However you choose to keep your cigars fresh while out and about, there are a few things to bear in mind first. When selecting the cigars to bring with you it is advised to choose cigars that have had plenty of time to rest in a humidor first, this will make sure they are of optimum condition to withstand the trauma of travel.
Next, make sure you know how many cigars you are going to want to store, this will reduce the risk of any getting unnecessarily damaged, then, choose the appropriate method of storing them. For example you don’t want to have a single cigar rolling around in a humidor if you could have bought a tube, alternatively you also don’t want to bring a box of cigars with you when one would have sufficed.
Now you have the cigars you want in the appropriate storage, you are ready to go. Try and avoid leaving your cigars in direct sunlight or high temperatures, this will help make sure they are perfect for when you want to smoke them.
