BOB, pioneer of the Hummer-style stroller, goes ultralight with its 20.4-pound Ironman jogger model. Mountain bike-style suspension minimizes sidewalk bumps, while quick-release wheels and a clever folding design make it easy to stash in the trunk of virtually any car--sorry, no Hummer required. $349. bobgear.com.

Premaxx Baby Carrier
The Premaxx Baby Carrier blends the function and comfort of a dad-friendly sling-type carrier with the DNA of a Sherpa. And, as baby grows, it converts to a hip carrier. Rugged construction and expedition styling make an afternoon in the park as gratifying as an assault on Denali's north face. $50. jjcoleusa.com
