Hi, I bought the 7D together with a 50mm f/1.7 and the cool 17-35 mm f/2.8-4 D. They offered me the vertical grip but even if I had to pay it, I would. The grip is just great for several reasons:
- double battery life (ok, you can have a spare battery in your pocket too so it's not the #1 feature)
- it makes the 7D easier to handle, especially with an heavy objective
- all the needed controls are duplicated on the grip (2 wheels, shutter, AF/MF, AEL, AF Area) so shooting vertically is very easy. You also have a global on/off switch for these controls

To answer your question, the grip is in plastic but seems solid, it is a must have.

A bemol: I had to change my 1st vertical grip after 3 weeks cause it makes my 7D doing strange things, like changing settings and so on. No problem anymore with the new one
