The duffel bag acquired considerable status in the surfer subcultures of post-WWII California and east coast Australia. In the case of California, this probably grew out of its use in the late 1940s and 1950s by ex-Navy personnel. In Australia its use became popular in the early 1960s. Carrying a duffel bag was synonymous to being (or pretending to be) a surfie. Australian duffel bags of the early 1960s were made of canvas and were usually light khaki or faded ochre in colour. Dispensing with the use of rope to pull the eyelets of the top together, the surfie would simply hold the throat of the duffel bag—containing towel, swimming trunks and other personal belongings in one hand and sling it over his shoulder (they were very rarely used by beach-going girls). Their use had died out by the mid-1960s.
