I have probably bought 75 of these over several years but have only just got round to writing a review.. I tried them because I was fed up with the usual wire or plastic hangers bending or snapping when I hauled my clothes out of my tightly packed small wardrobe (the wife has the large wardrobe). They do not bend or snap even with heavier items, they have a thin profile so more clothes can be stored compared to thicker plastic or wooden hangers and they are very good value. I was concerned initially that being made of plated steel they might go rusty but I have had no such problem. If you really do have to have the toughest of the tough then the 6mm diameter steel hangers would be the answer, but for everyday use these 4mm hangers are brilliant.
