Two of my close friends were sub sailors in the 1980s-90s, so when i spotted a box of these at the surplus shop, I took picturers and sent them.  One friend was excited to see it. Still have not heard from the other yet. So I grabbed three of them, one for each of us.  And so I've started the Christmas shopping way earlier than I have ever done before. Figure I'll gag gift them by sticking some odds and ends in them.  Some old socks, maybe a bra, and plastic fish.  Any old submariners here that could clue me in on something a fellow sub sailor would get a laugh out of?   Anyway, it's an interesting and probably useful item, and the first sub specific item in the collection.   

Enjoy!

Some intersting suggestions. Thanks!

Topdcnut, what type of ships were you on that you used these?

It seems from your, and friend Frank's brief comments, these things were well liked.

First the Sub tender USS Hunley then I may have brought it along to the Davis. We never used them for laundry, by the time you stuff one pair of pants and a shirt they are full. You would keep things in them that you would want while in your rack that would not fit under your mattress. 

If you get any more I sure would like a couple. (I have a few sub friends)

When I was on the USS Groton back in the 70's we used to call them bunk bags and they attached to little clips on the bulkhead in your rack, put everything in it but laundry.
