2 Claims. (Cl. 190-42) The present invention relates to a combination beach bag and beach mat and refers more Darticularly to a bag comprising separate compartments, one'of which is adapted to receive a beach mat which is preferably firmly attached to the bag inside its own compartment so that the compartment may be closed with the mat inside. The mat may be extended exteriorly of the compartment when the latter is open and the user may lie upon the mat and fall asleep without fear of losing the bag.

An object of the present invention is to provide a bag combined with a mat in an inconspicuous manner, the combined article resembling a bag alone except upon close inspection.

A further object is the provision of such an article in which the operation of the bag portion is identical with the operation of an ordinary beach bag.

A further object is the provision of an article of the class described which shall be cheap to manufacture.

Mat 25 can be folded as in Fig. 2 so as tolie entirely within mat compartment l2 and may be enclosed therein by operation of zipper closure 22. As seen from Fig. 2, folded mat 25 is lying flat and beneath bag compartment II. This contributes to the normal appearance of bag Ill, the location and A position of mat 25 being as inconspicuous as pos- 2o dimension may be parallel to or perpendicular to For further comprehension of the invention,

and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a combination bag embodying the present invention.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged transverse vertical sectional view taken on the line 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a plan view of the article showing the mat in extended position.

Fig. 4 is an enlarged transverse vertical sectional View taken on the line 44 of Fig. 3.

The combination beach bag and beach mat, according to the present invention, includes a bag body l0 having a bag compartment ll superimposed on a mat compartment I2, the two being separated by a partition l3 constituting the floor of the bag compartment.

are attached carrying straps [6. A member I! An advantage of the construction disclosed herein is that a person lying on the mat may fall asleep without fear of having the bag stolen or removed by mischievous or other unauthorized parties.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
