My search for the perfect hanger is over
My search for the perfect hanger has lasted years and I've finally found it. The thin wire hangers save lots of space but they are too slippery for certain items and they slide off... The thin huggable hangers with the grippy fabric also save a lot of space and are great for things like tank tops and button downs not sliding off, but when it comes to non button/zip downs like full t-shirts and sweaters and such they are too grippy and it can be a bit of a fight getting the shirt off the hanger. So I had a mess of different types of hangers in my closet and it looked unsightly. This hanger however is just as thin and space saving; it has grippy rubber on the shoulders & bottom to keep things from sliding BUT, if I need to hang something like a t-shirt or a turleneck sweater, I just pull the grippy straps off the hanger and wallah- no more fighting to take that item off the hanger! No more unmatching hangers. The opening on the top is also perfect to avoid stretching out the collar of t-shirts and there is an extra section for accesories like belts or ties that go with the outfit. You can turn the hanging hook any way you want and I also love that there's no extra hook on the side for hanging another hanger on it... Those things always take up space or force you to have them all facing in the same direction on the closet. If I want to hang hangers on hangers I'd rather just get an extra hook attachment for that instead.

These hangers are simply perfect! I have some clothing items that need to be hung up to dry and these hangers have the shoulder material inserted so my wet clothes do not slide off during drying. Also, they have the little hooks under the top bar that are perfect for holding camisoles in place. The metal hook swivels around so all my hangers are always going the right direction. I could not ask for a better hanger for my closet. I bought one pack the first time I made a purchase, but have been back to The Container Store to buy more packs since! PERFECT hangers! Love them!

These are wonderful hangers for the majority of your clothing. I just bought these recently and am very pleased. I haven't used them for any coats/jackets yet however, not sure how they will fare with those.

Better than Huggable Hangers
I used to use crystal hangers but "unwillingly" converted to flocked hangers because another store was sold out and just needed to buy something. Then I read reviews on this hanger and sought them out. SO glad I did!. They're slightly thinner than huggable hangers and don't give/bend as you hang your clothes on them. The shoulders are also slightly narrower (~3/4") and the slope of the curve is flatter, which is good for me, since I'm petite. Oddly enough the widest part of the bottom is about the same as my cheapy dollar store hangers, so I can still fit two pairs of skinny jeans of them if needed. I thought the notch for the neckhole was gimmicky until I used it on a standard t-shirt--this feature is what made me a convert! Only con, which is very minor, is that these hangers are rather ugly. They're purely for function, and function they do!
