A stable environment is the KEY to healthy cigars. Using an exclusive 2-way process, the Boveda 69% packet guarantees a constant humidity level in your humidor so your cigars' natural oils and sugars are preserved, allowing them to age gracefully. easy to use! Mildew, mold and bacteria resistant.
What one needs to appreciate is that these are but one piece of the humidity equation. One of the comments here note that this one 69% dull, etc. There is a reason these come in different humidity levels. A poor sealing humidor or very dry house may need a higher humidity packet to get to 69%.
I get two of these with each of my orders and throw them into my Humidor. I regular calibrate my hygrometer, and find that these give me a clean 69-71 percent humidity. I don t like any more than 70 percent so these are great.
Does the job perfectly, not too dry %26 not too moist. I might go to 72% in the winter, but 69% works very well for me.
The worst mistake I've ever made with my cigars is trying these 69% Bovedas. They left me with two humi's of dull, oil-less cigars. Boveda 75's are great however.. I'd purchased these trusting the name and looking for added combustibility in some smokes. Big mistake. This should NOT be sold for cigars imo. Extremely dissatisfied. (NB: I know how to care for my humidors)
