The olive-drab case, made of heavy-duty duck, could be unzipped, opened up and laid flat for packing. It had hangers, a snap partition for shoes, external pockets secured by big zips, and stiffeners on the top and bottom to hold its shape.

The U.S. army – which has always supplied its enlists with special containers, bag and kits for almost every purpose – first developed the bag in 1931. But it underwent many iterations before it became the sturdy, virtually waterproof B-4 bag that was adopted by U.S. pilots. It is still in use today, but the modern version is produced using nylon.
