Map Case recommondations?

Post by Kirsten » Sun Jul 16, 2017 8:35 pm


I just damaged my second Ortlieb Map Case this week. Same issue as the first one. When opening the velcro it ripped the plastic at the side. Ok, I was rushing a bit this time, but the same happened with the first and with it I was careful.

I have not the option to print out maps and to laminate them, so I need a map case. Normally I use OS maps, so the map case should be fine with this format without having an awkward folding of the map. I had another map case after I damaged my first Ortlieb, but the measurement was not fine for the maps and needed awkward folding and it was leaking, too.

Anyone with recommondations for a map case? Need something which can be attached easily on the decklines and where an OS map can get in and out without stressing the map case.

Axel pack map case. Tough, versatile, takes up to A3 and probably could double as a sail or storm shelter...

Sea Kayaking Cornwall sell it

Axel pack is the only one I use and trust.
