A plication November, 29, 1947; Seriat No; 788,831

*1 Claims, (01; 2-?8 8).

1, invention r la es. to improvem nts. in on.- ver-tible cushions and more particularly to. cush.

es wh ch m e temati la betransio'r ed. nto

ainc at- 1flfaima s- W e att ndin midg t mete s ch a ball.

cape are carried, if; no need arises for the latter,

the'rr it has. been. merely excess baggage.

a nera qbie of this nventi n, t fore is to obviate the necessity of carrying; the added bulk;

of; both the above mentioned articles by providing. a mash qawhi n ar alt r atively betransrorm into a st ia or care... u d, th occas on here? for who A more specific object of this invention is to provide a raincoat. or cape. formed with an attractive parka type of hood. integral therewith into which the rest of the coat or cape may be.

neatly and easily folded to form a readily portable cushion.

A further object of this invention is to provide arain coat or cape formed with anintegral. substantially rectangular parka-type hood having two edges closed and being provided. on the. other two edges with a multiple slide operated fastener or other suitable fastening means, such that when the remainder of the rain cape or coat is folded.

within the, parka-type hood and. when the slide fastener is closed, a comfortable cushion of conventional size and shape and of neat appearance is provided.

A further object of the invention is to provide a combination raincoat and cushion which is simple and easy to manufacture, which is compact when carried, which gives the desired protection from the elements, and which is otherwise well adapted for the purposes described.

With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists of the improved convertible cushion, and all its parts and combinations as set forth in the claims, and all equivalents thereof.

In the accompanying drawings, illustrating one complete embodiment of the preferred form of the invention, in which the same reference numerals designate the same parts in all of the views:

Fig. 1 is a front perspective view of the invention being worn as a rain cape;

Fi s s n enlar ed fra men ar perspective ie o the earkah od portion oftheinvention ho ng ts c z c n o; he cape portion and showing the slide fastener opentd permit. either wearing of; the; garment. or. folding ofthe.- cap portion thereof: into th hood;

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary rear view; of the invention; it. looks in open position and ready to: be ut on he wear F e is; a s de-View of, the. invention showing the coat. or capeportionv thereof" folded into the parka hood portion. thereof,. the slide fastener being open andnone side being drawn back to show the folded;- portion in: the interior of the hood poron: and. I

Fig. 5a view of the. invention similar tov that shown in Fig. 4;, but withtheslide fastener closed. The. inventioninthis. condition is adapted for use. as .a cushion;

Referring more particularly to. the drawing, thenumeral l0 indicates a cape constructed of suitabl material. suchas waterproof, water repellant, or coatingmateri-al. Atthe neck portion of the capelfljisconnected aparka-type hood II which 2Q is substantially rectangular in outline whenfiat' toned. The-hood l-;l:. oonsists-ofa'right side-panel portion-.12; anda left. side. panel portion I3. The panels, t2 and. [3: are in permanently closed con-- nection. along their'upper. edges l 4- andalong their afitirear. edges L5; The panels l2 and 13 are also in permanently closed connection for a portion 1-6 of their lower edges l1. Extending continuously along. thefront'edges tit and along a portion of the-loweredges H of the panels I 2 and I 3 is a ilnultiple slide operated fastener I9 having a slide The connection between the cape l0 and the hood II is made interiorly of the slide fastener I9 and extends in a generally U-shape around and adjacent the portions of the fastener l9 which extend along the edges I! of the panels l2 and I3, as shown in Figs. 2 and 4. This method of attachment prevents the metal of the slide fastener l9 from coming in direct contact with the person of the wearer by causing that portion of the fastener l9 which extends along the edges I! to overlie the cape l0 when the latter is being worn as is shown clearly in Figs. 2 and 3. This method of connection is also important in connection with the folding operation of the garment within the hood to form a cushion. In addition, the hood I l is of such ample proportions that the portion of slide fastener l9 extending along the edges I8 is never in close proximity to the face of the wearer.

The cape portion It may be folded into the hood portion H as shown in Fig. 4, and when it is so folded, the slide fastener l9 may be closed as shown in Fig. 5.

By having the connection between the cape portion and the hood portion extend along the lower (shorter) edge of the hood portion only, the folding of the cape portion into the hood is greatly facilitated. In addition, the location of the above-mentioned connection interiorly of the slide fastener permits the fastener to be easily and quickly closed to form a cushion after the cape portion has been folded within the head por-' tion. When the invention is in the condition of Fig. 5, it is in all respects well adapted for use as a cushion.

The invention may be used anywhere. that a cushion is desirable, but finds its best use .where the user desires a cushion while seated out of doors, If, while the invention is so employed rain should threaten or if for any other reason the user should feel the need of the protection aiforded by the raincoat or cape, it is a simple matter for him to open the fastener 19, shake the cape or coat l0 out of the hood portion II (as in Fig. 3), and to wear the cape in the conventional manner (shown in Fig. 1).

- The fact that thisinvention is well adapted to either of its dual purposes gives it unique utility, especially to fishermen, spectators at outdoor sporting events, or anyone engaged in sedentary outdoor pastimes or occupations. I

Various changes and modifications may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention, such as making the garment with sleeves or in other styles than that shown in the embodiment herein described or by making the garment of other materials than those mentioned, and all of such changes are contemplated as may come within the scope of the claims.

What I claim is:

1. A garment convertible into a cushion com prising a coat having a neck opening, and a hood attached to said coat adjacent and coextensive with the margin of said neck opening and exteriorly thereof, said hood being 'of substantially rectangular shape and having an opening extending along two adjacent sides thereof, said opening being provided with a multiple slide operated fastener-along said two sides, said coat being foldable into said hood through said opening to form a cushion.
