A Great Carry-on
I fly a lot and this bag is really working for me. The handle is long. You don't kick the bag when walking briskly thru terminals. The wheels roll smoothly with almost no resistance on hard surfaces. There are a reasonable number of pockets (4) so you can be organized but not have to search a dozen places. It's fit in every plane in the US with space to spare so far (about 15 flights), but it might be a little big for Europe. I haven't had to check it yet so I can't say much about abuse resistance, but I haven't babied it and it still looks new. It will be all I hoped for if it hold up like my other North Face gear.
