getting them in the right spot is hard for me.

Doesnt help that Henry's sells bags that have been tampered with. sometimes swear they have been used. (My Lowe Pro sling looked good. Later found a 32 gig card someone had left in it.)

Howard on another forum said he placed paper on the wall of the bag, placed the partition and slid the paper out, so the Velcro would stick.

what do you do?

I do the tab fold over and stick the divider in place one side at a time too. It does drive me nuts at times! I may give the paper a try.

Thanks for the thread. The paper idea sounds like the solution. They are certianly a love hate thing. The thing I hate the most is when a bag doesn't have velcro everywhere. You also never have the right size for your needs.

I have visions of some child in a factory in Asia assembling bags/partitions quickly. Having no trouble at all. Meanwhile I struggle. And I have for years.
Wonder what the factory method is?

I fold the partition in half, attach one side, then the other.

Someone else might wonder what the big deal is. I am a bagaholic. I have way too many bags.
When I had a photo store, working with a bag slung over my shoulder was the norm. I had two Nikon F3HP's with motor drives.
A LowePro shoulder bag carried whatever else I needed.
I worked fast; had to. Small business. Seldom had a second shooter. Portraits weddings sports photography. Profitable.
I still want to work fast. One camera out; another stored. Lenses in the shoulder bag.
Domke. Billingham. LowePro. Thank Tank. Tenba.
Shooter's bags. Not storage bags.

So lots of moved partitions. And I don't do it well.

I usually combine partitions from several bags in whatever I'm using (f-stop bags mostly these days). Largely because standard partitions are great for DSLRs but terrible for smaller
Mirrorless gear.

I don't really like super tiny bags that only hold camera gear either. So I like to find a happy medium between appropriate partitioning in part of the bag and room for other stuff elsewhere.

mattia that used to be my practice too. However, we have a small car. And I carry breathing apparatus too. That is why I have a lightweight system and smaller bags now.
Otherwise I would have stayed with my dslr
