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!
This was a gift and love it too
Sturdy - Stylish - and very warm! I LOVE IT
Just as advertised. Fits snug, but comfortably. Styling like in the dojo.
Best Hoodie ever.
The Hood Gi is awesome. You guys have designed the ultimate hoodie. The fit is perfect. I ordered the red lining. I intend on ordering another two. Another for me, and one for my son. The bag it came in is awesome to. As well as the bandana. Thanks Budo Brothers. Brothers in the arts, David
Love these coats! Top quality and feel great. They are stylish for sure and turn heads. The amount of pockets makes it easy to store and care no matter how you have the gi hoodie on.
This is a great hoodie! I've been looking for a jacket that I can use for training in cool weather, and this seems to be it. It's weighted and adds a challenge to the workout, and it keeps me warm while wicking away the moisture. It fits just as well as my actual gi, too. Best of all, it looks super cool and I can wear it anywhere. I'll be testing it more over the coming weeks, but I'm happy so far with what I got!
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!!
Luanne P M.
Amazing hoodie! I get a lot of compliments. Great quality!
Fast delivery, great fit
