Abstract

The present invention is an arm pocket attached by “V” configured straps allowing a wearer's arm to comfortably and securely support the pocket worn. A storage body may contain dual flaps extending over the top of the arm pocket when opened, and extending below the arm pocket when unlatched. The pocket can contain a “touch-through” vinyl window to allow portable music player operation without removing the player from the secured arm pocket. Various pocket/strap sizes and hook and loop strap configurations, along with many material compositions suitable for every occasion with added security provided by the compressible split-end strap that fold back over the double-loop sizing device. Utilizing visco-elastic memory foam-type padding sculpted to mirror the arm's natural contours, the arm pocket wearer can also comfortably and securely carry heavy items.

Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD & BACKGROUND
  • The present invention generally relates to the field of an arm pocket that is a secure, functional, fashionable, and sports orientated accessory allowing easy access to personal articles. This multi-function item can be utilized by anyone requiring hands-free, immediate access to personal or professional items.
  • Likewise, the incessant demand of the fashion industry for fresh ideas combined with consumer demand for products that simplify their daily routine has paved the way for the development of the arm pocket. This invention capitalizes on the recent miniaturization of personal electronic devices and the user's desire to keep them securely and readily available, while satisfying the demand for a functional and fashionable clothing accessory.
  • The arm pocket consists of a closable fabric or leather pocket worn around the upper arm between the shoulder and elbow and can be coordinated as part of the wearer's ensemble. Similar to a shoulder-worn purse that loosely hangs from the shoulder with a strap, the arm pocket is designed to hold the wearer's personal belongings, but is securely attached to the wearer. The arm pocket is secured to the upper arm by a plurality of adjustable, elastic, neoprene, leather or other material designed in a unique “V” configuration allowing the wearer full range of arm motion while the pocket remains securely in place on the upper arm. This “V” strap configuration allows for greater weight distribution along the vertical axis of the arm in contrast to a single strap configuration. This greater weight distribution capability provides the wearer comfortable, secure, and easy access to an unprecedented number of personal items. Likewise, for situations where the wearer desires to carry only a few lightweight items, a single strap configuration can also be incorporated into this design. Adding to the arm pocket's security is its unique “split-end” design of the “V” strap where the ends flare out after passing through the connecting loop. Further incorporation of a dual-loop “belt-type” connection allows even greater security. This split-end configuration significantly reduces the probability of the straps falling away from the wearer's arm in the event the Velcro or hook and loop connection inadvertently detaches—a predicament plaguing existing armband devices today.
  • The present invention also capitalizes on the advancements in polycarbonate torsion support systems that allow even greater weight distribution along a radially formed, side-cinch compression “arm-belt”. Utilizing an Air-Mesh, EVA foam-type harness comprised of Neoprene or Velvetex-type breathable fabric, the wearer can comfortably and securely carry unprecedented amounts of weight between the natural indent formed between the wearer's bicep, tricep and anterior deltoid muscle. This location's natural multiple contours also takes advantage of the limited range of motion and reduced forces exerted on the upper arm as opposed to the wrist or hand which is located at the end of the rapidly moving “lever” when the arm is in motion. Subsequently, the greater centrifugal forces associated with most sports activities involving throwing a ball or swinging a racquet makes storage bags located on the lower arm or wrist impractical for active wearers. Tests have shown the streamlined, lightweight arm pocket can be worn on the wearer's arm without impeding the player's performance. Additionally, in non-contact sports, the arm pocket's internal, elastic compartments allow participation in sports without damaging its contents.
  • The arm pocket allows the runner, weight lifter, ball-player or the most avid sports fan to keep her cell phone, portable music player, keys and other valuables safe inside the confines of the pocket securely attached to her arm and not on the bench where they can “mysteriously” disappear in the heat of competition.
  • Additionally, integrated inside the arm pocket's storage body are zippered or Velcro enclosed compartments and retainers constructed of expandable, elastic material for securing items such as a cell phone, portable music player, lipstick/pill bottle, credit cards, cash, and a compartment for keys and coins. The center zippered or Velcro enclosed compartment divides the main storage body into two main storage compartments that can be used for larger items such as electronic devices. This central dividing compartment is unique in that it can be secured to the bottom of the arm pocket by hook and loop connectors (Velcro) allowing the quick removal and reinsertion of the compartment. This allows the wearer to easily retrieve the contents of this compartment without having to search for items with one hand while the device is worn on the arm. The ability to easily extract the central compartment also allows the wearer to quickly interchange the compartment and its contents (keys, cash, ID, credit cards) from one arm pocket to another.
  • Flaps can be integrated into the top and bottom of the pocket and are secured with latching mechanisms. These flaps contain see-through compartments for driver license, personal identification or business cards. Variants of the arm pocket that integrate flaps can also contain a cosmetic mirror and penholder for easy access. These flaps can be secured with a bungee cinch system to allow additional item into the expandable compartments.
  • Variants of the arm pocket will contain a “touch-through” front that will allow the wearer to access the controls of their I-pod, GPS, or other electronic device. This allows the wearer to adjust their electronic device's controls without removing the device from the pocket.
  • Similarly, hikers or runners could carry a collapsible water canteen or other beverage container in a heavy-duty, PVC coated nylon material or other camel bak-type drinking system or water bottle and water backs specifically adapted for the arm pocket. Likewise, the wearer can insert a canned beverage in an insulated holder while also holding other personal articles.
  • Adding to this invention's functionality is the incorporation of molded aluminum, plastic or other beverage containers that conform to the shape of the wearer's arm, and would securely fit into the arm pocket's insulated beverage compartment. This beverage holder would fit inside the arm pocket, and be made of insulating material like denier nylon, polyurethane, foil backed bubble or other insultote-type material. These “low-profile” beverage containers could allow the wearer easy access to his favorite energy drink, or other beverage of choice while participating in rigorous and active sporting events.
  • In a social setting, women today are restricted to carrying their personal items in a clutch or over the shoulder purse restricting the use of both hands. In addition, when searching for items buried in a cluttered purse, women often waste valuable time in search of items like keys, pens, credit cards, cash or their cell phone. The arm pocket provides a fashionable, multi-functional and secure storage system that keeps personal items organized and readily available under any situation—under any condition. In addition, the arm pocket can be fashionably coordinated to match the wearer's dress as a fashion accessory (embellished with sequins, colorful embroidery, or other designer accoutrement), and has the added benefit of freeing both hands to finally allow her to go to the bar and fetch the drinks. Additionally, when taking the dance floor or mingling around the room, ladies no longer have to worry about trusting her purse to the bartender or someone to watch over her purse and its valuable contents. Then, there's always the threat of purse-snatchers or pick-pockets. The arm pocket offers solutions facilitating the wearer's social experience with unprecedented security.
  • Similarly, men are often concerned about the security of their wallets, and who hasn't sat in a chair only to have the contents of his pockets cascade between the cushions of the couch. Then, there's the challenge of going through airport security screening with items left in pants resulting in repeat trips through the metal detector or even a time-consuming wand search.
  • Additional users could include military special forces requiring hands-free access to global positioning systems, communication devices, miniaturized tactical battlefield terminals or other traditional “hand-held” electronic devices. With advancements in similar underwater-capable systems, this device can carry a submersible, crush-proof, “dry box” that is visible and operable like underwater camera housings for recreational divers, who must suspend these devices by straps dangling from the wrist or held in the hand. For wearers who must wear specific uniforms or protective clothing, reinforced loops can be sewn into the garment and serve as wrinkle-resistant, arm pocket attachment points.
  • Moreover, in many families where both parents work, many children are responsible for keeping track of their own house key, which invariably gets lost on the playground or ball field. The arm pocket offers a solution to all these predicaments.
  • The arm pocket represents a unique, viable alternative to existing personal carrying devices. Experience proves that wearing a traditional “fanny pack” while participating in sports that require running or jumping results in the pack with its unsecured internal contents to uncontrollable bounce around inside the pack causing an annoying distraction along with significant bruising to the body caused by the pack itself. Likewise, when working out at the gym, most exercise equipment requires the user to sit down, which can crush or damage fanny pack or pants pockets contents. Also, when participating in sports or attending a sporting event, it is often impractical to carry a purse or place your keys, wallet, cell phone, or music player on your person. Subsequently, this invention allows wearers to participate in their favorite sport or attend any event without worrying about the security of their personal items interfering, or worse—disappearing.
