Patented Dec. 9, 1952 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SPORTSMANS GARMENT Lamb Buck, Apalachicola, Fla. Application June 25, 1951, Serial No. 233,364 I v 7 (Ci. 2-414) g 2 Claims.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements and structural refinements in sports mans garments, and the principal object of the invention is to provide a garment of the character herein described which may be conveniently and effectively employed by hunters, fishermen, et cetera, for the purpose of protecting and saving ammunition, game, smoking material, first aid kits, or the like from harmful effects of moisture.
The above object is achieved by the provision of a garment consisting of an outer jacket and a harness which is disposed within and separably attached to the jacket, the harness carrying a pair of depending pockets which are located at the opposite sides of the bodyacross the hips, these pockets as well as other pockets which are located on the jacket itself, being of a moisture proof construction so that the contents thereof cannot be damaged by becoming wet.
An important feature of the invention resides in its adjustability and another feature lies in the separability of the jacket and harness so that the jacket may be removed, if so desired, and the harness worn under a conventional coat or jacket.
Some of the advantages of the invention lie in its simplicity of construction, in its efficient and dependable operation, in its durability, and in its adaptability to economical manufacture.
With the above more important objects and features in view and such other objects and features as may become apparent as this specification proceeds, the invention consists essentially of the arrangement and construction of parts as illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure 1 is a rear perspective view of the invention in use;
Figure 2 is a front perspective view of the jacket per se, the same being illustrated in an open position;
Figure 3 is a front perspective view of the harness per se;
Fig. 4 is an inside developed plan view of the rear section and the left front section of the jacket;
Figure 5 is an outside developed plan view of the jacket sections shown in Figure 4, and
Figure 6 is a vertical sectional detail, taken substantially in the plane of the line 6--6 in Figure 5 and illustrating the rear pocket construction.
Like characters of reference are employed to designate like parts in the specification and throughout the several views.
Referring now to the accompanying drawings in detail, the general reference character it designates a sportsmans garment constructed in accordance with the invention, the garment It consisting of two main units, namely, an outer jacket ['2 and a harness l4.
The harness l4 will first be described, the same comprising a pair of inverted, substantially U- shaped shoulder straps I6 which are provided at the top thereof with tabs i8 carrying pairs of snap fastener elements 20, while the lower ends of the straps I6 carry a pair of depending pockets 22 which are rigidly secured to the straps I6 by suitable fasteners 24 (see Figure 3). The pockets 22 have down turned flaps or covers 26 provided with fastener means 28 so that the contents of the pockets are protected from harmful effects of moisture.
The shoulder straps l6 are also provided adjacent the upper ends or edges of the pockets 22 with snap fastener elements 30 and transverse webbing 32, 34, 36 extends between the shoulder straps I6 around the chest and back of the user, as will be clearly apparent. The webbing 32, 34, 36, is adjustable by means of conventional loops 38 and buckles 40, so that the harness l4 may accommodate wearers of different sizes.
The jacket 12 comprises a rear section 42 and a pair of front sections 44, 4B which have the opposite edges thereof spaced from the side edges of the rear section 42 but are connected thereto adjacent the bottom thereof with transverse bands 48 having adjusting means 50 of a conventional nature.
The bands 48 are separably connected by snap fasteners 52 to the front sections 44, 46, so that separation of the front and rear sections of the jacket is possible, when so desired.
The back section 42 is also provided at the shoulder portions thereof with a pair of forwardly projecting tabs 54 having snap fastener elements 58 separately connected to snap fastener elements 58 at the shoulder portions of the front sections 44, 46 as is clearly shown in Figures 2, 4 and 5. I
The back section 42 is also equipped with a hanger loop 60, whereby the entire garment may be suspended from a hook.
Means for separably connecting the harness l4 to the outer jacket [2 comprise pairs of snap fastener elements 62 which are provided at the upper edges of the jacket sections 42, 44, 46 adjacent the tabs 54 and which are engageable with the aforementioned snap fastener elements 20 on the harness. Moreover, the front and back sections of the jacket are provided with additional snap fastener elements 64 which are separably engageable with the afore-mentioned snap fastener elements 30 on the harness, as is clearly shown in Figures 2 and 3.
The front sections 4 4-6 of the jacket are adapted to be separably connected together at the front of the garment by suitable means such as a slide fastener 66 and suitable pockets 68, having lateral openings at their edges 10, are provided on the front sections 46, 46 as shown. The entrance openings of the pockets are securable by suitable snap fasteners 12 and an inside pocket 14 may be provided on each of the jacket front sections 44, 46, if so desired.
Finally, a substantially large pocket 18 is provided on the rear surface of the rear section 42, this pocket having lateral entrance openings 80, as will be clearly apparent.
It is believed that the advantages and use of the invention will be readily understood from the foregoing disclosure and accordingly, further description thereof at this point is deemed unnecessary.
While in the foregoin there has been shown and described the preferred embodiment of this invention, it is to be understood that minor changes in the details of construction and arrangement of parts may be resorted to Without departing from the spirit and scope of the in vention as claimed.
Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
1. A sportsmans garment comprising an outer jacket including a back section and a pair of front sections spaced from the back section at the sides of the garment, means for separably connecting the front and back sections at the shoulders of the garment, separable connecting band-s extending transversely of the spaces between the front and back sections at the sides, and a harness disposed under said jacket and including a pair of shoulder engaging straps, transverse webbing extending between said straps at the front and back, means at the top of said straps for separably connecting the same to said jacket, a pair of pockets depending from said straps at the sides of the garment, said pockets being disposed in the spaces between the front and back sections of said jacket, and means for separably attaching the front and rear sections of said jacket to said harness at points adjacent upper edges of said pockets.
2. The device as defined in claim 1, wherein said last mentioned means comprise fastener elements provided on side edge portions of the front and rear sections of said jacket, and coacting fasteners provided on said straps adjacent the upper edges of said pockets.
