The World’s Strongest Coat Hanger for Your Body Armor and Gear

by September 20, 2012 09/20/12

Touting their coat hanger as the “world’s strongest” isn’t much different from world’s best burger, but in this case, the World’s Strongest Coat Hanger from VK Plastics has certainly lived up to all my expectations.

These hangers were designed and manufactured in the USA (by American workers) for first responders, Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, hunters and all outdoor enthusiasts who require a strong hanger to protect their investments. I’ve found them to be perfect for hanging plate carriers with body armor and for heavy scuba diving wetsuits or anything with substantial weight.

The World’s Strongest Coat Hanger

As mentioned in the video below, I’ve been using these coat hangers for may years and have recently found out where to source more of them. The Website theworldsstrongestcoathanger.com is what I stumbled onto after calling the phone number printed on one of the hangers. It’s very hard to spot if you’re not looking for it.

I’ve seen other “strong” coat hangers on the market, but I’m partial to these because of the features. Primarily my favorite feature other than the overall mass and strength are the strap notches on each shoulder. These are great for locking in the straps on a plate carrier and not allowing them to slide off. I also have utilized the “J” hooks many times for anything from backpacks to accessories.

One caveat to mention is that body armor manufacturers typically state to store their soft armor flat and to never hang it. I very much understand these instructions and am certainly not telling you to ignore their directions. Personally, if I know I won’t be using my soft armor for a long period of time, I’ll store it flat in a cool, dry area. Their are certainly times when you’ll just be wearing it again quickly and it’s not necessary to remove it from a carrier. That’s where a strong hanger comes in handy.

Features

  • Hanger Width: 18 1/2″ Across
  • Extra Large 3 1/4″ Strap Notches
  • A Large 1 1/2″ Hanger Hook
  • Interior 3 1/2″ Slot for Blankets or Pants
  • Double “J” Hook for Backpacks or Accessories
  • “I” Beam Technology
  • Holds over 112 lbs.

The World’s Strongest Coat Hanger is available in Coyote, OD, Black and even Red, White and Blue (along with many other colors). Check them out here and tell them ITS sent you!

I was all in for some of these for my SCUBA gear until I saw that shipping was $11 for ONE HANGER!!!! They might be good but I'll stick with a ScubaPro or Aqualung branded hanger. . .

I hang my soft armor to dry & air in my locker. If I store it flat it will stay damp and smelly!

Good product - would buy if they shipped to the UK.

I've been hanging my body armor for years with no adverse effects. If you are storing it for a long period of time (for what ever reason) then flat is probably best.

I think its just one more check off the liability box for the manufacturers to say that. But I'm sure there are people out there who take it off and throw it in a corner after a shift. Like all SOP's and general orders; someone did it once so now there are rules against it.

Awesome. I have been looking for a good hanger. Wood ones have been the only kind that will hold my armor and chest rigs. These look way more functional. Just ordered a dozen to test them out. Thanks for the write up Bryan.

All kidding aside, very cool product! I could use it for my heavier coats etc.

Thanks for the info!

Although my experience w/body armor has been with the old PAGST vests I'd think that hanging body armor after a long days wear would be a good idea, if I was wearing body armor on a regular basis I'd probably do the same as you and let it hang to air dry before storing if flat.

We DO ship to the UK. Send Mark an email message at fmedm@earthlink.net and ask about UK shipping. We usually ship to Europe and the UK via the US Post Office. Unfortunately we do not have a distributor in Europe though. If you know of one, send them our way!
