Subject: Why discourage blanket rolls?

Below is from the uniform standards:

Mexican War pattern
English P1856/1857 contract bag (I&C or Ross pattern) CS single-bag
Federal M1853/1855 double bag
French import hardpack
* A knapsack, while not required, is recommended over a blanket roll

Why is there a recommendation away from blanket rolls? Is this related to actual impression or some health/safety/welfare request?

Regarding headgear, what are the unique characteristics of the Shreveport and Houston Depot issued caps? Mr. Mobley had been making them, but does not appear to be doing such any longer. (He was charging way too little for what he created. That may be the reason why he appears not to be making them any longer.)
