Q2 + Handgrip fit in a Billingham 72?

Just curious if anyone has tested this out. It looks like the only dimension that's questionable is the new height of the camera with the grip. I think the rest of it should fit ok. Just looking for confirmation before I order one..

With the Leica lens hood on, the 72 is tight on every side.

I use the 72 with a Leica Q, grip, Thumbs-up and with the lens hood on at all times. I realise the Q and Q2 aren't exactly the same dimensions but they are very close. I also use the Leica loop with the grip. I find this to be an excellent setup as the loop enables me to remove the Q from the 72 very quickly and it's ready to go. I would like to add that I find the loop to be a surprisingly secure way of holding the camera.

I have the same setup, grip and finger loop and i'm very happy with it as i never use neck straps and sometimes hold the camera for a very long time in my hand.
The grip and the finger loop gives me such a good grip that it's virtually impossible to drop the camera, except i fall with her to the ground.
To be honest, i never dropped a camera, but either a analog with grip or a digital with built-in grip gives a much better hold,
but adding the finger loop makes it even more ergonomical and safe.
