5.0 out of 5 stars OS Explorer Map 20 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase
I guess most people looking to purchase an OS Explorer map already knows of the quality and value of these maps. Essential for any walker who may go even just a little off the beaten track, these maps give you all the detail you need to plan your route or simply make sure you don't get lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Into The Valleys 20 Mar 2012
By Crookedmouth HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

The OS Explorer series works at 1:25000 which is 4cm to the kilometer or 2.5 inch to the mile. That's as tight a scale as you'll get from the OS (their Landranger series are less fine at 2cm to the kilometer) and it's easily enough for casual rambling or more serious hiking. To give you an idea of the scale, it takes four of these Explorer maps to cover the English Lake District (OL4, 5, 6 and 7) and two to cover the Black Mountains (the other being OL13. Bear in mind that OL12 covers the Beacons (inclding Brecon, Pen y Fan and the Talybont reservoir) as well as the western Black Mountains. The adjacent map - OL13 - covers the eastern Black Mountains, including Abergavenny, and Llangorse Lake. You may or may not need both, depending on your plans.

I would suggest that if you're driving or cycling on good roads and paths you may be better off with the more manageable Landrangers.

These maps are printed both sides, and they also fold out pretty big, so if your route takes you over the page, maneouvring these beasts can be a little cumbersome. Note also that the key is only printed on one side, across a boundary and that can cause some difficulties. So, some serious map folding is needed - when I was in the Territorial Army, we even had a lesson on the subject.

The "Active" version is waterproofed and costs a few pounds more than this plain paper map but it is even bulkier. I prefer to use the paper map and stuff it in a map case or even a clear plakky bag. Horses for courses.

If you're sticking to roads, paths or decent tracks, or are going to be within sight of plenty of obvious landmarks, you can operate without a compass.

5.0 out of 5 stars OS Maps are great! 3 Sep 2009
We had good fun making our own walks up whilst in the Brecon area - with varying degrees of success, which in most was down to my limited map reading skills. A must buy for anyone visiting the Brecon Beacons.
