---QUOTATION---
What's realistic opposed to what's necessary from a practical gameplay standpoint are often very different.

Main weapon plus instantly accessible sidearm seems sensible.
I guess a secondary consideration is how much ammo can be found in the field for your favourite weapon, who the expected opponents are on each mission & how much would be exhausted fighting off small creatures.

If players are stampeded by doggies or rats it's going to require something quick & immediate judging by the numbers in the demos.

Toting a VSS plus 15 shot pistol seems reasonable when skulking about looking for other stalkers but these may prove inadequate in a running street battle with a squad of soldiers so can the player pick up a fallen AK & use that to conserve VSS ammo whilst carrying his main gun over the shoulder using a strap ?

Has anyone actually seen the players inventory screen ?

Yes, there have been many screenshots of it.

And I think that the weight and bulk limitations may serve to adequately balance the possible weapon configurations, while allowing the players to decide what is important.

I think we've seen a glimpse of the inventory in the clans and tradeing videos. The STALKER goes up to another STALKER and they trade. A screen that look like the inventory comes up.

2 weapons is not really that realistic. In the american army in the 60s, I don't think that a sidearm for every pissant grunt is realistic... however, with a combination of 2 and 3 point harnesses, holsters, etc, one can have way more than two within reach. The question would be if you really want all that crap swaying around on you.

Weight is one factor, having only 2 hands is another.

With this in mind I imagine it's only practical to wander about carrying one main weapon a holstered sidearm.

I wonder if it's possible to carry a secondary weapon like an SMG in the backpack just in case ?

A game like Vietcong is realistic in allowing only 2 weapons whilst Deus Ex has our hero's trenchcoat resembling an armoury .... does anyone know the players inventory limitations ?

The faq and website say that there will be no character stats to improve, and you won't go up levels- so I would say no.
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
