Anyone ever see a current issue map case?


Recommended Posts

I just got this the other day, it comes with a light system that used LEDs of different colors to light the map and to use as a flashlight of sorts. This one has a blue map light and a green flash light.

The paint stripping of M1 helmets, particularly protestor helmets, is destruction of history by the very men who claim to protect it.

Very neat!

 

Even in the age of the GPS and the computer, nothing can beat a good ol' physical map :lol:

Exactly! I was thinking the same thing!

I agree!!!

 

And ironic, as I and a couple others over here in Iraq were just having this very same discussion this morning. Of course, being old timers as were are, it was more grumping than anything. Especially about how the skills of map reading and land nav are going the way of the doodoo bird with the reliance today on technology. It is becoming a lost art with many of the younger ones today.

 

And cool mapcase Hawk! If I still had need for one, I would be over that like stink on poo.

Very cool, techno-nerdy piece of equipment! What scale map are you using? From the photos, it looks like it would be fine for dismounted patrol, but in a vehicle you would have to keep removing and refolding the map to reflect your new location.

Oh, that's how it works!

 

No, it rolls up around the light. The outside pocket is for markers and pens
