Roger, UK –
I use one for sea kayaking. I’m delighted with it.
Graham Uney, Wild UK blog –
I was actually very impressed with this map case. I’ve used another leading brand of map case for a number of years, and have always thought that nothing could beat it. A good quality map case is durable (many become brittle in the cold, then split), has a non-slip surface for ease of taking compass bearings, and is easy to fold in half with the map inside for stuffing in a jacket pocket. The Kaituna has all of those features. It’s made from a lovely soft, rubbery plastic, so is very usable in all weather conditions, and when used with a compass it has sufficient ‘grip’ that the compass baseplate doesn’t slide along the surface. One very minor addition I would like to see Aquapac make would be a little tab to make opening the case easier – the two sides of the opening tend to stick together a little too well, it’s a bit like trying to pull apart a plastic shopping carrier bag. The seal is a roll-over Velcro flap, which is a well tried and tested method. This is all and all a good solution to keeping your map dry and usable throughout your hill walks.
