RatingI've been surfing for 33 years now. Modern wetsuits are SO much better in so many ways, than anything in the past.(Posted on 8/4/2016) 2016-08-04
But the two biggest reasons -- super stretchy fabrics and sealed seams -- tend to break down quickly with a regular hanger. Wet wetsuits are heavy, and that weight all stresses the top parts of the wetsuit on a hanger. These parts tend to be the most flexible, thinnest and most complex, to make paddling easier, so they're the most fragile parts, too.
Just to see if I could, I've managed to squeeze three seasons out of a 4/3 Superfreak. It's pretty thrashed at this point, with glue and tape repairs in a number of places, scuffed up nylon, etc. But because I've used this hanger, the shoulders aren't stretched out at all, and they're not porous, so the suit still works. Before I got this hanger, the shoulders of my fullsuits would overstretch and then start letting water right through the fabric.
Given the prices of good wetsuits today, this pays for itself right away!

RatingI wish I got one of these a long time ago. It's solid recycled ABS plastic and has "Made In USA" molded in the web (which is pretty cool). After I hose off my suit it slips quickly onto the hanger, and by the next morning is pretty dry. No more messing around with shoulder hangers. Thanks Josh for the heads up on this one!(Posted on 8/30/2015) 2015-08-30

RatingThe hanger is really strong and easy to use. There are no rough edges to snag the wetsuit. It hangs straight without bending or angling down. Great product.(Posted on 12/21/2014) 2014-12-21
