The woven cotton panel in the front adds nice support for the baby. The first moby D I purchased was the one with a brocade silk panel and it was too slick to feel secure (although it was pretty). I would definitely recommend the cotton panel instead. Also I think this is a carrier that is better for going around the house because when you tie it on the fabric touches the floor quite a bit. I am really happy with my purchase and I would recommend this product to family and friends.
The Moby is also quite comfortable. I've seen a TON of slings that hang across the torso on a strap, and/or hang down to the waist or lower - don't get one of those! They are very bad for your back! (Even if you don't get a Moby, I would never recommend one of those.) The Moby can be worn a number of different ways, which makes it easier to adjust it to you (body type, comfort, etc.) and your growing little one. Ours is a knit cotton fabric, like a t-shirt, but slightly heavier.
I will caution you to try out the Moby a couple of times before you try to put baby in it. (We found that an unopened 2liter soda bottle was the perfect weight & shape for practice.) However, it really only took me about 5 minutes to figure it out, and it helps that they include a little manual. They also have a website where you can watch a demonstration. Also, it can get a little warm in the Moby! There is a lot of fabric, which why it's so secure & comfortable, but it also means that you stay quite toasty.
The best part about it is that babies LOVE it. If Fidget is having a crabby day, won't go to sleep, etc. I just pop him in there and he is a happy (usually sleeping!) camper. We have used it several times just for the calming effect. It is perfect for those moms who are into "babywearing", as it promotes closeness AND security. My personal opinion is that it would be great for preemie Kangaroo Care - there is enough fabric to remain modest during the skin-to-skin time. Enjoy!
That being said, I did not find the wrap overwhelmingly difficult to use. There is a lot of fabric, but I think it was fairly manageable and might be worth trying for those in cooler climates. The quality was great, and it washed up in the machine perfectly.
