Have you ever hung up your range gear, wetsuit, or three-piece suit only to have the plastic hanger snap on you? Or the wooden hanger separate from its metal hook? Well, kiss those annoying breakages goodbye. Ontario Knife Company is now offering the Jericho Hanger, a clothes hanger on steroids.
Made of a souped-up polymer, it can hold up to 250 pounds, plenty of capacity to stow your tactical, hunting, or outdoor sports kit. And there are J-hooks at the bottom for holding belts, backpack straps, etc. Word to the wise: While some might want to buy this to hang up their body armor, be sure to follow the instruction manual from your manufacturer, as ballistic vests should be cleaned, dried, and stored flat in a cool place for longevity and proper maintenance.
For those wondering if this will hold a vest with ar500 plates, it will with ease plus accessories. I have my vest with 4 plates, 4 full AR mags, 2 pistol mags, med kit, cleaning gear and more and the hanger show zero sign of flex. Just to test it I even hung my load belt with an additional 2 full AR mags and 2 additional pistol mags and it’s still solid.
Well, these hangers are incredibly strong and well-constructed. They will hold virtually any amount of tactical or motorcycle gear you want. The only reason I didn't give it a perfect five-star rating is because there's no way you can use these hangers to hang a pair of pants. I have some bulky, heavy motorcycle pants that I would like to hang up with my jackets, and I might try to cut out the circle in the middle of the hanger so I can do so.
Although I didn't get these hangers from Botach (due to an error), They are more than I expected. These are a very thick plastic and placing a bullet-proof vest and a 15lb gear belt doesn't put a strain on these. I no longer carry a duty load as I'm retired, but I would feel very comfortable loading them up.
