Your cigars are calling to you from inside your humidor. (The sound might be muffled by Boveda, but you can still hear them.)
They saw you take your luggage out.
They know you’re leaving.
So why not throw a few sticks in your bag to smoke at your final destination?
Whether you’re heading across the country, up to the lake or just out for the day, humidity control does not take a vacation. Leaving cigars without humidity control—even for a few hours—can damage your cigars, affect their burn and diminish their flavor. So leave room in that cigar case or travel humidor for Boveda.
Unlike wet cedar strips, sponges and 1-way humidifiers, Boveda will not make your cigars soggy. Boveda’s 2-way humidity control only adds or removes moisture if it’s needed. Then Boveda maintains a constant relative humidity (RH) level in your humidor.And even in close quarters, Boveda can safely touch your cigars.
In the market for a travel humidor or cigar case? Ask yourself:
A cigar case is more like a wallet or a passport case and less like a carry on. Holds a few cigars for shorter excursions. Keeps your cigars and their accessories in one convenient, elegant place. Frees up room in your briefcase, handbag and pockets. More of an everyday carry-all than long-term storage.
Cigar cases are perfect for:
What to Look for in a Cigar Case
A Peter James Leather Cigar Case, from $300 to $445. Dropping a few hundo on a Peter James cigar case? Spring $40 extra for its Guardian, too. The aluminum tray slides into the cigar pocket to further protect your sticks. Choosing a leather cigar case means you’ll sacrifice humidity control for style, unless you zip your cigars into a small Boveda Humidor Bag that’s been preloaded with Boveda before pocketing that Peter James.
A travel humidor is more like an attaché case or tackle box than a wallet. (You might hear them also called Pelican™ cases.) They’re typically airtight and watertight. Many cigar lovers use these powerhouses as their home humidors as well as long-term travel storage.
More for function, less for show.

What to Look For

Just like you have more than one piece of luggage—think weekend duffle versus business roll away—most cigar aficionados invest in both a cigar case and a travel humidor. There is room in your life for both.
Or go for a more dressed up travel humidor (just don’t toss it around like you would those hard-sided humidors). Davidoff calls its model a travel humidor (it works like a short-term humidor but shows like a cigar case). Its construction, materials and magnetic closure promise up to three weeks of humidity control.
Davidoff Travel Humidor, from $279 to $299. Davidoff’s tray has a flexible wave design that securely holds a few cigars and is crafted from scuba suit material. For more precise humidity control, pop the Davidoff cigar cradle in a medium size Boveda Humidor Bag.
