March 16, 1954 F. ALBER SKATE AND SHOE BAG Filed Aug. 24, 1950 Patented Mar. 16, .1954
UNITED STATES ATENT OFFICE 3 Claims. 1
The present invention relates to shoe bags and more particularly to bags for receiving ice skates, and roller skates, with or without the shoes attached.
It is the general object of the invention to provide an improved bag of the type indicated in which ice skates, roller skates, with or without the attached shoes, or even shoes alone, can be conveniently transported between the home and the skating rink, and particularly in a manner which will avoid soiling of the clothing.
It is a further object of the invention to provide an improved skate and shoe bag wherewith a pair of skates or shoes can be conveniently carried from the shoulder while leaving both hands free, so that the entire bag can be carried even while one is skating, should one be unable or find it undesirable to leave the empty bag at any place, such bag in no way interfering with the movements of the arms or of the body of the skater.
It is also an object of the invention to provide a bag which is so constructed that it can be slung over the shoulder, 01' over the forearm and at the tim provided with a compartment for receiving w and storing other articles which may be of use to the wearer, such as a scarf, purse and the like.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear as the more detailed description of the invention proceeds.
The accompanying drawing illustrates, by way of example, a satisfactory certain embodiment of the invention. In said drawing,
Fig. 1 is a top view of the bag in extended condition;
Fig. 2 is an end view of the ba Fig. 3 is a section along the line 3-3 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 4 shows the bag in transport position, slung over the shoulder of the wearer; and
Fig. 5 shows the bag secured about the body of the wearer.
The transportation of ice and roller skates to and from the rink causes considerable inconvenience to the skater because of the rather large size of the skates, especially when the shoes are permanently attached thereto, and also because of their weight and usually soiled condition, especially after use at the rink. When they are brought to the rink in the usual piece of hand luggage, the problem arises of checking the piece of luggage with an attendant at the rink and.
when no such attendant is available, it must be left exposed to pilfering and stealing while the wearer is skating.
In accordance with the present invention. there is provided a bag of flat, U-shaped form which is provided with separate compartments for the skates and with a relatively narrow connecting portion which can rest on the shoulder when the bag is slung thereover, so that one skate compartment lies along the front and the other across the back of the wearer, or the bag can be slung over the forearm. When the skatesare in use, the bag can be worn in the same position over the shoulder as when transporting the skates, the bag then being suitably attached in any desired manner about the body of the wearer and in no way hindering the movements of the skater.
Referring now to the drawings, it will be seen that the bag is in the form of a shallow U-shaped structure It having a narrow intermediate section I i adapted to rest upon the shoulder, as indicated in Fig. 4, or over the forearm, and provided with end compartments [2 and I3 of approximately right triangular shape and adapted to house the skates, with or without attached shoes 14. As shown in Fig. 4, when the skates are carried from the shoulder, one skate compartment will be located in front, and the other at the back of the wearer, approximately at the level of the diaphragm or, if desired, of the waist.
The bag i0 is preferably composed of pliable, preferably moisture-proof material, such as rubberized or other water-proofed fabric, or of leather or plastic sheeting, which may have an ornamental outer surface. The casing may be provided with an inner lining lOa of moistureproof material, and in such case the outer casing may or may not itself be moisture-proof, although this is generally desirable. The provision of the moisture-proof lining increases the life of the bag and makes it convenient to Wash the interior of the bag with a damp cloth or the like.
The bag is preferably formed of two sections of material 10b and IE0 which have a straight, longitudinal edge Hid, and a curved, inner edge Ille. The sections I91) and [0c are permanently connected, as by stitching, along the edges [0e and along the opposite end edges, preferably with the interposition of a filler or gusset l0).
A suitable opening or openings are provided, preferably along the straight, longitudinal edge ltd of the bag and also closure means therefor. The closure means may be of any known or suitable type, and in the embodiment illustrated is in the form of two sets of hookless fasteners IS with operating slides [5a.
I prefer also to provide one or more pockets IS with flaps ll, stitched to the outer surface of the bag for receiving small tools or equipment which the skater usually needs, such as a small sharpening stone, a wrench, extra shoe laces, etc.
The bag is preferably provided also with transverse seams I8 spaced a suitable distance from the transverse center thereof to provide a compartment 19 which is sealed from the shoe compartments and is adapted to receive a scarf, purse or other personal articles usually carried by a skater. If desired," the compartment- [9 can be closed by the same, single or pair of slide'fa's'ten' ers that close the shoe compartments; or separate fastening means can be provided for the three compartments.
As alread indicated, the intermediate' or narrow portion of the bag is of such length'thatthe shoe compartment extend approximately across the diaphragm or waistline of thewearer; so' that the skate-filled bag can be worn with a minimumof discomfort. Because of its completely fiat con dition, after the removalof the skates, the bag can be worn even while skating without any dis comfort or impediment and to thisend, the toe portions of the bag can'be provided with suitable loops, snap fasteners or other attaching means for receiving or securing a belt, ribbon'or' cord 29 which passes around the body of the wearer, as shown in Fig. 5. The member 29 can be permanently secured to one toe portion and separately secured to the other toe portion, as by snap fastener elements 23. These belts or ribbons-can be of decorative 'natureand thus add to the external appearance of the bag as a whole;
Each section lilb and is may be made of one piece or, as illustrated, of two pieces which are limited by stitching by way of the lapping portions 2 I and 22.
From the foregoing; it will be seen that I have provided an extremely'convenient bag for ice and rollerskates and shoes by which these articles can be carried with a'minimum of impediment, the bag being capable 'oi being worn over the shoulder in the empty condition when it can continue to serve the functions of a handbag without occupying the hands of thewe'arer and without interfering with the wear'ers' skating activities.
