These hangers are HUGE! Almost too big, really. While they hold up a heavy leather jacket very well, they are so wide that they force the jacket against the back wall of most closets if positioned perpendicular to the rod. The hook can be rotated so as to place the garment at an angle but this will require more closet space.
They do work. They distribute force over a much larger surface area than a standard hanger and minimize pull on the seams.
They are so thick that a hanging garment almost looks like it is being worn by someone, but this will help with drying. (Posted on 3/3/11)
