g which depends from the lower. edge of the enclosure 9. The edge portions of the cape and enclosure 9 are normally closed by a second multiple fastener I4. i I

The cape l3 has arm openings I5 and these openings are bridged by straps I6 which can extend under the arm-pits as disclosed in Figure 2' to prevent rising of the apron structure I3.

The portion of the enclosure 9 at the front thereof has an opening which is afforded for the purpose of permitting smoking, eating, etc. In-

side of this opening and secured to the edge portion of the enclosure 9 is the nose and mouth frame denoted by numeral IT. This frame I! as shown in Figure 6 has the upper constricted portion [8 in which is a tapered recession I9 to accommodate the upper portion of the nose.

The lower portion has the indentation 29 and this is relatively broad compared with the recession I9 so as to accommodate the chin por-.-

tion of the wearer.
