Aafes Exchange - Cant buy gear

I understood that the exchanges for veterans would be restricted for purchasing uniform items. I see they don't allow me to purchase a DLATS duffel bag. This is crazy. What's the point of being able to shop on the exchanges? I see the same for certain boots. Depends on the boots you buy there. How is a duffel bag considered a uniform item? I see them selling at the surplus store brand new for 45 dollars, the DLATS ENHANCED DUFFEL bag. The PX sells them for 39 dollars tax free. So how is restricting an item used for travel a benefit to veterans? What's the point in allowing veterans to join the exchange when we get restricted to items beyond uniform wear? I can see not being able to purchase uniform items for wear but a duffel bag? I can buy duffel bags/sea bags all day long at the surplus store used for 9.99 in great shape. I have about 8. But I want to purchase the ENHANCED DUFFEL BAG at 39 bucks tax free at the exchange but they won't let me. Come on. Thanks for nothing.
