*** I'm providing a review of the Stormshield map case (15.75 x 12.75). The reviews under this item are a little tricky because the three size options listed for this item actually refer to three distinct Granite Gear map cases. ***

I purchased the Stormshield map case (15.75 x 12.75) prior to a trip up to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA) with my wife. I've spent a lot of time in a canoe, but have normally been only one member of a group on such trips, and as such typically kept my map in an oversized zippered storage bag. Since all the navigation fell to me on this trip, I wanted a decent map case. I have a friend who purchased the Stormshield map case (15.75 x 12.75) a few years ago, and he was very pleased with it, so I decided to get my own.

I was not disappointed. The Stormsheld (15.75 x 12.75) did fit my Fisher maps just as described, and the hook and loop closure on the back kept things snug and dry. The straps were great for hanging it on the thwart in front of me, and I didn't need to worry either about rain or water dripping off my paddle as I switched from side to side. I kept my compass inside the case as well, so, when it was time to check my bearings I simply lifted up the bottom end of the case and took a look at the map and my compass heading. It was simple, and it removed any chance that my compass would be broken as someone stepped into the canoe (as had happened on a previous trip when I had the map and compass in a zippered storage bag that was not tied down).

As to durability, I love the nylon back because I don't have to worry about laying the case out on a big rock to discuss the route with other paddlers. We were out early in the season, so the case was exposed to sub-freezing temperatures without any problems.

A map case really only needs to do one thing: allow the map to be visible while keeping it protected and dry. The Granite Gear Map Case is so poorly constructed that the zip lock zipper is guarenteed to instantly break plus the heat seals easily tear rendering this product totally useless. It's hard to imagine anyone in the design department gave this product much thought let alone bothering to test it. There are several other superior products out there, don't waste your money on this one.

Size Name: 10 " x 11.5"� Verified Purchase
This map case was the right size for topo maps (folded). The elastic straps with hooks held the cases securely to our canoes and maps could be read clearly through the plastic. Problem was with the closure tabs and seams. They partly failed after moderate use --- getting maps in and out of cases. The tabs just fell off after a couple of days of use on the water, and the plastic corners started to come apart. Of course, water seeped in. Buyers should plan on handling cases gingerly to keep them waterproof.
