So I was poking around the Timuk2 site - looking for a new diaper bag and I was immediately drawn to the dangling legs of the babe in the background. It's very hard to tell, but I'm wondering what kind of back carrier?

Can you tell I'm a babywearing junkie? :LOL

I'd guess an ABC

Yup its an ABC. The fabric goes under the kiddo's legs instead of around like in a back carry with a wrap.

Looks too narrow to be an ABC, plus I don't see the horizontal straps going underneath the babe's legs.
If I have to guess, probably a one-shouldered carrier like a hip carrier, pouch (with narrow fabric), or (less likely) a ring sling that's rotated to the back. Maybe you could email the site & see if they could hold a competition to guess the carrier for a free bag...

Its on the man in the background not the woman. His arm is covering where the lower straps would be.

I thought the EXACT same thing! I was thinking it was a wrap in rucksak when pictureing it on the woman. DUH

I love looking at their bags! I'm so tempted by them. I hadn't seen the graphic tote before. Now I'm going to dream of getting one. Thanks a lot!
