June 29, 1954 J. WERBER GARMENT WITH HOOD AND POCKET THEREFOR Filed Aug. '7, 1952 INVENTOR. J 0 c k We r be r ATTORNEY Patented June 29, 1954 UNITED STATES ATENT OFFlCE GARMENT WITH HOQD AND POCKET THEREFOR Jack Werben NewburglnN. Application August 7, i952, Serial No. 303,025

4 Claims.

This invention is an improvedouter garment-o especially a garment for protecting not only the body, but also the head when needed.

An important object of my invention is to provide a coat or similar article of clothing with a hood attached to the back just. below the,

collar, the garment having an inside space or pocket into which the hood can be stowed in readiness to be pulled out when the. wearer desires. The hood is united to the garment along the lower edge of an opening leading to the: 1

pocket, and the upper edge or" said opening and both the inner and outer faces of the cloth of the hood adjacent said lower edge have fastening devices by which. the pocket can be closed,

when the hood is in or out. vWhen the hoo is not in use on the head, the garment has all the appearance of a coat or the like without a hood. 1

Other objects are made clear in the following description and a practical embodiment of the;-v

invention is illustrated in the drawings. The novel features are pointed out in the claims, but I do not wish to be limited to the exact construction shown herein. The design may of course be varied in minor respects without omitting or deviating from any of the essential characteristics.

On the drawings: V

Figure 1 is a vertical section of a coat, cloak, etc., according to my invention, taken through the back and showing diagrammatically the arrangement of the layers of cloth with the collar at the top and the hood inside the back.

Figure 2 is a rear elevation of the garment as it looks when spread out, showing the hood stowed away inthe pocket below the collar and the pocket closed.

Figure 3 is a similar rear elevation showing the hood pulled out and ready to be raised to cover the owners head.

Figure 4 is a section similar to Figure 1 showing the arrangement of parts with the hood pulled out.

Figure 5 is a rear elevation of the upper part of the garment, spread out showing the hood pulled out of the pocket, and the pocket not yet closed; and

Figure 6 is a perspective View of the garment with the hood out and raised to the position in which it covers all the head, except the face.

The garment is made of an outer layer I, and an inside lining 2. It has sleeves 3 and pockets 4 and suitable fastening means to hold it closed in front. The neck opening at the top has a collar 5.

Across the back just below the junction of the collar with the body of .the coat is a horizontal slit or opening 6. The hood I shaped to envelop the top and sides of the head, is made fast along its lower edge to the cloth i at the lower edge of the slit, and the space between the outer layer I and lining Z constitutes a pocket into which the hood I can be stowed. The space is large enough to allow the hood to be spread out and disposed in a flattened state, so that the back willrbe smooth and the garment can then be worn with neatness and comfort.

Along the upper edge of the slot e is a length of tape 8, one edge of which'is stitched to the cloth I, and having a row of fastening devices 9 along its free lower or opposite edge. The ends of the tape 8 are at the ends ofthe slit 6. The row of fastener devices carries a slide fastener member III, which can be slipped along the fasteners 9 but cannot be detached; because the fasteners 9 have a flattened head II at one end and a stop I2 at the other. The member l0 moves from the head II towards the stop I2 to actuate the fastener devices 9, to close the opening.

As indicated in Figure 4, the lower edge of the hood when the hood is pulled out and upward is upon the outer face of the cloth I along the lower edge of the slot 6. Figure 1 shows the arrangement when the hood is in between the layer I and lining 2. In such position of the layer and hood, a length of tape I3 is under the cloth I, that is against its inner face along the lower edge of the slot 6; and upon the inn r face of the hood along the lower edge of the opening 5 is another length of tape I4. These strips overlap each other alon one edge, with the edges of the hood I and the layer I along the lower edge of the slit 6 between them. The tapes '3 and I4 and the hood I and layer I at the back or" the garment are carefully stitched together, joining the hood to the garment and securing the strips I3 and I4 to both faces of the hood at its junc tion with the layer I. Along the opposite edges, the strips of tape I3 and I4 have rows of tener devices I5, and I 6 respectively, similar to the devices 9, the ends of the rows I5 and it being flush with the ends of the row 9 along the upper edge of the slit 6. As further shown in Figure 1, when the hood is inside of the garment, the strip I3 bears its fastener elements-I5 along the edge that is lowermost, while the elements is lie along the edge of the tape I4 that is uppermost. At one end, the rows I5 and I6 respectively have stops I! and I8 adjacent the stop I2, and the opposite ends of the rows I5 and I6 have guide studs 3 I9 and 20 respectively, adjacent the head II. The ends of these tapes I3 and I4, bearing the studs I9 and 20, have unattached portions to facilitate manipulation of the guide studs I9 and 2D.

The head II is affixed along one of its sides to the row of fastener devices 9, and projects at its opposite side, and there has an opening in one end there to receive either stud I9 or 26. When the hood is pushed through the slit 6 into the pocket or space between the layer I and lining 2 the stud 20 of the fastener devices I6 on the tape I4 is pushed through the member I and into the head II. The member In can then be actuated to connect the fasteners IS on the tape I4 to the fasteners 9 and fully close the pocket to cover and conceal the hood.

When the hood is to be taken out of the pocket and pulled over the wearers head, the member III is moved to disengage the fastener device It on the tape I4 from the fasteners 9. The slit 6 is thus opened. When the hood is extracted and arranged to cover the head, it screens the slit 6 and the slit can now be closed by inserting the stud IS on the tape I3 into the member In and the head I I. The member is now moved to cause the fastener devices 9 to engage and hold the fastener devices I5 on the outer tape I3. The member It has the usual tab 2| to be seized by the fingers when the member is to be operated.

When the hood is inside the coat the collar can be turned down to cover the tape I4 with its fastener devices I6 and the fastener devices 9. When the hood is out, the collar can be turned up to cover the tapes 8 and I3 and the fastener devices e and I5, so that these devices do not touch the wearers neck.

When the hood is inside the tape It will be connected to the tape 8, and will be above the tape I3, which is then turned inward and downward. When the hood is out and lifted, the tape I3 will be joined to the tape 8 by the elements it and 9 and will be above the tape I4, which will be folded down outside against the back of the garment.

As illustrated particularly on Figure 1, the layer I has its upper edge 23 turned over inward and the tape I3 has its plain edge inserted under this folded-over edge of the layer I. The opposite or lower edge of this tape, in the position of the parts on Figure I is the edge that has the fastener elements I5. The hood now inside the garment, extends downward, and it is laid against the edge 23. The other tape I4 is secured against the hood, with its elements I6 along the upper edge. A line of stitches 24 joins the folded edge 23 to the tape I4, and another line of stitches 25 unites the tape I4, hood I and edge 23. Two more lines of stitches 26 below the fold 23 pass through the tape I4, edge of the hood I, tape I3 and layer I together. The tapes are thus securely attached to the layer I and the hood 1.

The collar may have two layers of curved strips 22 connecting it to the lining 2 and tape 8.

Having described my invention, what I believe to be new is:
