If you're always going to be with someone who doesn't mind assisting you with putting it on, go for it. But if you are going to be by yourself ever, or are breastfeeding, I wouldn't waste my money on it. Safety Very difficult to put on properly while holding your baby, puts you at risk of accidentally dropping child while trying to get them in. If you have help it would probably be fine. Parents' Comfort As long as the straps are all lying flat it is pretty snug and comfortable. Ease of Use Very poor in my opinion. You tie it around your hips, and then pick up your baby upright and pull it up behind them. Then, while holding your baby in place with one hand, you have to try to cross the straps over your back (and have them lie flat or it won't be comfortable) and pull them around to tie at the front, all without dropping your kid. Then you continue wrapping it around your body and tie it at the back. The straps are pretty short to do this. Durability Very good strong durable fabric!
