MAX SCHNUR, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
RAIN-PROOF GARMENT.
Application filed December 29, 1915.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, MAX SoHNUR, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the borough of the Bronx, in the city and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rain-Proof Garments, of which the following is a, specification.
My invention relates to rain proof garments, and has for one of its principal objects to provide such a garment which when not in use may be easily folded into a neat, self-contained, and comparatively small package. Y
The invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and combination of various devices, elements and parts, as shown in the accompanying drawings and hereinafter more particularly described.
In the said drawings, Figure 1 is a View of my improved rain proof garment, as it appears when not in use and folded up; Fig. 2 is an inside View of the same when unfolded and ready for use; and Figs. 3 and 4 are views of the garment as it appears in two stages of the process of folding up, to be hereinafter more particularly described.
In carrying my invention into effect in the embodiment thereof which I have selected for illustration in the accompanying drawings and description in this specification, I provide an upper or coat member 11 of suit able material. In the drawing this coat member is shown slit at the shoulders, as shown at; 12, but it will be readily understood that this is merely for convenience and clearness of representation. Permanently fastened to the inside of the coat member at 13 are supporting strips 14;, to the lower ends of which may be secured, by means of suitable fastening devices 15, (such as glove fasteners) the lower or skirt member 16 now to be described. This skirt member 16 is composed of any suitable material, and is closed by means of a series of fastening devices 17, cooperating with other devices 18, extending down the entire front of the skirt. At the inside of the upper rear portion of the skirt member I provide a piece 19, sewed to the skirt along the lines 20 and 21, thus forming with a portion of the skirt a bag open at the top and bottom. At the bottom of the member 19 I provide fastening devices 30, adapted to cooperate with other fastening devices 31 located on the inside of the skirt at one side of the Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 5, 1916.
Serial No. 69,213.
bottom of the member 19. The top of the member 19 may be provided with a handle 22, and a similar handle 27 may be provided on the skirt.
When it is desired to wear my improved garment, the upper and lower members are secured together by means of the fasteners 15, and the lower member closed by means of the fasteners 17 and 18, the two members together forming a rain-proof garment.
When it is desired to carry the garment without wearing it, the upper and lower members are separated by undoing the fasteners 15, the lower member is opened by undoing the fasteners 17 and 18, the lower member is turned inside out, and may be again closed by means of the fasteners 17 and 18.
The skirt 16 is folded along a vertical line so that the fasteners 30 and the fasteners 31 lie on opposite sides of the skirt, and coin cido with each other. The portion of the skirt which lies between the line of fastening and the side of the member 19 opposite to the fold above mentioned, is folded in between the two sides of the skirt formed by said first fold. The lower part of the skirt is then folded along lines 23 and 24c (see Fig. 3) so that it tapers to a narrow portion 25. The skirt is then folded horizontally at 26, bringing it into the position shown in Fig. 3. The portion shown in Fig. 3 as lying below the bottom of the member 19 is then folded up inside it, and occupies the position shown by the dotted lines. This last operation folds over the portion of the skirt adjacent the fasteners 31, in order that these fasteners may cooperate with the fasteners' 30. The upper or coat member may then be folded flat in any suitable manner, and placed between the folded skirt and the member 19, Fig. 4 showing the coat ll partly inside. The bottom of the member 19 may then be secured to the skirt by means of the fasteners 30 and 31, forming a bag in which the folded skirt and folded coat may be easily and conveniently carried about by means of the handles 22 and 27, which will now be adjacent each other. It is obvious that any small object, such as a purse or handkerchief, may be placed in the bag at the top.
The operation of folding up the garment having been described, the operation of unfolding will be readily understood.
Having thus described my invention what ber, of a piece secured to said skirt member, and adapted to form with a portion of said skirt member proper a bag adapted to contaln said skirt member and said coat member, a handle secured to said piece, and a handle secured to said skirt, said handles being adapted to lie adjacent each other when said skirt is contained in said bag.
In witness whereof I have hereunto signed my name this 16th day of December, 1915.
MAX SGHNUR.
