Which bag is it?

THIS ONE, there are 4 sizes, it's the 46 size.

That looks like it belongs to a stable box like from Pelican. It's just a lens divider. Of course, it will also work as bag. However, I would be cautious with the grip and the zipper as they are most likely not designed to carry that burden.

Zhe case for this divider is this one:


Best regards


My bag is not a divider, and it doesn't look to fit that case. Where would the handle for my bag go in that case? Just pressed up against the inside? That's just dumb, the Vanguard 46 i got isn't just foam, the outer shell is thicker and more rigid than any of my other 4 bags, in fact it's the most rigid case i have owned yet.

If you look at the hard case, it shows foam only inside, and you can cut your own shapes out to fit your gear. It also says nothing in the description about being a hard case for the bag i bought. Just because they are both a version 46 does not mean they go together, they simply have a 46F hard case, and a 46 soft case.

If I open your link it is called: Vanguard Divider Bag 46

I know these kind of bags to be used inside more stable units.

However, if your bag works for you the way you use it, it is fine. The only intention of my posting was to avoid that one day you have problems as the zipper gets damaged or the grip does not hold the burden anymore. Most of the time the equipment at an amount that your bag can carry costs lots of money and a loss or damage should not happen.
