IMPROVEMENT IN HUNTING-JACKETS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 139,950, dated J one 17,1873; application filed.
April 19, 1873.
To all whom 'it may concern:
Be it known that I, JEAN GARAUD, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Combined Hunting-Jacket and Cartridge-Pouch, of which the following is a specification:
In the accompanying drawing, Figure 1 represents a hunting jacket or dress having my cartridge-pouch attached. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the cartridge-pouch detached, and Fig. 3 a vertical transverse section of jacket and pouch.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts. v
The object of my invention is to furnish to sportsmen a huntingdress to which a cartridge-pouch is attached to the back in such a manner that the cartridges may easily and conveniently be carried and taken out for the purpose of loading the gun. The pouch may also be detached and carried on the shoulder.
My invention consists of an additional lining on the back, with side-openings and lapels for the attaching of the pouch, which is constructed with a leather strap, so as to be de tachable.
In the drawing, A represents the hunting jacket or dress of suitable material. A strong back-lining, B, of similar material is applied at the inside .of the jacket A, having below the sleeves pocket-like openings, at, arranged vertically in the outer cloth so as to be easily entered by either hand and be more or less covered by the arms. Narrow loops b of leather or other material are applied along the inside of the jacket around lining B and the collar, and serve for the purpose of slipping the strap d of the pouch through when attached to the jacket. The lining B is open at the lower end, and provided with a row of buttons, 6. A lapel, f, placed below the lining B, parallel to its lower end, has a number of button-holes for the attaching of the pouch. This lapel f may also be buttoned up on lining B, forming thereby a bag-like receptacle, which may be used for difierent purposes when the pouch is detached. The pouch G, of leather or other strong material, has a narrow flap, g, at its upper part with a corresponding number of holes as there are buttons, 6. Below flap 9 runs along the front part of the pouch a narrow strip, h, with as many perforated projecting lugs i as button-holes e. Aleather string, is, applied at one side of pouch 0, may be placed through the-lugs i when flaps g or lapel f has been passed over the lugs, its end being formed into a .knot, producing a firm connection of the parts. The strap d is attached along the sides of pouch O, and has a buckle, m, so as to be disconnected at one side and easily adjusted to the dress, or independently of it, to the pouch. The pouch is attached to the inside part of the jacket by slipping the strap d through the loops 1) and connecting with buckle m. Lugs i of strip h of the pouch are then passed through the button-holes of lapel f of the dress, drawing the leather string 1a through the perforations of lugs 2 Flap g is then buttoned on lining B, and the pouch is ready for use, and conveniently reached in all its parts from the side openings a. When the pouch is detached, flap g is placed over lugs z", secured by string k, and thrown over the shoulder.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A hunting dress orjacket, A, with inner back-lining B having side openings a, loops 1), and buttons 6, in connection with lapel f, substantially as described.
2. The combination of pouch O, constructed as described, with the subject-matter of the foregoing clauses, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
