Nautica designs appeal to me, I prefer their patchwork styles for boys to that of any other and I and my teenage son are both pleased with this one as well. Having said that, the colors in the quilt are more faded than the picture showed on my monitor. The reverse is a deep blue, but the patchwork side has a shabby chic quality of dimness, as in, the colors are not as crisp as I expected and the material was a bit stiffer than other Nautica quilts have been (at least, so far). So, those two features surprised me. Still like it well enough to use, though. If you like Nautica and are prepared, I don't think you will be disappointed.
I ordered this quilt for a guest room. We have 4 seasons in Minnesota and this quilt is perfect as a light cover on warm days and easily layers over a blanket or another light quilt when it's cooler. I love the muted colors. It makes my room look comfortable and welcoming. The quality of the quilt is excellent.
My six year old grandson now calls his room a "dorm room" with the addition of this quilt and sham. The colors are rich and subdued, as appropriate for a little boy as for a college student. It is well made and has already shown that it will be durable enough to last through all the bouncing and climbing on the bed that goes on. I am very pleased with this purchase.
