Keep the Total Escape web sites alive by purchasing maps and gear with our links. We have done extensive research over the past 2 decades narrowing down the crappy gear from the real rugged outdoor equipment. If you want your camping gear to last years and be reliable, best not to buy the cheapest stuff.

Total Escape sells not just USDA National Forests maps and Wilderness Topos, but Tom Harrison Topo Maps, National Geographic Maps, Wilderness Press Maps, Franko Maps, Benchmark Atlases and many more unknown maps.
