Vanguard Up-Rise II 38 bag: what is this?

I scored a Vanguard Up-Rise II 38 bag for Christmas (thanks to my wife). At last I have a bag big enough to hold the K-1 + DFA 70-200 + DFA 15-30 + DFA28-105. However, there was one piece in the box that I can't identify. What is it for? (The oval pad with velcro patches at the ends.)

I thought at first it was extra padding for the shoulder strap, but it doesn't hold well, and is very uncomfortable, so that's not it. Any ideas?

I'd say it's a divider for inside the bag...

Ah yes, I think you're right bertwert. I was thrown by all the other dividers being bright orange. But this one is actually a vertical divider rather than horizontal, as shown here (centre segment). The velcro holds at the sides and the orange tabs at the ends are for pulling it away. Mystery solved.

Hi Paul, I also live in Melbourne and I almost got exactly the same bag for Christmas gift from my wife as well...
then I felt it's a bit too heavy and finally got a lighter and cheaper Manfrotto bag: Manfrotto NX Messenger Bag | Ted's Cameras, though quality is not as good as your Vanguard bag
Enjoy!

Yeh, the Manfrottos are not bad. It should serve you well.

I have a couple of Lowepros, a sling bag and a backpack, that do a good job with a small to medium kit. But neither could accommodate my new big FF lenses. I searched around quite a bit before settling on the Vanguard. It does the job at a much more reasonable price than the Domke etc.
