I really want to like this. It's a beautiful show-piece but just not practical for how I know I use maps for my trips. I like to circle and write small notes on my maps for campsites and portages and this, being cloth that is much like a t-shirt, just isn't conducive to that. Also, being cloth, it doesn't hold folded form, like other "paper" maps that you're used to, so holding it up one-handed while you're trying to figure things out on the spot just doesn't feel right. Like I said, I really think this is done well, but I probably won't use them on an actual trip since it doesn't fit how I use my maps.
Nice map!!!!!!! I just wish it used the MGRS as well as lat / long. But in the end it is nice, well constructed, and easy to read.
Great detail, clarity, and material
Haven't field-tested it, so we shall see. So far so good.
Truly a great product. This is not a gimmick, but a tool ready to use and rely on.This will have much more longevity than a traditional map. Our family cabin is on this map, so I know the area well and can attest to the accuracy of portages, campsites, roads, burn areas, etc.. I was super impressed this map even included Ski Trails as well (in this case the Central Gunflint System). I was anticipating needing to be gentle with this, worrying about the print smearing, cracking, or fading. After seeing it though I am not hesitant at all to throw this in my bag whether I think I'll need it of not, it is meant to be well used! I love how the elevation is displayed and really draws your attention to palisades and interesting features on a lake. It is a very readable map with good coloration and strong contrasts. Eventually I'm sure they will add more depth contours to lakes, but really who doesn't spend most of their time casting the shore of an unknown lake anyway (or have a depth finder with if you really cared that much...). Great job, I look forward to getting the complete set when we do the Border Route!
