Should I pay off my student debt or keep investing?

I'm 25 – have about $25k in student loan debt. My interest rate is about 4-5%. I make about $70k a year and have a pretty stable job. I also have about $17k invested in the market – mostly VTI and other ETF's.

I find myself torn between wanting to just get rid of my student loan debt – and thinking that it's way better to let my money grow and just pay the debt off over 10-15 years. No credit card debt or anything like that.

Thoughts? Positives / negatives? Mostly just trying to get some insight.
