Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The invention concerns a jacket with a hood featuring a hood opening and with a zip fastener, which is beginning at the lower end of the front side of the jacket and comprises two rows of zip fastener connecting elements, opposing each other and beginning at the lower end of the front side of this jacket, and a zipper slider.

In DE 20 2004 015 754 U1 and DE 89 04 516 U1 jackets are described which have a zip fastener at their front side and at their back side, respectively, each zip fastener extending from the bottom of the jacket to the base of the neck or collar. The jacket which is described in DE 89 04 516.5 is equipped with removable and exchangeable sleeves, wherein the two-part front side and two-part back side of the jacket have different patterns. In these known jackets, the front side parts and the back side parts always remain as such unchanged and can only be combined to a second jacket with correspondingly tailored front side parts and back side parts.

These known jackets have no hood.

Known are so-called reversible jackets, equipped with zip fasteners, with different patterns at their inner side and outer side. The term “patterns” encompasses different designs, colorations, applications and the like. Such reversible jackets can be equipped also with removable sleeves that can be reattached to the jacket body and that also can have different patterns at their inner and outer sides.

It is the object of the invention to design a jacket with a hood featuring a hood opening and with a zip fastener beginning at the lower end of the front side of the jacket and comprising two opposed tapes (rows) of zip fastener connecting elements beginning at the lower end of the front side of the jacket as well as a zipper slider in such a way that its outer appearance can be expanded in such a way that the front sides and back sides when wearing the jacket are mutually interchangeable.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

As a solution of this object, the jacket according to the invention is characterized in that it is divided centrally in its longitudinal direction along the zip fastener connecting element rows into two jacket segments and in that the tapes (rows) of zip fastener connecting elements extend continuously centrally substantially along the complete front and back sides of the jacket and along the borders delimiting the hood opening through the hood, divided in its longitudinal direction, to the back side of the jacket and end at the lower end of the back side of the jacket, and in that a further zipper slider is associated with the tapes (rows).

In this way, it is possible to interchange the front sides and the back sides of the jacket.

Preferred embodiments of the invention are described in dependent claims.

The separable two-way zip fasteners, preferably in head-to-head form, mentioned in connection with an embodiment of the invention in claim 5 are known.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

The invention will be described in the following with the aid of the drawing in more detail:

FIG. 1 shows a virtual view of a jacket with an open zip fastener wherein the jacket is separated centrally in its longitudinal direction along its front and back sides into two segments. The Figure shows the jacket in a virtual plan view; in reality, the front and back sides are connected to each other, as schematically shown by the dashed line a.

FIG. 2 shows, comparable with FIG. 1, the “folded-open” jacket in a presentation corresponding to the configuration of FIG. 3.

FIG. 3 shows the front view of the jacket according to the invention in a first state of use.

FIG. 4 shows the rear view of the jacket shown in FIG. 3.

FIG. 5 shows the jacket in a second state of use in which the previous back side according to FIG. 4 is turned to become the front side.

FIG. 6 shows the rear view of the jacket shown in FIG. 5.

FIGS. 7-10 show, comparable with the FIGS. 3-6, the front and rear views of the jackets in their respective states of use, however in each case with folded-back hood.

DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

According to FIG. 1, the inventive jacket is separated centrally in its longitudinal direction along its front and back sides into two segments I and II, i.e., a segment I of the jacket shown to the left and a segment II of the jacket shown to the right. The front sides 1.1 and 1.2 of the jacket are connected to the back sides 2.1 and 2.2 of the jacket, as schematically shown by the dashed lines a.

At the facing edges of the two segments I and II of the jacket, tapes (rows) 3.1 and 3.2 are attached which are equipped with a plurality of zip fastener connecting elements (not shown in detail) and extend continuously over the entire front side and back side of the jacket, including the hood 4.1 and 4.2. These tapes (rows) 3.1 and 3.2 begin at the lower end of the front side 1.1 and 1.2 of the jacket and extend from there farther along the borders which are delimiting the hood opening through the hood 4.1 and 4.2, divided in its longitudinal direction, to the back side 2.1 and 2.2 of the jacket and end at the lower end of the back side 2.1 and 2.2. Preferably, two self-locking zipper sliders 5 are provided for joining the two segments I and II of the jacket to one jacket, as shown in FIG. 2.

The zip fastener used according to the invention is a so-called separable two-way zip fastener preferably of a head-to-head form.

In FIG. 1, the two rows of zip fastener connecting elements 3.1 and 3.2 are shown in their completely open state.

According to FIG. 2, the rows 3.1 and 3.2 of zip fastener connecting elements are partly or mainly closed by means of the two zipper sliders 5, wherein the first zipper slider 5 is pulled up approximately to the upper chest area while the part of the zip fastener which is adjoining the back side of the jacket is pulled up by means of the second zipper slider 5 approximately to the upper part of the hood 4.1 and 4.2 or to the forehead area of a person wearing the jacket.

FIG. 3 shows a front view of the jacket according to the invention in a first state of use which corresponds to the virtually folded-open state of the jacket shown in FIG. 2.

FIG. 4 shows the back side of the jacket illustrated in FIG. 3,

FIG. 5 shows the jacket according to the invention in a second state of use in which the original back side 2.1 and 2.2 of the jacket according to FIG. 4 now forms the front side of the jacket.

FIG. 6 shows the back side of the jacket illustrated in FIG. 5.

In FIGS. 2 to 10, the zip fastener is shown in a partly or mainly closed state, respectively.

The FIGS. 7 to 10 show, comparable to the FIGS. 3 to 6, the front and back sides of the jacket in their respective state of use, however with folded-back hood, respectively.

The jacket, as far as the material of the jacket is concerned, is divided into two symmetric segments I and II of the jacket. The front and back sides of the two segments I and II of the jacket have different patterns, namely preferably on their inner side as well as on their outer side. In this way, it is possible to wear the jacket in a multitude of states of use or combination possibilities. The first two states of use have already been described in detail. When the jacket according to the invention is now turned inside out, two additional states of use are available directly because these front sides and back sides of the jacket are interchangeable also. When the zip fastener is opened completely and the jacket is separated into its two segments I and II and only one of these two segments is turned inside out and joined again with the aid of the zip fastener, maximally four additional states of use result accordingly. When the reversible sleeves are taken into account too, several additional combination possibilities result because the sleeves are preferably also provided with different patterns on their inner side and outer side in the manner of reversible jackets. The jacket sleeves can be taken off preferably by zip fasteners, not shown, and reattached again.

The hood segments 4.1 and 4.2 are preferably formed as one piece together with the segments land II of the jacket.

The invention concerns also sleeveless jackets.
