Team Realtree E-Z Hangers
I used my hanger a LOT!! Like years!! It is fairly ez to get into a tree. I like climbing pines tho so that makes it easier. Hardwoods are bit more challenging but it goes in fairly well. After using for sev. years tho the joints wear out. Its hard to keep the hardware tite and it squeeks a bit. I would buy another one. I like the little hooks but could be away from tree or hang down a bit further to make hookin ur stuff a bit easier to do. I like the fact it does swing out of the way. Wish it folded up smaller. Hard to get into fanny pack for transport and you have to be careful bout pokin a hole in your pack too. I like it but could be improved upon. Prob. check out the competition before I buy another one.

Shorter is better
Ordered the 22 inch after using a 13 inch model, it is too long for me. The longer are gets in your shooting lane easier if you don't get it high enough. The longer arm also has a larger folcrum if it's not perfectly level, making it swing to the lowest spot, this action is amplified when the wind is blowing your bow around and it swings on the hanger. Additionlly my older shorter EZ hanger has hooks on it that I can hang my rangefinder or rattle bag on, this has none. It gets the job done, but I prefer the shorter model. Additionally, I think these items are overpriced.

Has worked great for years for me
I don't understand the reviews that say that this is hard to screw into the tree. I use mine all of the time in oak and hickory trees and it goes in with no problems. The tapered Uni-Bit style auger on the end goes in with no effort at all.
I like it in late seaon, when I am a bit bulked up with clothing. It keeps my bow handy but far enough away that I won't bump it and knock it out of the stand. Also great to hang a parka on while getting set up. I've even used mine as a gun rest for a particular shot that was off to my side and away from the rest on my stand.

Team Realtree E-Z Hangers are the best for your money. I have a 13" that I use for my backpack and other accessories and the 23" that I use for my bow. They can be tough to get started in hardwood trees, but they are worth it once you get it into the tree.
I also bought the Big Game 3 pack (23") for the price, but quickly realized these are very poor quality hangers. I broke 2 out of 3 hangers within two weeks trying to unscrew it from the tree. The screw broke off inside the tree. I would NOT recommend buying the Big Game brand.
