Original US WW2 Duffle bag dated 1943

The duffle bag has been a common item of issue for U.S. soldiers since 1943, during World War II.

Before that time, the drawstring closure barracks bag was used as the repository for items of clothing and equipment to be carried by the soldier or shipped ahead to meet him at a destination. The larger and sturdier Duffle Bag was a definite improvement over the former bags. The Duffle Bag has remained in use with only a few changes since its introduction.

The military (all branches: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard) issue the duffle bag to recruits at the reception depot as the primary way to carry the other items issued. The duffle bag is made from olive drab canvas in a cylindrical shape with a sewn in round bottom and open top with a circle of grommets. It has a cotton duck carrying handle and a shoulder strap that extends from the center of bag, ending in a snap hook. The size is about 36-38 inches long and 12-15 inches in diameter.
