" GLOVE Filed Dec. 12, 1936 INVENTOR Jay/v Mukxwy I 2 an opening extending transversely of the palm of the glove adjacent the base of the fingers Patented Dec. 28, 1931 GLOVE John M. Murray, New York, N. Y. Application December 12,1936, Serial N .'1'15,4so
a V 1 Glsim. (CL2-1li0) This invention is directed to an improvement in gloves, and more specifically is directed to the provision of a glove the palm of which isequipped with a pocketfor the reception of pa- 5 per money, change, keys and similar smallarti- .cles. a
' One ofthe objects of my invention is the provision of a pocket in the palm of the glove, the pocketopening and the closure therefor being so positioned that easyand ready access is had to the pocket with the hand held in natural position at the waist line, the natural curving of the fingers with the hand in such position eliminating the likelihood of the contents of the pocket falling out 01' the hand when the pocket is pened. h
A further-object of my invention is theprovision of-a glove the palm of which is equipped with a pocket, access to which is had through this positioning ofthe pocket opening together with the natural concavity oi the hand and slight closing of the hand promoting opening or the pocket with ease and facility. v
' A till further object of my invention is the provision of a' glove the palm "of which is equipped with a pocket extending from the base o! the fingers toward the wrist, the opening for the pocket being located adjacent the fingers, so that with the hand elevated, as in steering a motor car, iorexample, the contents of the pocket will naturally fall away from the mouth of the pocket toward the bottom thereof which lies in the palmot the hand of the wearer;
The pocket mouth in my improved construction is closed with some simple device-suchasinterlocking fingers closed by a slide and known commercially under the name Talon or Zipwhich are independentoi the glove fastener, makingit unnecessary .to uniastenthe a glove in order to obtain access to the pocket.
In the accompanying drawing:
Fig. 1 is a view of the mini side of a glove con- 5 structed in accordance with my invention;
Fig. 2 .is a similar view. showing the pocket with the closure device-in open position: and Fig. .8 is a view onthe line 3-3 ofl'lg. 2..

The slit 8 is equipped with a closure member 10 I which may take the form of engageable hooks III adapted to engage each other to hold the slit closed when the control slide II is moved in one direction, and to open'the slit. when the slide is moved in theopposite direction. Such, fastening devices are commercially known as Zipper" or Talon fasteners. Y w .Itwill be seen from the foregoing that-my invention provides a pocket glove possessing many 1 meritorious features as compared with pocket gloves heretofore suggested. It will be apparent that by positioning the pocket opening or slit 8 at the base of the fingers. with the slit extending transversely of the glove, easy and natural access is had to the pocket, this feature too in--v suring that'whe'n the pocket is opened. the contents of the pocket will not fall out of the hand.
Another advantageous feature or my improved glove will now be apparent. in that the pocket opening is so located with respect to the pocket 30 and with respect to.the palm oithe glove that v with the glove elevated as in steering a motor car, for example, the pocket extends downward ly, that is tosay, the bottom of the pocket is below the opening so that the contents of the glove will be in the pocket in the palm of the hand.
