Eureka, in the county of Humboldt and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Hunting and Fishingy Jackets, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improved hunting coats.
@ne object of the invention is to provide a hunting coat which includes a game pocket capable of carrying quarry, which pocket may -be reached by either hand of the wearer, while the coat is in position, said pocket extending the. full width of the back of the coat.
A further-object is to provide a huntin coat vin which a game pocket is lso locate that the weight of the contents will fall on the shoulders and be supportedon the hips of the wearer, thus making it possible tocarry game without the-use of the hands therefor or-any additional haversack.A
A further object of the invention is to provide a Vhunting jacket having front pockets whichare strong and large, and
which are low ,enough to be conveniently accessible and which yield with the movements of the wearer and thus not hinder the leg movements of the wearer.
The above and other features of the invention are made possible by the particular configuration' of the parts and the manner of securing these partstogether, all of which details contribute to the invention.
These features and details are described and claimed in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Fig. 1 illustrates a front perspective view of the coat in position and as worn.
l Fig. 2 is a rear view in perspective show-` ing'the side construction and manner of attachment of the upper end and of the back pocket wall; and
Fig. 3 is a view of the bottom of the back game pocket, 'looking upward, `and illustrating the extensible wall construction of the pocket` and the ventilating'openings therein. Referring in detail to the figures of the drawings, 1 indicates the continuous body member of water-proofed cloth or other suitable material which rovides a main front -portion covering t e trunk of the body, and extends over the shoulders and is continued rearwardly and downwardly to provide a back portion which `covers the entire back ,of the wearer down to a point below the hips. The' marginal edges of the garment are suitably bound with leather or Speeileatoii of Letters lvPatent." i Patented Aug. i5, 1922..`
other durable material, as indicated at 1"?.
'Fastening means 1b are provided for securing to ether the front and rear portions at the walst, and such means include adjustable l flexible -strap connections and lsnap hooks and rings for providing ease ofadjustment.
An opening 2 is indicated through which the head of the wearer is introduced when Ehe hunting coat is being placed in posiion.
Referring in particular-to the front construction of the garment as illustrated in Fig. 1, it will be noted that the main front body portion is continued downwardly to a point below the fastening-means 1b and to a point about at the hips, and thence. downward the garment is bifurcated and extends to a point about as low as the crotch. An
outer-member of similar material to that of the body portion 1 is indicated at Sand extends from an upper portion on the chest downwardly to substantially cover the entire configuration of the body .portion 1.
The front portion 3 is sewed to the portion 1 at 4 to provide the pockets 5, and is further stitched at 6 to firmly bind 4the outer portion 3 to the underneath main portion 1. The outer portion' 3 is likewise bifurcated at a middle point as indicated at 7 and extends downwardly and is secured at itsV edges to provide the pockets 8. Openings for the pockets 8 are indicated at 9 and are provided by cutting away a portion ofthe member 3 and merely bindin the edge of this portion and not sewing this pocket edge to the main front` portion 1. The details of construction specified provide flap pockets which move readily to conform'to the movements of the wearer. This is indicated in the position of the right pocket as shown in sturdy construction.4
possible to divide the weight or 'the contents of theflap pockets equally on the Jfront wall. and the. back wall of the pockets, the sewing indicated at 6 providingjnr this The rear portion of the coat is;- provided with a rear pocket :termed by a rear outer wall member l which is secured at its side and bottom edges to the corresponding lower side and bottom edges ora the main back porl tion l, this bein effected by use of van extension strip il which is sewed to the respective l ment'and is detachably secured by means of peculiar mounting 4 i weight oit the contents thereof in part on the a snap hook 13 to a ring la secured to the upper portion of the member i above the shoulders of the garment. @ther suitable fastening means may be suited for 'the hook and ring, 0but the invention includes ease of detachment so that the pocket may be opened to its full width at-the top i'or the removal or introduction of game or other articles which may be conveniently carried in this single large pocket. The construction and ci the pocket places the shoulders and in part on the hips or the wearer. The latter effect is obtained because of the length ot the coat, the point of fasten- -ing of the lateral fastening means lb and the iaCtt-hat the outer wall ofthe pocket is supported on the upper end or" the main back portion of the garment. This provides a remarkably easy manner o'fcarrying a 'subn stantial weight.Y i l 1 Changes in the materials of construction Vandthesubstitution ci? one detachable fastoning means for another may be made without departing from the scope of the invention. 1 Ylt claim:
