Made of specially formulated, heat treated PVC, it is virtually indestructible. The pages can't rip or tear and the corners won't fold over. If they get dirty just wipe clean or wash them with water. Seriously! They have been tested underwater for more than 30 days with no negative impacts! They won't warp, fade or deteriorate. Just don't leave them in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. UV rays will yellow them but even then the printing is sharp and clear. And check out their small size. They are truly pocket sized. The perfect compliment to your survival kit, car, boat or snow machine. Did we mention slip it into your pack?
