UNITED STATES DAVID HESS, 0F SNAKE RIVER, WASHINGTON.

stroRMrnooF COAT.

Application filed January 13, 1925. Serial No. 2,170.

To (all whom t may concern:

Be it known that DAVID Hnss, a citizen of the United States, residing at Snake River, in the county of Franklin and State of vWashington, has invented certain new and useful Improvements in Stormproof Coats, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to wearing apparel and particularly to new and useful improvements in storm coats, providing a novel means whereby water, wind and dust cannotpenetrate the coat.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a coat of such character, that although storm proof from the elements, it will still be ventilated and flexible throughout the various parts.

A still further object of the invention to provide a coat of the abo-ve mentioned character, which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong, durable and well adapted for the purposes for which it is designated.

Other objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals designate like parts throughout the same:

Figure l is a plan view of my coat.

Figure 2 is a section on the line 2--2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Figure l.

Figure 4 is a section on the line 4--4 of Figure l.

Figure 5 is a fragmentary view of a portion of the coat showing the overlapping parts.

Figure 6 is an enlarged view, partly broken away, to show one of the laps or waterproof elements of the coat.

In the drawings forming a part of this specication, the numeral l designates the body of my improved coat to which is secured the arms 2. The coat is provided with a collar 3 and the front edges overlap and are adapted to be buttoned together, as shown at 4. In other words, this coat in general appearance is similar to the ordinary form of overcoat.

In forming my improved coat, I provide lirst a backing cloth 5 which is formed preferably of some light weight and durable material, such as would enable air and ventilation to pass therethrough. Secured to this backing cloth by stitching or other preferred means are a plurality of strips of waterproof material designated by the numeral. These strips are secured to the backing cloth along their upper edges as shown by the numeral 7 in spaced relation and the strips are of such width as to overlap, as clearly shown in Figs. l and 5 of the drawings. rIhe lower edges of these strips are scalloped to pre sent a neat appearing and attractive design.

As will be seen in Figure 4, the overlapping strips G are so arranged with respect to one another that there is substantially a triple overlap, giving the greatest possible protection to the body of the wearer but the se curing of these strips to the backing cloth 5 1n spaced relation obviously provides a space between each strip to permit ventila tion to pass therethrough.

This idea of providing strips of spaced waterproofed material overlapping one another is carried out in both the body and the arms of the coat, thus providing a thoroughly waterproof garment. The spacing of the strips on the backing cloth provides means for the admission of air through said cloth in order to properly ventilato said coat when applied to the wearer. It is a well known fact that great difficulty has been experienced heretofore in providing a thoroughly waterproof coat which would permit of ventilation. The wearers of waterproof coats become greatly overheated and porspire to a considerable degree due to the fact that these ordinary waterproof coats are not capable of ventilation.

In order to carry out the design of the coat with the scalloped lower edges on the strips, I also provide on the collar 3 a strip 6 which does not in itself provide for any ventilation but, as stated, continues the design of the body and arms of the coat. The scalloped edges of the strips 6 give the effect of scales, such as are found on the body of a fish, and in addition to providing an effective design, these scalloped edges tend to shed the water, and elements from the coat when it is worn. The water rolling from one strip to the other will obviously be more readily cast off from the coat with these scalloped edges, than would be true if the edges were straight.

From the foregoing description of the construction of my improved coat, it will be seen that I have provided a means for waterproofing a garment and at the same time permitting of ventilation therethrough. The spacing of the overlapping strips on the backing cloth provides means whereby the air may enter under the overlapping strips and pass through the backing cloth'.

I have further provided a lining 8 for the coat which is preferably of the usual lining cloth or material, the same extending throughout the body and arms of the garment, being applied in the usual or any preferred manner.

It will be seen from the foregoing, that I have provided a simple, inexpensive and eiiicient means for carrying out the objects of the invention, and while I have particularly described the elements best adapted to perform the functions set forth, various changes in form, proportion and in the minor details of construction may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the principles of the invention.

I-Iaving thus described my invention, what I claim is A garment made up of a fabric, the fab# ric including a cloth backing, a series of stripsstitched to the backing and extending circumferentially around the body of the garment, saidstrips having straight upper longitudinal edges and scalloped lower longitudinal edges, the lines of stitching being located adjacent the upper straight edges of the strips, the lines of stitching being spaced from each other whereby the strips overlap each other, the lines of stitching and the scalloped edges extending -circumferentially around the body of the garment, an inner strip having its line of stitching lying under the intermediate portion of the next adjacent strip and between the inner points of the scalloped edge and the longitudinal straight edge thereof, and the line of stitching of the said inner strip lying under the free edge portion of an outer strip and disposed approximately parallel with the longitudinal edge thereof and yintersecting the curved line of the scalloped edge portion of the said outer strip.

In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature.

DAVID HESS.
