Apn'fifl 1929. F. H. MARTIN STOCKING PROTECTOR Filed July 26, 1928 MMMZMAA Patented Apr 9, i929 FBEDEEICK'H." mantra, or AKRON, omo, assremon are THE B. a; eoonnrcn com- I ran; or new YOBK,N. 'Y., a conroaa'r on or mzw. Yoax.

This invention relates to, stocking pro tectors or leggings and its chief ob ects are to provide neatnessof appearance ease of application and removal; a snug fitfor legs of different sizes; and lightness in con unction with watcr-impermeability. f

Of the accompanying drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a legging or stocking protector embodying my invention in its preferred form. 1

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the same in place on the leg of a wearer.

Referring to the drawings, the stocking protector comprises a leg-enclosing member or structure 10 of highly flexible and elastic water'proofed material such as rubberlzed stockinet, whichpreferably is rubberized on the outer face only so that the surface which is exposed to splashes of mud and water w ll be easily cleaned while the inner surface 1s of .a texture more suitable for contact with the stocking of the wearer. p p

The protector ifspreferably adapted to be opened throughout its length at the front, for

ease of application and removal, andits vertical margins defining the front opening are provided with suitable fastening means, preferably the respective series of jaw members.

slide-fastener overshoe 14 as shown, the pro-' tector forming a neat junction therewith, excluding soot or other soiling material from the overshoe and thus protecting the ankle portion as well as the leg portion of the stockin f or ornamentation and for neatness of appearance, and especially for holding the PM tector securely .in place during use although permitting it readily to be removed,* bands 15, 16 of longitudinally-elastic webbin or the like are mounted in the manner of cu s upon the upper and lower ends respectively of the leg-enclosing member 10, in position to conceal the upper and lower ends of the slide- 1928'. Serial no. 295,418.

fastener preferably by means of stitching of a character such as to permit elongation and contraction of the webbing and the margin of the member 10 to which it is attached.

The type of stitching here shown, which is 7 well known in other associations as Merrow stitching, has been found to be particularly serviceable in providing a strong and at the Y same time elastic seam.-

, Each of the-bands of webbing, 15, 16, is

provided with mating snap-fastener members, 17, 18, for joining its ends to secure the protector in place with the bands under suitable tension, and the 'stitching preferably is applied to the band only from a position a little short of each end portion of the band, so that the end portions of the bands may beeasily manipulated for joining and diSjOiIl',

ing the snap-fasteners and so 'thatthe slide 13 of the slide-fastener may readily be concealed under the band at the top of its range of movement. The stitching preferably is continued about the free ends of the elastic webbing to prevent fraying and for neatness- In the process of manufacture the webbing may be held in a slightly "stretched condition while it is being sewed to the leg-enclosing member 10, so that the latter will be slightly puckered by the webbing when the latter is released, the resulting structure being one in which the cuff of webbing will have a high range of extensibility, for fitting legs or ankles of difi'erent sizes, even though the member 10 to which it'is stitched is less elastic than the webbing.

The member 10 maybe first vulcanized and then provided with the webbing members, so that the latter may be made in various colors. and with elasticity and durability in high degree.

My invention is susceptible of modification within itsscope without sacrifice of all of the advantages set out in the above statement of objects, and I do not wholly limit my claims to the specific structure shown.

I claim:

1. A stocking protector .comprising a highly flexible leg-encircling member terminating at the ankle at its lower end and formed with completely separable vertical margins, means on said margins for joining them, and additional, elastic leg-encircling means for constricting the leg-encircling member about theankle of the wearer.

2. A stocking protector comprising a leg encircling member terminating'at the ankle at its lower end and formed with completely separable vertical margins, and a completely separable slide-fastener for joining said margins; Y

3. A stocking protector comprising a legencircling member terminatin at the ankle at its lower end and formed with completely separable vertical margins, a completely separable slide-fastener for joining said margins,

and a constricting cuff mounted upon an end vmargin of said member.

an end of the slide-fastener. a

5. A stockin protector comprising a leg-- encircling mem ber terminating at the ankle at its lower end and formed with completely separable vertical margins, a completely separable slide-fastener for joining said margins,

' and constricting cuffs mounted upon the respective end margins of said member,each

cufi having end portions positioned to overlie an end of the slide-fastener.

6. A stocking protector comprising a highly flexible leg-encircling member terminating at the ankle at its lower end and formed with completely separable vertical margins,

means on said margins for joining them, and

additional, elastic leg-encircling means for vconstricting the leg-encircling member about the ankle of the wearer, the said constricting means comprising a circumferentially elastic cufi joined to the said member in an elastic seam.

7. A stocking protector comprising a highly flexible leg-encircling member terminating at the ankle at its lower end and formed with completely separable vertical margins, means on said margins for joining them, additional elastic leg-encircling means for constricting the leg-encircling member about the.

ankle of the wcarer,vthe said constricting means comprising a circumferentially elastic cufi joined to the said member in an elastic seam and having free end portions, and

means for detachably securing together the said free end portions. I

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 19th day of July, 1928.
