The best box is designed with the perfect size in mind and there are two main factors that contribute to their choice: price and size.
Price vs. Size
Price matters, but not as much as you might think. Price, in most cases, will be a very important consideration. Even more important than the size is weight. Cigars are typically not as heavy as they look.
It can be a great way to store them so you don’t have to worry about a lot of things.
That is a matter of personal preference, what makes the cigars stand out and what are they for? That is a matter of personal preference, what makes the cigars stand out and what are they for?
A cigar cooler has all the essential features you need to enjoy a cigar: a cool, dry place for your cigar, a wide range of colors, an easy-to-use, all-metal lid, a wide selection of accessories, and many more.
What is in your humidor?
A humidor is the perfect place to stow your cigars. Many customers prefer to keep their cigars at a humidor and only store them there when smoking. The humidor should also be easy to clean and there is no better way to keep your humidor clean than giving it a good cleaning with a fine-tooth comb.
How do I know which brand to buy?
This is a tough one because many cigars are sold in various humidors and even the same brand can have variations in construction, flavor and color. For that reason, there are many choices to make.
A good cigar cooler is one that allows you to enjoy a cigar within easy reach. We’ve ranked these by our subjective view of usefulness from the following four criteria:
Light Weight – How long do you need to smoke it? Size – How big is the cigar in question? Design – How cool is it? Price – Are more expensive models better?
Of those four, the first two are easiest to gauge and a good cigar cooler is one that meets and exceeds those criteria. These should be kept in the main room (which usually has enough space for a medium sized cigar) away from the hottest parts of the house. That means you should keep it in a place that will not trap too much heat (like a bedroom) or you will have to buy another one.
