A duffle bag, duffle bag or kit bag is usually a large flat bag with either a top closed with a zipper, or a drawstring closure. In most cases a duffel bag is utilized by commissioned officers in the army and for traveling, sports and recreational by civilians. In some cases a buffer can be used as a simple carry-on bag by taking it on an airplane. This type of bag comes in a variety of colors and designs. The materials used to create buffers vary from cloth to synthetic fiber.
A duffle bag is commonly utilized as a carry on bag by those who travel regularly, but may not be fully deployed. It is typically smaller than your average travel bag because its size is much less when compared to its overall size. Due to the size of the main compartment, most duffle bags have a number of smaller pockets on the outside that are used for various purposes including; compartments for small items, such as pens, a notepad, a small camera, first aid kit, snacks, keys, cell phones, a small handheld compass, another pair of sunglasses, and can even include a pocket for keys, cash, or other personal items. Most of these pockets will also have a place to hold smaller gear items.
Outside of the main compartment of the duffle bag there will be several smaller pockets which will have two or more small strap straps or webbing to secure them around the outside of the main compartment. Two of these straps will attach to the inside of the front pocket or main compartment and one will attach to the inside of the back pocket or main compartment. The smaller straps will secure smaller items that are not wanted in the main compartment while the larger straps will secure the larger gear items that are needed in the duffle bag. Many people like to have things such as maps, gloves, water, first aid kit, or other items hanging from the large straps in the main compartment of the duffle bag.
Another feature that is found on many duffle bags are the backpack straps. These types of straps can be found almost anywhere, but they are most often found on the Ykk brand of duffle bags. While the Ykk backpack straps will probably never really be seen on anyone else’s bag, they do make the bag very sturdy and durable. The backpack’s straps will hold the gear securely in place without having the straps get loose and start to shake, scrape, or vibrate while the bag is in use. This means that no matter what the use of the bag will be the backpack straps will stay securely in place without any problems.
Strap Hangers are also available with some of the newer models of bags. These straps will either have an extra attachment for a shoulder strap or a cross strap, so that the duffle bag can be held more securely while the straps are used. This makes the duffle bag much more stable to carry and much more comfortable to carry.
A final feature that is found on a good number of these bags is the ability to be zipped together. This will allow the owner to create a very efficient set of travel bags by taking the duffle bag apart and putting all of the pieces together. This makes it very easy for new travelers to create a quick and easy set of bags that can be put together and used at once. Creating a quick and easy set of travel bags is great for people who need to pack light when traveling. Many times new travelers will create their own set of travel gear to take along with them on trips, but they often find that the sets they make are too heavy and bulky to carry all of the time. By taking all of the individual pieces apart and putting them together in one efficient package, these travelers can create an efficient set of luggage that they can take everywhere.
