Description:

BACKGROUND

There is a need for a sport shirt that can store devices normally carried by active individuals during physical training.

The inventor of this invention realized the above need when he was taking a morning run. During the run he realized how uncomfortable it was to carry his portable music device, keys, and cellular phone. Upon returning to his home he decided to design a sport shirt that would maximize his comfort level during his runs. He realized that the shirt would have to be made of a stretchy material that would hold any devices carried by him snug to his body. He also realized that the shirt should have safety features that would be visible to third parties.

The safety features would be essential to individuals wearing the sport shirt. It is important to realize that many individuals carrying portable music devices are oblivious to the dangers facing them when exercising outdoors.

It is an object of this invention to provide a sport shirt for active individuals that will store portable devices while exercising.

It is a further object of this invention to provide a sport shirt for active individuals with inherent safety features.

For the foregoing reasons, there is a need for a sport shirt that will carry portable devices while providing the user with safety features.

SUMMARY

The present invention is directed to a sport shirt that will store portable devices snug to an individual's body during the individual's exercise routines. The sport shirt comprises of a shirt that is made of a stretchy material, at least one compartment made of a stretchy material that is attached to the shirt, and at least one safety reflector that is attached to the shirt. The sport shirt may have up to three compartments, but the essential compartment is a compartment that is centrally located on the front or back of the shirt that would be used to house a portable music device. The reflector would be placed on the side of the shirt not having the compartment.

An advantage of this invention is that it provides active individuals with a sport shirt that will store portable devices during exercise routines.

A further advantage of this invention is that it provides active individuals with a sport shirt that has inherent safety features.

These and other features, aspects, and advantages of the present invention will become better understood with regard to the following description, appended claims, and drawings where:

FIG. 1a shows a front view of an embodiment of a sport shirt;

FIG. 1b shows a rear view of the sport shirt of FIG. 1a;

FIG. 2a shows a rear view of another embodiment of a sport shirt;

FIG. 2b shows a front view of the sport shirt of FIG. 2b;

FIG. 3a shows a front view of a further embodiment of the sport shirt; and

FIG. 3b shows a rear view of the sport shirt of FIG. 3a.

DESCRIPTION

As seen in FIG. 1a-b, a sport shirt comprises of a shirt 10 that is made of a stretchy material, a compartment 12 made of a stretchy material that is centrally attached to the front of the shirt 10, and at least one safety reflector 16 that is attached to the rear of the shirt 10. The shirt and the compartment's material will stretch sufficiently to house a portable device so that the device remains snug to the user's body. Materials that will stretch to the inventions requirements are known in the art. The reflector 16 would be placed on the side of the shirt 10 not having the compartment 12. The compartment 10 may have a means for closing 12a the compartment 12. The compartment 12 may further define an opening 13 that allows an earphone chord to be connected to a portable device housed within the compartment.

The means for closing 12a the compartment 12 can be a zipper, a pocket fold, a button flap combination, or a hook and loop system of attachment.

The compartment 12 ideally would be circular in shape but could also be rectangular. The circular compartment shape would be ideal for storing portable CD players.

The reflector 16 would be attached to the shirt 10 in a position that would be centered between the sleeves of the shirt 10.

The embodiment of FIG. 1a-b, can further comprise of a pair of sleeve reflectors 14 attached to the end of the sleeves of the shirt 10. The sleeve reflectors 14 are an added safety feature of the shirt 10.

FIG. 2a-b show another embodiment of the current invention. The embodiment of FIG. 2a-b differ from embodiment of FIG. 1a-b only because of the placement of the compartment 12 and the reflector 16.

FIG. 3a-b shows another embodiment of the present invention. In this embodiment all of the principle elements remain the same, but the sport shirt further comprises of a key compartment 18 and a cellular phone compartment 20 that are attached to the shirt 10. The key compartment 18 is also made of a stretchy material and is attached to the shirt 10 on one of the sleeves of the shirt 10.

This invention is used by an individual by first placing the shirt on the individual, then housing any devices to be carried during the individuals exercise routine within the inventions compartments, and then exercising.

With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, material, shape, form, function and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships with those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specifications are intended to be encompassed by the present invention.

Therefore, the forgoing description is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
