A map is one of the most important items which should be in your backpack on every hiking and packrafting trip. However, when your map gets wet you may end up with the situation that you are not able to use your map anymore. For this reason, a waterproof Calazo map was our choice for our hiking and packrafting trip in the Swedish mountains.
For our trip to Sarek, I was looking for a proper map that is durable and water-resistant. After doing some research online, I was able to spot Calazo maps which are made of Tyvek. I also found them a tad cheaper than the regular paper maps.
Usually, I use both – a digital map on my phone and a printed map if I go for a longer trip into the wilderness. The digital map is more convenient but a printed map is good to have as a backup in case my phone stops working.
