solid. great deal.
Holds a lot more than I assumed. I used it to travel to Europe for 10 days and it did the trick. It was stuffed in various overhead compartments (it was fully stuffed and allowed on over 7 different planes flying 3 different airlines) and held together as expected from The North Face. The padding is good because it's not too much but still has a 1/2 inch or so of give. I'm 6' 4" and it adjusted to fit comfortably. Just buy it :)
