PA ENT" O -If 5 2,058,474 COMBINEQGARMENT AND CARRYING BAG "ioni flagtohg, Perms, Tee. I f Application May 21,1936, Serial Na. 81,163 dClaims. (o1. 2- -85) This invention relates to the classof clothing and pertains particularly to an improved and novel outer garment.
The primary object of the presentinvention 51.. is to provide a novel garment of the character of an overcoat or topcoat, designed particularly for athletes or other persons who are out of doors a great deal of the time, which has associated therewith a means whereby it may be folded up or rolled into a carrying bag forming an integral part thereof and having a closure and carrying handles attached thereto.
Another object of the invention is to provide a garment of the nature of an overcoat or topcoat having a bag body built thereinto in such a manner that the garment may be rolled up and inserted into the built-in bag and the edges of the bag closed so that the garment will be entirely protected.
A further object of the invention is to provide a coat of the above described character in which the bag, the means for closing the edges of the same and the carrying handles attached thereto, are all disposed upon the interior of the coat so that none of these parts will be in view when the coat is being worn.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an improved garment having as an integral part thereof, a pillow flap which may be turned out to lie against the back of the head of the wearer, between the head and the back of a chair, a wall or other object against which the wearer may desire to rest his head.
The invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification, with the understanding, however, that the invention is not confined to any strict conformity with the showing of the drawing but may be changed or modified so long as such changes or modifications mark no material departure from the salient features of the invention as expressed in the appended claims.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is a view in elevation of a coat constructed in accordance with the present invention and showing the bag forming means;
Figure 2 is a central longitudinal section taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1;
Figure 3 is a sectional view through the garment as folded against the bag body forming area and showing the latter partly closed;
Figure 4 is a view illustrating the character of the completed bag with the garment therein.
1 Referring now more particularly to the draw ing wherein like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views,- the numeral I indicatesgenerally a-garment in association with which the present invention is 5 shown and which may be an overcoat, topcoat or the like. In the construction of the garment, the interior surface may be'formed or treated toprovide an area 2 whichconstitutes thebag into which the garment may be rolled, this area 10 or body of material being of sufficient size between the edges to receive the coat and allow the edges to be brought together over the same. As shown, the contour of each of the two edges of the body area 2 is substantially arcuate with the 15 concave side of the arc of one edge directed toward the concave side of the arc of the other edge, and the ends of these two arcuate edges meet at substantially the transverse center of the body 2, at the points 3. Each of these arcuate edges is bordered throughout with one of the two interlocking series of elements forming the wellknown rapidly joined fastener known in commerce as a zipper fastener, each of these fastener portions being indicated by the numeral 4 and each comprising a tape body 4 and a series of metallic elements 4 which are interlocked with those of the other series in the well known manner.
Securedto the body area 2 of the bag adjacent 30 each edge and at a point substantially midway between the ends of each tape body 4, is a handle loop 5 which is brought into position beside the opposite loop when the coat is folded and put into the bag from the side thereof opposite that side 3 which is seen when looking toward the interior of the coat. When the coat is folded in this manner and put into the bag as described, the two edges of the bag as defined by the tapes and series of elements carried thereby will come into side by 40 side relation and the usual fastening element employed for coupling the metallic elements may be actuated to secure these edges together, thus giving to the folded up coat the appearance of a small satchel, as illustrated in Figure 4.
Adjacent the neck of the coat, there is secured to' the inside thereof one end of an elongated pillow flap which is indicated generally by the numeral 6. This pillow flap hangs down in the coat from the neckband, as illustrated, and is adapted 50 to be swung upwardly and outwardly so that it may be placed against the back of the head of the wearer of the coat to provide a cushion between the head and a supporting body such as the back of a chair or the like. 55
From the foregoing, it will be readily apparent that an article of clothing of the character herein described will be of great service to athletes or other persons who are out of doors a great deal of the time and are frequently required to have an extra garment or wrap with them but find it inconvenient to carry such a wrap over the arm in the conventional manner.
It will also be obvious that a garment constructed in accordance with the present invention when folded up into the integral bag forming a part thereof, can be thrown about without becoming soiled and can also be more conveniently carried than if it were opened out.
What is claimed is: I
1. In a garment, means upon one side thereof defining in outline the two edges of a'bag mouth,
the area between said means forming the bag' body, and means whereby the said outlining means may be joined together after the part of the body lying outside the first means has been folded into the said area upon the opposite side of the garment from the first mentioned means.
2. In a garment, a pair of long units secured to 1 one side of the body and constituting the two connectible parts of a fastener similar to the type nectible only when the garment is folded in a manner to arrange the portions thereof lying outside the area between the units, in the area between the units and against the side opposite from the units.
3. In a garment having a back, a series of units arranged in an arcuate row across one face of the back, a series of means adapted to form a jointed relation with said units and forming a row in an arc in opposed relation to the arc of the first row, the ends of one of said arcuate rows being in convergent relation with the ends of the other whereby a relatively large area of the garment back is outlined, and a handle element in the said area.
4. In a garment, a pair of long units secured to one side of the body and constituting the two connectible parts of a fastener similar to the type known as a zipper fastener, the said units each being arranged substantially in an arc, the ends of the arcs being together, the units being connectible only when the garment is folded in a manner to arrange the portions thereof lying outside the area between the units, in the area between the units and against the side opposite from the units, and a pair of handle loops each secured in the said area adjacent to one of said units and substantially midway between the ends of the same.
