D. M. YOUNG Aug. 2, 1966 HUNT CAP Filed March 6, 1964 United States Patent VO:

3,263,235 HUNT CAP Dorothy M. Young, 2316 Colston Drive, Silver Spring, Md. Filed Mar. 6, 1964, Ser. No. 349,932 2 Claims. (Cl. 2-3) This invention rel-ates to a hunt cap or the like, more particularly to a hunt cap having a readily removable decorative cover.

A hunt cap usually used by huntsmen consists of a hard shell providing a crown and visor which is sutiiciently rigid to oder some protection to the head of the huntsman. The shell has permanently axed thereto a decorative cover of some material, usually velvet, which completely covers the cap and the visor and extends upwardly inside and is permanently secured to the shell.

It is an object of this invention to provide a hunt cap that has a readily removable decorative cover on the base shell construction.

It is another object of this invention to provide a readily removable decorative oover that can be removed andv replaced, or replaced with another decorative cover withlcutdthe use of metallic fastenings or stitching of any lt is a further object of this invention to provide a decorative cover for a hunt cap that resembles, in every respect, the standard conventional non-replaceable cover.

Further and other objects will become apparent from a description of the accompanying drawings lin which:

FIG. 1 shows a plan view of the hunt cap of this invention; and

FIG. 2 shows a side elevational view in section of a hunt cap of this invention.

In the drawings a hunt cap is generally shown as 1 having a peak or visor 2 of conventional design.

In FIG. 2, in an enlarged cross section, a shell 3 is shown Which forms a crown of' the hunt cap and has a portion for forming a visor which may be formed integrally with the shell or rigidly and permanently secured thereto. The decorative cover is indicated as 5 which extends over the crown and over the top 5' and bottom S of the visor to completely cover the shell. Cover 5 extends upwardly and inside the shell as shown at 6 to complete the decorative cover of the shell.

Button 12 is decorative only and may be attached t0 the cover and removable therewith.

The cover S h-as secured to portion 6, an extension 7 which extends around the entire periphery of portion 6 inside the shell of the cap. It is formed on its inner end with a hem or looped portion 8 coextensive with the periphery thereof to provide for a drawstring 9 to adjust the inner extension in the cap to a range of head sizes.

On the inside of shell 5 and the inside of the cap cover, are mounted two strips of material. The strip of material 10 is secured around the entire inner periphery of shell 5 of the cap. The strip of material 11 is secured around the entire periphery of the inner side of portion 7. Portion 7 is secured to portion 6, both of which are portions of the cap cover, and it extends around the entire periphery of the inside of the cap.

Strips 10 and 11 are strips of tiexible material having the adjacent faces provided with intereng-ageable means. The interengageable surfaces along the length of the Patented August 2, 1966 strips comprise what is commercially identified by the trademark Velcro One of the surfaces includes a multiplicity of small outwardly projecting loops of thin iilamentary materia-l and the other surface is provided with 5 -a multiplicity of curled or crinkled filament members and are engageable with the loops. When the two materials are pressed together they 4interlock and the faces intermesh. The free end of the filaments on one face interlocks and intermeshes with the other looped, fibrous face 10 to form a temporary fastening throughout its length. These materials may be placed together with small amounts of pressure which will hold the two materials firmly throughout their length but may be readily disengaged and reengaged at will.

15 In FIG. 2 material 10 is shown having on its surface, a looped material on the face. Material 11 is shown on the adjacent face' having the iilamentary cut end material to engage the looped 4,surface of material 10. It is to be understood that elements 10 and 11 may be interchanged insofar as the lining and cap is concerned.

To remove cover 5 from shell 3 and visor 4 it is merely necessary to YreachY inside and remove the cover by disengaging members 10 and 11 around the periphery of the inside of the shell a little at a time. When portion 7 is moved to a position outside the shell, the cover may be removed from the shell.

The cover may be replaced or a cover of a different color installed by lirst sliding it over the visor and then over the shell. The cover which will have one of the fastening strips 11 secured thereto is then pressed into place against the strip 10 which remains with the shell, being bonded thereto. The head size of the cover is then adjusted by string 9 and the cap is ready for use. This may be repeated as often as is desired. Element 10 stays with the shell 3 while element 11 is removed with the cover and lining assembly 5-9.

By the foregoing, a removable and replaceable cover is provided lwhich affords great economy as well as providing a ready interchangeability of covers for changing colors or replacement.

It is to be understood that certain changes, alterations, modifications and substitutions may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

1. A hunt cap or the like comprising a rigid protective hard inner shell, said shell consisting of a crown portion and visor portion, and a decorative cover assembly cornpletely covering the outer portion of said shell including said visor portion, said decorative cover -assembly extending inside said crown portion, coextensive fastening means having one portion secured to the inner side of said crown portion extending completely around the inside opening of said crown portion and other cooperating portions of said fastening means extending completely around the inside of said cover assembly adjacent the open portion of said crown to engage said portions of said coextensive fastening means mounted on said crown and cooperating mounting means on said cover assembly to secure and retain said removable cover assembly on said crown.
