Comments: We mentioned Walking Rock Farm’s sling in another section, but their hip carrier is the company’s biggest seller. The Hip Baby comes in three types of fabric: Inprints, which is a lycra knit with heat reducing lining; Cooler II, a waterproof fabric with breathable lining; and Air Flow, a special water proof athletic fabric. Walking Rock touts their strap for its length and no-slip padding. A few readers complain the strap digs into their necks, despite the padding. The Hip Baby adjusts pretty much the same way all-hip carriers work with a backslide adjustment. All in all, this is a good choice among hip carriers.

Rating: B+
