Giving a shout out to all my Warrior women. The Hood-Gi is legit! I love the quality and attention to detail including the magnetic closures. Gold and black was well worth the wait! Men’s Small fits well with room to layer. (5’6” and an athletic 130 for reference)
I myself own one, and I've given 3 of these hoodies to my budo buddies as gifts - they love them! Everywhere I go people ask about the jacket, and I always steer them to Budo Brothers! Great jacket!
Very unique garment. Love the gi material
The Hood-Gi is awesome! It came with a free bag and two tube bandannas. I was stoked! It’s super comfortable and very well made. I’ve gotten tons of compliments on it.
I like this garment very much. Based on the description I was not sure if i should order a medium or large. I am 190 lbs with a fairly athletic build and prefer a more athletic fit. Usually wearing medium dress shirts from well known brands. I ordered the large and am very glad I did. It is tighter at the hips than I may prefer but the fit is amazing. It feels substantial, without being oppressive and is clearly well made. Perhaps it will soften after washing and be even more comfortable, but I am cautious because the fit is perfect now.
Fit as expected, comfortable and warm. Exactly as needed….plus it looks so cool!!!!!!
It was a great Christmas gift and the recipient loved it. Initial inspection upon arrival is that the item was as described then was gift wrapped. Thanks Budo Bros!
Nunca había conocido un material como con el que está hecho este producto es fuerte resistente y a la vez suave por dentro. Además los detalles del diseño son extraordinarios en verdad valió la pena la espera.
It is a great hoodie that looks awesome. I was hoping it would have tougher collor grips so I could do bjj in it however the collor is a little too silky. I still love it but I wouldn't suggest buying it if you want another gi. I would suggest buying it of you love the gi look and feel like I do.
Great well made Garments.
I'm 6'3" 225lbs with extra long arms. I normally wear an XL but I purchased a size 2XL as suggested. This thing fits me almost perfectly. I was worried the sleeves wouldn't be long enough but they are actually just a tad longer than I expected. I may wash in hot water and hang dry to shrink it up a bit but I haven't decided yet. It feels right as is and I don't want to mess with the new jacket feel to it just yet. I was going back and forth between the XL and the 2XL but I'm really happy I went with the 2XL. I live in FL so I'm just waiting for that cooler weather so I can wear it out. It's made of very strong material. It has kind of a thick canvas feel to it. It's worth the money for sure.
EXCELENTE, ME GUSTÓ MUCHO
Love it, quality product
Great Gi/Hood! This is my second one.
Love this hoody Gi.
Just as expected, great material, probably runs 1 size small for most people.
When I purchased the jacket it was extremely warm...and other times extremely hot. So I did not have the opportunity to wear is as much. With the weather now much cooler I can wear it more often. When originally looking at the hoodie I said wow on the price then I went for now realizing that it is totally worth. This is not your regular hoodie my comparison would buying a suit of the rack versus buying a tailor made suit whereby the workmanship is seriously different and can not be compared. So future purchasers if price is your concern. Don't look at the price please remember the ole adage "you get what you pay for" The bottom line is the jacket is AWESOME
I love this GI-Hoodie, it‘s what I was looking for. Looking to get 4XL the white limited edition
Thanks for quick delivery. Hood jacket is great Ideal for when you have no pockets in your regular gi. Quick changeing is always a plus for dojo.
Love it! Fits perfectly! I’m 5’10” and 175lbs.
Love this just as much as my Bluewave one! Just wanted the darker lining!
It is a very nice item and it has exceeded my expectations !!!
Love the Hoodie Gi. For me, if you like it to fit a little loose like a gi, order a size up. I wear typically a size 5 gi, I got a XXL, and it’s perfect. It looks awesome!
The process with you guys has been seamless... shipped almost immediately, delivered in a couple of days. Its the way on line shopping should happen. same experience for all 3 Gi-Hoodies... Myself and my two sons have all bought separately. As for the product... its as advertised, looks and feels like a wearing a Gi. I would recommend that people order the next size up from their usual size. Depending on how you like your fit, it may be a bit snug in the hips.
My Husband fall in love with it, wear it everyday. Ist wonderful and a great material.
Even my Grandmaster wasn't one now.. And I'm 6ft 5in weighing 300lbs..
I ordered one in each colour and I love them!! Super comfortable and warm. Also very stylish. Everyone is asking me where I got them. I let them know. And my students think they are beyond awesome. Thanks for a superb product.
I simply love the look and the fit. I’m 6ft2 and 200 lbs. the XL is perfect. Enough arm room and warm enough for the after training bicycle ride home.
I ordered the 2XL in both the red and the blue. I was blown away by how comfortable they are and with pockets that are discrete. The hood is very warm on cold nights walking the dog. The Gi has amazingly easy flow and is beyond durable. I am getting g 3 more as gifts for my next black belt students. I would advise getting these while you can.
if i wanted a bigger size , how would i send it back ?
I bought this as a birthday gift for my fiance, who saw an ad for it and has been lusting after it ever since. I can't give it to him for a couple of weeks, as he's in Canada right now, but when he gets back on October 3, he gets to try it on himself...until then, I tried it on for him and hope that it fits! I love it! If it doesn't fit him (he's very broad in the shoulders) we'll order another one the next size up...and I'll keep this one! It is SO good-looking, and very well-made. The quality of the item itself is significant--it is very sturdily-made, it is heavier than it looks without being like a parka. The details are excellent: the snaps are solid and work well, the pockets are deep and lined, the hood is nice and deep. The order processed fast and the delivery was prompt. Altogether, I'm very happy, and I know he'll be happy, too. We will definitely order again. Well-done!
Good fit. Better quality than expected. I do wish it had inside pockets but overall its a wonderful product. My new favorite in the closet.

My friend hand carry this awesome jacket from the US for me. Very thankful to him that the long waited Hood-Gi. I'm amazed by the weight of the package. After opening it, I'm astonished by the built quality. Very sturdy and yet still very comfortable to wear. I would love for the next generation Hood-Gi to have inner chest pocket. Cheers Budo Brothers to your cause!
I ordered a blue XXXL but got a black XXL instead. It's a little tight, but it fits. I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it, so I'll just keep it. It is very well made.
This item has quickly become one of my favorites. Quality materials and craftsmanship. Beautiful lining. It moves with me and is perfect for my early morning Qigong sessions plus it holds all of my needed gear comfortably. It’s also stylish and I get a lot of compliments whenever I wear it. My only two issues is that it doesn’t come in more colors and I need matching pants!! Great product and highly recommended. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Best Hoody ever
Super fast international shipping worth the price
Comptlely love this GI! I really feel like if I was wearing my keiko gi. It make me feel warrior even when I am outside. The new model 2.0 with the inside lining and new pockets is very nice!
It was a great day when my Hood-Gi was delivered. Ever since it arrived, I haven’t wanted to take it off! An extra special thanks to BudoBrothers for sending me a free sling bag with my purchase, I’ve been putting it to good use! And like always, the Budo Bandana included in my order is now apart of my ever growing collection.
I like how sturdy it feels and the number of pockets. I did wish they had one size larger, however, it is a personal preference.
It's definitely a head turner and I feel great wearing it, and my lady friends keep stealing it!
My first hoodgi had mismatching sleeves but was otherwise awesome. I was fine with the discrepancy because of the overall quality. But BB wasn’t, and they reached out to correct the issue. The new hoodgi is just as awesome as the first, and no irregularities. I wear it everywhere and always recommend it, now more than ever due to high product and customer service values.
First time shopper at BudoBrothers and I could not be more happier. Excellent quality, comfort, and style. Fast delivery. Loved the extras too. Look forward to the next round.
Great Jacket... Will wear it to class every day.
I was surprised by the level of durability and quality of the material, the design and cut of the shoulders and the unique pockets (I'm now shopping for EDC stuff). I will be ordering MORE since I see you guys are 100%!
I love this thing. it fits nice (i'm a little overweight so it'll be perfect when i lose these covid pounds). the button snaps are super cool and generally stay unless i'm moving fast/expansively. the outside and inside texture is nice and it keeps me dry in the rainy northwest. it also looks good over a button up w/ tie for church. The one reason i'm not giving it 5/5 is because of the sleeve lengths. the left sleeves outer layer is shorter, so the inner blue material tends to show. the right sleeve goes down to below my wrist (my preferred length). this creates a problem when i'm trying to roll my sleeves, as neither sleeve can exactly match the other. the shorter sleeve rolls perfectly above my elbow, the longer sleeve rolls just below my elbow, any higher and it's too tight for my arm. Would recommend, and will likely buy another and other products.
Quick delivery and wonderful hoodie. Extremely high quality fabrics and the inside is so comfortable
Quality is top tier and its become one of my favorite jackets. It works well as a modern "haori" in its xl size. Lowik recommended me to get it and was not disappointed.
I love my Gi Hoodie. It fits great and is super functional as well as comfortable. Highly recommend!
Ordered the xl and found I needed it a bit snugger so I did the “Hot Water Wash” as suggested to tighten it up a bit. Wonderful! I love first of all the quality of the customer service experience, very attentive and actually arrived a day early. The fit after the wash is perfect! The quality of material and craftsmanship in construction is top notch well made and definitely worth the price, which I was a bit apprehensive going in but awesome quality design and construction! Love the weight and construction details, as others have mentioned it is almost a jacket, very warm with good mobility whilst wielding a staff. Nice and warm as well on chilly evenings. All the pockets are an awesome plus. I looked carefully at all the stitching and everything appeared very, very well put together. I thank you all for producing a well made product and respect your cause. Cheers all! Eben
like the feel and the scarf ,mask ,etc.lol cool idea like the secret pockets for kubatan etc.. would really like it made n Red with Black inside or maybe dark Blue ?? excellent item Thx u Ous!! ZATO
I was looking for a hoddie that would look good on me for a long time. I was hesitant to buy until I seen one of my friends with it on. That day I ordered it and am glad I did. It looks good, keeps you warm and have no problems training in it. I highly recommend!
I was amazed how comfortable the hood gi feels. I look forward to more purchases in the future..
I have never considered spending this much money on anything other than a suit, but I decided to spoil myself, just this once. And I was not disappointed. This is the most comfortable and unique garment I have ever bought, and I absolutely love it. If you're on the fence, get it. You won't regret it.
Better than expected. This hoodie kicks ass. Perfect fit. Thanks for the extras Budo Brothers. Train on !
Very durable. Highest standard of construction. All features as described. Would recommend to anyone wanting a fashion-forward garment likely to last a lifetime.
Love the hood gi, nice and thick. The wave pattern liner is gorgeous. It looks subtle at first glance but will attract attention when people look closely at the jacket. Lots of pockets for EDC. And surprisingly warm. Good for 50-70'F weather. The hood is nice and BIG; it will cover your face "assassin creed" style if you want it to. Like a gi, it doesn't have much coverage for your neck so you might need a scarf on colder days. Best of all is the customer support they provide. There is a little rip on the seam and Erik sent me a brand new one at no charge. They say that they will stand by their products, and they proved it to me.
Excellent Quality, as advertised. Great fit!! Looks AWESOME
I thought the hood gi was an ingenious idea... for those of us who have dedicated our life to martial arts , this was another reason to be able to rock out in a gi in everyday life! Unfortunately, the first hood gi I ordered was too large. But the guys at budobrothers were so nice and efficient that I was able to exchange my hood gi with a smaller size , and received the correct size within 5 days! Thank you guys for being so awesome and so professional and so efficient! I really appreciate it! It was a pleasure doing business with you! And I will be definitely be referring my friends to your website, and will be ordering other things from you guys in the near future! Thanks so much!!
Love my hood-gi! It arrived within just a couple days and it is quality! Cool look with the cuffs turned up. It is quite a substantial jacket and very warm with the massive hood up. I’m normally a xxl guy, but the 3xl was the way to go (sizing chart is accurate).
The Hood Go is simply amazing! The quality and fit are perfect! Already ordered a second one!
Despite the color and size I wanted being listed as out of stock, I emailed asking to be told when it would be. Instead of just getting added to the usual mailing lists by a bot, my email was actually read and responded to directly by Erik that he had a look and I was in luck! They had one blue lined large hoodie-gi left. I snatched it up faster than a Bruce Lee punch! When it arrived I was excited but had to be cautious as I have a family member with chemical sensitivity so any perfumes or colognes would have been a problem. Thankfully it came out of the package only smelling of the fabric it was made from! I put it on my 5'9", 215lb, 34" waist, 43" chest frame and marveled. You would have thought they custom tailored this to fit me! The cotton shell is made of incredibly durable weave and all the stitching is very solid. Pockets in all the right places and the brilliantly designed closure system holds it together no matter what I'm doing. This piece seems to be made for use and made to last. I plan on enjoying wearing this and being active in it for years to come!
It is what I expected. No more and no less.
Absolutely love this hoodie! Fits great super comfortable! Fast delivery!
I frickin love this jacket! Super sturdy, I love the weight and thickness! And Pockets!!
Epic, @ronin_blade on IG i have big plans for this one and the white. Dope creation. The pockets are perfect
Love the Hoodi Gi. I also purchased the red matching. However, I noticed the reds are slightly different.
Honestly it’s a quality product and I love it, my only constructive criticism is that of possible, maybe change the magnetic buttons to either a long magnetic strip or short magnetic strips instead, the buttons are kinda awkward to fasten
It's badass better than I expected
Great easy ordering. Feels even better and stronger than most gi's I've had over the years in both Tae Kwon Do and Shaolin Kung Fu. I love all of the pockets especially for the phenolic Kubo I ordered from you guys a few weeks ago. Nice and warm feeling and I've gotten plenty of compliments on how it looks. Even some envy from some of my Kung fu buddies. I'd like to see like a basic black and white gi based off of these from you guys. Definitely going to order more stuff you guys because this is high quality gear and i love it. Keep it up
Great hoodie. Must have for Martial Artists.
Fits a little tighter then I expected but it works great if I only wear a t-shirt under it. Nice material.
Fits great, a little hard to snap all the buttons but a little practice should do it.
The Hood-Gi is my absolute favorite jacket! Warm enough for when weather turns chilly and cool enough on the warmer days. The lining is comfortable and airy, and the Pearl weave is sturdy (yes, I have taught class in a Hood-Gi…it was awesome!) I’ve had my eye on a red interior since the MJW teaser. I use the secret front pouch for my iPod, which I still carry (perfection)! And, if it’s not holding a Kobo, the side pockets are perfect for a flashlight. One of these days, I’m going to have to snag a boshuriken (or three) to see the ninja pocket realize it’s full potential! #budobrotherseverything
As it’s an xl and not a xxl like I used to wear it’s close fitting. A bit heavier than I expected but that’s fine. The underarm stitching is real close to the arms but I still have full range of arm motion. I like it a lot. Hoodie is a bit large but reminds me of an assassins creed style so kinda cool as well.
I am 6’5”, weigh 220 lbs. and wear a dress shirt with a 37” sleeve. I originally purchased an XL. It looked great, but was a bit snug in the chest area and the sleeves were a bit short. I returned it and the XXL allows me to turn up the sleeves a little. The return process was easy and the new one was on the way before they received the old one. The jacket is made of heavier weight material and is sturdy. I also bought the tabi socks, which fit very well and are very hard to find for my 14EEE feet. Great work and great product line. Well done.
So glad it came in red lining as a Kajukenbo practitioner! Feels great, and I love the pockets!
Great communications from purchase to shipping! Excellent jacket. It will be my go to jacket for the spring.
Love the red, waited almost a year to get a black one. Worth the wait.
I'm former sumo and look like Honda from street fighter Awesome
Just received it yesterday and it's already too warm in the SC Low Country to really wear it, but in unwrapping it and putting it on... it's really a beautiful piece and I look forward to the Fall!
I rarely ever buy anything of Instagram ads, but this really struck me as something cool. I initially ordered the wrong size but Budo Brothers fixed the order without any Hassel. The Hood-Gi looks awesome, and feels great to wear. I'm def going to be ordering a second one.
Husband loves it. I purchased it for his birthday. He's wears it only when going to jujitsu or karate (goju). The materiel feels like a gi and it's breathable. Omg love the red! My husband is currently wearing the head scarf that come with it while playing Destiny 2.
The Hood-Gi is awesome! Super high quality and heavy duty. The Bo Shuriken pockets are a very cool touch. Very unique look and totally worth every penny.
Love it! Looks and feels great to wear. Kudos to the team for sending it in with a drawstring bag and threw in some matching bandanna, too! Love wearing it when training or even going out for outside walks in the park. Will be purchasing another one if you release an updated version of it.
Excellent order, delivery (Germany) and quality of the products.
Really nice, strong material. I like how the jacket sits on me. Feels great moving around. High quality all around.
I recently purchased the hooded gi top. I was so pleased by the addition of the nice Budo Brothers bag and face covering gator that were included. I'm 5'8" & 180lbs. and I purchased a size large. I loved everything about it but found it to be a bit snug. I wanted to be able to wear another layer other than just a t-shirt under it. I contacted customer service and was able to exchange it with no problems at all. The replacement XL that I received fit great with a t-shirt and light sweater underneath. I have received many compliments on how cool the jacket is! Don't hesitate, just get one you'll love it!!
This hoodie is the perfect gift/must have for any martial artist the material is perfect it's breathable has a sleek design and being a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo this is the perfect hoodie for myself and my fellow martial artist including my sensei.
So awesome came in mail on time and definitely well I didn't expect how great it feels and just the person who designed to this gi jacket is our of this world the best.
I was waiting to have some Pictures to show for, before my review, but certainly...it looks as advertised, if not BETTER. I have made my own clothing pieces in the past, mixing materials, and designs with a strong Kung Fu, and Samurai look going back to 80s 90s Brooklyn, when the ideas of Musa Powell, and Martial Culture, was defining a "peoples". I was a part of that Subculture of NYC. I was the "Funny guy" who wore Frog Button shirts, Gi, Tabi shoes, and Combat gear...because, I am Martial may nature. I never made something as good as this GI. It is yes a Hood Gi, as well as a Jacket. The material is extremely good. Quality is TOP without a doubt. Delivery of this Item was fast, and clear, with updates in shipment made easy to track. Now, the packagin made it an experience to open, and I almost would not want to say it, to deprive another of the sense, but, its a part of the review. The Gi came in its own Budo Brothers Bag, that I now use to grab groceries with when I walk to the store. I did not order that Bag, it was a gift from them, and well, its my go to bag now. Wrap it up, put in the back pocket, and pull it out for groceries. Or, you want to take the Gi off, wrap it up, put it in the bag, and put it on your back. Its a gym stule backpack. To add to this, I was trying to figure out, what head wrap I would wear with this Beautiful Gi, but, another gift was in the bag. A Tube wrap matching the inner lining fell out of the Bag, and made the purchase simply even more Grand. From Start to finish, everything about this Product was BUDO, without a doubt. A lot of thought and consideration was wrapped around this interaction. The Gi is absolutely Gorgous. Now, it is form fitting. I am 5'11 190 pounds, with a Robust frame. I acquired a Large, and it was slightly tight around my Shoulders and back UNTIL a week later after wearing it, and stretched to PERFECTION. I am 42, so in the process of dropping stomach fat, a victorious process, and it was only slightly tight around the stomach, but, because a Fat intruder made it tight. Same, in a weaks time, getting rid of that intruder, the fit was becoming perfect. One could say, fitting the Gi, was even a motivational force of its own. Martial Gear ought to encourage a Martial Frame in the wearer, and not its self be adjusted to be otherwise. I wear this Hood Gi as a Primary piece, while the weather still permits it. It matches what my style has been for a long time. If I can post pictures in the future I will. I where it mostly opened because I CCW. When its closed, the printing of my sidearm is not bad at all, and the ability to pull the coat open with the magneting snaps, is wonderful, and able to be conducted with ease. This is now my Favorite Over coat, one I have been wishing for, for years, and the BUDO Brothers nailed it, being the PRIME of that of the notion of a Hood GI, and that of Bringing Martial Flavor into the present age. Next, would be some good TACTICAL TABI boots, that make use of 5.11 style kevlar heels, and other traits. MORE please, is my point. Also perhaps, more variety in the interior design, though the present ones are magnificient. I would get multiples of these coats, because, yes, I am a "Fly boy", being from Brooklyn and all. As for the Price, one may be wondering if it makes sense. at 150 or so... just the GI all by its self...Hell Yea. But the Gi, plus the Gifted nature that comes with it, made it a bigger Hell yea. Now, I have said enough...and the Brooklyn gab must be muted. If you are even thinking of getting this over coat, Hood Gi, then I am for sure, you will not be displeased. Warrior magic is in this package. Everyone, reamin Vital, with Vigor, with Vigilance.
Normally I don't do this type of thing, but I was inspired to give my feedback. I was very impressed by the quality of the Hood-Gi and the attention to details that went in regarding its design. I love it! I now understand the price point, because this is a quality item. So not only is it aesthetically beautiful, but it is also high quality and the design is functional and next level thinking.
This Budo Jacket is awesome! Looks great, feels great and stands out in a crowd! I may even buy the blue version! Looking forward to more themed clothing options like this one! Alex D
I wear it for all my outdoor activities
This hooded Gi goes beyond my expectations! The quality, style, fix & function are all on point. Keep a look out for my upcoming review video. (Might take time with new camera equipment on the way) Thanks for the epic work & inspiration Budo Brothers!
too small and you do not have a medium in stock - the sizes run small.
The color was awesome and my son loved the 2XL too
Love this hood gi. Fitted just snug enough and the pockets are all great placement. Thick material body and soft breathable lining. Thanks Budo Bros!
It’s pretty much just a gi with a nice water pattern liner inside it. The pockets are nice and it does decently with wind. Kind of wished it had some insulation inside it to help with the cold. Overall it’s not too bad. I like how there’s Velcro strategically placed to hold the gi in place when you move. Definitely go up one size as it is a fitted gi.
This was a gift and love it too
