Any chance of a single stick case being offered? Thanks
I'm wondering if this would work as a light and protective travel case for watches. I realize it's unlined but I saw that someone had lined it for use as an eye-glass case. Any opinions on that from anyone who owns this? Thanks.

I use mine for reading glasses, with a light cloth to protect the lenses, and it works well. The narrowest point in the case is 2 cm and the widest is 4.6 cm (for the double case).
What ring gauge will these accept?
How well do these seal and keep cigars? is this mainly for A single day or will they keep decently over a couple days?
Verwilderd
I have a two finger one I picked up here last time they dropped; I wouldn't call it airtight, but it's got a pretty snug vacuum-ish seal. Makes a nice solid "pop" when you pull it open. I re-purposed some thin cedar liners from a couple of other tubos and carried it around on several long weekends without any ill effect. I wouldn't use it for long term storage, but if you just need to toss a couple sticks in your bag for a couple days I think it's pretty awesome. I just ordered a three finger this time around for longer trips or bigger gatherings (always nice to share if you can!).
I prefer unlined as I not only use these for carry purposes, I line them with aluminum foil so when I have to go inside a building, supermarket, bank, store etc. I slip the lit cigar into them and the cigar extinguishes in 10 seconds, I then re-light once I come back outside. Fyi, these are made in mainland China, not Japan and not Taiwan. These appear from the photos NOT to be microfiber lined in case anyone wanted that. Unlined plain Carbon Fiber is preferable.

Nice shot from your collection there.
Would this be a good case for joints?

Didn't say air tight. Said "seems a pretty good seal".
Sweet, I've been waiting for these to come around again so I could pick up a three stick one for longer weekends.
I got these and they work great. I’ve stored some cigars in the 3 cigar case in my car for weeks no mold etc. November to April I’d just refill as I’d use one or two on trips etc. As far as it scratching... I have none on mine but I don’t rub it against anything either, it’s in my pocket or in the glove compartment, or a bag etc. it fits Churchill’s just fine. I wish it fit my makers mark tubes!
This Case Scratches At The Slightest Touch Against Anything, Even As You Slide It Colsed Or Open, Cheaply Made Product, Looked Good From Far, But It's Far From Good!!!
Bought one with the intent of using it as a clip-on sunglasses case. Turned out pretty sweet. Microfiber lined.

The ones that are for sale are not 'microfiber lined'. Additionally, these are made in mainland China not Japan and not Taiwan.

Apologies if I was unclear, I added the microfiber.
Can someone confirm if a Churchill would fit in this (lengthwise) without getting crushed? I see the dimensions, but wasnt sure if there is play in the cap for longer cigars than the dimensions posted.
As an aside, it would be super awesome if this company could add a cedar lining in there.

Closest I've got on hand at the moment is a Toro (6 x 50)and that's *just* pushing it on the length. I would expect a Churchill (6.5+ x 48ish) would be too long.
Verwilderd
An easy remedy would be to purchase a couple of glass tubos (cheapies) with the round cedar lining and when your done smoking those 2 cigars, transfer the cedar to the carbon travel case.
Just saying, I bought two of these on eBay for less then $10 each. Looks exactly the same,
Just got mine and it's dope. Which how I intend to use it, two Cubans and pre-roll. God I'm gonna enjoy pulling this from a suit jacket.

Does it have any odour inside it?
Arrived today, very pleased!
Thought I'd jump in and confirm that this comfortably holds a pair of "fat" Robustos (5x54)
In the first pic the case is slid closed to the point it "stops" and I'd guess it would take up to 6x54 comfortably.
Actually at 54 ring gauge there's a little wiggle room, might just take 56, or else maybe just enough room for a super-thin Spanish Cedar wrap (like you get inside some nicer tubos).

How does relighting them taste. Typically when I have to relight a cigar, it’s ruined. It might be ok if you catch it immediately and relight, but otherwise, they don’t taste the same if they need to be relit.
How does this work work for you? If you line with aluminum, does that help with flavor? I have little experience with trying to relight. The times I have the cigar was basically wasted.
Great drop! How do we get a drop going for a nice 'full size' Spanish cedar lined humidor?

Make a poll! We look at these to guide most of our product sourcing. Here's how to get started:
https://helpdesk.massdrop.com/hc/en-us/articles/212496258-How-do-I-format-my-poll-
If you post it in our Talk section and start a conversation about smoking accessories, we can see how much interest there is for humidors and other items. Great idea, hope we can make it happen!
Ring gauge size would be nice
I've never used this style of travel case (usually use a sealed humitube for traveling). I like the idea of being able to bring more than one. I'm curious though, how easy is it to crush the cigar with the lid? It seems it just slides on the base until it hits the top (shoulder) of the cigar, at which point it will stop. It that is all that keeps the lid from going down more, how easy is it for a cigar (specifically the wrapper) to get damaged?
I bought a similar one to this on ebay a couple years ago and it stinks- inside. i tried everything to get rid of it and it still stinks now. not sure why. i have another Carbon fiber cigar case from Griffins that is made in Switzerland thar dows not have any odor. i wonder if these smell...?
I found this ad in Alibaba-looks like the same case, lower price with a minimum order of 10. The description says the carbon fiber cloth is made in Japan and Taiwan but the actual case is fabricated in China, is that correct? https://xccfrp.en.alibaba.com/product/60411533865-221462044/Travel_Humidor_carbon_fiber_cigar_case_3_finger_humidor.html to oldgearhead-these cases are not intended for storage, rather keep your cigars from being damaged while traveling, i.e., going out for dinner then a cigar afterwards- always nice to share a cigar so a two or three cigar holder is always nice.

These are made in 'mainland China', not from Japan or Taiwan.

Thank you for the info.
Not sure about the idea of these cases. Sure they are crush resistant but cigars are living entities that like to breathe. Cedar lined humidors and leather cases seem to be more appropriate for cigars. The carbon fiber case is more like a sealed coffin. Trapped moisture can fester into mold. I would like to see how cigars perform versus mold in a one of these.

fwiw, i bought cubans in montreal that, upon inspection later, had grown white mold or mildew. I have no way of knowing what the shop did to them, but the humidor they were in when i bought looked legit and the hygrometer looked right.
perhaps they were fantasy cigars.

White plume is generally fine. Happens all the time. Smoke away! Green is bad. Stay away.
I'm in for this
I woke up this morning and said "you know what's missing in this world?" I'm in.
Sounds like a good value for money, even without the price drop.
With a little research... This fits cigars up to 58 ring gauge or. 58/64" or a hair over 7/8" or 23mm

Can anybody confirm? Your math looks just about right, but I've been burned (no pun intended) looking for cases.
For reasons unknown Drew Estate rolls with the "slightly fat" Robusto: 5x54 (Love the LP T-52s! And the more affordable Undercrowns are surprisingly also fantastic).
Seems like every 5-6" case I find is "up to 52 gauge" and anything that'll comfortably hold a 54 is 7+inches.
Chowderhead72
Thanks for gathering that info and letting the group know!
Seems like a fantastically low price for a carbon fiber case. A similar Lamborghini version comes in around $300 ...

I'd LOVE (wish I could make that even bigger) to see more cigar accessorie!!!
Verwilderd
Yes, even some quality lighters would be a nice change from the USB rechargeable models that are popular. And maybe some nice ashtrays, especially the freestanding models. Or travel humidors ... The list goes on ...
Anyone know what size cigars they'll hold?
Can these be used for carrying pens? I have a set of Tombow carbon fiber pens (one roller and one fountain) that would look awesome carried in there!

would doubt it. Cigars (even thin gauges ones) are much thicker than pens.
Verwilderd
So it would need some kind of lining inside. Not sure how this could be made.
I wish the manufacturer would offer it for pen enthusiasts! Imagine the combo with my Tombow carbon fiber pens!
I would like to meet the man or woman who woke up one day and thought to themselves "You know what is missing in this world? A carbon fiber cigar travel case".

I told you it was him being rudely funny.
Sorry, you might see swedges that could be sharpened at home, but you will never see blades with both sharp edges - because rules n stuff.
