Moisture barriers for the baccy. I tend to go the route of ziplocks for the amount of times I've been disappointed with desiccated 'baccy days after removing them from their container(s) at home while on the road.


I tend to use this for the footprint and ability to (mostly) prevent undesired clattering between multiple pipes:

They do tend to work better with moisture containment.

I used to own (and wanted to own) ones made with nice leather, with individual leather pouches for each pipe on the inside.
Recently, I'm starting to look for something a bit more rugged. Waterproof or at least resistant would be nice.
How does everyone feel about the how "protective" the pouch is?
One with more rigidity is great, but it also adds to the bulk.

Why not just buy a small dry bag? They make like 1 liter dry bags, most are completely waterproof.

Good idea, just have to check them out first as I imagine that sometimes what they are treated with can mess with scent and taste.
