I was just curious which hip carry is your favorite.  My DS is now old enough to be in a hip carry and we've only experimented with a few using our MamaBaby Threads wrap (just like a Moby)

Do you have any comments or suggestions on what is most comfortable for you?

My favorite hip carrier is a Scootababy.  It is awesome for hip carries, but it is limited to only hip carries.

I really like hotslings for hip carries, tho i think sadly they are outta business now.  I used it a ton with my toddler, because it's so easy and simple, plus it's small to have in the diaper bag, even when I forget to bring a "carrier".  I also tried hip carry several times with Ergo.  It's not my favorite cuz usually the shoulder strap ends up around my neck.  but since ergo is such a great carrier for front and back carries, I had it with me a lot and so it worked out.  So I wouldn't buy ergo just for the hip carry.
