Best Travel Humidors: Our Top Ways To Take Cigars With You

Depending on where you’re traveling, your needs will vary when it comes to travel humidors. If you’re on a business trip, a luxury case will suit your needs. However, on a long trip, you may need a larger case. If you’re just going to the golf course, a smaller 5-stick herf-a-dor may suffice. Finally, if you want to save space, a Boveda bag will minimize bulk.

Overall, you’ll always need an airtight seal to maintain relative humidity

[01:27] Air Exchange & Humidification:

Humidification depends on how much air escapes from the humidor. For styles that allow more air exchange, like herf-a-dors or zipper-closed humidors, a higher RH Boveda pack works well. Where a Cigar Caddy will take regular 65% packs, less airtight options may need 72% for the same humidification.

[02:10] Impact & Crush Protection:

A rigid, well-cushioned case like the Cigar Caddy will offer more protection from impact & crushing. It also provides another advantage; because of its excellent seal, it’s somewhat waterproof and will float in water.

[02:39] Best Short-Trip Option:

For short trips like picnics, Boveda humidor bags are easy and effective.

[03:44] Professional Option:

If you’re going to a business meeting, something like the Davidoff Travel Humidor is excellent.

It’s a great conversation piece, with space for your cigar scissors and lighter. The Colibri here has similar advantages.

[04:07] Cigar Movement:

Bringing a humidor in your luggage will mean your cigars could get jostled around a lot.

While the Amancy Leather is good in other respects, the lack of cushioning means your cigars will roll around freely. Meanwhile, form-fitting cushions like in the Xikar 50-80 prevent your cigars from moving around during transit.

Of course, even with options like the Amancy Leather, you can insert enough cigars so there’s no room to move.

[04:32] Analyzing Your Needs:

Ultimately, it all depends on your use case.

Taken in luggage, cigars may move around a lot. The boot of a car is relatively safe, while crushing is a consideration if you’re taking cigars in a backpack. However, if you’re backpacking, space is a limitation, so a smaller herf-a-dor is a good bet.

[05:32] Conclusion

Budget is a another consideration, since these solutions range from under ten dollars to hundreds.

Some of the travel humidors here have wood interiors; while this has its own benefits, it adds another consideration.

Because wood dries out over time, a humidor like the Amancy or Lagute will require re-seasoning before use. Otherwise, the dried-out wood may unexpectedly dessicate your cigars. Fortunately, small humidors like these can simply be kept in a humidor bag when you’re at home.
