Its fits perfect and feels great. I think its an amazing thickness and great mix of Gi and streetwear!
The Budo Brothers Hood-Gi is legendary. The craftsmanship is absolutely excellent, the design is so unique and is the perfect way to express your martial spirit! It is the favorite piece of my wardrobe. I highly recommend one for all the warriors out there.
He loved it. I got I waaay early for his birthday so I couldn’t review it till now. Thank you so much for being so responsive to my questions when I ordered. He wears it all the time.
I ordered my boyfriend the Hooded Gi jacket. It was as awesome as he hoped it would be when it arrived. It fit him perfectly, and the quality of the material is fantastic! The customer service I received when placing my order was above and beyond all expectations!! Thanks to Budo Brothers I was able to give him the perfect gift!! He has received numerous compliments when wearing his jacket, and has spoke highly of our customer service experience!! Thank you again for everything!!!!
Great product! Fits great!
I love this company so much. They really go above and beyond and I am so grateful. I bought the hoodie for my boyfriend for Christmas and even the packaging was so nice. Let’s just say I won Christmas this year.
A great jacket, way more than a hoodie. Loved it so much I ordered another for my SO. She loves it, too. Even referred some of my friends.
I bought this for my husband for Christmas. I haven't given it to him yet but I did open it up and lay it out. I love the quality and look. !. I think it will be a perfect fit.
Loved it upon arrival. Fits true to size, seams are smooth and fabric flows like butter. It’s a def 5/5 purchase for me, no regrets here
Easy to move in while practicing Tai Chi. Warm enough for outdoor Qigong and Tai Chi practice in the winter! Love it!☯️☮️
Comfortable, well built. I’d get a second one if they weren’t sold out :)
I'll be honest - I wasn't sure what to expect from this in terms of quality, fit, etc. but I've been pleasantly surprised. The fit is in line with what was expected based on the sizing information, and the quality far surpasses what I thought I'd be getting. I thought this would be something I would just bang around the house in, but it's already become part of my work-appropriate (and wife approved) wardrobe. Worth adding that there were some crazy delays due to a shipping mishap where it ended up in Sweden en-route to British Columbia, and the team at Budo Brothers went above and beyond to make things right. Great customer service for a great product!
It's a great product and it works great in the dojo and outside of it. Very durable, comfortable, functional yet fashionable. I plan to get another one and I recommend others in my dojo (and others to get one as well).
I have never come across a jacket like it. Not only is it constructed in a bomb-proof way, it looks like a one of a kind garment. On the inside it has a satin/silk feel to it which is extremely comfortable and on the outside its tough and hard wearing. You can get as physical as you want with it and it doesn't weaken or get out of shape. I have been testing this outside and it gives an opportunity to train with clothing which is closer to what I would be wearing out and about in the winter. I get the feeling this is going to be with me a very long time. At a time where a lot of clothing is made to last a season or two its encouraging to see how much thought has been put into this.
Been wanting this one for a while. Glad to have purchased it. Took some time getting used to as the magnets are not usual in coats but love them since getting used to them.
What a great purchase. This gi is what every urban and urbane martial artist has been waiting for. Heavy quality gi with a spacious hood, plenty of practical pockets (including two night-stick / dulo-dulo lateral pockets) and that beautiful Japanese wave lining. A must buy.
Feels comfortable and I enjoy the style. I also like having the various pockets available (plenty of room and doesn't feel like anything's going to fall out). The magnetic buttons are handy as well and neither stick too hard nor fall off too easily. Overall it's a very well designed hoodie
Love this hood-gi! It looks and feels good! Worth the price and it’s nice and warm for the Fall outdoor training. The size seems right too! I’ve already gotten a ton of compliments. Theres few things I would add to it so I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the gen 3!
Beautifully designed, expertly made. My expectations were measured when I bought the Hood-Gi 2 jacket; I took a chance, & I’m glad I did. Love this thing! It has a good heft to it, nice & warm in the autumn weather. In winter, some thermals underneath & I will be good to go. The hood is just the right size. Love the weapon pocket as well. Excellent jacket.
well made jacket. does not disappoint
awesome quality, many compliments...excellent stitching...
Absolutely LOVE the Hood-Gi The outside has a BJJ keikogi feel, the pearl weave and the inside is just about the same for that style of gi, the pattern on the inside is wave liner which looks amazing. Hood on feels very Ninpo or gangster Sith lord. The magnet buttons are slick and are easy to put together and hold the gi/jacket shut (except the top one when I do kata and drills). The pockets are legit so many weapon options... too much good to say about the Hood-Gi. My instructor even wants one now
Absolutely phenomenal article of clothing. Extremely well made love the fitment and overall design. The fabric is amazingly rugged on the outside while staying smooth and breathable on the inside. I highly recommend purchasing one of these! I've worn it almost everyday since I received mine.
Fantastic service! I ordered the medium and got an XXL by mistake, but Erik hooked me up with a quick replacement AND a digital seminar, and a free face mask too! Couldn't be happier with the hood gi or the service!
Beautiful piece of outer-wear, but I have a problem... I got it as a gift for my son who is studying Jiu-Jitsu, but now I honestly want to keep it for myself. What to do? Obviously--make him buy his own! He's a big boy, right?
It fits great
Quick shipping perfect fit, great style
Only 1 problem...should have bought 2 of them. My son wants one he liked mine so much. However, as usual, sold out again already. BB needs to figure out how popular these are and STOCK UP ON THEM. Maybe next year...again.
I am really glad about my Hood-Gi Is very comfortable and fit really good The quality of the materials is excellent I am thinking in get the next one very soon Thanks Budo Brothers for this great product
Folks, I already share my thoughts on this product on your IG page. Here it is again, slightly modified: I ordered a medium Gi hood & received it today. Just want to let you know that I LOVE MY GI hood!!! I stand 5’6” and a little stocky. I didn’t want the size L to be too baggy & with the way this medium fits, it’s PERFECT. It’s not too tight that I can’t add layer(s) underneath. It’s thick and heavy but that adds to the quality of the product. The only “minor” issue I have is when I put my hands in the front pocket, it tends to pull apart the bottom magnetic button. Perhaps you can resolve this in the gen 3 version. That along with “Made in China”. Seeing MADE IN THE USA on that tag goes a LOT farther with me! But @ least it’s shipped from within the US and doesn't have that new product smell - like mothballs. I have a slight issue with the flared sleeves but this isn’t a biggie and adds to the “gi” look. (Update) I see in photos that the inner lining provides a contrast for when you roll up the sleeves. Very nice! I dig the secret pocket but what are the thin side pockets for? Mini samurai swords? Nunchucks? Some other colors to choose from ie: dark navy blue or charcoal gray would be nice. The presentation is nice as the product comes in a nice mini-backpack. Over-all, I will be showing this puppy off this late Fall/Winter. Expensive but excellent, very high-quality product! And if you have a gen 3 with slight improvements, consider it bought from me!
Sizing runs small. Order one size larger than you think you need.
Quality is incredible. Well worth the price.
Love this jacket. It is extremely well made, well thought out with plenty of pockets and great lines. The lining adds a level a chic to it's tough exterior. Really happy with this purchase. Well done guys!
Amazing quality. Completely worth it. Well thought out and engineered.
The Hooded Gi caught my eye and loved the inner lining pattern. After receiving it is a sweet looking outer layer to wander the fall evenings. Great looking and feels great. Note I am a size XL or 50 jacket. It’s a bit snug in the shoulders but otherwise perfect.
The most important aspect is that the woman I love thinks it's cool. But I find everything about it really good. As 3 season wear, the double front means comfort in breezes, and a sweater under this should be very warm. And the lining us just fun! I like this a lot.
Really impressed with the quality...amazing...I love this jacket!!!
Black with strong texture, contrasted by waves of blue. The weight it carries... How it moves and feels with every movement.... This is one sturdy, heavy, yet handsome looking jacket. Awesome! I love it!
Sizing runs small. Order one size bigger than you think you need.
Absolutely love it! The hood-Gi has been on my wish list for quite a while now. Very happy with it
This is my 2nd Hood Gi and I could not be happier!
Absolutely perfect. I wish I had bought it on XL INSTEAD OF LARGE. BUT I SEE XL IS OUT OF STOCK
It fits great!!!
Good quality and good fit. Suitable for both training and casual wear. The size was appropriate and the fit was spot on. Very happy with my purchase.
Love love love it ,way better than I expected,the quality is immaculate and the style was worth the wait ,my wife liked it so much she wants one for herself.the lining is so cool so Japanese samurai,I can’t wait to wear it out. also side note many thanks to the people that handled the orders for allowing me to move up a size before it shipped
My order arrived within a week of placing my order. The Gi Hoodie is amazing; well made and is a perfect fit.
This Hood-Gi is pretty awesome. I was a little nervous at first because of the price tag, but once you get your hands on it, you know right away that it was definitely money well spent. The gi is beautifully crafted... solid and tough on the outside, yet gentle and artistic within. It is Yin and Yang. In my late teens/early 20s, I trained a bit in Kung Fu San Soo and Kenpo Karate, but my training was sporadic. After a back surgery last year, I promised myself I would make 2020 all about healing, so I have spent most of 2020 practicing various forms of Qi Gong, as well as learning Chen style Taijiquan. This Hood-Gi symbolizes my new journey into the martial and healing arts, and I am happy to have made the purchase. Thank you, Budo Brothers!
This product is amazing. Worth every penny! If you’re Martial Artist, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t buy this product. Period.
Love this. It's comfortable, it's warm, and it can pair will with simple shirts and pants.
Delivered way faster than expected and super high quality. I get lots of compliments on it since it's so unique. Makes me feel like a samurai.
This Hood-Gi is absolutely worth every penny. An amazing piece of high quality, good looking, functional clothing for budoka. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.
I love the concept and overall design i would be willing to purchase another one if you would consider a few modifications and alterations that would fit me like more pockets for shuriken and a on the inside in the back of the hoodgi there is room for a 27 inch blade if there were a leather or carbon fiber holder these are mods for my personal preferences I can also have some made for myself and I would like to see som bottoms for this and can y'all bring back the bro shuriken and the leather wrist protector thank you guys keep up the great work
I love the new design. The liner is an amazing addition not only for warmth but the design itself. The three additional pockets was also a smart idea. I will definitely keep my gen 1, but I do know that this gen 2 will get more wear during the cooler winter months.
Traditional meets the modern era! A dash of fashion with practical.
#1, love the product! #2, the service was exceptional, quick helpful response. #3 have recommended you to whoever asks
I didn’t really know what to expect. But boy, this thing is cooler than it looks on the photos. Makes me wish I were a) younger & b) really a practitioner of martial arts Coz no way I am cool enough to ever wear this hoodie!!! I walked yesterday under the rain while wearing it and it felt warm, and totally rugged Love the way it closes and the magnetic clips grab the side Wish the sleeves were a tad longer than they are But damn this is one damn cool garment LOVE IT
Over all fit is nice However the snaps are to far toward the back lower 2 we won’t snap Future design have adjustable side snaps
The hood-gi is awesome. It is very comfortable; durable enough to be used as a gi but stylish and comfortable to be a jacket. Definitely worth the wait and at it's price point i dont think you can do better as either gi or jacket
Budo Brothers more than just style a true statement prove your individuality be one with B/B Quality without compromise!
The weight is comforting - sturdy. The design is accommodating - broad backs & thick arms are unencumbered. The length is perfect - not long or short. The style is AMAZING! All that's missing are the matching pants.
I love the hoo-gi! Covid has my belly slight bigger so it's a little tight but that's a me problem! Once I send a few this will fit like a glove! Kudos on a great idea!
I had been patiently waiting for the hood gi to come back into stock and I received it very quickly after ordering it which was awesome. I am blown away by the quality and attention to detail! The sizing is right on and the material is pleasantly heavier than I expected and feels very durable. All of the pockets are great and it's a very unique style for a jacket/hoody that truely feels like a one of a kind piece. It also came with a couple gifts. A string bag and a matching tube style bandanna which was really the cherry on top. I really can't recomend this company enough. Top of the line products, phenominal customer service, and genuine passionate owners. Cannot wait to see what they come up with next! 10/10 Budo Brothers for life
My favorite jacket by far. Looks and feels amazing, definitely getting one more!
These are awesome we’re bjj guys and love em
This is a serious jacket. Well-made and tough. I do recommend ordering a size up from your normal due to it having a more tailored fit. Zero complaints, hundreds of compliments.
This was the best birthday present for my husband. Great quality, beautiful design. He is excited to wear it!
I love it, not too keen about the hood being extended but I understand why people request it. It is more than I expected with all the pockets which is what I’ve been looking for a long time. Now all I need is matching gi pants with pockets and protective knee padding.
Call me Kenobi.
The freshest hoodie I have ever worn!
What inspires you to practice? For me, I enjoy the movements in this art.

Hood-Gi Gen 2 by @budobrothers @erik_allan @mahadeo.kyle it’s martial arts inspired clothing and amazing quality and design, subtle branding and the Japanese wave pattern is a winner for sure.. I love it, thank you @budobrothers will certainly be purchasing more clothing soon
Thank you so much to @dinasaubertrex for my awesome birthday Hood-Gi by @budobrothers
Got my #BudoBrothers Gi-Hoodie
Snagged this #budobrothers Hood-gi. Love it. I’ve always said that my judo gi is the comfiest thing ever. This thing is super awesome with the soft lining, all the pockets and magnet closure (makes it look like a pullover and standard gi at the same time). The wave pattern is gorgeous. I’m short and I have some hips so I don’t always close the bottom magnet (or it pops open), but it feels great and I wear it everywhere. @budobrothers you guys nailed it.
Been working on a small clip for @budobrothers can’t wait to show y’all what we’re cooking with.
@budobrothers post workout hoodie :). One of my favorite things.
Fall colours and fall clothes.
just went and got the mail and found a package from @budobrothers on my porch! Got my new Hood-Gi and t-shirt! Guess I know what I’m rocking tonight! Thanks guys!
Thank you @budobrothers for the support an amazing gear!! Everything you need for a martial arts lifestyle!!
