Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to an exercise pant, and more particularly to an exercise pant including a resilient or cushioning member for softly engaging with and supporting and cushioning the buttocks and the genitals of the user.

2. Description of the Prior Art

Typical exercise pants have been developed for the users of the exercisers, particularly the riders of the cycle exercisers, and comprise a trouser or pant body made of resilient or cushioning materials for resiliently and snugly attaching onto the buttock portion of the user.

For example, U.S. Pat. No. Des. 370,552 to Erwin et al. discloses one of the typical exercise pants for resiliently and snugly attaching onto the buttock portion of the user.

However, the typical exercise pants have no pads or cushioning members for engaging with the buttocks and/or the genitals of the user and for protecting the buttocks and/or the genitals of the user such that the buttocks and/or the genitals of the user may feel hurt after long term of riding exercises.

The present invention has arisen to mitigate and/or obviate the afore-described disadvantages of the conventional cushioning problems for the exercise pants.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The primary objective of the present invention is to provide an exercise pant including a resilient or cushioning member for softly engaging with and supporting and cushioning the buttocks and the genitals of the user.

In accordance with one aspect of the invention, there is provided an exercise pant comprising a pant member including a chamber formed therein, and including two tubular members, and including a carrying portion formed and located between the chamber and the tubular members of the pant member, and a cushioning device attached to the carrying portion of the pant member and including a planar member having a front portion and a rear portion, and including two cushioning elements attached to the rear portion of the planar member, and including a slot formed and located between the cushioning elements, and including a cushioning article provided on the front portion of the planar member and having a recess formed in the cushioning article.

The cushioning device includes an upper cover layer and a lower cover layer attached onto the planar member for stably retaining and securing the planar member between the upper cover layer and the lower cover layer.

The cushioning article is separated from the planar member and secured to the planar member with stitches, weldings or the like.

The cushioning device includes two flaps attached to side portions of the planar member for engaging with the groin portion of the user, and for protecting and preventing the groin portion of the user from scrubbing the seats of the cycle exercisers.

Further objectives and advantages of the present invention will become apparent from a careful reading of the detailed description provided hereinbelow, with appropriate reference to the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

Referring to the drawings, and initially to FIGS. 1-3, an exercise pant in accordance with the present invention comprises a trouser or pant body or member 10 including a chamber 11 formed therein for receiving the buttock portion of the user, and including two tubular members 12 for receiving the leg portions of the user, and including an attaching or supporting or carrying portion 14 formed and located between the chamber 11 and the tubular members 12 of the pant member 10 for attaching or supporting or carrying a resilient or cushioning device 20.

The cushioning device 20 includes an inner planar member 21 made of resilient or cushioning or spongy materials, two resilient or cushioning elements 22 attached to or engaged in the rear portion 23 of the planar member 21 for softly engaging with and supporting and cushioning the buttocks or the buttock portion of the user, and includes a slot 24 formed and located between the cushioning elements 22 for air circulation purposes, and includes a resilient or cushioning article 25 attached or provided on the front portion 26 of the planar member 21 and having a recess 27 formed in the cushioning article 25 for receiving or supporting and protecting the genitals of the user.

The cushioning device 20 may further include an upper cover layer 28 and a lower cover layer 29 attached or engaged onto the upper portion and the lower portion of the planar member 21 and/or the cushioning elements 22 and/or the cushioning article 25, and made of such as fabric or woven or non-woven cloth materials and attached or secured to the planar member 21 and/or the cushioning elements 22 and/or the cushioning article 25 with stitches or the like. As shown in FIGS. 4 and 5, the cushioning article 25 may be separated from the planar member 21 (FIG. 4) and secured to the planar member 21 with stitches 30 (FIG. 5), weldings 31 (FIG. 2) or the like.

Referring again to FIG. 2, the cushioning device 20 may thus include a planar member 32, two resilient or cushioning elements 33 attached to or engaged in the rear portion 34 of the planar member 32 for softly engaging with and supporting and cushioning the buttocks or the buttock portion of the user, and includes a slot 35 formed and located between the cushioning elements 33 for air circulation purposes, and includes a resilient or cushioning article 36 attached or provided on the front portion 37 of the planar member 32 and having a recess 38 formed in the cushioning article 36 for receiving or supporting and protecting the genitals of the user. As shown in FIG. 1, the cushioning device 20 may be engaged into the chamber 11 of the pant member 10 and secured to the carrying portion 14 of the pant member 10 with weldings or stitches 39 or the like.

As shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, the cushioning device 201 may further include two flaps 40 attached to the two side portions of the planar member 32 and secured to the side portions of the planar member 32 with weldings or stitches 41 or the like for engaging with the groin portion of the user, and for protecting and preventing the groin portion of the user from scrubbing the seats of the cycle exercisers.

In operation, as shown in FIG. 1, the cushioning elements 33 may be provided for softly engaging with and supporting and cushioning the buttocks or the buttock portion of the user, and the slot 35 formed and located between the cushioning elements 33 may be provided for air circulation purposes and for preventing the groin portion of the user from being heated, and the recess 38 of the cushioning article 36 may be provided for receiving or supporting and protecting the genitals of the user and for preventing the groin portion of the user from being scrubbed by the seats of the cycle exercisers.

Accordingly, the exercise pant in accordance with the present invention includes a resilient or cushioning member for softly engaging with and supporting and cushioning the buttocks and the genitals of the user.

Although this invention has been described with a certain degree of particularity, it is to be understood that the present disclosure has been made by way of example only and that numerous changes in the detailed construction and the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed.
