Abstract

A highly adaptable beverage container insulator is designed for a significant size range of beverage containers that feature a securable pocket for carrying small personal items. The insulator is tubular with an open top end that is formed from two elastic panels. Each panel has top and bottom edges with elastic hems. The side edges of each panel are slightly curved to maintain the properties and proper appearance of the insulator. The pocket should be formed of the same material as the two main panels. To form the pocket, two panels with Velcro strips for closers are joined on one main panel with elastic strips to form a pocket with a flap for security then the two main panels are joined along their side edges to form a tube. The insulator is placed around a beverage container to better insulate the container and maintain the temperature of the beverage located therein. The outer pocket structure has the ability to securely contain several personal items, i.e. money, credit cards, personal ID, keys, lip-stick, etc.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF INVENTION
  • 1. Technical Field
  • The present invention relates in general to beverage insulators, and in particular to a highly conformable container insulator that is capable of readily and accurately adapting to containers over an unprecedented range of container sizes. The one adoption being that it has an outer pocket that safely allows the user to carry various personal items.
  • 2. Description Of The Prior Art
  • Conventional beverage container insulators, commonly referred to as “koozies,” are used to thermally insulate a hot or cold beverage and allow the user to comfortably grasp the container regardless of the temperature of the beverage and container. Such insulators are well known in the art. A few examples of conventional insulators are disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,381,922, 5,653,124, and 4,577,474. Although each of these prior art provide good beverage insulation, they lack in the availability to carry small amounts of personal items, i.e. money, personal ID, credit cards, keys, lip-stick, etc.
  • It would therefore be advantageous to provide a multipurpose beverage container insulator which would allow a user to transport articles within a secure pocket and lessen the need of other carrying type devices to make events, i.e. beaches, resorts, festivals more enjoyable.
  • SUMMARY OF INVENTION
  • While the invention has been shown or described in only some forms, it should be apparent to those skilled in the art that it is not limited, but susceptible to various changes without departing from the scope of the invention.
  • A highly adaptable beverage container insulator is designed for a significant size range of beverage containers that feature a securable pocket for carrying small personal items. The insulator is tubular with open top end that formed with two elastic panels. Each panel has straight top and bottom edges with elastic hems. The side edges of each panel are slightly curved to maintain the properties and proper appearance of the insulator. The pocket should be formed of the same material as the two main panels. To form the insulator, two panels with Velcro closers are joined on one main panel with elastic strips to form a pocket with a flap for security. Then the two main panels are joined along their side edges to form a tube. The insulator is placed around a beverage located therein. The outer pocket structure has the ability to securely contain several personal items, i.e. money, credit cards, personal ID, keys, lip-stick, etc.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWINGS
  • So that the manner in which the features, advantages and objects of the invention, as well as others which will become apparent, are attained and can be understood in more details, more particular description of the invention briefly summarized above may be had by reference to the embodiment thereof which is illustrated in the appended drawings, which drawings form a part of this specification. It is to be noted, however, that the drawings illustrate only a preferred embodiment of the invention and is therefore not to be considered limiting of its scope as the invention may admit to other equally effective embodiments.
  • FIG. 1 illustrates the beverage insulator mounted to a container having a short, wide profile carrying various items constructed in accordance with the present invention.
  • FIG. 2 illustrates the beverage insulator mounted to a container having a tall, thin profile carrying various items constructed in accordance with the present invention.
  • FIG. 3 illustrates the beverage insulator mounted on a container having a short, wide profile with the flap of the pocket securely closed.
  • FIG. 4 illustrates a side view of the beverage insulator mounted on a container having a short, wide container with the flap securely closed and an elastic material on the side to allow the pocket to expand.
  • FIG. 5 ia a plain view of one of the panels that form the pocket prior to assembly.
  • FIG. 6 illustrates the beverage insulator mounted on a container having a tall, thin container with the flap of the pocket securely closed.
  • FIG. 7 illustrates a side view of the beverage insulator on a container having a tall, thin profile with the flap securely closed and an elastic material on the side to allow the pocket to expand.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Before describing in detail the particular beverage insulator with carrying pocket in accordance with present invention, it should be observed that the invention resides in a novel and non-obvious combination of elements. Accordingly, the elements have been represented by conventional elements in the drawings, showing only those specific details that are pertinent to the present so as not to obscure the disclosure with details that will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art having the benefit of the description herein.
  • FIG. 1, is an improved beverage container insulator wrap, which, in conventional terminology, is commonly referred to as a “koozie”. Thus, insulator readily fits, conforms, and contours to can beverage containers and has a secure front pocket 3 to carry several personal items.
  • FIG. 2, is an improved beverage container insulator wrap, which, in conventional terminology, is commonly referred to as a “koozie”. Thus, insulator readily fits, conforms, and contours bottle beverage containers and has a secire front pocket 3 to carry several personal items.
  • Insulator has a generally tubular shape with an open circular top and outer pocket 3 with a securable flap 5. Insulator is formed from a plurality (preferably four) of the flat, generally rectangular panels 1, 2, 3, 5. In the preferred embodiment, each panel 1, 2, 3, 5 comprises an elastic neoprene material that is approximately 5 to 6.5 mm thick. Each surface of each panel 1, 2, 3, 5 is covered with a colored or graphically illustrated elastic sheet is bonded or otherwise permanently joined to the neoprene substrate of panel 1, 2, 3, 5. The pocket 3 has a Velcro 4 faster sewn near the top to match the Velcro 4 sewn on the flap 5 which will secure the contents in the pocket 3. The sides 6 of the pocket should be an elastic material that will allow the pocket 3 to expand.

Claims (5)

  1. 1. A beverage insulator for various containers, comprising of plurality of elastic panels joined together to form a cylindrical tube having an open upper end and a pocket with a securable flap to carry small items:
  2. 2. The beverage insulator of claim 1 wherein the tube is two panels.
  3. 3. The beverage insulator of claim 1 wherein the pocket has two panels and elastic sides strips.
  4. 4. The beverage insulator of claim 3 wherein the panels are sewn along their side edges.
  5. 5. The beverage insulator of claim 2 wherein the panels are sewn along their side edges.
