Fantastic quality, heavy duty yet flexible enough to move around in. Was debating on size, and going with the 2XL was perfect, fit just right. I'm 6'2" 225# for reference, reasonably athletic. Great to have the outside pouch and inside pockets, and the magnetic closures work smooth as silk. Shipping was super fast! Overall highly impressed with the quality and style, will be grabbing more stuff from these guys.
The quality of the Hood-Gi jacket is phenomenal! It feels super durable and I love the magnetic buttons. We ordered a size M for our son who is quite muscular in the shoulders and found that it was too snug around the armpit area due to his arm/shoulder circumference so I exchanged it for a L. The process of refund and exchange was super easy and the team is very responsive and friendly. Love the product and will definitely order more from them based on their customer service as well as product quality. Great company!
It's a great jacket, comfy, warm, tough, fits well and looks good. I do wish the collar were a bit more substantial like an actual gi though. the snaps that hold it closed could use a little firmer material to hold on to, keep everything aligned and low profile. If you concealed carry, this jacket will make it more difficult to get into your waistband in a hurry, there's a lot of material to unwrap. You'd be better off pocket carrying something small.
No Complaints, Next, I will get a large.
Great product, well made, out of the box. Sizing is close - I would definitely size up rather than size down. Loved the inclusion of a carry bag and neck gaiter!
Amazing product however I need to return due to sizing
Runs a bit small
The hood-gi is absolutely perfect. It arrived in three day, and it fits flawlessly.
Very good product, I will buy certainly one of all the product, superior quality, very good look.
I’m glad I bought it. I purchased a large, and it’s just a little snug, but fits well overall. I’m hoping it just needs to stretch out a bit. I will probably buy another one just so I can have two, because the design is badass. (I’ll try a XL next time.) Thanks for making a very cool hoodie.
Kinda tight around the stomach, but it feels so comfortable. For those wondering: 5' 6" 195 lbs and I ordered a large. Currently working on making sure that it eventually fits me loose around the tummy.
It’s heavyweight frabic and comfortable I love the hidden pockets and loves to wear it casually
I didn’t expect this kind of quality to be honest. But I’m happy with this purchase and will gladly recommend it to anyone who asks about it. Thanx
Great item. Feels very durable and will withstand the Canadian climate as a fall/early winter jacket with a light sweater underneath
The weather was chilly on 11-12 to13th I get my gi-hoodie and decided to wear it,instead of wearing my jacket and cap it was truly comfortable and kelp me warm ,love the beanie,I’ve told a few friends and posted on Facebook
I bought the gold hoodie a while ago and liked it so much I had to get the blue one, too.
This is superior. I ordered a size up as suggested for liking things roomy. It fits exactly as I like. Strong material seems VERY durable. I have full range of movement. Amazing comfort, and it looks badass. It’s like a gi jacket with a perfect hood. I’m going to wear the hell out of this. Far exceeds my expectations
We are very happy with this purchase and it’s shipment. The quality and shape are very nice. Beware if you are in between two sizes to take the largest. My husband is 1.80 meter for 85 kg and got size XL.
The Gi Hood is excellent. Nice and comfortable But you should be cautious if you order from Europe ( you will need to fill lots of papers from Fed Ex and pay too many taxes…)
Best hoodie I've ever owned 11/10 top notch workmanship, materials and comfort, never wearing another sweater again
Fits great! I got the gold lining. I ordered the 2XL, I’m 6ft, 215lbs. It’s great quality, it’s built beautifully tough. Thanks for the fast shipping too!
Love the product but what can I do about the size. I always wear a medium but this product seems to run small and need would like to know the process of getting a large. Please inform me on process
I’m a big fan and supportive of this company. Fantastic company ran by guys that walk the walk. The Hood-gi is comfortable and extremely well made.
I had been kicking back and forth about getting one of the bad boys. Finally pulled the trigger and purchased one and couldn’t be happier. I’m a bigger guy and kinda barrel chested but fits me perfectly and is also very comfortable. Very nice product.
Exactly as advertised. I'm especially glad for the little side pockets for the kobo. Just a really handy, tidy, friendly feature. Do keep an eye on sizing. I went with medium, and it fits across the chest fine, but I'm hoping it'll stretch out just a bit. I think a Large would have been too much, but it does feel just a little tight under my arms. Everything else is perfect, and it's a quick fix to have it tailored if I really need to. Doesn't get in the way of range of motion, at all. Highly recommended. I'm already getting tons of compliments on it. If you throw on a thermal base-layer, it would do fine as an outer-layer, too. With the kangaroo pocket, I could see myself wearing this on a day-hike later in the fall. Note that if you're planning to wear it unfastened at the front, the flaps (that fold across your core) stick pretty far to the sides. More than you'd expect, and you kind of need to press them a bit to get them to stay out of the way. Not a deal breaker, just something to be aware of.
Very unique as a jacket, always get compliments and questions about it. Now, the true reason I got it is because I want to use it as a base for cosplaying one of the ninjas from Mortal Kombat (Subzero, Scorpion, Reptile, etc). I had planned to cut the sleeves off but I can't do it. It's too nice. Will probably just try to roll it up as far as I can and add the ninjas colors over the top.
I really like it. The only improvement I would suggest is inner pockets. But the pockets it has aren’t bad.
Delivery to France. The hood gi has good quality. The finish is flawless. The size is perfect !
Comfortable and cool. The perfect way to wear one's love for martial arts!
Overall it is an awesome piece, my only complaint is the sizing makes the front pocket seem off centre. I am generally an XL so figured it would be the right size, but I should have gone with 2XL to have it a bit baggier. Probably my own fault for not checking the sizing guide too closely… Aside from the sizing issue, it’s truly a cool piece of gear and super comfy!
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
Would love more hidden pocket for small pocket pistol with anchor spots for pocket holster and side slits at bottom for for open carry and ventilation
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!
I love it. I wear XL shirts so I got a 2XL. At first I was thrown off by the bigger fit, but I really love it. I can't wait to wear it in the fall and winter
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.
Not only does it pass my speciation, but over over come it. Customer service is next to none. loyalty, integrity, and respect to customers. Thank you
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.
Actually fits A little stiff but becomes more comfortable with wear
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.
Great Hood-Gi. It is also amazing with all the pockets. Fits perfectly
I really love it!! Love the material and the style!!
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
Best thing I have got for a very long time. Never fully happy but this checks all my boxes. So cool.
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.
Love this, but buy a size bigger than you normally do.. I normally wear large tees and xl hoodies.. i ordered a 2xl and its a perfect fit
Should have ordered much lager than I did.
Nice fit. Nice quality. Wish the magnets were a bit stronger.
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.
A bit small, order a larger size than you would normally.
Love it! Looks great and wears well.
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
This is an awesome Hood Gi, I thought ordering an extra large would fit me well but it wasn't so I returned and the large fit perfect, great addition to any martial artist looking for something awesome to wear to competitions or around the house
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!
The Hood-Gi is beautiful. The XL is more of an L so if you’re buying you probably want to go one size larger.
A bit pricey, yes, but I honestly love it. A lovely fusion of two outfits I enjoy.
