Slim lightweight hangers conserve space in suit bags and hotel closets. New Higher Hangers free up vertical space in addition to bulk.

While typical hangers slope downward from the hook, Higher Hangers dip at the center, then rise on each side in a kind of shoulder shrug.

Clothing hangs up to four inches closer to the top of the suit bag or closet rod than on sloping hangers. Long coats and dresses droop less in hanging bags and are less likely to drag the floor in short closets.

Higher Hangers come in a choice of smooth or felt-flocked plastic, all with rotating metal hooks and notches near each end to secure narrow straps and reduce slippage.

Higher Hangers in packs of 40 for about $65 at higherhangers.com.
