There’s nothing better than a tasty cigar after a long day of work. Personally, I save them for days when I accomplish something big, but also have days where I just want to smoke in my spot at the back of my property and let the day wind down.
If you travel often, then you understand how hard it is to properly pack your cigars. They break easy and can dry out if you don’t store them properly. There’s nothing more frustrating than getting your heart set on smoking for a good hour and discovering your cigars have lost their life. The amount of time they stay fresh various from place to place, but you normally must put them in a humidor immediately or they will lose their spark.
If you spend money on quality cigars, you need to buy the best cigar travel case you can find to protect your investment. Why spend good money just to watch it dry up? You also need a cigar lighter, cutter and other accessories that you can get all together in a handy cigar smoking kit.

How to Choose a Cigar Travel Case
Think about how often you smoke and how long you want to go in between runs to the cigar shop. For example, if you only smoke once a month, a small case would probably work. If you smoke a few cigars every weekend, then you may want a cigar travel case that can hold 5 to 7 cigars. If you smoke with friends and smoke more than one at a time, then you may want to spring for a large case. One thing you don’t want to happen is running out of cigars because you couldn’t fit them in your cigar travel case.
Also, you will have to make a choice on design. As you can see, there are premium leather options and more tactical looking designs. There are also small cases that can fit in your jacket pocket, box designs and cannisters. It all depends on your personal style as they all protect your cigars from the elements and droppage.
Will a Travel Cigar Case Work as Good as a Full-Size Humidor?
Short answer: No, but it depends on your intended usage. While a travel cigar humidor does a great job at keeping your cigars safe from damage and fresh short term; it’s our opinion that it shouldn’t be a long-term option. While they may keep your cigars in pristine condition for a long time, we’re talking about months and months of storage. Then you may need to invest in a larger, permanent box to store your cigars.
