DETACHABLE H0015 GARMENT Filed Feb. 18, 1935 2 Sheeis-Sheet 2 &9 MM 5 ldi: Hula/711 L1? 5011 Patented May 28, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

The present invention relates to hooded garments, particularly such as are used by aviators, and its chief object is to provide a new and improved garment of the above-described character that shall be provided with a novel, detachable, reversible hood, and that may, if desired, serve as a pocket when detached.

Other and further objects will be explained hereinafter and will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

The invention will now be more fully explained in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 1 is a front elevation of an aviators coat, showing the detachable hood in place, positioned inside the coat;"Fig. 2 is a perspective of the hood, shown detached, but upon a larger scale than in Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a section taken upon the line 33 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrows; Fig. 4 is an elevation similar to Fig. 1, showing the hood swung outside the coat, ready for use; Fig. 5 is a fragmentary section taken upon the line 5-5 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrows, the parts being shown detached, and the scale being larger than in Fig. 2; Fig. 6 is a side elevation corresponding to Fig. 4, with the collar of the coat raised; Fig. 7 is a section similar to Fig. 3, the hood being. shown reversed with respect to the showing of Fig. 3, and showing also, in dotted lines, the hood swung outside of the coat; Fig. 8 is a section similar to Fig. 5 of a modification; Fig. 9 is a section similar to Figs. 3 and '7, but with the hood serving as an inside pocket; Fig. 10 is a fragmentary view inside the coat, near the collar thereof, of a further modification, the hood being shown detached, the scale being as in Figs. 5 and 8; and Fig. 11 is a section taken upon the line Illl of Fig. 10, looking in the direction of the arrows.

A hood 2 is shown detachably connected to the inside of a coat 4 at the neck portion 6. Asshown in Figs. 1 to 5, the inside of the neck portion 6 may be provided with snap sockets 8 into which are adapted to snap buttons [0 upon the lower margin I 2 of the hood 2. When the buttons ID are snapped into the sockets8, the hood may occupy the normal position shown in Figs. 4 and '6, swung outside of the coat, ready for use. The hood may, however, be swung inside the coat, as shown in Figs. 1, 3 and 5, when it is desired not to use the hood, the hood then resting inside the coat, against the wearers back, when the coat is being worn.

When the hood is thus inside the coat, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, there is a bend M in the hood,

, near the said lower margin l 2. The hood is, however, reversible. When so reversed, it may occupy the position illustrated in Fig. '1, in which the hood is disposed inside the coat without any such bend as shown at M. This may be regarded as the normal position of the hood in this reverse 5 condition of the hood. A bend "5 will, however, be produced if the hood be swung outside the coat, as shown in Fig. 7 by dotted lines. The reversibility of the hood is rendered possible by suitable shaping of the hood; as by providing a 1o seam l8, as shown.

The snap sockets 8 may, of course, be provided in the hood and the snap buttons 12 upon the coat; or buttonholes 20 may be provided upon either of these members, and buttons 22 on the other, as shown in Fig. 8; or a zipper mechanism 24 may be provided upon one of these members and a cooperating zipper mechanism 26 on the other, as illustrated in Fig, 10, or other detachable securing means, such as hooks and eyes,

may be provided, all within the spirit and scope of the invention.

Because of the fact that the hood is secured to the inside of the neck portion 6, it may be swung inside the coat or outside the coat without interference by the coat collar, which is shown raised in Fig. 6. If the hood were fastened outside of the coat, the collar would interfere with this swinging movement of the hood; more than that, the fit would not be snug, but the hood would 30 be open and tend to fall down against the back of the coat when in use and, as a result of such construction, the wind and snow would enter be tween the coat and the wearer, near the neck..' All these difficulties are overcome by the present invention.v

Among other advantages of the present invention, when the hood is swung inside the coat, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, and in full lines in Fig. 7,

a double back is provided by the hood and the 40 back of the coat, which double back furnishes extra warmth for the back of the wearer. On the other hand, if desired, the coat may be used as an ordinary coat, merely by detaching the hood.

By ordinary coat is meant a coat of the illustrated type, with sleeves and a collar permanently attached tothe. neck portion 6, and folded back over the outside of the coat at the back, the sides and the front of the coat. Coats of this type are frequently employed, for example, by aviators and motorists. With the hood in place, as shown in Fig. 4, for example, with the lower margin l2 of the hood detachably fastened to the' inside of the coat at the said back, the sides and the front of the coat at the neck portion 6, a mere closing of the coat upon the body of the wearerwill automatically result in a closing of the .back, sides and front portions of the hood against the sides of the wearers face; and when the coat is buttoned at the top, the hood, by reason of its before-mentioned shape, and the fact that the said lower margin l2 extends along the back, the sidesand the front portions of the hood, and the fact that the snap buttons l upon the two front portions of the said lower margin [2 of the hood cooperate with the snap sockets 8 upon the front portion of the coat, will remain closed tight,

with the back of the hood against the back of the wearers head, the sides of the hood tight against the wearers cheeks, and the front of the lower marginal portion of the hood against the front of the wearers neck, thus preventing the entry of wind and snow. By reason of the fact that the hood is detachable, different hoods may be supplied by the dealer with the same coat, to fit snugly against the heads of different wearers, and a new hood may readily be obtained when lost. And by reason of the reversibility of the hood, it has a double life, as it may be reversed when faded or worn.

In some cases, the hood, when not in use, may be attached to a side portion 28'of the coat 4, as by 'means of buttons and button-holes 30, illustrated in Fig. 9, so as to provide an additional inside pocket.

Modifications will occur to persons skilled in the art, and all such are considered tofall within the spirit and scope of the invention,'as defined in the appended claims.

1. A coat provided with sleeves, a neck portion and a collar permanently attached-to the neck portion and folded back over the outside of the coat at the back, the sides and the front of the coat, a hood separably attached to the coat, said hood having a back, sides and front portions and hating a lower margin at the said back, sides and front'portions, fastening means on the inside of the coat near the neck portion and including the front portion of the coat, and cooperating fastening means at the said lower margin of the'hood and including the said front portions of the said lower margin of the hood, the fastening means and the cooperating fastening means beand a collar permanently attached to'the neck portion and folded back over theoutside of the coat at the back, the sides and the front of the I coat, a hood separably attached to the coat, said hood having a back, sidesand front portions and having a lower margin at the said back, sides and front. portions, snap members on the inside of the coat near the neck portion and includin the front portion of the coat, and cooperating snap members at the said lower margin of the hood and including the said front portions of the said lower margin of the hood, the snap members and the cooperating snap members being adapted to cooperate to detachably connect the said lower margin of the hood to the inside of the coat at the neck portion of the coat including the front portion of the said neck portion of the coat.
