Considering taking a few ISOM sticks to a friend this weekend. I know he has a humidor with NC in it. Wondering how well a good Qt. ziplock bag would store a few with a small 62RH Boveda in it? By store I mean for a while possibly. Seems like it would be OK but wanted to run it by the geeks.. Thanks for any thoughts and putting up with my dumb questions !

Depends on what you mean by "a while" It should be fine for a few days but long term, better off in at least in a Tupperware type container.

Ive just been left under the impression that the CC's keep and smoke much better at the lower RH.. Maybe Im over thinking it.. ?

i do the same. Don't over think it. If you do keep your other sticks at a higher RH than drybox your ISOM for a couple days before you light it up.

Ziplock should work just fine until the Bovedas dry out... But I agree with Kent

I've used ziploc bags with a piece of spanish cedar and a Boveda to a bag-a-dor. Works fine for months.

I actually did notice that one was surprisingly wet when I smoked it and it was kept in a 66-68 humi. Maybe there's something to that...

IF I had any ISOMs they would be kept at 60-63%, probably for years! And they would always smoke beautifully !

Pretty much the same here, 64-66 with two calibrated hygrometers.

I keep all my cigars in my travel humi with a 65 boveda sometimes a cigar will stay a little longer than the rest but still never an issue. Country of origin makes no difference.

late to the party, but at one time I had 400 to 500 cigars, some in boxes, some in small bags, and all in thick mil 2 gallon freezer bags with the double track closing feature, not the plastic zipper tab thing.

depending on how many were in a large freezer bag, I'd drop in some small 62 bovedas. often I'd drop one right in the box as well. Then I kept the freezer bags in the drawers of an empty dresser in a spare room where the temp was pretty much 65-68 year round, a bit cooler in the dresser.

from there, just went by feel, especially with cc's, and looked for just a bit of label slippage before smoking. Most of the time no issues, but prelight draw will tell you if it's ready.

not the hugest collection, but a pretty good sample size, and some were stored for a few years.

btw, the above was taught to me by a collector in Orlando. I live near Boston. Works fine for each of us, actually better than my humidor ever worked.

As Frank pointed out, use a thick zip lock! Those cheap zip locks are porous and will have an effect on the stored RH. I

I use hygrometers very little anymore, only as a reference when the RH is dropping in my humidor. Heartfelt beads keep my humidor amazingly perfect as far as storage goes. A travel humi will store cigars well for short periods without any humidifier. A Boveda in a travel humidor will last for quite some time
