I'd rate this 4.5 stars as it is a useful map especially for seeing how the various areas fit together, which isn't always easy with the four 1:250000 (3 inch to the mile) OS maps.

It is incredibly thin and light, made from a kind of plastic though apparently strong enough to resist tears. It come in a clear plastic case. I think I'd take this map on a walk but would plan it on an OS map. But if I was going to walk off-path the OS map would be essential.

It covers most of the region, though with the cover being printed on the top left section the western end of Crummock Water gets chopped off a bit (though it is added on the back) - so if you are planning on climbing Whiteside from Lanthwaite Green keep your OS map handy. The reverse of the map has the Scafell and Pillar areas at a larger 1:15000 scale, plus other information including first aid data.

The map is clear with fellnames in black and crags in red . All measurements are in metric: no miles or feet mentioned anywhere. Symbols are good, especially the use of shaded blue for marshy areas, this is clearer than the grass tufts on OS maps. Paths are pretty clear also, without the distinction betweem bridleways and paths of the OS maps.

I've just been up in the Lakes using this map and 1:25000 scale OS maps. Although the smaller scale OS are better for pinpointing your exact position, route planning was easier with the BMC map. The colour-coded relief made it much easier to see the lie of the land. The use of blue contour lines to denote rocky hillsides was easier to read than OS.

A map specifically designed for walkers rather than general purpose OS map it leaves out some the clutter on OS maps and highlights features useful to the fell walker.
And it covers all the mountains and most of the outlying lower fell-walking areas of the Lake District on the one map.

Waterproof, thin and light weight it comes in a protective plastic sleeve which means it's at least a quarter of the thickness of a OS laminated map and easily to slides in or out of thigh or inside jacket map pocket without getting frayed or scrunched.

Not a full five stars because the downside of using colour is red dotted lines denoting public paths aren't clear enough against browns of high areas. Harvey would be better to copy OS and have dark green lines. And in bad light details, such as walls not as clear as they would be on a white background. Though personally I think the connivence of being able to see relative fell heights at a glance trumps this drawback.

I would recommend using this map in conjunction with the OS 1:25000 for fell walking in the Lakes.

On subsequent trips to Lakes I have dispensed with the my bulky laminated 1:25000 scale OS maps have have just used this one.

There is a lot to recommend this. It is incredibly tough and lightweight, perfect for taking on the hills in bad weather, which does terrible damage to traditional maps, even when kept in a map case.. It covers pretty well all the Lake District, barring some fringe areas, and the detail is good enough for most purposes. The additional benefit for climbers is that virtually all the climbing crags are marked.

There are obvious pros and cons to the scale used. You might need a greater level of detail, in which case take a 1:25,000. The biggest pro is that when navigating in the hill I can cover a bigger area on one fold, and the level of detail is relevant to hill walking and climbing.

The Ordnance Survey Explorer Series at 1:25,000 are generally considered the standard maps for walkersThe English Lakes: South Western Area (OS Explorer Map Series): South Western Area (OS Explorer Map Series). However, these Harvey Maps, independently surveyed are clearer to read and less confusing, and also add a helpful height colour tint. I walked up Black Crag near Tarn Howes last week. The OS Explorer has a mass of confusing contour lines in this area, but the Harvey map showed Black Fell clearly delineated in brown (used above 300m). Loughrigg Fell, to the north is similarly marked. It does leave out some detail to achieve this clarity; Black Crag is not named, only Black Fell. However, it is easily detailed enough for exploring the highest fells, with enlarged inserts of the Scafell and Pillar regions, is printed on a durable, waterproof material, and is compact enough to be handled in all but the most windy conditions.

A friend recommended this map for a long weekend in the Lake District, so I bought it and I found it really excellent - lightweight, waterproof, tear resistant and covering most of the Lake District. I particularly liked the way all the footpaths and peaks are so clearly marked. I found it so good that I am now going to send off for one of their West of Scotland maps, since this is where I do most of my walking.

if you want a map that covers the majority of the Lake District, this is the one. As it says on the packet "strong durable all weather map" it certainly is.
The scale not be what you are use to, but never the less a great map to use alone or along side your 1:25,000 OS map.
