Black+Gray hanger

I've broken more hangers than I could possibly count trying to keep my leathers dry and out of the way. After doing some research I found these hangers that are a bit pricey so I put them on my gift list. Well, got one for Father's Day

It is exactly as described and works beautifully. My jacket goes onto the hanger very easily and slipping it off when I'm ready to go is equally simple. It is sufficiently sturdy such that there is no bending action at all.

I got all three clips (two for pants, one for gloves) and find that I don't use the one for gloves really. Probably because I just store them near my helmet in the garage rather than in the house.

Just thought I'd throw this bit up in case anyone else was as annoyed as I was with hanging the heavy gear up.

those look pretty cool...

I got one somewhat like that but no clips from DPPowersports at a Trackoholics Trackday and LOVE IT... the leathers go on and off easy and it's spreads the jacket out some so that it air dries fast.. the clips however seem like a nifty thing to keep your gloves in the same location.. for now I throw them in the tupperware container with other misc. items...

I was considering those plastic chocks like what is on that same site for a bit, till I saw those condor and baxley pull in chocks ... NOW that's what I want.. so I dont' have to rely on someone helpin tie down the bike while holding it upright....

This does look like a good product. Is pricey but looks like it would last a lifetime. I like the clips that u can get to hang everything together. Thanx for the post.

A coat hanger?! I was wondering wtf a "hanger" was in relation to bikes!

I've got a solid, padded hanger. The arms are about 3" in diameter. It was previsouly used to hang a suit jacket. Like you said, E, it's good to have a hanger that opens the jacket out for faster drying.






(HAHAHAHA, I'm still trying to deal with the fact that we're discussing which coat hanger to buy. )

Fireblades is workin on gettin a group buy for the Baxley chocks - hope it works out cuz I'm gettin me at least 2.

Between those and the Cycle Cinch Strap (way better than the canyon dancer) tieing my bikes down will be such a breeze alone

yeah cookie it is rather funny to think we are comparing hangers for our suits but in all honesty I never thought it really made a difference when I first saw DP selling those at a trackday till I got it and started using it compared to a regular heavy hanger

Yeah, it looks like a great idea, but I just can't get my head around spending over AUD$40 on a coat hanger and that's for the basic model. The "does everything" model is over AUD$90!!

Now, I realise that leathers are an expensive investment, but I just couldn't justify the cost of that hanger.

To each his own, though...

I don't know what kinda crappy hangers you all are using, but I've never had a problem with my hangers. I either use a plastic suit hanger with a metal hook or the cheapo walmart solid plastic ones. Never had a problem with them and my leather jacket or my padded textile one...

OH GOD... NO WAY would I spend that much either for a hanger LOL... I only paid $ 15 for mine (no clips for pants or gloves)

US$15 is over AUD$21. That's still about $20 too much.
