’m glad I did. Love this thing! It has a good heft to it, nice & warm in the autumn weather. In winter, some thermals underneath & I will be good to go. The hood is just the right size. Love the weapon pocket as well. Excellent jacket.
well made jacket. does not disappoint
awesome quality, many compliments...excellent stitching...
Absolutely LOVE the Hood-Gi The outside has a BJJ keikogi feel, the pearl weave and the inside is just about the same for that style of gi, the pattern on the inside is wave liner which looks amazing. Hood on feels very Ninpo or gangster Sith lord. The magnet buttons are slick and are easy to put together and hold the gi/jacket shut (except the top one when I do kata and drills). The pockets are legit so many weapon options... too much good to say about the Hood-Gi. My instructor even wants one now
Absolutely phenomenal article of clothing. Extremely well made love the fitment and overall design. The fabric is amazingly rugged on the outside while staying smooth and breathable on the inside. I highly recommend purchasing one of these! I've worn it almost everyday since I received mine.
Fantastic service! I ordered the medium and got an XXL by mistake, but Erik hooked me up with a quick replacement AND a digital seminar, and a free face mask too! Couldn't be happier with the hood gi or the service!
Beautiful piece of outer-wear, but I have a problem... I got it as a gift for my son who is studying Jiu-Jitsu, but now I honestly want to keep it for myself. What to do? Obviously--make him buy his own! He's a big boy, right?
It fits great
Quick shipping perfect fit, great style
Only 1 problem...should have bought 2 of them. My son wants one he liked mine so much. However, as usual, sold out again already. BB needs to figure out how popular these are and STOCK UP ON THEM. Maybe next year...again.
I am really glad about my Hood-Gi Is very comfortable and fit really good The quality of the materials is excellent I am thinking in get the next one very soon Thanks Budo Brothers for this great product
Folks, I already share my thoughts on this product on your IG page. Here it is again, slightly modified: I ordered a medium Gi hood & received it today. Just want to let you know that I LOVE MY GI hood!!! I stand 5’6” and a little stocky. I didn’t want the size L to be too baggy & with the way this medium fits, it’s PERFECT. It’s not too tight that I can’t add layer(s) underneath. It’s thick and heavy but that adds to the quality of the product. The only “minor” issue I have is when I put my hands in the front pocket, it tends to pull apart the bottom magnetic button. Perhaps you can resolve this in the gen 3 version. That along with “Made in China”. Seeing MADE IN THE USA on that tag goes a LOT farther with me! But @ least it’s shipped from within the US and doesn't have that new product smell - like mothballs. I have a slight issue with the flared sleeves but this isn’t a biggie and adds to the “gi” look. (Update) I see in photos that the inner lining provides a contrast for when you roll up the sleeves. Very nice! I dig the secret pocket but what are the thin side pockets for? Mini samurai swords? Nunchucks? Some other colors to choose from ie: dark navy blue or charcoal gray would be nice. The presentation is nice as the product comes in a nice mini-backpack. Over-all, I will be showing this puppy off this late Fall/Winter. Expensive but excellent, very high-quality product! And if you have a gen 3 with slight improvements, consider it bought from me!
