Travel Humidor?

I will deploying to Haiti soon. I am wanting to get a travel humidor and I have a couple of questions... Any suggestions on a solid travel humidor? (10-15 sticks) Should i seperate the medium bodied cigars from the full bodied cigars? Will 4 months be too long in a travel humidor for my smokes?

    not if you maintain it properly... maybe put some cedar dividers from another humi in there too... http://www.cigar.com/cigars/viewcigar.asp?prod=M-CIO3540

    The Herf-a-Dor 15 capacity is pretty solid, hard plastic outside, foam lined inside. I'd suggest putting a water pillow in there to maintain humidity, but aside from that your cigars will be fine in it for that duration. If it were me, I wouldn't bother separating the cigars, if there is any exchange between the cigars it would be so minimal you'd never notice.

    +1 for herf-a-dor

    +2. I got the 10 count and love it. For you, get the 15. A water pillow will work for a while - just dip it in some distilled water when it gets a little dry. I'm completely paranoid, so I would bring a digital hygrometer with me if I were you.

    Another thing you might do is get a cheap, larger humidor sent to you. You can grab a 50-100 count humidor for $40-50 shipped these days and it would allow you to keep a lot more variety on hand. I was deployed in '05-06 and one thing I truly regret is not taking the time to smoke cigars, read great literature, and think about the important questions that all of us should think about.

    OH. And if you do end up wanting the 15 count herfador, call Jeff at ccom and tell him you're getting deployed. He runs a charity that helps deployed troops and wounded vets. I'm sure he'd love to talk with you about your deployment, and maybe he'd get you a good deal on that herfador and a couple great sticks to go with it. :)

    I have a 15 count travel herf that I use like twice a month (I'm always leaving) I actually have crap sticks that I put in to hold space if I am only bringing a few with me. I love it. I do have two sides to a cigar box in there on the sides of the herfador. They are so skinny they don't affect anything, and I get that cedar piece of mind.
