Pelican Case Good/Bad humidor?

So I realized I have a big pelican case I can use as a humidor. Just pull out the foam and viola, add my sticks and my water pillows (all I got for now) and they should keep for a while. At least til I get a humidor, and no Ron they didn't have any at the PX. I might have to try the bazaar. L8R All

    The pelican case should work great. In fact Pelican makes three travel humidors that have inserts for sticks. You can get them for 5, 10, or 15 sticks.
  • That sounds like a great purchase for later. I have two cases here, one for my lap top and one for my Computer accessories, Hard drives and the mouse and cords. I just purchased a humidor for like 70 sticks and I also signed up for cigar of the month club. That will put me at about 45 cigars and I think that is a decent start. I will have an excess of the Sol Cubano Cuban Cabinet cigars if anyone is interested in getting a few through trade or handout depending on how much I like them. Gotta love free Cigars!! Oh yea Ron, just to rub it in, I got my 30+ cigar order in 4 days and the website says it hasn't even shipped yet. LOL Take care and I hope you aren't getting as much rain as we are. Big drops ya know.

    I am jealous. They are super fast with shipping. At Taji it took about 5 da ys to get orders. But here we only get sustainment pushes every 4-6 days. So it probably went to Taji the day of our last sustainment push and the one we were supposed to get today was delayed. I'm so bummed. I think I will join the Cigar of the month club when I get back home though. BTW, we aren't getting any rain. Only sunshine and heat.

    A god friend and colleague of mine has a pelican travel humidor and likes it very much. He carries about 10 sticks when he travels. I opted for one of the smaller Xikar cases, (5 sticks), they too make them larger. I don't bring as many with me when I travel, just a few to have around. I really like searching out and finding the local cigar shops wherever I am traveling too, and try to support the local tobacconist by buying one or two. The case works great. I smoke some of mine, buy some of theirs and I go home with an almost full case.

    The rain was a metaphor for incoming rounds.

    Doh! Well we aren't getting any of that kind either. LOL, although it did rain here last week and hailed at Taji.
