I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LUGGAGE TO ANYONE WHO TRAVELS A LOT AND WANTS EASY-ROLLING BAGS. THEY ARE SO SMOOTH WHEN MOVNG ALONG SIDE YOUR BODY, INSTEAD OF PULLING BEHIND, WHICH WAS WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. THE CASTERS ROLL VERY EASILY AND THAT ELIMINATES THE "TUGGING" AND PULLING BEHIND AND TRIPPING OTHERS NEAR YOU. THE FABRIC IS ALSO VERY TIGHT-KNIT AND TOUGH. I HAVE JUST USED THEM FOR A HOLIDAY TRIP, AND THEY MADE MY TRIP SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE. THEY ALSO STAND OUT WHEN LOOKING FOR YOUR PIECES ON THE LUGGAGE CONVEYER. I HAVE THE BLUE AND ORANGE, AND MADE MATCHING ORANGE TAGS THAT FIT RIGHT UNDER THE HANDLES VERY NICELY SO AS NOT TO BE TORN OFF BY THE LUGGAGE HANDLERS. ALL IN ALL, VERY NICE, LIGHTWEIGHT, EASY ROLLING, TIGHT-WOVEN, ROOMY LUGGAGE. GREAT PRICE, TOO!
I could not recommend. Took my first trip and my suitcase handle pretty much fell off. Contacted Nautica and they replaced. Well two trips later, same thing is happening. Not worth my time to return again. I can say it's pretty but that's it. Will never by Nautica again.
A complete and utter waste of $$. I bought this nice looking (that's about it) luggage set in May 2014 and after our first trip to Jamaica the same month, I started noticing some problems. Fast forward to May 2015 (3rd time using it)... the luggage fell apart. I do not consider ourselves travelers to say the wear and tear was expected. Absolutely not. I've had underwear that lasted longer than this sugar honey ice tea. Thankfully, I got the warranty and overstock refunded the entire purchase price. If you get it, make sure you buy the warranty as well.
After struggling with luggage that does not have spinners, I finally decided it was time to buy luggage to help maneuver through airports! Nautica Rhumb is a perfect set being expandable. Have another Nautica piece that I like, but need the spinners - makes travel so much easier! Looking forward to my next trip!
