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). 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 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. Line up your route on the map with the route on the ground and be aware that this might require you to hold the map upside down or on it's side.

What's not to like about a map which tells you where the paths are up Snowdon. did the climb with my Grandson of 16 - went up the Pyg and down the Rangers. Think we'll go down the Miner's next time!

EXACTLY WHAT IT NEEDED TO BE, DIDN'T ACTUALLY NEED IT FOR CLIMBING SNOWDON BECAUSE THE PATHS ARE SO OBVIOUS BUT INVALUABLE FOR OTHER WALKS.

Top quality OS map as ever. Waterproofing works well and shows no sign of degrading after several trips. Good to write on wipe off.

I chose to buy this standard version over the laminated all weather one, due to the fact I'd tried one out before, and to mark the route I was walking, I used a washable marker pen (which is all you can use if you don't want to ruin it with a permanent marker pen), and so the route kept just smudging off whenever the map was folded!

I've therefore gone back to good old fashioned paper maps, using pencil to mark my routes and then a rubber to rub them out, you can't go wrong! Plus it'll save you a few quid getting this one over the other version!

Well done to Amazon by the way for being able to sell this map so cheap, very impressed!

Excellent-as expected for OS map-double sided so large area covered. Snowdon itself near middle on one side-not on join or edge as usually happens on maps!Came quickly, but cover slightly damaged-not quite up to Amazons normal standard.

... about OS maps? Excellent as always and the Explorer ones really do withstand the weather and last far longer than the standard paper maps. I never walk more then a couple of miles from the car without one.

I really like this map. Obviously when you buy an OS map you know what you are going to get but the accuracy of the map and the level of detail still surprises me.

Equally and more particular to this product is the fact that it is laminated - not only is this going to be great when its actually being used but I think that it will mean the map will last longer (specifically it wont tear/rip along the folds).

Great map.
