Nice fit, love the feel of the inner layer, looks awesome.
I'm 6'2 250+ and the 2X feels a little big/baggy on me. Material feels durable and the color is very exuberant but it's not the most comfy. Waiting for the real cold to set in to test it out. The look and ability to roll up the sleeves are pretty tight as are the buttons to close up the hoodgi. Hood is incredibly full,pulled all the way on you look like a Sith with how it drapes lol. So far a decent product and buy...maybe a little pricey for the turnout but if I enjoy it in winter I might get a XL in Blue to go with my 2X Gold. PS- can't wait for my phenolic serrada sticks to arrive also
Very nice !!! I love it !!!
I had no idea that I could look AND feel this good!!
Excellent quality, like the snap buttons, thickness of material, cut and design. Carry bag is very nice. Classy product, looks durable.
Fabric a good quality and durable. The liner has a pleasing design not too busy. Love all the pockets.
Feels like my actual gi! Love it.
Worth. Every. Penny. The Hood-Gi is well designed using quality fabric, with stylish details that include discreet layers around the midsection that could deflect sharp objects if training with knives. The sizing note on the website is accurate, I’m 5’11” and 150lbs (female) and the medium was snug. Customer service is excellent. Highly recommend.
Working with Budo Brothers is always a great experience. They are thoughtful, quick to respond and I love my Hood Gi! Thanks Budo Brothers!
Not bad, different, no regrets purchasing , interesting design
My wife, Nicolle, purchased this for a father's day gift for me. I'm always looking for something different. This hit the nail on the head for me. It's very well made. Seems to be very durable material. It's a touch too warm, outside, for me to be wearing it, now. I'm looking forward to wearing it once it cools down. Definitely, a hoodie to show off.
it fits great
My husband loved it.

I purchased the Budo Brothers hooded Gi, which I call the "Prayer Gi," for my grandson. He prays before his Muay Thai fights. It's perfect for him. He was very pleased the way it fit, and the smooth gold lining. Excellent quality, also excellent customer service! Budo Brothers rock!
The Hood-Gi is awesome.
Very sturdy and comfortable, definitely worth the price !!!
The quality of the material and construction alone exceeded expectations! The Gi Hoodie not only fits well, but the attention to small details (like the magnetic buttons) make it all the more worthwhile! Absolutely recommend getting one for yourself!
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5/5) Review: It's not often that I'm inspired to write reviews, but this unique Hoodie Gi has motivated me to share my experience. It's more than just a garment; it's an embodiment of style, functionality, resilience, and a quintessential asset for anyone passionate about martial arts, or in fact, anyone who prioritizes comfort and quality. To begin with, the Hoodie Gi proves itself as a stellar companion for my reality-based martial arts routines. It encapsulates the robustness of a traditional Gi, offering the ideal amount of weight and resistance for martial arts training. Thanks to its sturdy construction, reinforced stitching, and high-grade material, it supports easy and fluid movements, mimicking the sensation of an opponent's grip while promising durability. What's interesting is that this doesn't compromise the daily wearability one would expect from a hoodie. The deep, secure pockets are thoughtfully designed to safely store your essentials. Unlike the conventional hoodie, this one does not have a drawstring, lending it a sleek and contemporary look, while still offering the same protection from the elements with its sturdy hood. The Hoodie Gi's compatibility with everyday scenarios is commendable. Its modern, minimalist design makes it versatile enough for a myriad of situations, whether you're training at the dojo, shopping for groceries, or having a casual get-together with friends. The comfort level of this Hoodie Gi is exceptional. Crafted from top-notch, breathable fabric, it moderates temperature effectively, providing warmth when it's cool and staying cool when it's warm. The fabric is soft against the skin and maintains its shape, texture, and vibrancy, even after numerous laundry cycles. However, what truly sets this Hoodie Gi apart is its perfect balance of function and aesthetics. The thoughtfulness of the design that caters to the wearer's needs is evident. In the Hoodie Gi, you are always ready to transition between a workout session and a casual outing without needing to change your attire. Although some may hesitate at the price point, I firmly believe that it epitomizes 'you get what you pay for.' The Hoodie Gi is an investment that yields substantial value over time. You're not just spending money; you're investing in adaptability, convenience, longevity, and, most importantly, comfort. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly endorse this Hoodie Gi to everyone. Whether you're a martial arts enthusiast, a fitness lover, or someone who seeks comfort and style in everyday wear, this Hoodie Gi will surpass your expectations. Make the investment, experience this unique amalgamation of tradition and innovation, and I assure you, every time you put it on, you'll appreciate the decision.
The product has a great fit and the material is perfect as well.
I’ve enjoyed the hoodie for about six months. For father’s Day I got one for my dad. We wear them together. Thank you.
Bought 2, one for my son and one for my husband and they both love it. Very well made, great style.
A little stiff but it’ll relax with wear but a perfect fit for me
My son and I love our hood Gis! We both wear them all the time.
Feels great and really bice are the pockets to store and hide a lot of things. Very nice Gi
Really like the way the Hood-Gi fits, looks and feels. Initially ordered the wrong size but the changeover process was easy and the guys are Budo Brothers were awesome to deal with. Very cool item that is ideal for those cooler days during the year.
It fits great for my training and it looks awesome!!
Thanks for the amazing material, the great service and the extra goodies you sended me! Greetings from Belgium!
Great quality products
I have been wearing the hood gi out and about for a week. It's comfy, breathable, and fits very well. Extremely happy with it.
The jacket is brilliant but the sizing is all wrong. Even allowing for the previous comments on sizing and the sizing chart I got a size that was too big. Awaiting on a request for return response so I can change size…which I definitely want to do because the jacket is so damn awesome!!!!
Outstanding product and delivery via usps. The attention to detail is what really brought me into the 5 star rating range for this excellent garment. The magnetic button placement is well accented by the Velcro secure closure on the left inside flap. The multiple pockets with space for cell phone, throwers, and cozy mits are well placed and clearly thought out for the modern martial artist. I’m a slender build 6’6 and 230lbs, the XL fits like a glove, with just a little tightness around my lattisimus dorsi, and sleeves (as usual) a tad short. The XXL may be a looser fit, but roll the sleeves and pop the top magnetic button and I’m in the comfort zone. It’s also just the right level of looking like a hoodie, but being a Gi. Bless y’all. Exemplary work.
Order arrived earlier than expected, the hood gi is built tough, comfortable and comes with surprises! Absolutely amazing purchase, and I recommend any martial artists get one
I was actually assaulted with this on, I see BJJ guys clowning this garment on Facebook. I have to say the protection from grappling in an urban environment in this is amazing. Absolutely no cuts and scrapes received. I bought one for my daughter, two for me and I'll be getting a third just to have color options. I love this Hood Gi more than I thought after realizing first hand the protection this provided. I wouldn't want to be in anything else grappling in gravel, broken glass and whatever else.
It is so comfortable! I find myself partly rolling up the sleeves. Of note, it looks restrictive. However, it is easy to move around in. When I use the heavy bag, I decided to wear it. Not restrictive at all. I have full range of motion. I see a second one in my future......
Fucking awesome bit of kit. Incredibly comfortable top and super heavy. Love to see how it wears in over time.
This is my first Hood Gi. My second is red. For casual wear or training, this Hood Gi is spectacular!
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! I love the Hood-Gi so much I own two of them and just bought a 3rd as a birthday gift for my friend. THANK YOU BUDO BRILLIANT BROTHERS!!!
Fabrick was heavy and tough giving me a real sense of a martial arts gi with the functionality of a hoodie. Love it! Having the interior pattern throughout the length of the sleeve made this item really pop when you roll the sleeves up.
The front pocket is slightly off center, that's kinda annoying. I'm highly aware of the seams under the arms when wearing, makes me want to try a larger size even though this fits. Probably will want a larger size after it gets washed, not sure yet. Over all, I like it.
Should have ordered much lager than I did.
Prompt service, top quality workmanship. Very impressed. Thank you!
I purchased the 2xl with the red lining and I love it. It feels like my favorite gi.
10/10 Heavy duty, feels amazing, fitted perfectly. Simply put, the best
Once I saw the hood gi jacket featured, I knew I had to get one. Based on other reviews, I ordered one size up, thinking my normal size would have been too "fitted," as others have mentioned. That was completely unnecessary, because going an extra size up gave me a little too much room, along with the normal sleeve length going halfway past my hands while in a relaxed position. Purposely trying to shrink the jacket helped a little, but I'm reluctant to do that too much as the recommended washing instructions call for it to hang dry and I don't want to ruin the jacket. So if you're an honest XL, like me, just order the XL, and you'll be fine. It's not going to be skin tight. As for the quality and style of the jacket itself, I really like it. The material and weave feels almost just like my BJJ gi's, aside from the seams being different. The design and feel of the inside liner really adds a nice touch of style to the jacket as well. If there were anything I could change on the jacket, I wish the lapel could be just slightly stiff like a gi lapel, but not as stiff as a normal BJJ Gi. Also, on the bottom corner of the inside lapel, to keep with the theme of the magnetic clasps, it would be cool to have a magnet sewn into the corner to keep that part in place rather than have hook and loop velcro, so that there's no hook catching on random parts of the jacket or other clothing. Those are just my suggestions for maybe the 3.0? Either way, awesome jacket!
Got my hood gi. I loved the material. Not too light or heavy. Feels good on the inside. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size. But the return process was super easy. Got fast answers from the staff.

I love this jacket. Feels just like a Gi. Warm and comfortable. Very sturdy. Rocks a very different standout kinda style.
I love the way it looks and feels on me. Thank you guys so much.
fits just like photos used in marketing (for me). I'm 6' 3" and the XL was best for me (I wear an A4 size bjj gi). love this so much, want to buy more or give as gifts for sure. how about some pants and other "gi-gear" next???
Great products and even better company - true to the spirit of bushido
It felt like a risk to buy relatively pricey clothing online, but it was worth it. Thanks for the great attention to quality in the material and design!
I’m very happy with the fit and look of the hoodie. I will definitely recommend it.
It's my new favorite Hood-gi. It's stunningly comfortable, very well made and it's been great to wear both to training (Toshin-Do) and just around. I will reccomend this to anyone who asks.
Great garment but personally I’d love just an inch more movement in the go at 6,4” and 270 an extra xl would perfect (5xl)
Great feel, warmer than expected. I wish the magnetic buttons held a little tighter but love it overall.

Amazing look. Superior craftsmanship! Pay attention to your sizing. The Hood -Gi is a well fitted product. It shows off your physique. I am a short stocky guy - 5’9” and 185. I chose XL and the length is good but the chest and shoulders are tight. Should’ve chosen an XXL. Budo Brothers is easy to work with and will help you out if you mess up your size.
This is extremely comfortable! I’m 5’10, 280 lbs (power lifter). Fits well around the chest and torso. It’s warm and feels/looks like a heavy Gi. I would have no problem wearing this to teach classes on a cold day. It looks VERY professional and it’s VERY well put together! I would recommend going 1 size above what you typically wear as it is “fitted”. Definitely worth the money! 3XL - Gold
It has been 1 week since I received my keikogi hoodie and I love it. I bought it to wear over my Gi top during training. I ordered it larger than I needed so that it can fit over my gi top. Great quality and fit and I will definitely be recommending it to my dojo. Thanks BB!
I thought it might be to heavy but the inner liner keeps you cool. Plus all the pockets! Will definitely be purchasing more from this site in the future!
It was a little small on me but it still real good
Both the fit and service are great!
Well made, fits perfect… material stitr at first.. expect it to soften up with wash and wear.
It’s crafted and designed wonderfully. It has just enough pockets to carry what you need, is very comfortable and the roomy hood is amazing. It’s great for colder weather, for something that isn’t wool-insulated like a heavy hoodie or jacket, you stay very warm. The inner fabric is very soft and that makes all the difference.
Really good quality but a bit small I usually fit in large and I purchased an X-Large but it’s tight
Nice material what would it be for u guys to insert a spartan warrior with a sword and a shield or a Asassins creed within it would look amazing within
The material and finish are fantastic. I'm 6'1", 200lbs. XL fits great. I thought sleeves could be an inch longer. A very interesting east meets west concept!
So your advert piqued my curiosity, and I thought I may look silly in it but I no longer care what people think about me. So I really like the hoodie/gi. It’s comfortable in cooler temperatures, though not ideal for Calgary winter. I think I’d prefer a bit heavier lapels and waist ties like a traditional judo gi. I do like the texture of the jacket, but I don’t know how often I’ll put the hood up, just because I get a funny feeling that Jay Cooper will creep up behind me and choke me out . So, yes I like it, I look forward to wearing it more in the spring.
Not being cut on the side like a normal Gi top makes it rather inflexible. The material and the style is amazing. If it had ties and side cuts like a normal top it would be perfect.
I thought that the return time for the larger jacket was amazing. I though the customer service emails and updates were spot on. I would recommend your company and clothing to anyone. Thank you so much. My spouse loves their birthday present jacket. It fits them well. (:
Absolutely love my Gi Hoodie - super comfortable for just laying around and reading, but feels like it's made for someone to really roll/spare in it.
Can I tell you how many friends I have that are going to be jealous of this? Fits well, looks great.
I was kinda skeptical about this, but man im glad i made the jump on this purchase. Excellent style and quality. This will not be my last purchase with Budo Brothers.
I love my jacket yet I need to turn it in for another size.
This is my third (of the three) gi jacket that I’ve purchased. Super happy with style, fit, quality. I am not a clothes horse, but I really geeked out on this product. Fine job guys.
Second Hood-Gi I’ve purchased now, the black and gold version makes for a fine addition to my collection.
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.
