I gave them up a few years ago (though I still absolutely love the smell of a good cigar!). I used a travel humidor - an aluminum cylinder with plastic top from JR Cigars - not sure they make them anymore - with a couple of "humitubes" to keep things at the right humidity. The aluminum factor was cool in the AS. I also had a 2 finger aluminum Airstream cigar case. Don't know if I still have that.

Use the JR padded vacuum pouch with small humidifier canister. Only smoke them outside, down wind and away from other campsites.

ID:	286703 I use this travel humidor for most of my trips. It will hold at least 12 - Padron 7000's cigars and 4 Arturo Fuente Short Stories. I believe this humidor is made by a company and is sold by several brands in the cigar business.

Smok'em if you got them, but be conscientious of our friends and neighbors and remember "only you can prevent forest fires!!"

Cheers,

I have 3 of these in different sizes. 5, 10, 15. Usually available at most cigar shops. They work well but the little humidity disc in the lid isn't enough. Toss in a humidity stick.

I do exactly the same thing to ensure the humidity is good. Living here in CO they can dry out quickly if you don't pay attention. You can take a $20 stick and ruin it without the proper moisture in your humidor. I try and keep humidor between 70% - 80% relative humidity.

For me it all depends on how long the trip is. A good quality 3 - 5 cigar caddy and bovida packs for short stays. I'm a cheap Dutchman, so I use a plain-jane Plano case lined with foam. Can cut foam to fit cigar. These cases can hold 20 or more depending on case size and use either bovida or humidity beads. I am working on making a 12 volt wineador for long term.

I will put the caddies and cases in a cooler to help maintain temperature.

I also have a cigar coffin to hold singles and a to help stabilize the one to be smoked

Tupperware type container with humidity pack. The cigars keep well and the container can handle being jostled around during the trip.

PS: They cost less than $5.

I agree the Tupperware works. You can also put some apple pie with it to really enjoy your after dinner dessert.

So, I built a humidor in. Spanish Cedar. Kind of a man cave contractor thing.

Some cigars come in wood boxes. Some of those work very well as a humidor. The only thing that does not last long are the hinges and clasp. Most of the time the boxes are lined with cedar. And then just use your favorite humidity control.

Most of the time the cigar store will give away empty cigar boxes, especially if buying some cigars. Or they may sell them for cheap.

When looking through the boxes at the store, make sure the lid closes tight.
