I have a Lowepro that is a similar size to Jeff's - could even be the same model. Yes, you can fit a lot in, but you won't want to go huge distances with it as full as illustrated - camera bodies don't weigh much, but add in 2 or 3 L lenses, accessories and maybe your sandwich box in the outside compartment and it is HEAVY
A couple of weeks ago I went to a motor racing meeting at Silverstone in the UK - I was very glad that I took out my 24-105 F4L, 2 palm size videocams, the beanbag I use to sometimes balance them on and a bunch of accessories. By the time I'd finished walking round the circuit, what was left in there felt like a ton. Don't think my shoulders would have coped with the full load.
