First of all, I'm a big fan of slings.  I have a Baby KTan and a SevenSlings brand currently.  This summer, I'm going on a trip to Ireland and Scotland, and want to use a sling instead of a stroller on tours, but my current slings aren't quite good enough since only one of them can wear on the back and you have to have another person help get the kid in.  Enter the mystery product:

 

My mom was on a hike and saw a baby carrier that one could set on the ground and it acted like an infant seat.  The baby could be placed in facing either direction and then worn on the back.  I would love to buy this product, but I haven't seen it.  Does anyone know of a drop-in style baby carrier that can work like a seat on the ground and doesn't require the assistance of another person for back wearing?

Maybe it's this? http://www.amazon.com/kokopax-city-carrier-Kokopax-Gumdrops/dp/B002W5VDGG

I don't know if I would like wearing that for long periods of time but it seems that some people have given it good reviews.

I like to use a wrap or mei tai or our Bamberoo on my back and they do not require anyone helping to get the baby up there.   They are just soft and comfortable and I don't know if I would like the frame being there.

What carrier are you using on your back right now?You said you have a baby K'tan and one of the SevenSlings?  The baby K'tan  should not be used for a back carry because it is made of stretchy material.

Your trip sounds awesome!
