    The normal military issued duffel would work. If you are anywhere near a military town, you may be able to find some kinda of shop that sells used bags. Worked for me, and mine was full to the brim with everything they issued in Houston, plus some odds n ends stuff. Or you can breeze a google search, try to get one with backstrap as opposed to a single shoulder sling. Have you had any luck with WSI getting back to you?

    Try to get your hands on a sea bag, the ones they issue in the Navy, that might work for you. Plus you might be able to get the airline to wave the baggage fee if you can make them think you’re in the military, haha! If you want one, I have an extra one. Email me, firefightertravis@hotmail.com if you’re interested. Good luck!! When are you leaving? You going over with WSI?

    I don't have access to a military base. Does anyone have any duffel bags they aren't using or will a regular suitcase be okay to take?

    Just get a rolling duffel bag from Wal-Mart.

    Do a google search on duffle bags. Also one on military surplus stores in VA!
