I have no idea which one to go for and there is no sling meet near me so can't try before I buy sad

Any recommendations?

Out of those 3, moby, although there are other brands which are cheaper and you can even make your own!

The Moby and Kari Me are essentially the same but the Kari Me has a bit more lycra in the mix and so is stretchier - I think this makes it less supportive and the Moby is easily stretchy enough anyway.

The close is slightly different as it has the rings, I just find that a proper stretchy wrap carrier is better than a hybrid, although lots of people like them and I think they're slightly quicker to put on.

So - Moby over Kari Me. Close if you value speed over comfort, although I doubt there's much in it.

Also you could go for a different kind of stretchy wrap (the same thing as a moby/kari me) like the Sa-Be wrap which is cheaper. There are quite a few different brands if you google stretchy wraps, too.

Oh, or you can make your own by buying 5 metres of jersey cotton and cutting it to 20" width. No sewing required!
