Never got the 6 panel. I bought the 4 panel because I don't usually need that many hand tools for a particular job. I usually like to work right off my truck but since that's probable only 20% of the time I load the veto XL on the cart that way I have have most of my hand tools right there. When I can't do either one of those I load what I think I'll need into the backpack and hand carry whatever else.
I was issued the 6 panel when I was working on SATCOM stations and it came with the tools pre packed.
After using that for a number of years I left that line of work and used Platt tool bags doing control system service work.
I have the Veto XL which I kept in the van for storage and the L which I used on a cart like you describe.
Working in the city where distance from the van was often significant I bought the 4 panel and loaded it with basics. Using a Klein 5200 series bag to carry extra tools needed.

I have the old pro pac model and it’s been great. I do commercial and light industrial and it’s carried everything I need. They make a slightly smaller pack “tech pac mc” that looks pretty interesting and I’ll probably get when mine finally kicks it. I previously had the Klein backpack and hated it. With the same amount of tools the Klein feels substantially heavier. The veto is a heavy bag, but it carries the weight really well
