A lot of those humidor are pretty cheaply made and don’t end up holding humidity. I would recommend setting up a tupperdor. Get a nice Tupperware that has latches like Sistema brand and then put a Boveda pack or two in it. Cheap, you don’t need to season it and it will hold humidity perfectly.

Just my .02, I have two cheap humidors I bought early on and now they just sit empty.

Then if you really get serious you can upgrade to a coolidor, that’s what I use now.

Or just get a Yeti. :). But actually a Igloo or Coleman work just fine, Im told.

Ya that’s what I meant by coolidor, I use an igloo.

Humidity running low?
Ha! I thought the same. That cooler sure don't look too low.
I have a simple cedar box that I put cigars in after getting rid of the plastic or viscose wrappers. My cigar stash is rarely more than a dozen or so.

Been worried about my non celloed cigars getting beat up in the cooler so I picked this up in hopes that it will help.

Don’t take the wrapper off! If you store different cigars side by side with no wrapper they will meld flavors over time, also if one molds or hatches beetles it will ruin all of them rather than being contained to one cigar.

Lol no I don’t take the cello off of the cigars, the extra tupper is for the cigars I have that don’t come in cello, mostly from Cuba.

Thanks for the good advice. I very seldom have more than just a few cigars in my small cedar box, and cigars are seldom there long enough to worry about it. But I've always preferred to get rid of the celo if the cigar was going into the cedar. I'm having thoughts now of making cedar partitions for my small humidor box.
Speaking of beetles, there was a discussion about them at the cigar event I attended a few weeks ago. I've never knowingly encountered them, so I was a bit surprised that everyone else at our table had.

I never have, keep your cigars under 70degrees and 70rh and you should be fine!

I had a humidor stocked for awhile, but I don’t smoke enough cigars at home, if you don’t keep it mostly full it’s difficult for a humidor to maintain humidity, so I just got one of those travel cases and I use that now.

My humidors are all filled with pipes now. I don't smoke enough sticks anymore to keep one filled, and if I do have a few, my grandsons usually get to them.

I just recently got my first humidor and stocked it with a couple of bundles from CI. I've decided it's a nice supplement since it's currently such a pain for me to get pipe tobacco in my corner of the world. I keep it at work because my wife can't stand the smell of smoke.

I'm open to recommendations of cigars to try, good bundles of cigars, and good websites for picking up cigars at good prices.
