' T0 aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, J EAN RocHET, a citizen of the Republic of France, residing at Lons-le-Saulnier, France, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Head and Nape Covering with Interchangeable Waterproof Lining, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.
This invention relates to a head-covering provided with several accessories adapted to e lodged in the interior of the head-covering itself when not in use without any change in its appearance. For instance, in the case of a cap for officers and soldiers a nape-covering and a lining may be connected to it, serving during the maneuvers the first to prevent an injurious effect of the rays of the sun and the second to establish a distinctive sign, these two parts being preferably made of a waterproof material. For caps either a nape-covering alone may be used or such a lining also which in the service of certain administrations, railways, 620., may have a distinctive character, according to the color of the lining.
In the accompanying drawings the device is shown in use on caps of different form.
Figure 1 shows the device in use with a garnished cap. Fig. 2 shows the manner in which the parts of this cap may be separated. Fig. 3 shows the inner cap, the nape-covering being represented as lowered. Fig. 4 shows the waterproof lining of the cap, which is to be used either inside of the cap to protect the wearer from rain or outside of the cap, serving as a military or other distinction. Fig. 5 shows acap in two parts according to this invention. Fig. 6shows the cap with the napecovering down.
With reference to Figs. 1 to 4 it will be seen that the cap represented therein is composed of two parts, the outer part a, made of cloth and of suitable form, being provided with the ordinary accessories for adjustment and the inner part b to be covered by the first part and provided with a sight. The parts a and I) can be secured together by means of press-buttons c, which are covered up when the assemblage is efiected.
The nape-covering is sewed at e to the part b and when not in use is folded up between the two parts a and b, so that it rests on the top of b. For use it is unfolded, as shown in Fig. 3. A press-button f, of any well-known formfor instance, such as used for glovefastenersis provided in the lower corners and permits of closing the nape-covering under the chin of the person wearing the cap. When the nape-covering is unfolded, openings 0 permit of the passage of the buttons for joining together the parts a and b.
The lining g is made of waterproof linen and having suitable shape and color and is lodged ordinarily between the parts a and I).
It may be sewed at a to the lower edge of the part a and may be folded inside of said part a or outside, so as to entirely cover the eXterior of the part a. Two press-buttons h permit of opening or closing the two edges of the front when such inside or outside folding is to be performed. A cap of this kind cannot be deformedthat is to say, it can retake its original form after a flatteningand such a cap is both supple and rigid and its interior is well protected. The rain-water traverses the outer part of the cloth, but cannot wet the inner part b, as the lining 9 will prevent this when placed inside of part a. If carried outside, the cloth of part a will also be protected against the rain. The nape-covering when folded up will offer an additional means of protection, as it is also of waterproof material.
Figs. 5 and 6 show the application of a nape-covering device to a cap of different form which is'composed of two parts a and b, fitting exactly the one into the other and being attached together by covered prcss-buttons c. The nape-covering (Z in its folded position is lodged between the two parts a and b without changing the outer appearance and when used it is folded down, as shown in Fig. 6. A lining like that for the caps shown in Figs. 1 to 4 can be used with the cap in the described manner, and in general the lining and the nape-covering may be adapted to any headwear by givingit a suitable shape, size, and fastening means.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is A head-covering composed of two parts, a and b, suitably fitted the one into the other, so that the ordinary outer appearance is not altered, one of the parts a being provided with a lining of waterproof material, and of a distinct color, adapted to be folded inside or I In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my outside of said part, the other part I) being hand in presence of two Witnesses. rovided with a nape-covering d adapted to e folded on the top of said part b, or of be- JEAN ROGHET' 5 ing lowered and clasped under the chin, sub- Witnesses:
