With wraps you have the added benefit of it going over both shoulders so there isn't as much strain on just 1. They are more comfortable for longer jaunts. IMO they're easier to get a baby into a back carry and you can carry a baby higher on your back.
Pouches are the easiest of all to use, fold up really small and can fit into the smallest bag/purse/pocket. They are great for quick trips.
Ring slings you have the ability to adjust them to fit different sizes. Quicker to use than wraps. There are also the mesh ring slings used in pools, at lakes and in the shower.
ABC's are quicker than wraps while having some of the options of wraps. They're less bulky than wraps and ring slings.
I use my wraps for going on walks, trips the zoo's, museums, etc. I use the pouch and ring slings for short trips while shopping or to put my dd to sleep at home. My ABC's haven't arrived yet so I''m not sure when I'll use them but I'll find ways. This is probably just me being an oddball, but I like having different slings so I can color co-ordinate too.
