Ruggard Triumph 35 Sling Bag: Anyone have one?

Ruggard Triumph 35 Sling Bag PGB-235B B&H Photo Video

I'm in need of a new DSLR bag. I have 2 sling bags already, but the Pentax one is too small, and the AmazonBasics Sling bag that I have is also too small for me now. I need to be able to fit K-5ii, grip, 4 lenses, and additional accessories.

I came across this one and it has really good reviews and it looks like it will fit everything I mentioned, though sometimes its hard to tell based on pictures.

I really like the Kata KT DL-3N1-22, however my biggest gripe with that bag is that the camera, when in the bag, is only protected by the padding on the flap that opens up, whereas the Ruggard opening is more on the top and thus the side pads the camera when it's in-bag (Not sure if the side of the Ruggard is any thicker than the opening flap of the Kata).

I just wanted to see if anyone owns the Ruggard and had some feedback.

I just bought my first sling bag-- I'm not recommending it for your needs because it isn't a large bag. Mine is the Pacsafe Camsafe Venture V16 Camera Slingpack. It has all these security features for travel, and it is really a small bag with the common and convenient side zipper for access to a small camera section for camera with lens and 2 or 3 limited lenses-- or one big lens. Then it has plenty of extra room for some clothes, a 13" laptop, and organizer pocket etc.

I hiked 6 miles with it just to see and it was OK for that, but I was sore afterwards.

What I wanted to add was this question:

Does a large sling pack make sense? Once you start adding serious weight and bulk isn't a backpack with internal frame and a waist belt or a fanny pack a better idea?

Edit: Nevermind. Found my answer. Didn't see the video at first.

I see the camera in the "suspension system" is at an angle, and there is another lens under that. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but can you fit a camera with a long lens in that suspension system instead of having one sitting underneath? More specifically, would a K-3 w/grip and DA300* fit in there?
