Certainly does not seem easy to break. Stays put just fine for me, actually quite hard to get off the way the paddle clips on. I find it quite comfortable, but I'm sure that might depend on where you try to wear it. It will stick out further than many other types of iwb or owb holsters but I like it. I wore it for several days camping a couple of weeks ago. I also use it for OC and to the outdoor range.
