hunters, such as duck, geese and game hunter's
46 who may stand on watch during the night or
early morning hours.
A still further use is to provide a comfortable
traveling garment for dog and stage users in the
cold climates, particularly for persons‘ who are
50 ill or injured.
A further object is to provide a sleeping bag
in which the sleeper may turn to rest on his
side and still have it optional whether or not

bag 8. This is usually composed of van outer.
‘covering 9 and an inner covering I 0 between
which down, wool or other ?lling I2 is provided.
Thetwo coverings 9 and ID are quilted together 30

sleeping bag construction.’ For someuses it may .
'be desirable to‘ use‘ merely an. inner bag made ,
of blanketing wool or ?eece materials, or as quite
often occurs in extreme temperatures, it may be 30
most desirable to have a down bag and then to
have inside of the same‘ a fleece or woolbag.
The outstanding feature of my present bag
residesin its garment like construction, in‘ that ,
it is provided with a hood portion‘ l4, having 40
puckering strings l6 so that the face opening ll may be enlarged‘ or reduced. In some cases it
may be found desirable to have the same lined
or edged with fur.
Abody portion i8 is next 45

This is in turn provided with sleeve
like extensions as 20 and 2| which in turn ter
minate in an adjustably fastened wrist, or cuii,
member 22 formed on the outer covering 6. The a
inner garment terminates in a, preferably, knit
ted wrister 24. Both cuff 22 and wrister 24 are
so arranged that when the sleeper withdraws his
hand a complete closure is formed for the sleeve
so that no air will be admitted. The sleeves 54
ensures 7
should be longer than the arms with the hands
to the seams and also that a method of closure
for the garment will be provided in case of any
The sleeves, themselves, are really more exten
sions of the bag then sleeves, in that their depth
at the shoulder is very great so that the user can
‘withdraw the hand after he’h'as lain down and,
by folding the arm up after the showing of Fig
ure 4, the entire arm can be withdrawn from the '
arm portion of the bag.
The lower end of body II is provided with very
short leg portions as' 2‘ and 21. These leg por

front of the garment has been closed I then pro
vide an additional snap'fastener as 48 for holding

The foregoing description? and the accompany
ing drawings are believed to clearly disclose a
preferred embodiment of my invention but it
will be understood that this disclosure is merely 10'
illustrative and that such changes in the inven
tions are so short‘as to be hardly classi?ed as ~tlon may. be made as are
within the 80098
legs. They normally reach only about half way and spirit of the followingfairly
up to the knee. Their main purpose'is to provide for the foot reinforcement members as 20
and ill. This reinforcement may be made of the
same material that the outer covering 0 is made _
from or they may, preferably, be made from more
wear resistant material as light leather or rubber
u for instance. The leg portions should be fully
cut and have amplebreadth so that there will
be su?icient room for placing the feet in, and
withdrawing them from the same; the foot por
tions should be of su?icient length to allow the
placing of both feet in a single leg after the
showing of Figure 4 so that the user may have
the increased warmth acquired when the two feet
are together in sleeping.
When the bag is to be used as a garment so
that the wearer can move about, it is normally
desirable to tie the leg portions abovethe ankle
after the showing of Figure 3 and to this end I
have provided tapes, or cords 32 and reinforce
ment pieces as 34 secured one to each leg‘portion
in a position corresponding to the counter of a
shoe, except that the same vare ofmuch greater
Tofurther facilitate the use of the bag as a
garment it should, preferably, be provided with
a belt, or tape, as 35 so that the bag can be made
to fit, to a degree at least, about the user’s waist.
It has been found convenient to provide the sleep
ing bag with pockets on the outside as indicated
at 31 and 38 and on‘ the inside of the garment
so that it may be used at night. These latter are
not shown in the drawings, but would normally
lie substantially under pocket 31 or 38, possibly
a little lower down so as to be more readily avail
To make it convenient to. get in and out of the
bag and also to render it more useable as a night
garment, I have provided closure members of
the locking lug type, so arranged that they may
be opened or closed from the inside as well as
from the outside; it being necessary to use two of
these, an inner one ll for the inner bag 8 and
an outer one ‘I for the outer bag. In addition
to the lug fasteners I have found it desirable to
provide the usual snap fasteners as indicated at
42 and 43 so that added protection will be given
Having thus “fully described my invention, what
I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters
