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.
A substantially rectangular-shaped frame 2I is built into the enclosure 9 just above the nose and mouth frame I1 and this frame is intended to pass in front of both eyes of the wearer and to have a pane 22 of celluloid or some other suitable transparent material installedtherein and held by suitable clips 23. Suitable attaching means 24 is provided between the edge portion of the enclosure 9 and the rib 25 of the frame IT for holding the window frame 2I in position.
A closure is provided for the front portion of the frame I! and this consists of the frame 26 of substantially the same conformation as the frame l1 and this has the mesh filler 21. The
