It all depends on what you want it for ...

Because it can easily be widened and loosened, it's hard to see that this has any kind of security function as a general luggage strap, although as many people have pointed out, it does make your luggage easier to spot on the conveyor belt.
However, I wanted it specifically to secure one item, my hard-shell guitar case, and so I measured it to the exact size I needed and first superglued then stitched the strap to be exactly the size I need. It therefore secures my item, which I couldn't do before. Since I will only ever use it with this guitar case, I'm happy with it.
So, it would be 5 stars if you want it fixed at a specific length for something you could not otherwise lock, as I do, and in that sense I'm completely happy with it.
If you wanted it to identify your luggage then only 1 star, as it's far too expensive an alternative to a small ribbon.
If you want it for security in general on a range of bags, then 1 star would be too many.
