United States Patent (3 2,712,337 BAG FOR CARRYING SHOE ICE SKATES Paul E. Tremblay, East Lynn, Mass.

Continuation of application Serial No. 198,361, Novem ber 30, 1950. This application October 2, 1953, Serial No. 383,763

3 Claims. c1. 1s0 -s2 This invention relates to a bag for holding and carrying shoes, and more particularly to a bag for carrying a pair of shoe-type ice skates, and is a continuation of my coapending application, Serial No. 198,361, filed November 30, 1950, now abandoned.

The object of the invention is to provide a bag for carrying a pair of shoe-type ice skates, the bag including a partition for maintaining the shoe ice skates immobile in the bag and reinforcing the bag to ensure the retention of its shape during use.

highly attractive and adjustable as desired, there being a flap which can be locked in closed position when the bag A further object of the invention is to provide a carrying bag which is extremely simple and inexpensive to manufacture.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawings, showing an illustrative embodiment of the invention and forming a part of this application and in which like numerals are used to designate like parts throughout the same:

Fig. l is a front elevational view of the bag of the present invention;

Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 22 of Fig. 3;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 33 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken on the line 44 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 5 is a detail sectional view showing the structure of the cover for flap bend;

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary detail transverse sectional view of the upper portion of the bag, with the flap or cover in open position;

Fig. 7 is a sectional view taken on the line 7-7 of Fig.1,

Fig. 8 is a sectional view taken on the line 8-8 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 9 is a plan view of the blank for making a body member;

Fig. 10 is a plan view of the blank for making the front wall; and

Fig. 11 is a plan view of the blank for making the sides and bottom of the bag.

Referring in detail to the drawings, the numeral designates the carrying bag of the present invention, which may be fabricated of any suitable material. bag 20 includes a body member which is indicated generally by the numeral 21, and the body member 21 is shaped to define a back wall i9, and a strip 22 which is hingedly connected to the upper edge of the back wall 19. The body member 21 is further shaped to define a flap or cover 23. The body member 21 is scored, as at 24 (see Figs. 3 and 5), whereby the strip 22 will be able to freely pivot or swing relative to the back wall 19. Also ice the body member 21 is scored or cut away, as at 25 (see Figs. 3 and 6), whereby the flap 23 can swing or pivot relative to the connecting strip 22. The body member 21 may be made of fiberboard if desired.

The bag of the present invention further includes a front wall 26 which is arranged in spaced parallel relation in any suitable manner is a U-shaped web 27. The web 27 is shaped to define a bottom 28, and sides 29 and 30.

Arranged on the inside of the bag is an inner liner 31 hich may be fabricated of any suitable material, such as plastic or leather. An outer lining 32 is arranged exteriorly of the bag, and the head 33 is secured to or formed integrally with the outer lining 32. A suitable lacing 34 is arranged in engagement with the bead 33 (see Figs. 2 and 8), and the lacing 34 provides a highly decorative or attractive appearance for the bag.

Such a bag as has been described is adapted to receive a pair of shoe skates S and S with their blades outermost and their uppers partly overlapped. in the illustrative embodiment of the invention, the width of the bag is approximately equal to the maximum height of the shoe skates, its thickness is such that the skates may be stored therein as above indicated, and its depth is at least equal to the length of the blades. The bag is preferably made of thin fiberboard with leather or plastic securedthereto by any suitable binder thus to provide a wall structure suificiently stiff to enable a predetermined shape of bag to be established.

In order to position the skateswith their blades in engagement with the side walls of the bag and to prevent movement of the skates therein, a partition 35 is located in the lower part of the bag which is secured at least to its front and back walls and includes oppositely disposed of the bag into a pair of compartments, one'for each skate.

approximates the contour of the upper surfaces of each shoe substantially from its instep to the toe thereof. The partition 35 may conveniently be made of wood and secured as by cement or glue to the bag Walls.

The bag of the present invention is provided with adjustable straps, whereby the bag can either be carried over the Wearers shoulder or can be carried by hand. Thus, tabs 36 are secured to each side 29 and 30 of the bag by the suitable lines of stitching 37, and a ring 38 is connected to each of the tabs 36. A snap book 39 is arranged in engagement with each of the rings 38, and a strap 40 is connected to each of the snap hooks 39. The other end of each of the straps 40 carries a ring 41, and it will be seen that the strap 40 can be either arranged as shown in Fig. 2, or as shown in Fig. 1.

A locking means is provided for preventing accidental opening of the flap 23. This means comprises a strap 42 which has one end secured, as by cement or glue, to

when the flap 23 is in its closed position, as shown in Fig. l. The loop 44 is secured to the front wall 26 of the bag, and the loop 44 projects suificiently far through the slot 43, so that the strap 42 can be inserted through the loop 44 to prevent accidental opening of the flap.

From the foregoing it is apparent that a bag has been provided which is especially suitable for carrying a pair of shoe-type ice skates S and S. The shoe-type ice skates S and S can be positioned as shown in Figs. 2, 3, and 4, whereby the partition 35 will prevent the shoe ice skates S and S from shifting while they are positioned in the bag. Also, the strap 42 can be inserted through the loop 44, whereby accidental opening of the flap 23 will be prevented. Further, the straps 40 can be adjusted so that the bag can either be carried by hand or can be suspended from the users shoulder.

It will be apparent that the invention provides attractive bags enabling shoe skates to be conveniently carried or stored and affording protection against their blades becoming accidentally dulled and their uppers damaged while contained therein.

What I therefore claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A carrying bag for shoe skates, said bag being dimensioned to accommodate shoe skates with their blades outermost and substantially parallel and with their uppers partly overlapped, said bag being open at one end and including a cover to close said open end, relatively stiit side, end, and bottom walls disposed relative to each other to establish a predetermined shape for said bag, and a centrally located upwardly tapered partition at the lower end of said bag, the opposite faces of said partition being convexedly contoured and engageable by subf,

stantial portions of the fore parts of the shoe skates, said partition being secured to the bottom, front and back walls of said bag and reinforcing a substantial part of said bag thus to ensure retention of its shape.

2. A carrying bag for shoe ice skates, said bag being I open at one end and including a cover to close said open end, relatively stifi front, back, end and bottom walls disposed relative to each other to establish a bag of predetermined shape whose inside length is equal to the length of the skate runners, whose inside width is equal to the maximum height of said shoe skates and whose thickness is such that both shoe skates may be stored therein when the blades are disposed outwardly and with tie shoe uppers partly overlapped, and a centrally disposed upwardly tapered partition in the lower part of said bag reinforcing the front and back walls and being convexedly contoured and engageable by portions of the fore parts of the shoe skate uppers to maintain their runners in contact with said end walls.

3. A carrying bag for shoe ice skates, said bag being open at one end and including a cover to close said open end, relatively stiff front, back, end and bottom walls determined shape whose inside length is equal to the iength of the skate runners, whose inside width is equal to the maximum height of said shoe skates and whose thickness is such that both shoe skates may be stored therein when the blades are disposed outwardly and with the shoe uppers partly overlapped, and a centrally dis posed partition in the lower part of said bag reinforcing the front and back walls, said partition engageable by portions of the fore parts of the shoe skate uppers to maintain their runners in contact with said end walls.
