Ortlieb Map Case Reviews

General comments: Can't fault mine wish id brought it first instead of cheaper ones, guaranteed waterproof managed to submerge mine for 5 minutes in a stream and map was still dry when retrieved. Bulker than some other cases but worth it.
Pros: 100% waterproof and very robust construction so wont fall apart on first outing.
Cons: heavier than other makes

General comments: I had been through almost 20 map cases in almost as many years, the plastic not being able to handle the variance of British weather temperatures and becoming brittle and cracking and then the map gets wet.
I came across my Ortlieb map case on a visit in the lakes about five years ago....what an amazingly robust piece of kit....and I've used it a lot in all weathers walking, scrambling, Mountain biking, cycle touring and still going strong.
Pros: Robust, flexible (at all temperatures), 100% waterproof, can be clipped folded so it doesn’t get caught by the wind so easily. Easy to clean.
Cons: Very basic looking in design.
