Apart from being roomier to accommodate the expanded atlas, the zipper has been upgraded to be more rugged and easier to open. Plastic sleeves inside the cover allow the atlas to be operated while permanently fitted inside the canvas covering. The cover also features a handy document pouch on the inside.
Please note that the old canvas cover will not fit the new atlas.
Our second edition atlas is substantially thicker than the first edition and includes many more pages of detailed maps.
