軍用裝備袋的由來與歷史

The origin and history of military equipment bags

Duffel bags, duffle bags, or tool bags are large bags made of natural or synthetic fabric (usually canvas) that have historically used a drawstring for the top closure. Duffel bags are generally used for non-commissioned officers in the military, as well as civilians for travel, sports and entertainment. When used by sailors or marines, the duffel bag is called a seabag . The open structure and lack of rigidity of the suitcase make it suitable for carrying sports equipment and similar bulky items.

Duffle bags are often confused with hoop handle hard bottom zipper bags, also commonly called gym bags.
However, duffel bags have a much longer history than many realize.
In fact, these unique travel bags are nothing new. They have been used in one way or another since the 15th-16th centuries.

The fabric once used to make such a sturdy overnight bag originally came from the Belgian town of Duffel, hence the name. While the spelling has changed over the years, its origins have not. The tightly woven cloth was soon exported to countries such as Portugal and Spain, and the cloth originally known as canvas was used to repair sails on ships and was soon used to make sea bags - eventually dubbed duffle bags - due to its durability And durability has become very popular for its ability to withstand the elements.

However, duffel bags were primarily used during World War II and the term was first mentioned by EE Cummings, a poet who also worked as an ambulance driver in Europe. He wrote in detail about his experiences in war and the military, actually using the word duffel bag. The original duffle bags were rather crude, with brass eyelets, and the canvas bags were long and cylindrical and fastened using rope as a drawstring.

 

By World War II, "doughboy" duffel bags had become an important source of transportation and mobility for weapons, equipment, and weapons. This bag is the perfect solution for carrying military kits, storing supplies and medical aid, making them vital on the battlefields of World War II.

By the end of the war, these Duffle travel bags had become commonplace in civilian life in the United States, Australia, and Europe. At the time, the often-used canvas duffel bag had become a common part of fashion and practicality. After the war, they became commonly held as military surpluses meant they could be bought for pennies; soon people would start getting this versatile, stylish Duffle bag for civilians.
