NanulsAt last a working map case

Voted 5/5

At last I have found a working map case. After years of using crap leaky plastic bags, that don't deliver what they say on the packet it’s refreshing to finally find something that does. This maps case spent a whole day in the pouring rain and didn't let a drop touch the map. Not even a little bit at the corners. Admittedly it did spend several hours in my pack while I was climbing but, it did last the walk in and walk off in some truly crap conditions. Another big plus is that it is very flexible while at the same time being tough enough to withstand being scraped along rocks and being stamped on. Which is at the end of the day, exactly what you want out of a map case.
