Not as good as OS maps, but good enough for navigating.
on 21 June 2014
You do lose some detail due to the scaile, but with a compass its good enough. On one day at Nine Standards, (the 2nd highest point on the walk) the fog came down and we could only see about 20 feet. There were no landmarks up there but we managed to navigate through quiet easily with this map. (Make sure you know how to use a compass before beginning this walk!)
100% water proof? Well, on the same day my map case began to leak, yes it wasn't just fog, but rain been blown in all directions. When we got to our B&B the map was soaked through. I laid it out next to the radiator and it soon dryed out. There was some damage to the map but amazingly no loss of print!
I don't know how it would have gone on if it had to sit folded up in a map case in a tent for days on end, but t seems tough enough.
All in all a great map, I think the next best thing to an OS map. My friends had a "footprint" map and the "A to Z coast to coast" map book. The A to Z is OS maps in pages, great for navigating but didn't seem to be very water proof at all. The Footprint map is far too basic, lacking detail, changing scail from page to page, & rotating north.
