The JMT collections featured on this page is a NICE set. It is only ~$18 and includes 13 8x11 maps that are light weight and easy to deal with. On the other hand, they aren't folded and feel somewhat less durable than the high country maps. The scale is not as detailed as the high country maps, but they don't need to be. If you only plan on hiking the JMT, this is a great purchase, but it won't service all your sierra hiking needs (probably obvious, but worth pointing out.)
The following High Country maps cover the same region (Yosemite, Mammoth, Mono Divide, Kings Canyon and Mt. Whitney.) Together, they'd come to around $50 (so $30 more than the JMT set!) To my sense of touch, these maps feel thicker and more durable. Each is folded to the same size (~4"x9")and together have a depth of about three quarters of an inch. For the real survivalist hiking the JMT all at once, the increased weight of these maps (about the equivalent of a light weight paperback book) might be significant. I'm not sure.
What is most definitely significant is the additional coverage and detail on these maps. Once again, if your intention is to enjoy these mountains repeatedly, you'll eventually end up needing the high country maps anyway.
Incidentally, the Tom Harrison maps web page does an excellent job of showing the coverage, but of course, it is hard to compare until you have the maps in your hands. Owning both sets, I would tend to favor the high country maps for their completeness, but in making my plans for part of the JMT trail this summer, I am still not sure which will make it in the backpack.
the only problem is that the map is too focused on the trail. there is very limited coverage of the surrounding areas, so lets say if i wanted to bail out half way through the JMT, i would have trouble finding my way back to civilization.
don't get me wrong, this is the map you need to get, just make sure you also have a broader map of the surrounding area in conjunction with this map.
There are about a dozen 8.5" x 11" maps in this set, which is different from the usual fold-out format of Harrison's maps. Osprey makes a map case that is well-suited for the set-- it is sized to hold 8.5" x 11" pages, will hold the entire set, and attaches to the front of a backpack, for easy reference.
