Papermaps are tear and water resistant.

Make o good search for what you are looking and scale especially.

There is just something about paper maps that makes planning a journey that much more special compared to staring at your laptop. You can't spread you laptop on the living room floor and crawl over it! The same reason books will never be replaced by digital readers, call me old school but if travelling was all about digital effeciency we wouldn't actually be trying to do it in person but just take the virtual tour on google earth!
Have fun out there!

turned my attention to this maps from:
world mapping projectâ„¢ by Reise Know-How

Reise Know-How Verlag online
go to there side and search for "GPS maps"

this maps are light, water resistance and got the GPS grid to be able to use them in conjunction with your GPS unit... maps are sold by Amazon.
Available for pretty much every country in the world and cost around 8,90-Euros each...
Format: ca. 70x100 cm
2-sided
Material: PolyArt (rip- and waterproof, writeable)
Legend (Dt., Engl., Frz., Span.)

add a good compass and you are set..

if you are rather in to laptop use... well they are supplied as digital maps as well and cover programs like: OziExplorer, Fugawi, TTQV, this maps can be downloaded of there page too.
