Large Pelican Case

i have a large pelican case I believe it’s the 1500 .  I had bought it a long time ago to store cameras in and I haven’t used it in years .   I was gonna give to to my uncle to use as a cigar humidor .  What do I need to do to it ?  Take the foam out ?  Season it ? Glue Spanish cedar veneer in it ?

    Probably just add  Cigars and your favorite humidification device.   Unless you're using it for long term storage I wouldn't bother with adding Cedar

    Take the foam out and use boveda packs and it's good to go

    I've been using (2) Pelican 1470s for about a year now.  Took out all the foam except for the lid.  

    I have 3 Bodivas in each and open it once per week minimum for air exchange.  Only need to replace the Bodivas once in a year.  

    Carry it in the same position it sits normally not by the handle.  With cigars being loose, they will get damaged if you carry it by the handle.

    I think they work great.


  • Sounds good I was thinking it would work fine and can probably fit a lot of cigars too.

    I was thinking replace the foam with new and 4 Boveda packs. With fiam you can just grab it and go without worrying about damaging your sticks.  Several travel humidors are just small pelican cases with the rippled foam

  • I think the plan will be for him to keep it in his closet laying flat and he might add a couple of cedar trays

    Well then cancel that idea
