5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Service 4 Jun 2010
Format:Map|Verified Purchase
This is a great purchase as the map has a 'protective coating' so if it rains then the map will survive. We've already done some great new walks, even though we've lived in the Lake District all our lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars OS Active Map Of North West Lake District 3 May 2009
Format:Map
This map covers the North West Lake District at an excellent scale for walkers, cyclists, and for other outdoor pursuits. Okay, it's a map, but that's not the important part. These active maps by the OS were a great idea! For a long time the only way to stop maps being destroyed by bad weather was to use a plastic wallet, but these had one clear disadvantage - what if you needed to look at a different part of the map? Either risk destroying it by refolding it whilst exposing it to the full force of the wind and rain, or try to do it in your bag. With these laminated maps, you can leave them out in the rain all day, and still they're completely undamaged by the weather. They're a little more unwieldy than the non-laminated maps, but are currently the best all-weather maps available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waterproofed version of a classic map series 3 Jun 2011
By Crookedmouth HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Map
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 - for my holiday there this year I'll be taking three maps) or two (OL26 and 27) for the North York Moors. 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.

This is the "Active" version it's waterproofed which costs a few pounds more than the 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. If your walk is a little more adventurous, you'd be wise to carry one with you, but bear in mind that effective compass usage doesn't come without a little training and practise.

Final tip: before you leave the car park, "orient the map". In other words, make sure you know where you are on the map and where you're going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Maps around 16 April 2010
Format:Map
The maps done by Ordinance Survey are brilliant maps, full of detail and full off information and last for ages. Especally the fully waterproof one's like this which helps keep dry especally if your like me and liable to drop it some where damp. The explorer maps are a nice scale for walking and you are able to pin point your position exactly with it's detail. Only downside with laminated maps if you fold them the wrong way (which you have to do sometimes to see the other side) it does damage evntually. But they are very durable and the best out there.
As for the area. The lakes are the most breath taking areas in the country. But you proply know that and if you probably plan on going there if you where looking at this map. So simple as, these are the best maps you can find, so walkers, explorers, climbers etc. it's a must.
But like most of the Lakes this area is beatiful so go and enjoy.

Very versatile. Excellent. Hard wearing. Well worth that little extra money than the standard map. Used it in wet conditions and it performed well.

Well you cant go wrong with OS maps, this is my first Active one and it is a little heavier/bulkier but if it is raining you can sit on it while you eat your dinner and keep your bum dry!

It's a map! How can you review a map? It shows you the area you want or you wouldn't have bought it. You put your boots on and set off.

This map is highly detailed and more than useful when walking the fells. The size does make it a little unwieldly in the wind -which is the only drawback.
