Luggage
V-3 carpet valise or case. A lower middle class version of luggage suitable for a man or woman. Carries a fair amount of stuff but still rather small, in the photos it is filled with two regular bath towels. Round about 15" long, 6" high and 5" deep. The straps are riveted to the bottom and are held in place on the top by the handle. Brass buckles on the adjustable straps keep the bag securely closed. Will hold your personal grooming supplies, a change of underwear, shirt and socks. A good carryall for the items you want to keep close to hand. Designed like the leather bags the wealthier people had their servants carry for them but made of cloth to be affordable, a variation on the general theme of carpet bags I have not seen this style offered anywhere else so it is a good chance to grab a period correct item that you won't see everywhere you look.
Price on this item is just $82 (shipped rolled up and forced into a bag).

V-5 carpet grip. A lower class version of luggage suitable for a man or woman. Carries a small amount of stuff, in the photos it is filled with one regular bath towel. Round about 9 1/2" long, 9 1/2" high and 2" deep at the base. Closes with a single button.  Will hold your personal grooming supplies, a change of underwear, shirt and socks if you roll them up tight. A good carryall for the items you want to keep close to hand. This is the last step down before you get to a bit of cloth rolled up and tied to a stick or a discarded sack. To be used by the poor that want to try to keep some appearance of civility. If you are poor enough for this as your luggage then it will carry about all you can afford to carry.
Price on this item is just $37 (shipped rolled up and forced into a bag)

V-10 Shawl, Coat, Blanket Strap
This is a very early type of luggage being a pair of straps to wrap around your bundle, a handle and a shoulder strap with the addition of a small valise attached to the handle making it more useful than a simple strap set. A great number of variations on this theme would be patented during the 19th century this version is fairly basic. The 44" blanket straps will hold two full size thick blankets (not included) and the valise will hold one full size modern bath towel. Shoulder straps can be removed and at the last hole are 49" and can be adjusted down to 40".
Price is $102

V-10 extra info.
This would be good for an officer, or civilian (man or woman) but I wouldn't want to march very far with two big blankets. For a traveler it can carry your small items, a blanket or shawl and an overcoat or any other items you want to bundle up. As pictured you can sandwich the bag between two items or leave it on the outside where you can get to it easier. A very versatile item that was harder to make than I anticipated so if you want it you better buy it as I might not make another. I do plan to make some shawl straps in the future but the price will be nearly as high as this valise version. Middle to lower middle class, lower classes would just use a rope to get the same effect.
