    Exclamation Rider mapcase

    Last fall while riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway I met a rider that had a mapcase which he wore like a backpack so that his passenger could act as navigator more easily. I thought to myself that this was a novel idea as it adds more interest for the passenger, the only thing is I can't find anything like it.
    Would anyone here have any insight with this. The mapcase was clear flexible plastic and would have been able to hold an 8x10 sheet of paper and as said was attached to straps enabling the rider/operator to wear it like a backpack. Any help is appreciated

    It's not exactly what you're describing, but this might work.

    Roadgear Adventure Backpack Map Holder $30. With the Adventure Backpack Map Holder, two-up riding becomes an interactive event. It frees up the rider to pay attention to the road, while the passenger handles the navigation duties. We can't think of better couples therapy. Available in several different colors. www.roadgear.com Look under Soft Luggage, then Map Holders.

    rockbottom.......the unit you provided a link for would have been my "other" choice, and I would have added some webbing to it as well in order to wear it. Thanks.

    Hmmm. Might also work great as an "If found, please return to..." information sheet for me to wear at the Rally Biergarten.

    Or...

    If you can read this...


    Use your imagination.

    In our case it might just mean my top case fell off!
