Question Map Holder

Does anyone have a Map Holder (magnetic preferred) that they recommend?

I'm not looking for a tank bag at all. Just something small, and flat, that can just hold a map or directions. The smaller the better.

I've found a bunch online, but I'd like to get people's recommendations from here.


PS: Yes, I do use the search function and could't find anything similar.

TourMaster tank bags have removable map holders that you could use. I know you weren't looking for a tank bag, but I didn't realize they were removable until I bought one. It's expensive if all you want is a map holder.

If you want to go super-cheap....1 gallon Ziploc bag and 4 round magnets. Right? <grin>

Check with places that carry pilot supplies. Airport FBO's, Sporty's Pilot Shop, etc. Pilots frequently use kneeboards for maps, but sometimes want clear plastic holders as well. I've also seen them at outdoor supply stores (i.e. REI and others). Another real cheap place is a plain old office supply store. Look for plastic notebook pages. Some of them have zip-up edges and are relatively waterproof.

Actually I thinkn this is the cheapest and maybe the best. I use Ziploc bags for many things so this would be a new one ... easy to replace if needed.. Good idea !
