Very good but not perfect
on 21 April 2017
Like several others, I am using this paper to print OS maps to take on walking trips. This paper is streets ahead of printing on "normal" paper. It is very tough and can be folded multiple times without losing any clarity on the fold lines. I also tried to tear it and that proved virtually impossible.
However, I didn't have quite the stunning performance that some others have... the printed map is significantly less "smudgeable" than any other type of paper but it is not completely smudge-proof. If I wet the map and wipe across it the print will smear. However, without rubbing, water will run off the print and the map will dry as good as new.
I am using the inkjet paper in a Lexmark inkjet printer with genuine Lexmark cartridges.
The performance is still sufficiently superior for me to continue to use this paper over normal paper or laminating. (The laminated maps are 100% wipe clean but can be unwieldy on a walk as they can't be folded - plus they aren't as easy to write on).
