Overwhelmed by options-just buy and try?

We have the Baby Bjorn Sport and dd loves to be in it--esp. facing out, she loves to look around. I haven't been using it much for the past few months as at 16+ lbs it just puts too much strain on my shoulders. DH is now saying that she's getting too heavy for him too, and he'd like to get a frame backpack--that's great for him, but since I seem to carry her around on my hip (traditional mommy hold, I gather, lol) I'm thinking a ring sling type would be best. Am I just going to end up with another product that hurts my shoulders?
I've read through the posts here, and wow, there are a lot of options. I usually like to try stuff on before I buy it, but it seems most of these places are specialty stores or internet only. Is it worth hunting down a store to try the different styles on or should I just buy one and see how it works? I guess I'm just overwhelmed by the options and none of my friends have anything but Bjorns/Snuglis.
Right now I'm looking at ring slings and stretchy wraps (baby can't face forward in the Ergo). Any advice? If the Bjorn hurts my shoulders will a wrap/sling hurt too?
TIA for any advice,
