Thanks. This is a sling, so is it comfortable to bear?
also, the size is not that bulky for daily uses, right?

The extra strap makes a big difference, particularly if you ride a bike/motorcycle.
But more importantly - the shoulder straps should not be carrying the weight - the waist strap should be doing the carrying. This a common mistake that I made too. When I learned to adjust the waist strap to carry the load it made another large difference.
Mine contains: 30D body, 5DII body, 17-55, 24-105, TSE24, 100 macro, 2.0EX, closeup lens, extension ring set, three CPL's, six CF cards, angle viewer, both chargers, two spare batteries, remote release, both manuals, 5 in 1 reflector/diffuser, sensor cleaning fluid, sensor swabs, small DOF charts, and a small spare tripod head. My new one is a 302 and has a tripod attachment.
The advantage of a slingshot is that the gear can be accessed without setting the bag down - sure it takes a bit of juggling, but if you're in the field and everything is wet and/or muddy, and there is no handy bench, the SS works where nothing else will.
A bag with a single carrying strap is carried by one shoulder.
