Yup, it's more like a small photo backpack turned sideways and worn on your front.  

And yet, judging from the manufacturer's description, it must still be hard to stuff the poster's entire "standard carry" equipment list inside.

No, to both.

Well, the manufacturer's website shows a 24-105L and a 70-200/2.8, along with a medium-sized prime lens or a flash, fitting in the bag. From your earlier posts, it seems you carry both those two lenses and a flash, plus a fisheye and a 35/1.4 prime lens, along with 2 teleconverters, accessories, micro tripods, AND a water bottle. Maybe it isn't such a tight fit, but it sure looks like a trick to pack...

Of course it doesn't look like a backpack to the "30 lb backpack in high school" crowd. But to the rest of us it really does.

I can fit four of them in a regular sized backpack.

Maybe that says more about your definition of "regular sized backpack" than it does about the smallness of the waist pack.  

My 3rd grader's book bag?

The water bottle doesn't fit until the camera comes out. The TC's fit between the camera and lens and the small lenses fit on the side opposite the flash. The small accessories fit in the front pocket. I carried this exact system around Disney for 6 days straight.
