GLQVE FOR ARCHERS' J ames C'. Ramsey, Lincoln, N. Mex.

Application September 8, 1949, Serial No. 114,483

3 Claims. 1

This invention relates to gloves for archers.

An object of this invention is to provide an improved glove for archers which will keep either or both hands warm so that the archer may be able to drawv and release, his arrows in cold weather.

Another object of this invention is to provide means for heating the, finger cots of a skeleton arrow release glove.

Another object of this invention is to providemeans for heating the finger cots of a skeleton bow hand glove.

A further object of this invention is to provide in combination a glove having several of the fingers cut off near the tip ends, a skeleton glove having, finger cots, with heating means therefor, and releasable fastening means for securing the finger acts to the cut off fingers of the glove.

A furtherobjeetof this invention is to provide a glove for the bow hand of an archer, wherein the back side of the glove is formed with a pocket within which a heating element is adapted to be removably mounted.

With the above andother objects in view, my invention consists inthe arrangement, combination and details of construction disclosedin the drawings and specification; and then more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

Inthe drawings;

Figure 1 is a perspective view from the front of an archers glove, constructed according to an embodiment of this invention,

Figure 2 is a perspective view from the rear of the glove,

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 33 of Figure 2,

Figure 4 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 2,

Figure 5 is a detail rear elevation of a modified form of this invention,

Figure 6 is a front elevation of the glove shown in Figure 5, with the finger cots removed,

Figure 7 is a rear elevation of another modification of this invention,

Figure 8 is a detail side elevation of the glove shown in Figure '7,

Figure 9 is a perspective view from the rear, of another modification of this invention,

Figure 10 is a perspective view from the front of the glove shown in Figure 9,

Figure 11 is a diagrammatic view showing the electric circuits embodied in this invention.

Referring to the drawings and first to Figures 1 to 4 inclusive, the numeral I5 designates generally a skeleton glove structure embodying a palm strap l6 and a back strap or body IT. A wrist band [8 is formed integral with the back member l1 and, includes complementary snap fasteners I 9.

The skeleton glove structure l5 includes finger cots 20 connected with the back member IT by narrow straps 21. In the present instance there are only three of these finger cots 28' engaging about the forefinger, the middle finger, and the third finger. The finger cot 20 has secured to the inner or forward side thereof one part 22' of a snap fastener element, the purpose for which will be hereinafter described.

A pocket is formed about the back'member. l1 and the palm member l5 by means of a wall 23, and a heating element. is disposed within the pocket, being insulated therefrom by insulating means 25. A pocket 26 is formed on the back side of each finger cot 20, and the pocket 26 is connected to pocket 23 by means of a narrow pocket or channel 21. A heating element 28is,

disposed, within the pocket 26, being insulated. by insulating means 29 and is electrically connected with the. heating element24' by conductors 30.

A switch 3| is interposedin the heating element 24' and is connected to a connector 32 which is adapted to be connectedto a source of electric current supply by means of a connector 33 which is connected with a 2-wire conductor 34. The conductor 34 is connected to the opposite sides of a battery or source of electric current supply 35.

The glove structure [5 is designed for use in engaging the string or thong 36 of a bow and it will be understood that this glove may be either right or left hand, depending on the normal use of the wearer.

Referring now to Figures 5 and 6, there is disclosed a modified form of glove structure 3! wherein the first three fingers 38 are cut off and have front and back snap fasteners 39 and 40 secured thereto. Finger cots 4| may be secured to the snap fasteners 39 and 40, being formed as part of a conventional skeleton glove structure for use in archery. The glove 31 has formed on the back side thereof a pocket 42 having an opening 43 which may be closed by interengageable fastening elements 44. The pocket 42 is adapted to receive a heating element of suitable construction for heating the back of the hand.

Referring now to Figures 7 and 8, there is disclosed another glove 45 which is of conventional construction, having closed fingers 46. The back side of the glove 45 has secured thereto a pocket member 41 formed with a slit or opening 48 which may be closed by means of interengageable fastening members 49. The pocket member 41 is adapted to receive a suitable heating element such as a chemical heating element or the like, for heating the back side of the glove. In the present instance the forefinger 50 is provided with a relatively smooth intermediate zone within which zone the shaft of the arrow is adapted to engage so that the forefinger 50 will not offer any undue frictional resistance to the sliding movement of the arrow shaft thereover.

Referring now to Figures 9 and 10, there is disclosed another form of skeleton glove structure generally designated as 52. Theglove structure 52 includes a back member 53 formed with a wrist band 54 having fastening elements 55. A plurality of finger cots 56 are connected with the back 53 by means of narrow extension bands 51 and the cots 56 are closed at their forward.

ends.

The finger cots 56 also include a thumb cot 58 which is also closed at its forward end and connected with the back 53 by means of a narrow connecting band 59. The finger cots 56 have secured to the back side thereof pockets 50 within which heating elements 61 are secured, and a heating element 62 is mounted in a pocket 63 formed on the back member 53.

A switch 54 is interposed between one end of the heating element 62 and a connector 55 and a complementary connector 85 is carried by one end of a double cord or conductor 61 and is engageable with the connector 65. The thumb cot 58 is also formed with a pocket 68 on the back side thereof, which is connected with the heating elements Bi and 62. As shown in Figure 10, the conductor 51 extends over the wrist band 54 and is detachably secured thereto by means of a strap 69 having a snap fastener secured thereto, engageable by a complementary fastener which is carried by the band 54.

With a glove structure as hereinbefore described, the draw string hand of the archer will be kept warm during cold weather so that the archer will be able to more accurately aim the arrow and release the same, and if desired the bow hand which in a right hand person will be the left hand, may also have a heating element mounted on a glove which may be either a skeleton or a full glove.

I do not mean to confine myself to the exact details of construction herein disclosed, but claim all variations falling within the purview of the appended claims.

What I claim is:

1. An archers glove comprising a skeleton glove including a back member, a palm member, a wrist band at the rear of said back member, finger cots forwardly of said back member, pockets disposed on the rear sides of said cots, straps connecting said cots with said back member, heating elements carried by said back and engaging in said pockets of said cots and a switch carried by said palm member.

2. An archers glove comprising a skeleton glove including a back member, a wrist band at the rear of said back member, finger cots forwardly of said back member, pockets disposed on the rear sides of said cots, straps connecting said cots with said back member, heating elements carried by said back member and engaging in said pockets of said cots, and a switch carried by said glove.

3. An archers glove comprising a skeleton glove including a back member, a wrist band at the rear of said back member, finger cots forwardly of said back member, a thumb cot, pockets disposed on the rear sides of said cots, straps connecting said cots with said back member, heating elements carried by said back member and engaging in said pockets of said cots, and a switch carried by said back member.
