Best gift ever!
I ordered this wall map for my husband last Christmas (2020). It was hands down the best present ever. I ordered the 5 grommets across the top, no lamination, and included the fish species chart. The map is beautiful. The colors are nice, the writing is crisp, and the grommets are well spaced. If your map will be near a window or breeze, I would recommend the top and bottom grommets to secure it. I was initially concerned the fish species chart would cover some of the BWCA, but it does not. It is so nice to have to map out which fish can be found in which lakes! This map has brought so much joy talking about old trips, planning new trips, and is most definitely a conversation starter! If you are hesitating due to the price, let this review be the tipping point. This map is worth every penny. We did have one issue with one of the corner grommets ripping the map (slightly), but True North was quick to send a brand new map! I was highly satisfied with their service and how they stand behind their products. Great map, great company! Highly highly recommend.

This map is amazing. I bought this for my husband last Christmas. I ordered the map with the 5 top grommets and no dry erase lamination. We also got the fish species on it. It was easily his favorite present ever. The map is beautifully colored, and all the writing is crisp and clear. The fish species key is great, as you can see which fish are in which lakes. I was worried it would be in the way of some of the lakes, but it is on the Canadian side, and does not cover over anything else. We had some issues a month or two later with one of the grommet holes ripping and True North was quick to replace the whole map! I was impressed by their customer service and standing behind the quality of their product. Since then, we have had absolutely no issues with the map. If your map will be anywhere near an open window or a breeze, I would highly recommend getting the bottom grommets, as well. Highly highly recommend to any Boundary Waters fan. It’s fun to talk about old trips and plan new ones with this map! It also gets many comments and is most definitely a conversation starter! If you are on the fence about spending the money, let this recommendation be the tipping point. It’s worth every penny!
Super fast shipping - got my map within just a few days of ordering and it looks great! Easy to hang with the optional grommets. I love that I can write on it as I plan routes with the optional laminate. Time to start planning my next trip!
This was a housewarming gift for a friend who now has large walls and loves the bwca. The readability and fit are a delight.
