4 stars because:
- It'd be nice if it were a bit larger (like an inch or two max extra in each direction to make map folding easier). I agree with other reviewers that the medium is a good size, it sits nicely on your "lap" (spray skirt), and the "large" would be too big.
- The seal doesn't inspire as much confidence as I'd like. It's basically a heavy-duty ziploc seal and requires some attention when closing to be absolutely watertight, and could knock open in the wrong situation. I ended up folding a piece of duct tape over it after sealing to make sure it stayed closed, which worked fine. All that said, I had no problems with water infiltration, and it actually hit the water a couple of times.
The rings are nice for attaching a carabiner and line to a deck line. A grease pencil is VERY useful for marking times and locations as you go, can be used even in the rain, and rubs off when done or at the end of a trip leg. I attached the pencil to the bag with a string (after I lost the first pencil), and fashioned a little pencil holder out of duct tape attached to the case that I slip the pencil in and out of. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BQS168/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_9
Mine has already saved a couple of my paper maps since it's been used in a sudden rain storm while hiking. Although heavier than the smaller versions, I prefer the large because you can see more of the map .if you're on a long-ish walk or paddle then this means less handling and folding/unfolding of the map and therefore less wear and tear.
I carried the large one dummy-corded to my pack strap D-ring, but rolled and secured with a loop of elastic shock cord and tucked down the front of my hiking shirt. To use, simply extract from shirt, slide off the elastic, unroll and set to navigating. To pack up, reverse the procedure.
My (non-GPS) navigation equipment is as follows: Silva baseplate compass, one or more paper topographical maps, pencil, small notepad, 1 foot of venetian blind cord for 2D map distance measurement, romer/protractor and the map case. All fit inside the case when not in use and all are thus very well protected from the elements.
If you're into hiding your valuable or into geocaching, this would be a great short-term cache container too. Doesn't leak at all and is rugged enough to stand having stuff piled on top of it.
Awesome map case at a great price.
