For hardcore cigar lovers who can’t be without a wide selection of smokes when traveling, there is perhaps no more popular choice than the Cigar Caddy 40. Built of durable ABS molded plastic, the Cigar Caddy is primed and ready to protect up to 40 of your cigars from the elements, as well as whatever rough and tumble adventures that might come your way.
While not the most aesthetically pleasing of travel humidors, the Cigar Caddy 40 is all about function, delivering a tight, waterproof seal that allows the box to float and be fully protected for up to 100 feet of water. Whether you want to test the waterproof nature of the box by dunking your prized possessions in the drink is entirely up to you, but your cigars won’t be bothered a bit by a little splash here or there.
Removable locking clasps and stainless steel latch hinges also help keep cigars locked up tight, while keeping them easily accessible no matter the time or place. One drawback that might occur from time to time is that the stainless steel latch hinges may pop off of the box. This is not, however, a full-blown emergency neither is the box broken. The hinges will pop back on with a little effort, and you will be right back in the swing of things.
Foam inserts keep cigars neatly protected from rattling around during transport, with the added option of removing the inserts to create more space. Just keep in mind that removing the foam altogether might create more room for cigars, but you will also lose the protection the foam lends to the cigars. And if you prefer larger sized cigars, you might find that the foam inserts just won’t accommodate 40 cigars, so you might want to temper your expectations of this box to a more realistic 25 to 30 cigars. No matter how many cigars you squeeze into the Cigar Caddy 40, each will be kept in optimal condition with the included humidification disc. Add a sheet or two of Spanish cedar for an extra enhancement that will give you the benefits of more permanent cedar-lined humidors.
If you can set aside its quirks, the Cigar Caddy 40 40-Cigar Travel Humidor is a highly portable travel humidor large enough to accommodate smokes for those extended trips or simply as a transportable desk top humidor between your home and the office. With a decent price and the bonus of a handle for easy carrying, there simply isn’t a better all-around travel cigar humidor in the land.
