Description

1954 P. NEUBURGER COMBINATION UTILITY BAG AND HOOD Filed Dec. 4. 1950 INVENTOR PAUL/NA NE UB1) ER ATTORNEY United States Patent COMBINATION UTILITY BAG AND HOOD Paulina Neuburger, Brooklyn, N. Y.

Application December 4, 1950, Serial No. 199,112

2 Claims. (Cl. 2--209.1)

This invention relates to a combination utility bag and water-proof hood or hat protector, and has for its object to provide a utility bag which may be compactly folded into a small package for stowing away or carrying, or opened up to form a water-proof hood to wear over the head.

Other objects and objects relating to the manner of constructing and folding the bag will be apparent as the description proceeds.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which:

Figure 1a is a side view of the bag;

Figure lb is a side view of the bag of Figure 1 showing a step in the process of folding it into its closed or completely folded position;

Figure lc is a perspective view of the bag in its closed or completely folded condition ready for stowing away;

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the bag ready to be used for carrying packages;

Figure 3 is a fragmentary bottom perspective view of a bottom corner of the bag; and

Figure 4 is a perspective view of the bag opened out to form a hood and showing the manner of wearing it on the head of the user.

Referring now more specifically to the drawings, the embodiment of the bag chosen for illustration comprises two rectangular panels 1 and 2 of suitable flexible sheet material preferably waterproof which are arranged parallel to each other and are stitched together or otherwise permanently attached down one end 3. A bottom panel 4, preferably of rectangular shape with curved ends, is similarly attached to the bottom edges of the panels 1 and 2, the end 3 of each panel being curved inwardly to conform with the curved end of the bottom panel 4.

The other end of the bottom panel 4 is split along its center to a point 5 a short distance from the end, and the opposing edges 6 of this split, together with the opposite ends 7 of the panels 1 and 2, are provided with some kind of separable fastener means 8, so that they may be releasably attached. This fastener means may preferably be a device commonly known as a zipper. The zipper is normally closed and in that condition the panels 1 and 2 and the panel 4 form a bag, as clearly illustrated in Figure 2.

The upper edges 9 and 10 of the bag may be suitably hemmed or otherwise finished to form smooth edges, and a tab 11 is attached to the upper edge 9 of the panel 1 at about the center and is provided with a snap or other fastening member 12 which can be secured to a cooperating snap or fastening member 13 attached to the edge of the other panel 2 at a corresponding point. This tab 11 has the two-fold function of closing the top of the bag and also securing the bag in its completely folded or closed condition, as will be later explained.

In order to provide a means for carrying the bag, I attach a strap 14 to the inner surface of the panel 1 just below the edge 9 thereof and a similar strap 15 to the inner surface of the panel 2 just below the edge 10. These straps are preferably almost as long as the bag and the ends of the straps are attached to the panels 1 and 2 adjacent the ends thereof. The straps may be normally retained against the inside surfaces of the panels 1 and 2 by loops, 16 and 17 which are attached to the inner surfaces of the panels 1 and 2, respectively, at points about a third of the distance from the ends of the panels. When the straps 14 and 15 are grasped to lift the bag, they are drawn upwardly into somewhat the position shown in dotted lines in Figure 2 and pull the ends of the panels 1 and 2 towards the loops 16 and 17, producing a gathered effect of the top of the bag. When the bag is flattened out again preparatory to folding, the straps are drawn back into position, lying flat against the inner sides of the panels.

The straps 14 and 15 may be made of any suitable material, preferably the same material of which the rest of the bag is made.

In folding the bag into its compact form it is first flattened out, as disclosed in Figure la, with the panel 4 folded inwardly to bring the bottom edges of the panels 1 and 2 together. Then the sides may be folded inwardly on the dot-and-dash lines 18 and again on the lines 19, so that the bag takes the form shown in Figure 1b. Then the bottom of the bag may be folded up on the dot-and-dash line 20 and again on the line 21 to its completely folded position, as shown in Figure 1c. The tab 11 may then be brought over against the side of the panel 1 and the snap portion 12 caused to engage a cooperating snap portion 22 attached to the side of the panel 1 in the proper position. Thus the bag is securely held in its completely folded position so that it may be stowed away in the pocketbook or pocked when not in use.

In order to use the bag as a hood, it is opened out, as in Figure la and the separable fastener means or zipper 8 opened up. The bag is then turned up on end with the zipper portion down and placed over the head. Preferably the edges 9 and 10 which are then forward around the face of the wearer are turned or rolled in and brought together under the chin where they may be secured together by means of a fastener member, such as a snap portion 23, attached to the panel 1 near the edge 9, which is fastened to a cooperating fastener member, such as the snap portion 24, attached to the panel 2 near the edge 10. This holds the bag, which is now a hood, securely in place on the head of the wearer.

It will be seen from the above that I have provided a combination utility bag and hood or rain hat which is easily and simply constructed and which may be folded into a compact package when not in use, so that it can be conveniently stowed away in any desirable place. It may be quickly opened up into a roomy bag, convenient for use as a shopping bag, lunch, picnic, or beach bag, or general utility bag, easy to carry and pleasing in appearance. When the zipper is unfastened, the bag becomes a water-proof hood which may be quickly applied to the head of the user and snugly fastened in position.

Various modifications may be made in the construction that has been shown and described without departing from the spirt of the invention, and I do not therefore wish to limit my invention except by the limitations which occur in the appended claims.

What I desire to claim and secure by Letters Patent is:

l. A combination utility bag and hood comprising a plurality of flexible panels joined together to provide the sides, ends and bottom portions of a rectangular hollow bag, the top of said bag being open, means for securing said panels together to form said bag, and means making said bag convertible into said hood, characterized in that said last mentioned means comprises a releasable fastening means extending longitudinally along the complete length of one of said end portions and extending part way into said bottom portion and centrally thereof, whereby when said fastening means is unfastened said bagdmay be used as a hood adapted to be fitted over ones hea 2. The combination according to claim 1, and further comprising a first" fastening means located on said side portions intermediate the longitudinal limits andadjacent the open top thereof, to bridge the open top when said bag is in a utility position and adapted to hold said bag in collapsed position when said side portions are folded, a second fastening means located adjacent said first fastening means and adjacent the open top of said bag to hold the bag in head engaging position when used as a hood, and handle means fastened adjacent the upper edge of each of said side portions for carrying said bag.
