    You'd have to have two different pieces if you want the options that you describe. If you want to make two triangular sections, the partition would have to be the sqrt(length^2+width^2), i.e. longer than the length of the bag.

    You could compensate by having two pieces that either snap or velcro together in the middle to make longer/shorter pieces. I'd also put tabs on the ends and bottom that, again, either velcro or snap in

    Sam - I'll send you sketches when I get a chance.

    Like I said early in the thread....I'm probably going with the 4Cube, given the amount of space in the main bag.

    Heck...I;d go with the Hoffa, but Triplette'shad that one for years!

    Maybe. Dividing into 2 rectangular partitions requires a piece 48" long. Dividing into to right triangles would require a piece 49.5" long. I suspect the simplest way to deal with the extra 1.5 inches is to make the end tabs extra long and somewhat stiff. And remember the bag ends are probably not very stiff, so pushing them out or pulling them in a "tiny bit" will likely not effect functionality or durability.

    As opposed to Pipe-bag?

    Considering that some fencers fill their bags with lengths of PVC, that might be more appropriate. But it might provoke undue interest from the authorities, unless Purple has a medical license to prescribe the ganja.
