CHART/1S DAVIS VELDON, OF MICA, \VASIIINGTON.

KNAPSACK.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 417,301, dated December 17, 1889.

Application filed April 22. 1889. Serial No. 308,124. (No model) To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, CHARLES D. WELDON, of Mica, in the county of Spokane and Territory of Vashington, have invented a new and Improved Knapsack, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved knapsack which "is simple and durable in construction and adapted to carry part of the wearers load in front of the body in a pocket over each breast, thus distributing the load more uniformly on the shoulders and enabling the wearer to carry the load with more case and comfort.

The invention consists of certain parts and details and combinations of the same, as will be hereinafter described, and then pointed out in the claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a front perspective view of the improvement. Fig. 2 is a reduced rear perspective view of the same, and Fig. 3 is a rear perspective view of the improvement with several parts in open position.

The improved knapsack A is provided with the usual bag or sack B, in which articles can be stored in the usual manner. 0n the sides of the bag B are arranged flaps O and 0, adapted to fold over the rear of the bag to hold a blanket or other article located on the back part of the bag B in place. The flaps O and G are locked in place on the back of the bag B by straps D D, buckled into buckles D, said straps being secured on the flap C, while the buckles D are held on the flap G. i

The top opening of the bag 1) is closed by the usual cover E, adapted to fold over the side flaps O and 0' when the latter are in a closed position, as previously described. On the cover-flap E are secured the straps F, adapted to buckle into the buckles F, secured to the bottom of the bag B. On the top of the cover-flap E are secured the straps G, adapted to receive the overcoat of the wearer of the knapsack, as plainly shown in Fig. 2. On top of the cover-flap E are also secured buckles H H, in which buckle shoul- .buckled to the buckles F.

der-straps I I provided near their lower ends at their outer sides with straps J, buckling into the buckles J, fastened to the front of the bag B. The shoulder-straps I and I are preferably widened near their lower ends, so as to fully cover the breast of the wearer. The shoulder-straps I. and I can be connected with each other by straps K K and buckles K and K secured, respectively, to the shoulder-straps l and I. H H are wide and short and rest directly upon the top of the cover-flap E, so that they do not chafe the shoulders nor scratch the gun when carried on the shoulder.

On the. front of the shoulder-straps I and I are secured the pockets L and L, having the cover-flaps N and N, each provided with a strap 0, adapted to be buckled into abuckle O, secured to the lower end of the pocket L or L, respectively. The pockets L L" are made narrow but long, and wide enough to pretty well cover each breast, and being made in this shape the pockets will hold a good deal without projecting far in front of the body.

. The knapsackis used as follows: \Vhen the device is in the open position, (shown in Fig. 3,) various articles can be stored in the bagB, and when the latter is filled the blanket is placed on the outside of the back of the bag 13, after which the flaps C and C are folded over the blanket and buckled together by the straps D and buckles D. The cover-flap E is then moved down over the opening of the bag 13 and over the side flaps C and G, and is fastened in front by the straps F being The folded overcoatis then placed in the straps G, as shown in Fig. 2. The straps K and K are unbuckled from their buckles K and K so that the wearer can conveniently put his arms through the shoulder-straps l and I, after which the straps K and K are buckled across the breast of the wearer to the buckles K and K.

The pockets L and L can be filled with various articles, so as to counterbalance to a great extent the load in the bag 13. hen the pockets L and L are filled, the flaps N and N, respectively, are closed by the straps 0 being buckled to the buckles 0'. Thus it The buckles I Will be seen that the load carried by the wearer is equally distributed 011 the shoulders, enabling the wearer to carry the entire load With ease and comfort.

Having thus fully described my invention, I claim as newand desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. The combination, with the knapsack, of the straps II,buckle d at their upper ends to the top of the knapsack, buckled at their sides, as at J, to the knapsack at or near its ends, the-pockets L L on the straps I I, and straps and buckles connecting the straps I I, substantially as set forth.

2. The combination, with a knapsack, of the I 5 side straps I, buckled to the top thereof at their upper ends and widened at their lower ends to cover the breast of the wearer, and provided with pockets L L, straps and buckles J J, connecting the sides of the 20 straps I I with the knapsack, and straps and buckles connecting the adjacent edges of straps I I, substantially as set forth.

CHARLES DAVIS IVELDON.
