A Map Case - Is It Necessary?

Section Hiker (Phillip Werner) has a great post on making a case for a map case.

So, how do you carry your maps.  Sure, a zip-lock bag works well but is that the best??

See Phillip's post below:

"If you hike in England or Scotland, it’s pretty common to see hikers wearing a map case
around their neck. But map cases are relatively rare in the United States. They can be quite useful however if you have a lot of maps that you have to manage or you need to check them frequently because you are bushwhacking or hiking cross country – not something most Americans do though. They’re also quite practical if you need to carry a GPS, compass, and notebook and want a convenient way to keep everything together."
