I was inspired by the recent hot weather in southern California and Indiana Jones to make a collapsible hanger for my coat. It only takes 5 - 10 minutes to make one of these, fits easily in the bottom of a backpack for camping, and it is much sturdier than wire hangers.
Step 1: Supplies
All that is needed for this project is (per hanger):
About 3 feet of 1/2" PVC
4 feet of rope
1 old wire hanger
