Title:
"4in1" bag collection
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
The “4in1” bags do not have a front side or a back side. The flap is fixed in the middle seam on top of the bag and can be swung over to either side of the bag body. Both sides of the bag body and also both sides of the flap are colored differently. Therefore four different color combinations are possible. Very simple, just by turning the bag body and swinging the flap over. From plain black to striking colors, the user can make his or her own choice.

1. The “4in1” bags are bags with four color and function combinations, characterized by large color-fields (FIG. 2, no. 6) in different sizes and colors on either side of the bag body. Horizontally or vertically positioned on either color-field (FIG. 2, no. 6) are one or more flat pockets (FIG. 1+2, no. 4), which can be opened by a zipper. The “4in1” bags are bags with four color and function combinations, characterized by a flap (FIGS. 1+2, no. 1) which is fixed in the middle seam (FIG. 2, no. 8) on top of the bag body. Both sides of the flap (FIGS. 1+2, no. 1) are colored differently and on both sides one or more flat pockets (FIG. 1+2, no. 4), which can be opened by a zipper, are positioned either horizontally or vertically. The “4in1” bags are bags with four color and function combinations, characterized by the flap (FIGS. 1+2, no. 1) which can be swung over to either side of the bag body, in either direction, whereas the flap (FIG. 1+2, no. 1) then covers the color field (fields (FIG. 2, no. 6) on one side and the color field (fields (FIG. 2, no. 6) on the other side of the bag body will get visible. Therefore 4 different color and function combinations are possible. Of course this new function can be transferred to many kinds of bag bodies, either square, round, triangular or whatever shape they might have. Accordingly the shape of the flap can be square, round, triangular or any other shape.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Bags of usual construction are equipped with a flap to close and protect the inside and contents of the bag. Bags of usual construction do have a designed front side and a plain back side. The flap is mostly fixed on the backpanel. Most bags therefore offer only one design for the user. Additionally there are inside-out-bags, which offer two designs or bags with changeable or detachable shoulderstraps and flaps. But our bags “4in1” offer four designs in just one bag.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

There is no front side and no back side on the “4in1” bags. Both sides are designed and offer different color combinations. The flap is fixed in the middle seam on top of the bag and can be swung over to either side of the bag body. Therefore four different color combinations are possible. From plain black to striking colors, the user can make his or her own choice. The “4in1” bags offer four different color combinations in just one bag. Very simple, just by turning the bag body and swinging the flap over.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

Since bags of usual construction are equipped with a flap to close and protect the inside and contents of the bag and since bags of usual construction do have a designed front side and a plain back side, the models “4in1” can easily be distiguished from these usual bags, because there is no front side and no back side on the “4in1” bags. Usual bags offer only one design for the user, but our bags “4in1” offer four designs in just one bag. Both sides are designed and offer different color combinations. This means the user can simply choose which color he or she wants to wear. Since the flap is fixed in the middle seam on top of the bag and can be folded over to either side of the bag body, the user simply turns the bag body around and swings the flap over to whatever color field he or she wants to wear. Four different color combinations are possible. From plain black to striking colors, the user can make his or her own choice. The “4in1” offers four different color combinations in just one bag. Very simple, just by turning the bag body and swinging the flap over. Of course this new function can be transferred to many kinds of bag bodies, either square, round, triangular or whatever shape they might have. Accordingly the shape of the flap can be square, round, triangular or any other shape.
