By the diagram, that looks like a small bag, but I can see it being useful. Mine is somewhat larger, but it doesn't do two bodies when both have lenses mounted. Well, maybe it can, I've never looked into rearranging the dividers for that. But not long enough to put the cameras lens-to-lens as in the picture above.
The bag is nice if you're taking one body and three lenses (or a fourth small lens). After a long hike, the weight can start nagging on your shoulder a little bit, but I usually avoid that by swinging it around to the front of me, which shifts the weight off my shoulder a bit. It's primarily made for left shoulder slinging, but it can be used on the right shoulder, although it feels a little odd to me.
