    Best Travel Humidor

    I need a travel humidor that can protect cigars in various climates. Can you offer the best options for me to consider. I was looking at a metal suitcase style but I need the advice of an expert. Thanks

    How many cigars would you like to take?

    I have a Xikar Xtreme case. All I can say is its awesome! When I bought it they previewed it by having a hummer with a wheel on top of it. I'm pretty hard on my stuff and this humi is crush proof, waterproof, etc. The link below has the best pic, but you can find it for $60 pretty easily. They have smaller versions if you don't want that many (30 count etc).

    Hope this helps!

    I'm not expert but I do have 6 travel humidors. 2 are metal ones, the other 2 are 20 counts wood travel humis and the other 2 are Tupperware humis. I love the tupperware one because it's easy to stow away and get in and out of and I just keep a humistat tube in there and they are perfect. I travel a lot,,when I say alot I mean ALOT and when it comes to getting thru TSA with smokes it's an easy deal for them to look in there without tearing up all of my smokes. It's clear, you can see inside of it and it doesn't get these chimpanzees all worked up asking what's in the box,,,can I look in the box,...what is the cutting thing?,,,,,etc etc. The best part about it also is the cost,,,$3 and it holds about 15-20 cigars all the way up to a Churchill size.

    I'd go with a Cigar Caddy. They're virtually indestructible (trust me, I've driven over it, wacked it, dropped it, even shot it once). They keep humidity well. There are capacities from 2 sticks up to 30.

    I've got two Cigar Caddies, a 10 stick and a 5 stick and they are fantastic. I might pick up a 30 in the near future for longer camping trips so all the guys have some cigars.

    Gary - went through a couple of TSA check points today - so I packed my travel humidor in my checked bag- didn't want to mess with them guys- do they give you grief about the cutter? do you take stick matches ? I figure if I have it all checked - lighter - cutter -cigars - less hassle-

    Your Cigar Caddy/Herf-a-Dor/Otterbox, whatever you want to call it, is just about the best. Crushproof and has a really good seal. The price is right, too!

    When I travel I do it pretty light anymore only because they are charging so much money to check a friggin bag now and with a R/T ticket that can add up to a box of cigars for me.

    Checking your bag thru like you suggested will probably get you thru the process much easier but I have had some cigars "disappear" en route and that really pisses off the Good Humor Man so now I always travel with my cigars close by. I pack a bic lighter, cutter and cigars in my traveldor with a document on TSA terms of what can be checked thru which includes my cutter. I have been stopped twice about my cutter and when they read the rules that I keep packed they let me through with no hassle.

    I did try to sneak my Ronson lighter in Atlanta last Oct. and hid it so well they couldnt find it but they knew there was something in my bag that they weren't going to let thru so I spent 20 minutes watching them go thru my bag 3 times. Finally, I was so exasperated I told them let me get it for them and got the lighter out and they were so pissed at me. They asked me why I didn't tell them where it was before and I said that "its a ronson lighter for Gods sake,,,I have two bic lighters that make fire as well but they don't get called out so you tell me what the big difference is?" Good thing I got there 2 hours early as they kept me there for another half hour going thru each and every item in my packed bag while I stood there listening to my IPOD and then telling them I wanted my bag repacked just like it was before they got ahold of it or I'd file a complaint. A very interesting day it was. Maybe the smart money is just to check the bag and pay for it to have a nice flight.

    I've got one of the black plastic "xtreme" cases as well. The 15 count will hold 10 or so if they are 50 rg or larger. I have flown with it several times with no problems. It has kept cigars in good rh for weeks. Great purchase.

    Thats a little bigger than I would need I have both the 5 and the 10 cigar caddie (basically a peli or otter box with some foam dividers). The 5 gets the most use unless I am on a longer trip when the 10 comes along. I have found the 5 to be the perfect size for a day or overnight trip.

    Plus as I found out the other weekend it will keep a pair of cigars and my cell dry and safe while we finished shooting the match in the rain and mud.

    But If I was getting ready to go on a long deployment the 144 might be just the trick.
