The map was not put in a stiff package and arrived bent.

Comments about RiverMaps Colorado River in the Grand Canyon 5th Ed. Guide Book:

Product is fine. This is not a book. It is a map, so most of the questions don't apply.

Service and delivery comments:

Poor packaging.

        Comments about RiverMaps Colorado River in the Grand Canyon 5th Ed. Guide Book:

        Great guide for paddling the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Mile-by-mile descriptions of sites, rapids, camps, etc.

        Must be difficult to keep up-to-date with a lot of the beach erosion and overgrown campsites, but they do a good job.
