UNITED STATES NAVY HEAVYWEIGHT CANVAS SEA BAG
Rothco's reproduction version of the USN Sea Bag made of Heavyweight Cotton Canvas , 26" X 36" , Pull Chord Closure
The Sea Bag is slightly larger than the standard military duffle bag which is 21" x 36" and also top load.
This bag is perfect for the WWII Naval impression.
The ditty bag was a smaller bag the sailor stowed his underwear in and it went inside the sea bag.
From records about the US Navy, we have determined that sailors in the US Navy began utilizing a canvas clothing bag sometime after the end of the War of 1812 and the year 1819 when a documented canvas bag was supposedly used.
