Description

Oct. 8, 1935. .1. A. BORGMAN SWIMMING GLOVE.

Filed April 28, 1954 Invenior J. A .Bor91 nan I q wm Patented Oct. 8, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2 Claims.

My invention relates to a swimming glove, and

glove of this type characterized by economy of construction.

An object of the invention is to provide a glove of this character with eificient means adjacent the open end of the glove that will fit into the hollow of the hand adjacent the heel of the hand and prevent inflow and outflow of water relative to the glove.

The invention, together with its advantages and objects will be best understood from a study of the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein:

Figure 1 is a back view of the glove.

Figure 2, is an end view of the glove from the open end thereof and Figure 3 is a sectional view taken substantially on the line 33 of Figure 2.

Referring to the drawing by reference numerals it will be seen that the glove indicated generally by the reference numeral 5 may be formed of any suitable material and includes the fingers 5, thumb 6, palm portion 1 and back 8. At the open end thereof, the edge of the glove is reinforced by an extra thickness of rubber or an elastic band as indicated generally at 9.

Between the fingers, and between the latter and the thumb 6 are provided the webs l0, and at the edges thereof the webs ID are turned downwardly in the direction of the palm side of the glove as at Illa and as clearly shown in Figure 3 so as to give a cup eifect to the web and thus add to the purchase obtainable as the hand with the glove thereon is moved through the water toward the body and in a manner well known in the art of swimming.

On the palm side of the glove there is provided internally of the glove, and immediately adjacent the open end thereof what may be termed a stopper H. The stopper l I may be formed of rubber or any other suitable material and is of any suitable length and thickness so as to completely fill the hollow of the palm of the hand immediately adjacent the heel of the hand in such a manner as to prevent water from rushing in and out of the glove, it being understood that the glove fits the hand so as to cover the back and palm thereof with the open end of the glove terminating adjacent to the heel of the hand, leaving the major 5 portion of the heel of the hand and the wrist exposed.

It will be found that in actual practice a swimming glove embodying the features of the present invention will tend to greatly simplify the 10 art of swimming, will enable a beginner to learn to swim more easily and quickly, will enable a person versed in swimming to perform with less exertion; while floating, treading water and the like will be greatly simplified, all of which tends 15 to add to the pleasure of swimming.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:

1. A swimming glove having finger and thumb receiving portions and webs between said finger 20 and thumb receiving portions, said glove also including palm and back sections terminating substantially immediately to the rear of the thumb portion of the glove and also immediately at about the heel portion of the hand so as to leave 25 the heel portion of the hand at the palm and back thereof exposed, and a filler secured to the palm section of the glove and adapted to fit into the hollow of the hand immediately adjacent the heel of the hand to act as a stopper against the entrance of water into the glove.

2. A swimming glove having finger and thumb receiving portions, webs between said finger and thumb receiving portions, and palm and back sections, the said palm and back sections of the glove terminating a short distance rearwardly from the finger portion and immediately to the rear of the thumb portion of the glove so as to leave the heel portion of the hand of the wearer exposed, said palm section of the glove being provided on its inner side with a resilient member of suitable length and thickness to fit into the hollow of the hand immediately adjacent the heel of the hand as and for the purpose specified.

JOSEPH A. BORGMAN.
