I'm a big fan of North Face products, and this roller bag is no exception. I just got it in the mail (which shipped quickly as always) so I haven't had the chance to fly with it yet. So far it looks clean, somewhat sturdy (but not the sturdiest), and has a quality pull up handle which is it's beat feature I believe. I hate pull up handles that don't pull up easily, or don't look into place easily, or just feel flimsy. This bag's pull up handle has it all, plus it's a nice contrasting color.
I'm very happy with it and I believe you will be too. If price is an issue, perhaps the lifetime warranty helps.
