Feb. 25, 1-930. 5. s. JARRETT EMERGENCY PROTECTIVE COVERING Filed June 26, 1928 INVENTOR ATTORNEYS protecting the booted feet of non-resihent means the part which it is intended to Patented Feb. 25, 1930 UNITED STATES PATENT- OFFICE EDWIN S. JARBETT, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

EMERGENCY PROTECTIVE COVERINQ- lfiplio'ation filed 'June 26, 1928. Serial No. 288,392.

The object of my invention broadly is to provide emergency protective coverings for the feet, hands or other parts of :the bodying nianually substantially conformed to parts to be protected and which will thereupon automatlcally maintain their said con formed ositions. I v v The 0 ject-of my invention, more specifi cally, is to'provide inexpensive and warm, discardable emergency coverings articularly designed for temporarily enclosing and the wearer and which may be wrapped snugly around the feet, ankles and adjacent portions-of the leg. M invention comprises generally a sheet of. exible material provided with pliable 4 for maintaining the sheet in its folded or wrapped position against unintentional displacement, said flexible sheet preferably having an outline shape to permit it to be wrapped around to suitably embrace protect, without undue bulkiness. My invention more particularly comprises a flexible sheet of heat insulating material, such as felt, protected on one or both sides by paper 'or other suitable fabric treated or untreated, said sheet having embedded therein or-mcorporated therewith a pliable nonresilient means such for instance as a wire fabric.

Practical embodiments of my invention are represented in the accompanying drawings,

.in which Fig. 1 represents inside elevation one form of my emergency covering in the positionit assumes when wrapped around a booted foot.

' -'Fig. 2 represents atop plan view of the same,

Fig. 3 represents folded flat position;

the covering in its unportions of the covering 4 being broken away to disclose the parts withinthe same.

Fig. 4 represents a detail section through d scale.

the covering on a very much enlarge booted foot, the

Fig. 5 represents a similar section showing the pliable non-resilient means located-in a difierent position-in the covering.

A sheet of flexible heat insulating material 1 as, for instance, felt of the desired thickness may be covered-on one or both sides, in the present instance, on both sides, by-sheets of paper or other fabric 2 and 3 which may be'treated or untreated, as desired. In the form shown in Figs. 1' to 4 inclusive, the I sheet has embedded therein pliable non-resilient open mesh wire fabric 4, while in Fig. 5 the wire fabric 4 is shown as located exterior to the coating 3 and is covered by another sheet 5 of paper or other fabric which may be treated or untreated. This composite sheet of material which forms the emergency covering may be, if so desired, shaped in outline to render it particularly applicable for the part which. it is to protect so that it may be substantially conformed to the, said part Without undue bulkiness. For instance, in Fig. 3 I have :shown the forward portion of thesheet as tapered and the rear portion of the sheet as being oppositely notched, thus rendering thisparticular sheet applicable for wrapping around a booted foot. In this form. after the foot is properly placed upon the sheet, the wings at the rear portion thereof may be folded upwardly and forwardly around the heel portion of the booted foot. The side portions of the sheet may then be folded upwardly over the foot and then the forward portion may be folded back over the top of the foot. It will thus be seen that the ankle and the adjacent'leg' portion will be enveloped and well protected from the elements, it being understood that in whatever'manner the covering is folded about the foot or other part to be protected,

it will automatically maintain itself in such position until intentionally removed.

, From. the above description itwill be seen that I have provided a heat insulating c'overing which will be very inexpensive, warm and neat and which may be sold in quantities in its flat form and then shaped by the wearer to suit his particular requirements,,

the covering being so cheap that it may be readily discarded after it has served its purpose.

'It is evident that various changes maybe made in the materials employed and in the outline shape of the covering without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention, hence I do not intend to be limited to the particular embodiments herein shown and described, but what I claim is: p 1. An emergency protective covering for a booted foot comprising a fiat sheet of flexible heat insulating material having incorporated therewith a pliable non-resilient'means, said protective covering being shaped to form a tapered front portion and an oppositely notched rear portion whereby the covering may be applied to the foot to protect the foot, ankle and adjacent leg portion by folding. the wings for med b the notched rear portion upwardly and fbrwardly around the heel portion of the foot, folding the side portions upwardly over the foot and folding the front portion back over the top ofthe foot, said protective covering being capable of maintaining 5 itself in its conformed position.

2. An emergency protective covering for a booted foot comprising a flat sheet of felt hav'ng incorporated therewith a pliable nonresilient wire fabric, said protective covering being shaped to form a tapered front portion and an oppositely notched rear portion whereby the covering may be applied to the foot to protect the foot, ankle and adjacent leg portion by folding the Wings 'formed by the notched rear-portion upwardly and forward- 1y around the heel portion of the foot, folding the side portions upwardly over the foot and folding the front portion back over the top of the foot, said protective covering being 40 capable ofn aintaining itself in its conformed 'position.

In testimony, that I claim the foregoing as my inventioml have signed my name this 11th day of June, 1928.;

"EDWIN S. JARRETT.
