All-in-One Map Tool

All-in-One Map Tool
Market price: $18.00

Featured in Backpacker Magazine (March 2007 issue), the pocket-sized Brooks-Range All-in-One™ Map Tool contains the major UTM scales and slope indexes typically used on topo maps in the US (including Alaska), Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Japan.

Made from a non-glare, flexible plastic material that resists breaking at the corners or tearing in cold and severe conditions. It only measures 4 x 7 inches and fits easily in your pocket. Designed to meet or exceed USGS standards for accuracy to 1/50th of an inch.

Eight distance scales located along the edges for use on almost any topo map, from 1:25,000 through 1:250,000. All scales in miles (mi), three in miles and kilometers (km).

Besides distance scales, this tool has six slope indexes, and eight UTM scales. The compass rose has 360° and 64° notation and can double as an inclinometer.

All these features make the Brooks-Range Map Tool as essential for orienteering as a map and compass.

    It’s been great to see your map readers in so many places, including REI I believe!! I do rave about them and I believe them to be one of the better tools (alright, the best!) out there for map work. I wonder how the ‘guide’ version will do.

    best regards

    Overall – a great product.

    A simpler version with fewer features (scales) would work for my boy scouts.

    The map tool, guide cards, and field book cover were great and made things like creating daily tour plans much easier.

    Too complicated and full of scales I will never use. If they just would stay with US 1:24,000 Topo map info I would like it so much better. There are only the vague instructions included with the product that only a seasoned professional can understand. I bought 4 of them at a little over $80 and feel totally cheated. AVOID THIS PRODUCT. TOO COMPLICATED!
